Decibel and Meters – VI

Loudness Manager or Loudness Engineer In summary, controlling the loudness of a music program is fundamental not only to fit reenter in the normative terms of law (see broadcast and limits un live) but also to follow recommendations by performed studies and experiments guarantee at the time the best possible solution to get quality sound … Continue reading Decibel and Meters – VI

Where do we find the meter in the most commonly used audio equipment? Following the path that generally goes through the audio signal we see what common equipment (modern) use the scales in decibels and how. Premise There is no defined meter number, the number of meters depends on how many channels / signals we … Continue reading Decibel and Meters – V

Digital Meter The digital meter (fig. 1) are the meter that identifies the output values and the signal input to digital scale used in digital audio equipment (after the A/D converter and before the D/A converter when it comes to analog inputs and outputs and software. Fig. 1 At the hardware level they are such … Continue reading Decibel and Meter – III

Meter Types We said that the meters have been created to facilitate the reading of the voltage circulating in audio equipment so that you know when the signal level is low, high, right, so as not to create distortions, maintain proper dynamic and correctly interface different devices audio. As it regards to the structure of … Continue reading Decibel and Meter – II

Decibel and Meter – I

The Decibel is the logarithmic measure unit used for the sound, but depending on its application has its own scale and reference values. We leave aside for the moment the decibel acoustic (pressure, power, density and loudness) that requires arguments apart and instead concentrate on the scales and measurements in decibels used in analog and … Continue reading Decibel and Meter – I
