Burn In Noise Files?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Anyone have any good burn in files? I searched the forum and found a couple of members have put together nice combinations of brown/pink/white noise but all the download links seem to be broken. Anyone have any current links?

get some AC/DC tracks, that should do the burn-in nicely.

Do you have audacity? You can use it to generate a white/pink/brown noise file yourself.

What's wrong with simply using good ol' fashioned music?

I usually let Pandora run for a weekend .  You can get good variety with the right station.

I run Burninwave Generator 0.9.  You can get it from http://www.burninwave.com/.  I like it...its lightweight, it can generate white or pink noise, a frequency sweep, or a continuous tone.  For long term burn ins, it has a built in timer that will stop the process for a period of time to let everything cool off, mellow, or whatever during the breaks.

I'm using these now too, but just the pink and brown noise.

White noise is bad because there is chance you may blow the drivers. There have been tweeters blown by it in the past.

I can see how that would be a problem in speakers: tweeters have to handle a lot of power and greater excursion than headphone drivers. White noise shouldn't be as much of a problem with headphones assuming a sane volume level and the typical equalization that shelves the treble frequencies due to HRTF compensation curves. My question isn't rhetorical though, I don't know, maybe a fresh headphone diaphragm/magnet assembly is particularly sensitive to some kinds of signal.

Thread revival :)

As far as I can tell, burninwave.com (I read that in my head as Burning Wave, for some odd reason XD) is down, and has been for quite some time now. Apart from generating my own noise (that just sounds do wrong for some reason), where else can I get pink noise, frequency sweeps, and the like in WAV?

 

Cheers!

Heavy decibels are playing on my guitar
We got vibrations comin' up from the floor
We're just listenin' to the rock
That's givin' too much noise
Are you deaf you wanna hear some more

Well, if it's to loud, you will blow up your video !

No, seriously, if it's to loud.. You are to old :)

 

This being the Sound-science forum .. How about some actual evidence that it matters fåk-all ??

How many cycles (please note, NOT time, but rather oscillation cycles) of the voicecoil/diaphragm does it take to achieve "burn-in"?
