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.

Equalisation



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
