当使用正常化
Mo Volans on Sun, February 20th | 9 comments
There are some basic processes that remain firmly in the "jargon category" to some beginners. Although Normalization is available as a feature in just about every DAW (and Audio Editing software) some

有一些基本过程,依然牢牢的“行话类”,一些初学者。虽然正常化是在几乎所有的DAW的功能(和音频编辑软件),有些用户可能仍然不知道什么时候使用它。

Hopefully this Quick Tip will go some way to clarifying when to apply normalization techniques to your music.

什么是规范化?

由于这只是一个程序的简短说明,我们将不深入,过多地进入数学。从本质上讲,规范化是一个过程,没有预先定义的最大裁剪提高任何音频水平。

当音频是归你的软件将搜索峰值水平的文件,并提出这项定义的最高水平。然后将其余的文件提出了相同的相对水平。这是如何实现零裁剪的。

许多应用程序简化了正常化的进程,并使用默认的最大0分贝而另一些则允许用户预先定义的水平。您通常会发现专用的专业采样编辑器,如山顶PRO(OSX)和波达(Windows)中,将体育更全面的功能设置。

何时正常化

正常化可以是一个伟大的工具,样品或记录的水平迅速提高,而不必担心有关剪报。请记住这仅仅是一个信号的相对提升,因此没有真正的处理正在发生。你的声音应该听起来相同,因为它去!

申请正常化是理想的阶段之后,您已经应用了一些加工和出口的结果。压缩,调制效果或其他一些过程可能降低您的收益。正常化可以帮助你在这里。

当然,你可以简单地提高增益,但申请正常化可以速战速决,给你一个很好的源健康的增益水平。这可能会经常帮你一个充满活力的声音混合,并给你一个很好的热信号进入进一步处理器。

与时俱进谨慎

有情况时,你可能要想想作为一个选项正常化两次。这种情况的主要原因是增加增益使用任何技术时,它的不只是你的信号电平增加,但任何噪音或缺陷,目前在您的音频水平。

考虑到这一点,如果你选择正常化的一个非常安静的的记录,具有相当高的本底噪声,噪声将增加的信号。这只会导致更高的噪音水平,这是从来没有一件好事。

在这种情况下,它可能是一个好主意,回到了绘图板,或认为有关恢复或降噪工具。虽然在许多情况下,可以正常化是一个非常有用的工具,肯定是一个过程,要注意的。

    Great article! When you're doing your own work and Logic is the final and finished output, normalizing is a nice way to top it off. I agree, back it off of 0db. I use -1db down because Most internet downloads come out louder. Sometimes it helps. It might be worth mentioning that if the final mix is heading to a mastering house, they prefer it not be normalized and like their track levels left with at least 6-9dbs of headroom.

    Is it okay to normalize the output of the project in the bounce section ? any advantages/disadvantages of doing so ?

    Victor... 100% agree with your comments there ;) and Harmonik, yep you can normalise in the bounce section. This is exactly the same as normalising using any other method.

    Harmonik, Logic has so much headroom it is quit literally impossible to overload it internally. If any track were hitting 0db or higher, the beauty of Logic is you can simply lower the level, even at the output. If the level is goin into a plug in, that is another story and clipping or overload can occur. Logic is able to Handel incredibly diverse levels. Normalizing works well to balance up tracks in the mixing stage without leaning on compressors. I liked the part in this article where Mo points out, the ideal time for normalizing is after putting some processing on the track. That is a great tip to keeping you mix in "homeostasis"... So to speak.

    This article got me thinking... When recording music (as I understand it) there's three phases (recording, mixing and mastering). You guys have plenty of tutorials on each of these, but I'm not sure how one blends into the other. Victor mentioned that mastering engineers like a few db of headroom. This was news to me, but obviously, a very important bit of info. Any thoughts on a tutorial where you follow a song from microphone to iTunes (or CD)? Just a thought. Thanks for all the great content!

    There are a lot of good mastering facilities which usually specify what they like for file format and so forth. I would do some checking and get a feel for what you're looking for answer wise. Each facility will want something specific but almost all need some headroom to treat the material so 6-9 dbs as a good rule of thumb but not written in stone.

    Do mastering engineers allow clients to sit in sessions ?

  • What happens to the quality of music that's been normalized twice. For example: I'm ripping and recording old disks and tapes I have and saving them as WAV files. Sometimes the volumes don't come out the same even though the burning program is checked to normalize. Separate programs for ripping or recording have a normalize feature, so it could be done once there and then again in the burning program, but does this make the music sound a bit flat or odd ? Thanks .... Alan
