An article someone here posted said that all users get shadow profiles made, which track their viewing habits and generate a stream of videos the person would probably like based on machine learning. This most definitely also means they store device id-s, location info and any other tracking info they get their hands on. Users can eventually register with an emaila and phone number (doesn't the app already know it though?).

So, you're out of lick - it's already as if you have a profile.

AMD. Anything before ryzen doesn't have the PSP. FX CPUs support all the ISA extensions you need, AVX2 isn't a requirement for most software. I remember reading about redhat making AVX a requirement for fedora, which they haven't done yet, but doesn't matter since those instructions are supported by all AMD chips made after 2011. Really FX CPUs are the most practical way to an ME/PSP-free x86-64 computer, i don't know if many AM3+ boards are supported by coreboot though. The FM2+ APUs are pretty decent if you want a lower power machine too. The alternative is either PPC, which is older and slower, with dwindling software support, or POWER9, which is pretty fast but expensive. Blackbird and talos workstations have fully free firmware and modern features like PCIE4 though, so it's up to you whether that's worth it or not. I'd definitely buy one if i had the funds, but my FX shitbox is already enough for what i do.

I hear you and I'm not upgrading for those games but the responsiveness of high refresh rate is very noticeable once you switch back to normal. If 4k is that much better than 1440p than maybe it's the right choice. Higher resolution on everything vs. higher responsiveness on everything is a hard choice for me.
>>76127272
>>76127399
It looks objectively inferior to 1440p at normal range. I've upgraded everything else multiple times except my monitor and 1080p looks and shows its age once you see 1440p.
>>
Depends on what you need it for, FPS gaming or gaming overall would be 1440p. Computer work - 4k.

>"upgrading" to 60hz anything in 2020
oh noh noh noh. the bare minimum is 120hz 4k OLED or 144hz IPS 27" then if you are going that route and want big boi size. a large tv if you want maximum screenrealestate without scaling. the monitor if you want to use some scaling or have insane eyes and want everything miniscule or some scaling and have crazy high ppi.

240hz tn or wait for the 360hz one if you are an esports phag

1440p 144hz IPS if you want more screen real estate similar to the first point but dont wanna use scaling at 27" or have a TV on your desk

You can literally buy something, tell eBay that you received a brick, and they will refund your money, no questions asked, because fuck sellers.

I have seen people demand a refund while refusing to return the item, and eBay actually gave them the money without any issue.

Was into ebay like 10-15 years ago. Now you are hard pressed to find a deal.

The used video games market was ruined by ebay speculators. "Oh this game is popular but sold 200 million copies!? Its worth $100 in shitty condition!" ???

Seriously, pick any newish mid to high tier phone and go try to buy a BROKEN one. One with a shattered screen or water logged. Ya know the "as-is" items.

Barely a few dollars less then buying a brand new one. I'm not just talking about the buy-it-now stuff either. Watch a few auctions they always sell for near new price. I do not fucking understand?

I'd like to route my voice through a number of plugins and interfaces and then feed it to Microsoft Teams and other Voice Communication software.

Are there existing solutions for that?

Hey guys, I'm starting to get into voice-acting, and it's honestly something that I've been wanting to do for a long, long time, so now that I have the money and the time, I wanted to really dive into it.

Problem is, I am very inept when it comes to audio technology. I'm doing my best to try and learn about the different kinds of mics, and how to hook them all up, i.e. XLR vs. USB, audio interfaces, etc., and it's SORT OF making sense, but really, there's just a kind of overload of information online.

Can you guys just help me decide on a good microphone for voice-acting, even entry-level? I have a Blue Snowball iCE right now, but I'd really like something more professional, even if I have to spend a couple hundred.

Thoughts? Recommendations? Two that've caught my attention so far are the Shure Beta 58a and the MXL 990, but I don't want to make a shitty purchase and regret it.

No. If you want decent audio on virtual meetings, you damn well better use headphones / earphones.
You might manage speakers if you have a dynamic mic super close to your mouth with very aggressive noise gate settings. Otherwise, you will simply earrape everyone in the voice chat.

8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>76128686
I wouldn't bother. It'll pull the rough tonal balance in more, you'll obviously still have a few odd peaks but these will be much less noticeable than the bigger areas. Also wider Q changes are more gentle on the phase shift introduced by the EQ, where multiple tight Q bands turn the phase response into a shitshow. This is also a good reason not to go for more than 4 bands, phase response is as important as EQ and almost everyone LARP'ing as an audiophile either doesn't even understand it or will just ignore it for muh flat line
>>
>>76127916
>You will only achieve this on something that supports a 4+-band parametric VST EQ (ie. a PC), you won't find a music player with this functionality built in
Rockbox can do this, it's only limited by the speed of the device, there's a few music apps on Android/iOS with 10+ band PEQ's
>>76128686
>Don't I need to adjust each of their Q-values though, in order to make up for the missing bands and get closer to the untainted curve? That's where I'm assuming the real math comes in
You would need to, a computer can try to fit the curve by itself but most programs don't take into account how important are peaks vs notches
You can play around APO/PeaceGUI (or some other PEQ) until you get a curve that you're ok with, keep in mind that higher Q's usually require more processing power, you might be able to use more than 4 bands on your Rockbox'ed DAP that way, iirc I could get 6 bands with my Clip+
>>76128951
HRTF's can be approximated minimum phase functions, there's no reason to care much about phase on headphones like there is on speakers
>>
>>76128983
They're may be a select few niche things that can 'do' it but I bet much doubt the algorithms in place are comparable to a decent PC VST EQ with x86 power available to it instead of ARM or whatever is in a PMP.
Have to politely disagree about the 'no reason to care much about phase' statement, phase is ALWAYS important when dealing with audio in any domain. As I said most people don't even understand what it is and it can be make or break on whether a piece of gear sounds good or completely wonky. EQ's effect (depending on the type of EQ, IIR, FIR etc.) on phase can be minimal (keyword: minimal) but is still present in some form

>>76129234
>but I bet much doubt the algorithms in place are comparable
They're the same algorithms, there's no magic in those VST's, paramatric eq's have been well developed since the 90's
>x86 power available to it instead of ARM or whatever is in a PMP
That's the only limitation to it on most DAP's, they run on SoC's from the last decade that were never designed to run complex DSP's, however hackers where able to get shit running well enough, Rockbox can do by default 10 band PEQ but it isn't recommended since you will be pegging pretty much all the supported devices at 100% all of the time, some like OPs will struggle with few bands
You shouldn't underestimate ARM, you can convolve pretty long FIR's on pretty much any Android phone made in the last 6 years in real time, I personally use James DSP for this
>Have to politely disagree about the 'no reason to care much about phase' statement, phase is ALWAYS important when dealing with audio in any domain.

EQ's effect (depending on the type of EQ, IIR, FIR etc.) on phase can be minimal (keyword: minimal) but is still present in some form
You don't understand what minimum phase means, read up on linear phase and minimum phase
btw, it's known that minimum phase is indistinguishable from linear phase and even reversed phase in hrtf's, which applies to all headphone systems (with the exception of the weird stuff like the AKG K1000)
