Old MSO Tutorial
Here you'll find the original MSO tutorial. It is included here for completeness. Care should be taken when getting information from this tutorial, as the information it contains is obsolete in several ways. These include:
- The original tutorial was written before sub-only configurations were added to MSO, and only subs+mains configutations existed. Nowadays, sub-only configurations are by far the most often used.
- The old tutorial was based on the original beta tester's usage of the Geddes multi-sub method, which is not recommended.
- Usage of the Geddes multi-sub method requires that a low-pass filter, implemented within the DSP device, be used for each sub. Conventional AVR bass management not only eliminates this need, but makes it an error to use them. Despite this, the mention of the low-pass filters in connection with the Geddes method occasionally caused people using conventional bass management to become confused about whether they needed to add low-pass filters to their subs or not.
- The two-step process of using plot-only measurement groups in the process of optimizing the response of only the MLP is now obsolete. The recent Minimize seat-to-seat variations optimization option on the Method property page of the Optimization Options property sheet simultaneously optimizes MLP flatness and seat-to-seat response variation without the need for the two-step process. This gives better results with less effort. This technique is illustrated in the new tutorial.
- The Measurement Import Wizard and Configuration Wizard introduced in version 1.1.0 now replace the manual creation of configurations in the vast majority of cases, making the task faster and less prone to error than the manual technique.
