hey thank you.

I don't see vocals on there though?

Vocals have a pretty wide range, with fundamentals at fairly low frequencies but overtones extending quite a bit. Of course, spoken word versus singing makes a difference as well.

Awesome and useful, Sven! I think I need to blow this up, print it, and hang it over my mixer. ;)

I think the first chart is not interesting me. The maker seems to think that most instruments "sit" about 2 octaves above middle C, that makes no sense to me. The same as the terms "muddiness" and such: probably that's accurate if you use wrong or extremely small speakers that nowadays are sold as studio monitoring. On a transistor radio, headphones, or a tube radio, a decent HiFi or media system or a PA system, that's all going to be quite different. Just like recording no sub 30 Herz frequencies for a kick drum, pretty ridiculous, and I don't know why the 20kHz label is an octave about 16,xxx kHz, that's wrong.

thank you very much MIDI2XS!!!!!

your last link is fascinating (all of them are).

gotta read more about the singer's formant.

also, its got me seriously wondering about what it means with respect to monitoring one's self with headphones while singing. very very interesting stuff here gang.
