Some things I thought might be difficult actually understand what they sound like, without hearing them first:
- intermodulation and harmonic distortion
- track fed through a tube (of course, heavily exaggerating the tube's distortion etc)
- compression and limiting
- bit depth (for example: gradually going down from 24 to 1 much akin to what bit crusher effects do but I don't know are they accurate)
- frequency response (recessed/emphasized low/mid/high)
few questions arise:
1. would this sort of a library actually make sense, what terms should it include?
2. what would be a good reference track, and who would actually feel like doing all this?
3. format? I suppose 24-bit/44.1KHz lossless but nothing less would do.
4. would it be most sensitive to stick to measurable terms, and not venture into the dark/warm/natural/neutral/analytical-terms?
