The Peak Def Resonance Method

Working with the previous “Rocket Thruster” method I realized I could get more efficiency and effectiveness out of the filters provided by the AUM Audio Mixer DAW itself. The AUM Audio Mixer comes with various filters, peak limiters, and audio gain effects built in. I was remembering that the peak definition filter of the “apeFilter” app was the most efficient and I could add multiple band pass filters. The peak definition filter also enabled ME to create a low resonant growl/rocket thruster sound with a lot of vibration while attenuating frequencies.

Working with the previous “Rocket Thruster” method I realized I could get more efficiency and effectiveness out of the filters provided by the AUM Audio Mixer DAW itself. The AUM Audio Mixer comes with various filters, peak limiters, and audio gain effects built in. I was remembering that the peak definition filter of the “apeFilter” app was the most efficient and I could add multiple band pass filters. The peak definition filter also enabled ME to create a low resonant growl/rocket thruster sound with a lot of vibration while attenuating frequencies.

Knowing that AUM has built in filters and effects it was simpler than having to keep messing with the various plug-ins. I just had to do some STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) style math to find the median and average of the two ramp down oscillated saw tooth waves generated by “The Oscillator”. I needed resonance and as usual as MY mind becomes more clear I can think better and see more options that I did not think about before.

The parametric EQ allows stability and equalization or Q, the limiter allows for attack and decay, and the low and high shelf filters allow for gain of the frequencies that are attenuated below the set threshold. This combination can be set up with three stages of two to three low pass filters creating three sections of a peak definition filter. After that I use the “Noise Gate” to match and gently open and close the downward expansion gate cutting or compressing unwanted signals. The Noise Gate is the only plug-in that has the release function which is different than the decay. The decay of each limiter preserves the initial ramp down sawtooth oscillated waveforms so they can continue to work in an LFO manner throughout the process. The idea is to create an Ultra Low Frequency effect with beginning high frequencies with contradicting gain and negative resonance while gently massaging, reducing, and filtering cognitive dissonance/excess BEM from the brain.

I added a waveform analyzer so YOU could see exactly what is being filtered and attenuated. This is NOT a requirement and this specific type of scope analyzer only analyzes and traces the frequencies. This app, “AnalyserFZZ”, is made by “4 pockets Audio“.

I also decided to purchase a different type of earbud than I was using before. I noticed that MY ear canals moved a lot and the regular type of earbuds and Apple Earpods would not stay put. I decided to purchase earbuds made by “JLab Audio” with silicone stabilizers on each side. Not only does the JBud Pro Signature earbuds have stabilizers but they are also engineered at a decent angle for optimum sound, in MY opinion.

Below is an instructional video on how to set the Peak Def Resonance Method up with AUM Audio Mixer. Below the video is a list of each filter and its settings.

METHOD A

  •  DECAY 60 ms
  •  PRE-GAIN +15 dB

3. LOW PASS FILTER A (X 3)

  •  FREQUENCY 19950.7 Hz
  •  RESONANCE -20 dB

4. HIGH-SHELF FILTER (A X 3)

  • FREQUENCY 19950.7
  • GAIN +15 dB

5. PARAMETRIC EQ B(X 3)

  •  FREQUENCY 10325.7
  •  Q 20
  •  GAIN +15dB

6. LIMITER B (X 3)

  •  ATTACK 0.005 ms
  •  DECAY 60 ms
  •  PRE-GAIN +15 dB

7. LOW PASS FILTER B (X 3)

  • FREQUENCY 10325.7
  • RESONANCE -20 dB

8. HIGH-SHELF FILTER B (X 3)

  • FREQUENCY 10325.7 Hz
  • GAIN +15 dB

9. PARAMETRIC EQ C (X 3)

  • FREQUENCY 5162.7 Hz
  • Q 20
  • GAIN +15 dB

10. LIMITER C (X 3)

  •  ATTACK 0.005 ms
  • DECAY 60 ms
  • PRE-GAIN +15 dB

11. LOW PASS FILTER C (X 3)

  • FREQUENCY 5162.7 Hz
  • RESONANCE -20 dB

12. LOW-SHELF FILTER C (X 3)

  •  FREQUENCY 1000 Hz
  • GAIN +15 dB

13. PARAMETRIC EQ D (X 3)

  •  FREQUENCY 1000 Hz
  • Q 20
  • GAIN +15 dB

14. LIMITER D (X 3)

  •  ATTACK 0.005 ms
  • DECAY 60 ms
  • PRE-GAIN +15 dB

15. LOW PASS FILTER D (X 3)

  •  FREQUENCY 1000 Hz
  • RESONANCE -20 dB

16. LOW-SHELF FILTER D (X 3)

  •  FREQUENCY 1000 Hz
  • GAIN +15 dB

17. GAIN -|>- (X 5)

18. NOISE GATE

  •  THRESHOLD -50
  • ATTACK TIME 1 ms
  • RELEASE TIME 500 ms
  • RATIO – MAX
  • SC MIN FREQ – OFF
  • SC MAX FREQ – 1000 Hz
  • * Keep in mind that, if the sound shuts off, YOU will need to adjust the threshold on the gate until that opens again. Remember to save YOUR work.
  • 19. THE OSCILLATOR

    • A RMP DWN WAVE
  • – PITCH 19999.7 Hz
  • – AMPLITUDE -15 dB
  • – LOWPASS FILTER 19950.7 Hz
    • B RMP DWN WAVE
  • – PITCH 19900.7 Hz
  • – AMPLITUDE-15 dB
  • – LOWPASS FILTER 19950.7 Hz
    • NOISE GENERATOR
  • – STEREO WIDTH 0.50
  • – AMPLITUDE 6 dB
  • – LOWPASS FILTER 19950.7 Hz
  • 20. The stereo settings are for the earbuds or headphones so everything is continuously and dynamically balanced no matter what.
