Thread: Adding one more spherical to Macondo.
           Reply: The 6-ch Milq: Fundamentals vs. Injection Channels.  
Playing recently with setting up the new 6-ch Milq I again got an interesting feeling about my Fundamentals Channel. The in Injection Channel partially overrides some benefit of the Fundamentals Channel and I have a partial feeling that it would be possible to make the Injection Channel to substitute the Fundamentals Channel. However, since the new Super Milq has ability of very precise and with very high quality to dial-in one and another channels it is very interesting to observe the different between Fundamentals Channel and Injection Channel.

The Injection set acridness of tonal colors; it is like vinegar that added to food. The Fundamentals Channel sets the density of the food itself. It is like Fundamentals Channel distinct meet from fish but the Injection Channel set a distinction between Caspian Osetr and Atlantic Herring. The Injection Channel set the “saturation of quality or tone” vs. the Fundamentals Channel more like set the amount of second harmonics and the tone weight. That are different and excessive too much application of each of them is not desirable and it is highly unlikely that it would be possible to fit in one channel the duty of the both Channels. it might be possible if I custom built an enclosure for Fundamentals Channel, very precisely circulating the output at upperbass and lover midrange for a given room and using a driver in there with a predicable among of injection “acridness”. Unfortunately I have no such skills, so to me the use of independent Channel with ability to reset operational parameters for each channels sounds as a very reasonable solution.

This post is referring to two threads in my site:

6 Channel Version of Super Melquiades

 and

How to USE “Resonating Oops” in loudspeakers

Below in the picture is very cool thing. Right under the 50mV meter there is an actually adjusts the output of Fundamentals Channel.

Surely I do not adjust the output of Fundamentals Channel frequently. In the 3-ch Milq I did it with resistors, setting the balance between MF and Fundamental Channel. Now it is a pure Fundamentals Channel adjustment. It feels different and I believe anybody really, for sake of education, needs to listen a playback with an ability of moderate acoustic output of "second harmonics" at the given frequencies. The volume of the Fundamental Channel should be set precisely for a given room and then the adjustment is not really necessary. Still, without this adjustment a playback from my point of view is losing a very powerful expressive tool.
