This topic was created before release of the latest product version, and it may contain details irrelevant to this version.  Replying is disabled for this topic.

Hi,

I would like to see more monitoring options in CurveEQ (which is a brilliant tool!):

a) Input AVG

b) Input PeakAVG

c) Input & Output AVG

d) Input & Output PeakAVG

I would also like to suggest to rename Peak to PeakAVG to make it more intuitive.

Btw, The whole user-interface should be reworked and made more user-friendly.  There are so many options and funktion burried in so little space.  It's hard to even discover it.  Just make the GUI a little bigger and you will not habve a problem in making everything more user-friendly :-)

Loundness-Compensation as provided in Har-Bal would also be an useful feature, but the suggestions above are more important!

best, drjee


... and I have one more suggestion:

Is it possibile to provide an "auto-smoothing" feature? should work like this:

a) capture the average spectrum.

b) calculate an eq curve which eliminates any string peaks (maybe two modes: one which makes the curve very smooth, and one which does only light smoothing)

this would be great!

best, drjee


These options may appear in CurveEQ 3.0.  It may be awhile before it gets released, but this should be a worthy update overall.

For loudness compensation I will probably implement an in-out level difference counter.  That should be enough to fine-tune the out gain control.

I'll think about your 'auto-smoothing' idea.  Sounds like this function could be useful.


drjee - What is a string peak ?  Thanx

it was a typo but I guess Aleksey got what I meant to say: strong peaks

thanks for your reply, very much appreciated. eagerly waiting for V3

best, drjee


Oh strong peaks...hehe - I can't see the forest for the trees somedays...

If I want to eliminate strong peaks in a song wouldn't I just use Soniformer, adjust the spectrum speed to acceptable averaging, use the threshold to 'wrap' the spectrum shape, adjust a fast attack/release using the peak detector?  Varying the ratio/threshold gives light smoothing or more smoothing as desired.

I'd like to hear what CurveEQ could do with strong peaks - that would make for an interesting sound I bet!


And a multichannel option for 3.0 would be good....

Neil, I get your drift. :) Still, CurveEQ 3 is in the plans, only.  We are focusing on Mac port these weeks, so no new large projects can be started.  But after Mac port is ready I will have much more motivation and a better technical base to work on CurveEQ 3.
