    Sometimes i go into the other room...

    Ok so continuing with the wierd thread titles....
    Sometimes i go into the other room to listen to the song

    And recently i noticed that the song seems to sound a little speed up (if you know what i mean...) when i'm in the other room....am i crazy i mean really?!?
    When i come close to the monitors again the song sounds the normal speed.
    It's like the song speeds up or slows down depending on haw far or close to the speekers i am....
    Am i developing some kind of super ear/mastering sense )

    Have you noticed something similar?

    this has to be an auditory illusion.
    because your not hearing certain frequencies i would guess it sounds like the tempo is changing..
    thats my guess...

    How fast are you moving when you go into the other room?


    I wonder...

    If Logic ran into the other room at precisely 340.29 meters per second...

    Would the music stop completely? Would he hear just one long continuous note?

    k I read the first line "how fast etc..." and started loling picturing logic moving pretty quick into his other room

    then I read the other lines

    lmao


    conscoiusness interprets frequencies in interesting ways logic

    maybe you are changing something when you move into the other room?

    I move at normal speed : ) )

    Maby what is happening is related to the doppler effect.
    And the walls are forcing the sound to reflect the sound faster like when you force water to move to a tight hosepipe and the pressure/speed of water increases...i dont know if this is how it works...

    Maby i just have a time vortex there and if i move enough distance i will end up in 1985 : )))

    I wonder if it could be a form of confirmation bias?

    Confirmation bias works like this:

    The badger's ears tell him that the high hats could do with more 'sizzle'...

    tB reaches for the high eq knob and dials in a smidge more hf.

    that's better thinks tB's brain.

    Later, tB thinks the hats could do with more sizzle and he dials in more hf. Then more.

    Each time, confirmation bias means that tB can hear the change until...

    tB realises that he is adjusting channel 17 and the hats are on channel 18.


    Confirmation bias. Hearing something because you think you must be hearing it. It happens.

    Well it could be some kind of "confirmation bias"
    I must admint i experienced this while mixing ...i was tweaking a filter and later noticed it was not "on" : ) )

    But still i think i have a chance to go back in time maby if i experiment with this long enough....will have the chance to start it all over again....

    While we are on the subject of auditory illusions...


    Have you guys ever come across the volume related pitch change?


    This is where listening to a track quietly and then loudly seems to raise or lower the pitch slightly. For example: Urban myth suggests that recording engineers turn up (or down) the volume in a singer's cans when they are pitching too low (or high).


    I wouldn't know. I'd probably turn the wrong knob and adjust the volume in cans that no one was wearing.... and then confirmation bias would tell me that it had worked. :grin:
