On Wednesday, December 18, Prism Sound will present a webinar on the fundamentals of FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analysis. There will be two sessions, 9 AM and 1 PM Eastern time (2 PM and 6 PM GMT).
If this term is new to you, FFT is a computer-based method of displaying the frequency content of a waveform. With today’s distortion levels numerically approaching zero in nearly any spec sheet you read, it’s often useful to understand what constitutes that small amount of distortion. An FFT analysis can show this. FFT analysis is also useful to look for dominant or lacking frequencies in a mix as a guide to making it sound better.
Prism makes some pretty expensive test gear for FFT analysis, but there are a number of DAW programs and plug-ins that allow you to at least get a look at a spectrum using the tools you probably already have. If you’re interested in learning what FFT is and how it might be useful to you, check out this webinar. Prism’s on-line lecture/demos are consistently well done and are at a level that can be understood by most anyone with a basic knowledge of recording technology.
