I run a streaming, pop-music station as a hobby. I'm trying to present a feed that is reminiscent of U.S. broadcast FM so that the songs "feel" familiar, while avoiding a completely lifeless result.
I expect that most listeners are using inexpensive equipment, such as earbuds on a cell phone, or PC speakers. I use several methods to audition the stream including a laptop, a nice stereo, the stereo in my truck (via bluetooth), and decent Audio Technica headphones. I don't have any signal analysis tools.
I'm curious if you have any suggestions for adjustments that I could try to improve the sound.
Thanks for auditioning the stream -
Oops, didn't see this one. Apologies for later reply.
Checked out the stream and have to say, it sounds absolutely beautiful. Everything sounds so balanced and each band just falls right into place on every song creating a lovely consistent sound. I can tell you've definitely put a lot of effort into this preset and the result is awesome!
Was also really nice of you to give a shout out to Stereo Tool on the front page. :^)
I think I'll definitely be listening to this most of tonight.
Fantastic job, Dave!
