AYAIC Ceilings of Sound


“Ceilings Of Sound” is part of the next generation of equalization tools available only from AYAIC.

It is the ultimate EQing guide taking the guess-work out of the equalization process and allowing you to fully utilize your favorite software or hardware equalizers. Equalizing just became fun!

When it comes to mixing music professionals and beginners alike often find the equalization process to be one of their greatest challenges. How much low end does the bass require? How bright or smooth should the hihat sound? How phat should the guitars be? How do I get the vocals to stand out? Ultimately because of variances in amplifiers, drums, microphones, FX, mic placement, etc. there can never be a “one method fits all” approach. However there is one thing that every instrument, percussion, guitar and vocal track has in common … they are all just noise. Just as the spectrum of light is the ceiling of perfect color … white, pink and brown noise are the ceilings of perfect sound.

Everything we hear flows along the spectrum analyzer lines of one of these noise ceilings.
We can tilt them by either negative or positive values and they remain extremely musical. This is what the “AYAIC Ceilings Of Sound” is all about. It does not EQ your music in any way rather it allows you to use your favorite hardware or software equalizer to it’s greatest potential. By mixing mutiple instances of any of the the noise ceilings with any multiple of +/-1.5 tilt you can create the ceiling you need to equalize your source material perfectly. In other words it allows you to “EQ within the lines”. If your midrange passes a ceiling use your pultec equalizer to bring it below the line. If there is a frequency spike rising above a ceiling use a narrow Q setting EQ to drop it below the line. If your high end is below the “line” bring it up. It’s that simple.
