Topic: This is how *I* like my FLUTE.

    This is how *I* like my FLUTE.

    This flute is unsurpassed in my opinion, and it\'ll probably always miles ahead of everything else, but apart from the obvious incredible playability (this was thrown together in realtime - directly into sound forge, just random improvisation) it has an amazing tone (the flute player is GREAT) and it sounds present, even in a concert hall environment such as this.

    Hey Thomas!

    I recently listened a arrangement for three flutes, this is about the same... still I miss the bowing at the end [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Out of curiosity - after I listened with headphones to it - I did a frequency analysis of the three demos that are around, because you mentioned it, and I think the results are really intersting.

    Discalaimer: Keep in mind the demos are different levels, and mp3.


    1. Thomas_J\'s Flute




    2. Kirk Hunter\'s Flute




    3. Francis Belardino\'s Flute

    PS: I invite the demo posters to comment it!

    OK I am reluctant to admit that I do not understand the graph.

    Explain what it means.

    I know what it is but what does it mean?

    Very cool post!!

    Francis, the x-axis is frequency and the y-axis is amplitude. You can see the relative levels in decibels at specific frequencies in the graph. And, by the way, the blue/purple are the left/right channels.

    So, you can, for instance, see that there is a sharp falloff at 21kHz in Thomas_J\'s flute, and a steady drop in level from 4kHz to 16kHz in your flute, whereas Kirk\'s seems to be a bit weak in the upper range, although it\'s not totally absent.

    Please keep in mind that my flute is just a freebie made of six wavs ... I’m not trying to compete with VSL or KH.

    So what does all of the above tell you? The graph.

    Sorry, but is this a joke?

    I mean, opinions or conclusions based on the graphs.

    Just to add to what I\'ve said above, it looks like the high frequencies in Kirk\'s demo are very low in level and close to the noise floor. There also seems to be a dip in the low highs at 6kHz to 11kHz that isn\'t present in the other two.

    Could it not just be an exercise in curiosity?

    Does it have to been an opinion?
