    I like your Brian Eno comment about the time machine

    Aww that's a shame, definitely check out 'Heliocentric' by The Ocean, brilliant album.

    Awesome, are you going to the Earthtone9/The Ocean/Maybeshewill/Human fly gig in May? Incredible line up, very excited about that show :)

    That is a quite wonderful coincidence sir! I take it you went to the Crippled Black Phoenix gig last night? Bloody tremendous show!

    Check out the uneditted Moonloop improvisation (Transmission IV) by Porcupine Tree. Well worth your time.

    SO PROUD OF MYSELF. Well, not really

    Man, that movie was pretty grim compared to every other Harry Potter film I've seen. Something about the lack of Hogwarts just sucks the colour out of it. In a good way.

    *all the AUDIBLE frequencies in the audio.

    Light's a good point, but I was talking specifically of sound. I guess you could come up with sounds by adding large amounts of sine waves together but I've looked at tons of audio waveforms at the most zoomed in area and they're not anywhere close to being represented by sines. I guess it's possible that many of the frequencies interpolated in the signals making them look completely dissimilar to sine waves are inaudible, but I find it incredibly difficult to believe to me that Nyquist accurately interpolates the troughs and peaks of all the frequencies in the audio unless the audio signal already approximates them.

    Inaudible to most people, anyway. Though your point about most sound systems being unable to produce it is probably a fair point, but even in cases of lesser frequencies like 8 kHz where the second harmonic is obviously audible to most people it'd be pretty poorly approximated by just approximately five and a half samples per oscillation. And while all sounds can certainly be expressed as sums of sine waves, the fact remains that sine waves are just as absent from nature as sawtooth waves etc.

    I get, that, but it's still a problem, because most waves in natural sound aren't anywhere near close to being sine waves. For instance, a triangle wave at 11,025 Hz (well within the range of human hearing) would be misinterpreted as a sine wave, even though the two have completely different and easily distinguishable sounds, because it has only four samples (at the peak, the trough, and the middle), and it interpolates the material between them the same. Square and sawtooth waves would be even more misinterpreted. Like I said, you get close approximations, but they're not identical, which is why the extra samples up to, say, 96 kHz help, even though you can't hear the highest frequencies in those samples.

    I may be misunderstanding the way that digital music stores its signals, but from the huge amount of research and audio editing I've done it seems that if a signal propagates 44,100 times a second, a sound with a frequency of, say, 18 kHz isn't going to be stored exactly accurately, even though it's below 22.05 kHz. It'll be a relatively close approximation because there are 2.45 samples for every oscillation of the wave, but that's not a particularly large amount of samples considering that it has to reach its troughs and peaks 18,000 times a second, and if they're not fully divisible then most of the samples won't have the wave in or near its trough or peak, and thus won't fully accurately capture its sound. So I'm under the impression that you really need more samples to fully represent the full range of sound. I could have been misinformed about the way this works, but your explanation doesn't really make sense to me.

    er, directly divisible *into*. Also yeah, on most people's stereo equipment the difference probably isn't noticeable, but either way most digital recordings of cymbals sound awful to me. Though I guess the fact that most of them these days are brickwalled doesn't help either...

  • Cassandra-Leo

    While it's true that most people's hearing tops out at about 22 kHz the fact remains that the way digital audio stores data means that there's very little information for a lot of the upper frequencies, meaning what while it may technically have information for, say, >11.025 kHz, the information it has is pretty minimal compared to what an analogue signal has, except for frequencies that are directly divisible by 44.1 kHz (say, 11.025 and 22.05). So it sounds substantially less natural than the analogue version of the same signal, which is why people generally make vinyl rips at much higher frequencies even though people can't hear the frequencies at the top of the rips. Though I've seen rips at 192 kHz, which is just ridiculous overkill.

Om mig

So yeah, I buy music, and I listen to albums, and also, I use Winamp. My antique mp3 player does not scrobble, and my CDs on my hifi obviously do not, so bear in mind this is only half the ever so exciting story of "What Some Dick Was Listenin' To, Just Recently, Sir"

Also, I make music. If you can call it that. You can hear it at Bandcamp. I'm right in the middle of remixing and remastering my back catalogue, so a lot of it is several years old.
