    How to take a measure.

    Hi. Wanna ask, how i can take a measure of for example uad 33609? How I can take a look what this comp does to the wave form. What it adds , what takes away. I want to check some of the after gear modulated plugins to know exacly what they do ti the wave form. Спасибо.

    If you have NI's Reactor 6, you can use its tools to see all kinds of visual representations of a waveform.

    Gibson SG, Hamer Duotone, Brian Moore i213, Taylor 710 BCE
    Mesa Recto Pre + 20/20, 68 Bandmaster

    There are lots of videos on the net as to how to input an audio file into Reaktor 6. Here is the NI resource page where you can download tools such as spectrograms.

    This is my analyzer of preference:

    The NuGen Audio Visualizer:
    NuGen Audio Link

    My guess is that you could take a measure of a song, create two versions: 1) no processing 2) with 33609 or whatever plugin you'd wish to use.

    Set them up on two separate tracks aligned perfectly (just slide them to the far left of your DAW's timeline), flip the phase on one of them (you can do this with the GAIN plugin in Logic Pro X, or with the Trim tool in Pro Tools, not sure of the other DAWS), put the visualizer plugin (or whichever metering plugin you'd prefer) on the Stereo Buss, and measure the differences in the two files. That would be the "difference" that the 33609 etc. creates.

    The only problem with this method is that the Q Clone only measures an EQ difference - it does not measure any sort of harmonic or phase addition/subtraction, so it's not really the whole picture. (and there's a lot of harmonic information in the 33609)
