How dependant are quality and seriousness of any media for you

  1. Don't care if the info is right

    0 vote(s)
  2. Find it disturbing but it's ok if the info helps

  3. I automaticly doubt, the info and quality may be to the same standards.

  4. I can't stand it, I can't listen to more than a few seconds

  5. I'm producing low quality media on purpose myself

    pcrecord Don't you want the best recording like I do ? Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I know I'm a youtube addict and I should quit listening to gear and studio review online.
    What made me boiled down my shirt today is that I just ran on another Mastering video with poor audio.
    I mean o_O ??? If you are to promote your studio and services by giving advice online, why the h..l not taking time to do it right and show you are Worth it ?

    Listen to the background noises and/or bad sound of these :


    Ok bashing done !! Sorry I had to say it !

    What about this one???....

    Its ironic that a video of a speech by one of the most influential people in the world of audio has such poor quality audio itself
    Must have been embarassing to poor old Rupert...at one stage he has to stop and complain about the feedback through the PA system

    On yeah, an acetate projector in 2001 ? Sorry but at that time I had a laptop and a projector at home... And look at the cover of the table...
    At least it's a live situation, you can excuse a bit less quality.. ;)

    Did you get the messed up information in the "In The Box" Mastering Tutorial with Pro Tools 9 and Waves Plug-ins'' in the OP ?¸
    Go at 6:50 as he shows it doesn't understand how the pultec attenuation works.., LOL ! Man the boost and the attenuation are not on the same frequency.. I didn't listen to the whole video, just random check up for the quality of the video and BAM I found his misconsception of the classic EQ... :D

    Seriously, If you are going to host Rupert Neve of all people, don't you think you would put a little effort into making sure whoever was manning the PA at least set the levels so the thing wasn't feeding back on him?
    Its at CRAS for crying out loud
    I do give some consolation to the fact that its a live recording, but no doubt they have the equipment and the basic knowledge of live recording to do better than this
    It reminds me of the old saying my father use to say.....even the cobblers got holes in his shoes...

    I was running a session for UK music technology examiners, the intention to play them submissions and then explain how the marks were produced and even out the marking standard so everyone marked the same. Some marking areas were:
    Stereo field
    noise and distortion
    balance and blend.

    We had around 60 people in a big room, and the exam board supplied a 10W per channel portable stereo. We were near Tottenham court rd in London, and went out and bought a big pair of speakers and a decent amp, plus a CD player. Even then, people not in the middle had no clue as to stereo. With all those videos above, audio quality varies from ok, not really an issue to pretty awful, but people would probably argue content, not quality is king - but I agree, it's a bit of a joke!

    I agree with you there Paul, the content is important
    Even if some of the information is indeed mis-information...
    Maybe the dude in the video does not want to let the cat out of the bag, or he is just a dill

    You'd be surprised by how many people don't know how the Pultec works, pal. Also, quite a few who don't know that the attack and release adjustments on the 1176 are "backwards" from that of other compressors.

    The internet can be a great knowledge base - but there's a whole lotta garbage out there, too. Just one example out of many: I can't count the number of people I've run into who have covered their studios from top to bottom with 1" auralex, all in an effort to tame bass frequencies.. lol.
