Re: Low/high-pass phase shift

OK, I see, thank you. I used the equalizer for that purpose and that did it. But now I miss the analogue warmth.. ;)

Btw. maybe it should be mentioned somewhere in the wiki that those Nyquist filters are not suitable for editing sections of a track

Low/high-pass phase shift

The high and low pass filters in Audacity are not linear phase. Is this itentional (e.g. is there any situation where this could be desirable)? I wanted to apply a high pass to a short selection of a track to get rid of some rumbling noise but this introduced really nasty artifacts at the borders of...

Normalization of stereo tracks

I just noticed that when normalizing a stereo track Audacity does seem to normalize both stereo channels independently. I'm not sure whether this a bug or a "feature"? If it is the latter I would seriously recommend to change that quirky behaviour. It's contrary to what any other standard audio edit...

Odd statement in Audacity manual

Hi there, when reading through the Audacity manual I stumbled over the following statement which seems quite irritating to me: the dynamic range on an audio CD is theoretically about 90 dB, but realistically signals that are -24 dB or more in volume are greatly reduced in quality http://audacityteam...
