Re: [ARSCLIST] Absolute Polarity

Interesting! Wonder why the two sides of a record wold be different? (Bob O, do you know?)

I have worked with a radio program set with two hosts - he was top heavy, she had peaks higher below the line. I never did find out if it was the mics, the pres, or her voice, and she has passed on now. I have a sneaky feeling he gave her the inferior mic...

This backs up my unscientific observation of what "sounds right" having now transferred over 1000 hours of spoken-word recordings. A surprising number of old LPs have one side "top heavy" waveforms and one side "bottom heavy." Reversing the polarity of the "bottom heavy" nearly always improves voice clarity and make the voice stand out more against the surface noise.
