May 17, 2024

In the world of audio production and analysis, Melda Production Analyzer (MAnalyzer) has earned a reputation for being a versatile and powerful tool. Its applications range from studio recording to live sound engineering, making it a go-to solution for audio professionals. One essential function is the ability to display pink noise curves, providing a visual representation of the balance between audio frequencies. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of using pink noise in audio analysis and provide a step-by-step guide on how to display a pink noise curve on Melda Production Analyzer.

Why use pink noise?

Pink noise is an essential tool for audio analysis and mixing, especially when used in conjunction with a frequency analyzer like MAnalyzer. This type of noise has equal energy per octave, meaning that each octave band contains an equal amount of power. Pink noise helps to create a balanced, natural sounding mix and allows for accurate analysis of frequency response.

Step-by-Step Guide on Displaying Pink Noise Curve on MAnalyzer:

Step 1: Download and install Melda Production Analyzer
To start, download the Melda Production Analyzer from the Melda Production website, and install the plugin in your preferred digital audio workstation (DAW).

Step 2: Open MAnalyzer
Open your DAW and insert MAnalyzer onto a track or master bus. This will depend on the specific application and whether you want to analyze individual tracks or the overall mix.

Step 3: Set the Analyzer settings
In the MAnalyzer window, click on the 'Settings' button in the top right corner to access the settings menu. Here you can choose to configure various display options, including response and decay times, peak hold settings, and windowing functions.

Step 4: Display the pink noise curve
To display the pink noise curve, click on the 'Options' button in the top left corner of the MAnalyzer window. In the drop-down menu, select 'Show Pink Noise Curve.'

The pink noise curve will now be visible as a diagonal line across the frequency spectrum, providing a visual representation of equal energy per octave.

Step 5: Adjust the curve display
In the 'Settings' menu, you can adjust the opacity and color of the pink noise curve to suit your taste and make it more visible or easily distinguishable from other elements in your analysis.

Step 6: Analyze your audio
With the pink noise curve displayed, you can now use MAnalyzer to analyze and fine-tune your audio frequencies. Ensure that your mix or individual elements fall within the desired range, making adjustments as necessary to balance your audio.

In conclusion, displaying the pink noise curve in Melda Production Analyzer provides valuable information for creating well-balanced audio frequencies. Whether fine-tuning individual track elements or honing your overall mix, following this simple step-by-step guide will help to bring clarity and depth to your audio outputs.
