Video Tutorial Online! Switching To TIMED Kernels

Postby david1103 » Fri Aug 31, 2012 11:24 pm

hello,

i was asked via PM some questions on switching to using TIMED kernels for better sound quality. I offered to do a video tutorial and blog article, so here it is!

http://www.learndigitalaudio.com/blog/n ... ed-kernels

there is an audio example in FLAC to download too.

if there are any errors please let me know and i will correct them asap.

it took me the whole day. i hope it is useful. if you like it please consider joining my email list or clicking 'like' on the big facebook box on the right :D

I will do more of this type of thing if i get good feedback, but it takes forever! enjoy...

Big THANKS for the tutorial AND for doing a video.

The included test audio as well.

So, like many, I too was following the 'Timed Kernal' discussion ... including the apparent 'quality' changes.

First ... if it is at all possible ...

Can you supply the original, unaltered audio clip along with the 2 processed files ?

There is NO question that the 2 processed clips have significant differences, but without the original audio to compare, it is not a complete test.

Maybe not the best choice of wording ... but, I'm wanting to be able to critically compare ... of course, your tutorial has made it much clearer for me to do my own testing. Prior to this, I've been quite reluctant to mod Nebula at this point [mostly due to so much other testing that I'm involved with].

Anyways ... thanks again for doing this! I'll look forward to any other postings you may do!

Again ... to really complete this comparison, the original is indispensable :)

Thanks!
Sincerely.

oh BTW ...

This may very well make me REDO all of my previous work :shock:

Great job man! I wish you would consider writing a good manual for Nebula. Why? Because to me although I appreciate their effort, the existing one reads like a Japanese manual translated into English by a high school student. I actually did try to read it but just surrendered to using the plug to as is.

This should be stickied. Also if you want to do a chain of this, get nebulaman. Takes the headache away of having to freeze everything.

Indeed, but there is more to getting higher quality than just these mods , these are mods I stated way back in the transient quality thread . A manual maybe a good idea . If you want higher quality again you should be using lower buffer settings ,if say you go from 512 samples to 128 you can hear a big leap in quality again . You can get down to 16 samples if you mod the xml ,But you can only do this probably at 44.1 to 48khz.I use a lower buffer setting in favour over pure timed and use splithd , increase to 10ms on the timed side and reducing freq by the same amount.It is a better balance of quality vs cpu this way .Just find out what is best for your setup
