#Musicproduction: HEDD releases free Lineariser plug-in - addresses monitor phase and harnesses host CPU power for phase-aligned audio #freedownload

With the HEDD Lineariser® plugin, we have created a unique solution for one of the most challenging problems in the history of loudspeaker designing: Linear Phase Response. What does it mean and why will your HEDD studio monitors sound better than ever?
Well, all loudspeakers regardless of size or construction cause phase errors. This means that not all frequencies leave the speaker at the exact same point in time. This has to do with physics: The fundamental relation between time and frequency is expressed by the so-called Fourier Transform, which explains that corrections in the frequency domain will inevitably alter the phase response – and vice versa. You can’t have both, linear frequency and phase response at the same time, at least not in an analog loudspeaker design.

#Photography: How to Use a Tilt-Shift Lens Creatively and for Perspective Control

When you hear tilt-shift lens or tilt-shift photography, there is a probability that an image looking like a miniature model crossed your mind. That is because, over the years, tilt-shift lenses have become synonymous with this style. The miniature look is interchangeably referred to as the tilt-shift effect and you can even recreate it in post-processing. These lenses though have quite a few other strengths that are worth considering.
