Re: Soundcard recommendations?

Do yourself the favour and have a look at the Seraph PCI cards by Marian. Pretty much incredibly good quality, I think. 32bit DA btw.! I almost can't imagine any interface being more "invisible" in a good sense. The software router is amazing, too. Thanks :) All are PCI only? I looked and couldn't ...

Re: Soundcard recommendations?

http://www.prismsound.com/music_recording/products_subs/lyra/lyra_home.php Lyra 1 seems spot on for this kind of sampling. Interesting indeed. Couldn't find a danish retailer for it, but a german one had it, so could be an option, thanks :) there is no "minimum acceptable" i guess. the best result ...

Re: Soundcard recommendations?

Thanks :)

Yes, for my use a windows-driver is needed, since I'm on windows.

96kHz sample-rate is the minimum acceptable, correct?
Or would 44kHz-only programs also have a future?

Soundcard recommendations?

Looking for sound-card recommendations :) The minimum requirements etc. Other tools that are especially useful for NAT-related work. For now I've been testing NAT workflow only at 44kHz with a simple setup, but interested in people's suggestions for hardware needed to make professionally acceptable ...

sine-sweep rate

Would it make sense to have the sine-tone sweep through the spectrum with a rate that was inverse-exponential? Using a 60 second long sweep: Currently it spends about 28 seconds going from 0Hz-100Hz, but only about 15 seconds going from 1kHz-10kHz. Unless I'm missing something, wouldn't it be more e...

Harmonic distortions worth sampling?

(Pardon me for all the questions) I have set-up an analog test-chain to learn how to use NAT3pro in Sampler-mode. When I use the analyzer in NAT and test for harmonic-distortions, it shows that the signal at 1kHz peaks normally and then it shows some harmonic distortions that are all below 100dB (th...

Re: adjusting volume when sampling?

I found the answer :)

They can be ignored.

Thank you

Re: adjusting volume when sampling?

Attack and Release files for compressors only.
So I can ignore them when sampling a pre-amp?

Is it enough to only sample the long test-tone with the sine-sweeps?

Or do I still need to also sample those 2 files through the analog hardware?

adjusting volume when sampling?

I generate the test-tones... I get 3 of them... The long one with all the sine-sweeps at decreasing volume. I also get 2 small ones called: "*_EA.wav" and "*_ER.wav" I'm currently test-sampling an EQ VST to learn things before I begin sampling some hardware. So I add the EQ and run these 3 test-tone...

offline vs online sampling?

So we can sample hardware directly or in offline-mode. When using the sampler we set latency... When we sample offline we don't set latency... So is there any difference to the deconvolved result between these 2 modes? Is the deconvolution more precise when it's done via the direct-sampler (since it...
