Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay focus to investigate the difference between analogue hardware compressors and their counterpart emulations. Since it is quite common to use dynamic emulations in both professional studios and smaller home studios, it was of high interest to investigate if emulations can provide the same sound as the analogue hardware. We will go thru the process of emulations to provide some background information on what is being examined. A blind test were conducted and a series of measurements on different stimuli to provide information about any differences. The findings indicates that there are a difference between hardware and software. Measurements showed differences in overtones and attack/release characteristics. The blind test showed that there are an audible difference in some cases.
