radib wrote:warm means somehow soft, dirty, dusty but also wet and thick, lifeful and dark. but also a matter of frequency. on the xtremes long bass for instance is warm, a short hi hat sounds cold.

you see its an easy question since you loved a girl/boy, not just try to fuck her/him like a dumb kid. same with music. never start doing before haven´t a clear picture to that question, otherwise its such a shame.

Radib/contra,
C'mon girls, stop swinging your handbags and get involved.

Maybe it would help if there were more actual examples of 'warm' we could all listen too... subject to the limitations of digital reproduction and compression, headphone/speaker/monitor choice, room characteristics etc...

Post more samples?

Contra nailed it. Specifically "pleasing" distortion. The problem is "pleasing" is subjective. The analog crowd will tell you thats natural (even order) harmonics.

yes fuck finally!

its not that its analog that we like it, its the even number harmonics, so if digital could produce that and you give it about a generation or so to absorb into pretty much everyrecording afterwards then people will spout the same about the new even numbered harmonic digital recording.

problem is digital is still odd numbered harmonics.
