Video: Clifford Henricksen - Identifying Spectral Excess in Musical Sounds

I watched and listened to a bit of this (first experience for me!) and although it's obvious that the camera-mic is on a mighty AGC processor (background noise swoops up heavily between phrases), it's amazing how much of this presentation gets through to the listener. You can actually hear a lot of the spectral differences. Also, I think the camera was in the back of the room so it's pretty impressive how the L1 sounds so close.

I'm listening on Bose TriPorts, very normal-sounding. Some phones (my Sony's) are much brighter, so be careful. Actaully it's the differences that matter, so from this standpoint it doesn't matter. I wish we had recorded right off the L1, in mono. Nevertheless, this is probably pretty useful.

Thanks ST.
