Linear Phase Eq versus Minimum Phase Eq

A detailed tutorial on the differences between Linear and Minimum Phase Topologies, how to use them and when to use them.


Linear phase and minimum phase rear their heads almost on a daily basis and the subject still confuses many producers. Let me simplify it and show you how and when to use either topology.

Topics covered in this video are:

  •  The differences between Linear and Minimum Phase Topologies
  • Zero Latency and Minimum Phase
  • Understanding Phase and Shifting/Response
  • Measuring Frequency Response
  • Measuring Harmonic Distortion
  • Cut versus Boost
  • Slopes and Q (bandwidth)
  • Using Analysers and Measuring
  • Peaking and Shelves
