Some of us are just looking for some quick answers! I don't want anyone to have to take a course in audio engineering just to get the gist of the article on EQ.
Some things about me
- I like to write things people can read.
- I’m much
more likelylikelier to cut words than add them.
- I believe in using words like “pitch”, “loudness” and “sound” as well as “frequency”, “amplitude” and “signal”.
- Translate articles pertaining to sound effects and recording from Gearweigan to English, since not everyone is born knowing what "signal", "line-level", "gain" and "outboard" are.
- Vastly improve the articles pertaining to analog recording.
