    Hi Dom,

     

    "Calibration limit control" allows you to set the frequency range that you want calibrated.

    The settings are determined based on each correction curve, so the exact frequency values will vary from curve to curve. Play around with various settings and have a look on the graph, you'll see how the limits change.

    Chances are that you won't hear difference between the aggressive setting and the neutral in the highs, since it's unlikely that you're hearing really goes up to 20 kHz. If so, you can leave it at neutral and you may save a few dB's of gain reduction introduced by calibration. Just make sure that you're listening to material that has rich content in the upper highs when choosing your calibration limit control.

    It's similar with calibration limits for lower frequencies - if you're using smaller monitors, maybe they're not capable of reproducing 40 Hz and below, so there's no use for correction to boost these frequencies, as they will just eat up headroom and won't be audible.If that's the case, go with the Reduced setting.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Indrikis,

     

    thanks for your answear.

     

    A really hear the difference, that's why i asked ;)

    I wanted to know, if in aggressive mode on the Highs, the software enhance/boost something or is it natural and just as it should be in a perfect word.

    Cause what i hear is more width, and i losse a little of the centre, like when you use a plugin to make the stereo more large.

    Thanks.

    Aggressive mode per se doesn't boost anything, it just lifts the calibration limit, so the calibration is applied all the way up to 20kHz. If there is a boost near 20 kHz in the calibration curve, then Aggressive mode will allow this boost to be applied.  

    Since in a lot of mixes the highest frequencies are mixed very wide, the aggressive calibration limit can have such an effect if calibration applies boost to higher frequencies.

    Hope this helps!
