Logic Speaker and Dolby Surround Sound Quality
A logic speaker is a type of loudspeaker that utilizes dynamic cone technology. This design hasn’t undergone significant advancements since Siemens first patented it in 1874.
A voice coil is made up of a coil of wire on a magnet that moves back and forth to form the diaphragm. When an electrical signal is applied to this voice coil, its magnetic field forces it to move in response, amplifying sound waves and reproducing them accurately.
What is a Logic Speaker?
A logic speaker is an advanced piece of audio equipment designed to deliver superior sound at an affordable price point. They often appear in commercial settings such as concerts, presentations and conferences but can also be purchased for home use as a stand-alone unit. Generally speaking, these speakers produce frequencies sufficient to satisfy most audiophile requirements.
The great thing about them is that they can be installed in virtually any room. From bedrooms to family rooms or offices, anyone who wants access to music on demand will love these speakers. Plus, at less cost than other alternatives, they promise superior sound quality for years into the future.
Speakers are capable of producing some impressive wattage. This translates to powerful sound that’s typically delivered to listeners through an amplifier that sends signal directly to one or more speakers inside a cabinet. Speakers typically consist of electric bass, acoustic cone and tweeter for maximum impact.
Audio jacks come in a range of qualities and strengths, so you should carefully consider which ones best suit your application. It is essential that the jack be of the highest possible quality so that you receive the highest sound quality possible.
To determine which one is ideal for you, test out a demo and listen to its audio samples. Hopefully, you will be sufficiently impressed to select one that meets your requirements.
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is the surround sound codec that revolutionized home theater in the 1980s. It enabled stereo soundtracks recorded on VHS tape or laser disc to be played back in surround sound – an astounding breakthrough since at that time most media for home use were only stereo recordings.
In 1987, Dolby Pro Logic’s initial release – DPL I – marked a significant advancement over its predecessor Dolby Surround, which used matrix technology to decode stereo sound into surround sound. With DPL I, audio professionals could finally enjoy true surround sound for the first time.
Dolby Pro Logic was an alternative to Dolby Digital, as it did not compress the data and thus had some limitations. For example, the rear channels (known as surround speakers) only covered 100 to 7,000 Hz while the center channel was band-limited at 7 kHz – thus mufflering treble frequencies and making high notes harder to hear.
After some time, Dolby Pro Logic II was released to address these issues and provide more discrete surround channels. Additionally, it added a Low Frequency Effects channel which added some depth to the surround mix.
Since then, Dolby has made significant advancements and released other surround sound codecs such as Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Dolby Atmos that continue to revolutionize home cinema experiences.
Dolby Atmos technology enables music to be mixed in spatial audio – pan tracks 360 degrees around you and place them vertically so they sound immersive and three-dimensional. This type of audio can be thrilling and even hypnotic.
With the recent release of Logic Pro 10.7, Apple has made creating and exporting Dolby Atmos mixes easier than ever. The software will now render your spatial audio tracks in Dolby Atmos format required for distribution on supported streaming services such as Apple Music, Tidal and Amazon Music.
As with any new surround audio format, it’s wise to test your mixes on a Dolby Atmos-equipped speaker system before making them public. Apple now offers three renderers for this purpose: In-Built, In-Built Plus and the newly released In-Built Pro.
Introduced in the 1980s, Dolby Surround remains popular today in many home theater systems. This audio format was designed to offer a more immersive viewing experience when watching films and television programs. It utilizes four channels of sound encoded into each audio track for enhanced clarity.
Most TV shows and VHS recordings are encoded with this technology, which is also found on DVDs and many older home movies. Dolby Surround decoders are typically found within the surround processor of most receivers and AV preamps.
This type of surround audio utilizes matrix technology and is ideal for those who want to enjoy the surround sound effect but don’t have an entire 5.1 speaker setup. Additionally, those with wide screen displays or who wish to distribute dialogue more evenly across their screen may find this type of surround audio useful as well.
Pro Logic decoders transform Dolby Surround soundtracks from matrix-encoded Dolby Surround into the original 4.0 surround sound signal (left, center and right) as well as a mono rear channel. It is possible to add a subwoofer channel in a Pro Logic system; however this is not actually its own channel since it derives from low frequency information in the front speakers.
Though no longer widely used in most systems, Dolby Pro Logic is still included in some audio equipment and can be an effective way to add surround sound to existing stereo content. It comes in various formats that can be inserted into the master channel strip before or after a Dolby Atmos plug-in for optimal effect.
Dolby Surround sound mixing in Logic Pro is made easier with several tools that make the job even simpler. Stereo 3D object panners, which enable you to adjust audio in each direction independently, and stereo upmixers are just two examples.
In addition to stereo upmixers, Logic also features a Dolby Atmos upmixer as part of its Dolby Atmos bundle of technologies. This upmixer can process native stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 content.
The latest version of Logic Pro offers an impressive suite of new features and enhancements, but the standout news is Dolby Atmos and Spatial Audio support. Now you can create an immersive experience by mixing in a format compatible with most modern speaker systems – making using this technology easier and cheaper than ever before!
Traditional surround formats necessitate the purchase and installation of separate hardware, while with Logic Pro you can utilize a single plugin to render all major elements in your surround mix – including object, surround and subwoofer channels – simultaneously. This is made possible through an included gizmo as well as other key components included with every version of Logic Pro.
To avoid any potential downtime or crashes, it’s best to back up your Logic projects before updating. Doing this ensures you can easily roll back to a previous version in case something goes awry. Luckily, this process takes only a few clicks on an external drive or in the cloud with services like Dropbox and Google Drive – or other popular storage options.
