This is a video version of my Audio Myths workshop from the October 2009 AES show in New York City. Questions and discussions about this video are welcome at my Audio Expert forum:
For copyright and other reasons, Part 1 of this video includes only a portion of the live event that also featured James Johnston, Poppy Crum, and Jason Bradley. Parts 2 and 3 present a more focused recreation of my presentation, including many topics we didn't have time for at the live show.
In this video you will hear what phase shift sounds like, compare high- and low-end converters, learn about proper test methods, understand why hearing is not as reliable as test gear, and much more. So set aside an hour when you won't be disturbed, and enjoy.
The original high quality example Wave files mentioned in Part 3 can be downloaded from my web site, along with other files related to this video including the complete narration script: http://www.ethanwiner.com/aes/
The video mentions ABX software for doing your own blind tests. This freeware program is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux: http://www.lacinato.com/cm/software/othersoft/abx
Also, my book The Audio Expert, inspired in part by this video and containing much more information, is available on my web site: http://www.ethanwiner.com/book.htm
