    Tutorial: Most elegant way to run a high quality EQ on OS X

    It's not quite record mode even though the button looks like it, it's more of a session that's been started.   You can see the option under Control / Start Session   To actually record the output to a file, you must add a RECORDED device under OUTPUTS.  As long as you're using an OUTPUT...

    Tutorial: Most elegant way to run a high quality EQ on OS X

    Super easy.  Just install Audio Hijack and Nova, then you'll see it available under AUDIO UNIT EFFECTS and you can simply drag it into the signal chain.  Be sure to start the session to hear it in action.   Have fun! zambz

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

    Just wanted to say that almost a year into owning my open EL-8s, I still absolutely love them.  Having recently gotten more back into music production, I have also started using them as an open pair of headphones for production and mixing.   Make no mistake about it friends, these are...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      <rant> Agreed re the HD800.  What's the point of a great soundstage and comfort when the frequency balance is completely unmusical and just plain awful.  The 6kHz peak also masks the fact that the treble on the HD-800 lacks extension and leaves a lot to be desired.  People calling the HD-800...

    Audeze's 2016 revamp, re-voiced and re-engineered headphones, the entire line (except Sine and EL8 Ti; these have updates as standard)

    Huge thank you for putting this together.  I suspect that the EL-8s actually underwent a revision last year between the first batch / late prototype and the production release too due to the huge differences between my measurements and impressions vs Tyll at innerfidelity.  I also noticed an...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      Have Audeze attached a revision number to the updates or is it still just the EL-8?  How will I know which revision I'm listening to if I visit a store?

    Widening stereo image using an uncoloured stereo widening plugin

    Hi guys, hope you're all well.   There's a very simple technique that is used in audio processing to narrow and widen a stereo image.  I used to use it all the time during production and even coded a plugin which did it too back when there were limited options.  The algorithms involved are...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      Thanks so much, keep us posted if you hear back from Audeze, I'm curious to know for sure whether the earpads are removable.   Just one little note re EQ, parametric EQ is the only type of EQ I would ever consider using and when you use a world class digital EQ such as DMG Audio's...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      Yeah that's true.  I haven't tried the HD-700 thoroughly.  My biggest problem with both of them is that I don't love the way they sound, even after EQ in the case of the HD-800).     Yeah, that's what I'm thinking about, but I actually don't think that the earpads are replaceable on the...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

    Still loving the sound of these but honestly finding comfort to be an issue.  My right ear is a tad bigger than my left, and it seems to slightly rub with the fazor which becomes painful after a while.  I also find the clamping pressure hasn't gotten better.   I'm wondering if I can do...

    Phones that work reliably with the Chord Mojo

      Thanks.  I've just updated the opening post with some more info we can gather.  Can I grab your OS version and what apps you listen to music on?   Really appreciate your help :)

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      Wow, I had no idea.  The store I listened to them at usually gets early stock from Audeze, so it's possible that Audeze made some significant tweaks since the original few batches.  The ones I heard took me about 10 seconds to take off my head and say, ewwwww.  The fella at the store said...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      Thanks so much, I really hope so.  Yeah since this is a Google Play Edition, it's running the very latest stock Android, so it's equivalent to a Nexus basically.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      Thanks a lot. yeah I enabled Developer Options already but the option simply doesn't exist.  Do you think that the OTG cable could cause this or is it more likely the phone itself?

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      Sadly this option does not exist on my phone.  Keep in mind that it's a HTC One M8 "Google Play Edition" which means it runs completely stock Android 6.0.   Any further ideas are welcome of course :)
