Steve Temme Featured on THD Podcast (Part 2) – Transient Distortion and more

In the second of a 2-part series on the THD Podcast, Steve Temme continues his discussion about why its important for engineers to be able to correlate audio measurements to audibility. He demonstrates Listen’s latest transient distortion algorithm, which offers the unique ability to listen to the recorded waveform with the stimulus removed so that just the distortion artifacts can be heard. This aids understanding of the measurement and makes it very easy to set limits.
