Default Clapton foot stomps

Anyone know the sounds from Clapton Unplugged made by him stomping his foot on the wooden stage as he plays? Any idea what frequency? Seems low 40hz-ish. Just curious.

Default tears from heavan

I think he was tapping at about 1.5 Hz.

His ankle would get too tired if he tried 40 Hz.

Default it is an impulse noise

so as such, it does not have a defined frequency. I suspect that it was filtered so it would just occupy the bottom portion of a spectum analyzer.

So, we are talking about the frequency of the stomps sound, not the frequency they occur!

Go figure.

Default ok, I'll bite

Not the number of times his foot contacts the stage in a given time period.

Not the sound of the shoe striking the stage.

The sound of the hollow stage resonating after he stomps it with his foot. It's deep and boomy like a huge drum. It's also more pronounced on some tracks than others. While screwing around with my sub recently I listened to some music with the sub amp cranked up quite a bit (neat for HT, lousy for almost all music) and this sound caught me by surprise. The sub is anechoically flat to 25hz so it's probably a bit thick at the low end with room gain to begin with.

Well find out...

Git the google key and find a spectum analyzer. Download. Record sound to wav file, run through software. It should show you. I would do it, but I don't have the CD - not that big a Clapton fan.

Default Aha!

I'm so glad I'm not the only person to be annoyed/confused by the foot stomp noise on that track! I reckon the sound is 30-50hz fundamental too

I have a sub which is modelled as flat to 21hz(!!!) and I agree , some recordings have silly bass on them, I suspect the mastering kit is often not so perfect/flat in the bass and the engineer cranks some low bass sounds now and then. I don't know, maybe it's all natural or intended.

Sorry, I'm a little drunk
