Hum, I just found something in the current software revision that is, at least for me, very annoying.

When you import a curve, let's say in output graph, the level is automatically normalized to 0 dB at 1 kHz. It seems that you can't adjust anything here.

So let's say you import a subwoofer response, it is not uncommon to be at -20 or -30 dB at 1 kHz... you can guess what the response looks

I would like be able either to be able to offset the all response or to choose the frequency at which the curve is normalized...

In the mean time, an easy fix would be to add a box to tick (or untick) to disable the 1 kHz normalization

Hi Shaun,

Priorities are as follow:
- Manual
- Soft/Firm revision
- Expansion board (not fully depending on me)

One of my work colleagues is from Cape Town. He doesn't know you - we never know Seems like a pretty place to be!

Can you please develop? What application would you have in mind?

Indeed, there's normalization taking place at 1 kHz. It makes especially sense when you're loading several curves on the same graph panel. I had already long debates with Shaun on this topic. In the meantime you can zoom in/out and drag the graph. We'll see what we can do.

Best,

Nick

Sorry, I can't follow you on that. Let's take another example:

you want to design the crossover for a 4 way loudspeaker, so you want to load the curves for the sub, low mid, high mid and high drivers. What will be the look on the same graph panel if you load the 4 curves normalized at 0 dB at 1 kHz. no use at all specially for the sub and the tweeter curves...

The system is actually a bit smarter than that. Relative levels are maintained when you load several curves: the system will select one curve as the normalizing reference, and will move all curves relative to that reference. Give it a try and let me know if it doesn't make sense.

Best,

Nick

Nick, perhaps now's a good time to have a squiz at my app note and see if it may be of use here.

Yes, you are right indeed, but I still think that it is a pain not to have control on the overall level... Let me give you another example: It is important to be able to load several curves of the same driver in box at different angle to differentiate what you need to correct and what not to. As you can load only one curve per channel, I use other channels just to visualize them. I like this better than just averaging curves all together.
