hi at all , i am tryng to use Spectrumatch but I can't figure out how because I don't understood the theory behind : Are there references on the transfer a spectrum's slope from one recording to another for musical use?

P.S. don't be afraid to speak with me with

hard math :)


You may check the CurveEQ User's Manual.  I think it discusses this subject indepth.

Basically, before matching your program material, you should capture the spectrum you wish your material to sound like.

After the initial spectrum capture is done, all you need is to use the match function.


Thank you for your response: obviously I have checked the manual for that but I think that a step-by-step tutorial with real sounds examples and all the tricks you known to obtain the maximum result would be better in order to disclose your application.

It could be hosted on your site for optimal visibility.


Martin - there's also some good tips in the posts here - that's how I learned it along with researching other similar types of 'matching' EQ product manuals.  There's lost of discussion about spectrum matching on KVR effects forum also - pros and cons.  What to expect, etc.

There's all kinds of silly thing you can do with it.  For example right now I split a stereo wave I'm trying to rebalance into 2 seperate waves in Sonar3.  Then I have a Curve EQ inserted on the 2 tracks that are now panned left and panned right.

I'll catch some heat for this I guess - hehe - but I matched each track to pink noise using a 60 point match and attenuated all the points above 300Hz to 0dB.  This gives a quick shape to the bass.  I could just've easily selected 'average' monitoring and built a curve myself to get a smoother slope.

There are also a couple of resonances down in there like at 160Hz that I could look at using 'peak' monitoring and push that one down a bit further using a combination of EQ and multiband compression like Soniformer2 gives me.  I don't want to push all of the life out of the bottom end using EQ (especially peaks) so that's why a bit of compression will help only push it down when it crosses a threshold.

Anyway - that's what I do in my home studio.

Good Curving !

ED: I forgot to mention - of the portion that I do spectrumatch I usually use the attenuate arrows to bring the new EQ curve down to 2-3dB gain (pos or neg gain that is) and then adjust it from there to taste.
