    Hi am new to the forum
    got two questions
    does anyone know what the two acoustic spaces used in recording and mixing audio are and their use?

    What is a 3 Band EQ and what type of processing do we associate
    with it?

    The two acoustic spaces are, as I think of it.
    Recording studio. Used for playing and recording in.
    Monitoring Room. Used for listening to whats being recorded and mixing.

    A three band EQ is basically three overlapping band pass filters which you can attenuate. Low Mid and High. You can boost or drop the three frequency sections amplitude.

    Do you have google or wiki?

    Right, and who is "we"?

    You and me constitute "we", I suppose.

    So, what type of processing does Ben and Space associate with EQ?

    Beuller, Beuller, anyone...?

    Good for you. You also have course material from your place of study?

    Maybe its just me, but before you declare a "major" wouldn't you KNOW this stuff?

    I could understand this question coming from an introduction to audio class but....

    Am I weird for answering his question?
    I study robotics engineering, so I only guessed my answer. Thinking more about it I would probably only use one band pass and an high pass and a low pass filter. Depends on if I wanted all the frequencies or just what we can hear. Also, my knowledge of digital signal processing only extends to using MATLAB functions on non-realtime signals. My knowledge of analogous signal filters only extends to making cross-overs. Is a 3-band EQ on a cheap ass mixer just cross-overs with a potentiometer?
    I haven't got one around to open up and look.

    maybe he's a freshman and doesnt really know yet.

    but, he SHOULD know that "alot" is not a word. "a lot" is much more appropriate because it's grammatical.

    Greener - you're not weird for answering his question, just trying to be helpful. But I think Bent nailed it - this was a homework assignment.

    While I'm all for using this forum as a resource to enhance one's education (including my own), it really bugs me to see verbatim questions posted like this, just waiting for someone else to do the thinking and fill in the blanks.

    At least damumm was polite enough to say thanks, but I don't think he was done any favors in the long run....

    If you look at the structure of damn Umms questions...the answer is in each one ;)

    This is jp22 with a cap and gown!!!

    I Googled jp22 to find out what Space meant...
    So gold, currently 7 pages into "Expert sugguestions on an advanced guitar recording setup"
    So many free laughs, sooo many.
    Anyways, if only I could be like jp22. Ignorance is bliss.
    The fact I know I know nothing (except that I know nothing), doesn't stop me typing.

    Actually alot is a word but it means to mete out, dole out, distribute, assign. Mincing words again. Back to the topic.

    hueseph: I think alot in that sense is actually "allot" as in "at the alloted time". No, Firefox, it doesn't have a double T. lol, Firefox says "Firefox" is wrong.
    (Using FF now I'm trying to move to Linux - will post elsewhere on how it goes).
