By default, logarithmic frequency

Post by Piotr Grochowski » Tue Sep 12, 2017 6:27 pm

Linear frequency scale may seem powerful, but it has more drawbacks. The high frequency content is pretty much redundant, so you had to throw content above 8000Hz to the recycle bin by default. In other hand, 27.5 to 20000 logarithmic scale is just amazing and perfect. It may seem blocky for frequency, but it's your fault for using "256 - default" and not "4096" as default (trust me, when I was young, it confused me when 500 to 1000Hz didn't give me meaningful results until I resampled to 8000Hz)
