What types of music did you test these for? Are they for hip/hop or pop? Classic rock?
Thanks for your time and effort
The settings were established by an analyzer and by ear. So to answer your question, BOTH.
These settings are intended for all types of music... Here is the types of music I tested... Copying and pasting from my old post:
Amy Grant, Armand Van Helden, Baby Bash, Sean Kingston, Benyamin S., Big Gemini, Bob Sinclar, Breaking Benjamin, Chic, Chingy, Colby O'Donis, D12, David Guetta, The Dazz Band, De Barge, Dire Straits, Duran Duran, Enrique Iglesias, Enur, Eric Clapton, CREAM, Evanescence, Fat Joe, Timbaland, Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine, Franky Ti-Aya, Jellybean, Johnny Budz, Kanye West, Keisha Cole, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park, Londonbeat, Mariah Carey, Milk & Honey, Milky, Missy Elliot, New Order, Orgy, Nickleback, Nickfurrie, POD, Pat Matheny Group, Paul Van Dyk, Pet Shop Boys, Paul Oakenfold, Pink Floyd, Pitbull, Lil John, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rihanna, Roc Project, Safri Duo, Santana, Shapeshifters, Tech 9, Weezer, Yves Larock, 30 Seconds To Mars, 2pac, 50 Cent, The Game....
The above is just a fraction of the songs I listened to for these settings and see what works and doesn't.
If people find the settings undesirable.. I apologize... at that point, adjust to your own liking.. This is how the audio is supposed to sound. Flat, nuetral, minimal frequency obtrusiveness.
