This is not HiFi….

I created this specifically for FM broadcast of pop, dance and rock music.
By chance, I think it works pretty well on Jazz too.
I have tried to provide a reasonable amount of density and loudness for comfortable background listening whilst maintaining a fairly good spectral balance cut to cut without sounding too crushed.
To me the processing density is somewhere between BBCR1 and R2’s prime time output, not that I was trying to emulate the sound of the Optimod 8700i’s which I am not a great fan of.
I didn’t bother with auto EQ as I feel that the MB’s seem to do a pretty good good job holding the spectral balance for the music genres it was developed for.
I have tried to add a little LF punch giving some warmth making the sound more palatable on crappy portable radios whilst trying to keep the IMD to a minimum and hopefully not sounding too muddy on a decent HiFi.
Please let me know what you think.
Any suggestions for improvements gratefully received.

Not bad! 8-)

it is loud... although some here would disagree
Doesn't hit the main clipper much but is still dense

the only thing I see bad is the bass clipper is over active

Hi Dale

Many thanks for your feedback.

I agree, some may argue that this is not as loud as it could be but I didn't want to push the clipper any more as I feel this eats into any precious dynamics you have remaining.

In terms of bass clipping I entirely agree with what you say, maybe I should back that off a little.

Thanks again

Jim.
