Wav Comparison

CD loudness comparison chart by Bob Katz. Edward R. Tufte would give this high marks for effective visual communication, plus it's funny. Sorry it's fuzzed out (drx, don't kill me)--the letters looked gimpy when I attempted an odd-number scale-up so Ph*t*sh*p had to be used.

hoosier little whozits

off topic, but. this song has been pre-branded as a chevy ad and only now is it coming out on his new album. its still in heavy rotation on "this old house" and alot of other places to the point i mute the tv when it comes on. why would anyone want to pay for it now!!! sorry for the rant - back to you.

Yeah, but in 10 years people will say "Oh yeah, that was that commercial," and in 20 years, they'll say "Yeah, this is, 'Our Country' and they'll just know the song." Or so the author hopes.

"Are we really in the business of making square waves?"

Turning down the volume is recommended before clicking that link.


I guess that answers my question about where "lol sine wave" came from.

I like a lot of those ytmnds as single panels, no sound ("lol square wave" would not be the same, of course).

This reminds me of Matador's initial press release for Guitar Wolf's "Jet Generation" a few years back. They claimed that it somehow exceeded the theoretical volume limits for a cd, and that it was thusly "the loudest cd in history"

If you do an internet search for "guitar wolf" "loudest cd", you should come up with a link to the original bio. I'm not smart enough to confirm or deny their claims.
