Had the oscilloscope out again. Nothing earth shattering though.
Line level = 0dB
|Roger Reynolds' Archipelago...deep string note.
Instrument: Acoustic Bass
|Tori Amos, Welcome to Sunny Florida...electric bass and kick drum...
Instr: Kick Drum
Instr: Electric Bass
Electric bass lower frequency, kick drum larger signal...
Correlating with loudness curves, bass notes need to be larger to sound loud.http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...nd/eqloud.html
Also, as far as hearing safety, a dBA measurement suppresses lower frequencies as in contour A below. (Borrowed a dB meter and noticed that the 85dBA scale, used as the EU directive, filters down the bass notes... : )http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...und/acont.html
(Hope the tags are working for other people. They haven't been working for me. Going to try to restart windows... hehehe... guess "BB Codes Temporarily Disabled")
