    What's with the processing on Hot 97?

    Listening the last few days in NYC, very slow AGC release and attack. It's up and down like a yoyo all day long!

    And when they blow that horn, it takes almost 7 seconds to fully recover sometimes!

    Anyone know what they are on? Sounded Orban to me

    Just a guess really...it didn't seem to have the Omnia HF sizzle

    Omnia 11s and 9s don't have that traditional "sizzle" (read: high freq distortion/clipping) that the previous versions of Omnia processing did. Starting with the Omnia One, high frequencies started sounding musical.
    You can, of course, force feed your 11 and make it cough up blood on the high frequencies...just like a 6. Many people like that sound and it has been very successful, especially in NYC.

    Hot 97 is still Omnia.11. Maybe with the new G-Force software running?

    Perhaps they've also added Voltair to the chain.

    I think they have had a Voltair for as long as Voltaires have existed.

    More likely someone adjusted the settings on the audio chain, including the Omnia, any pre-processing, and even mike processing.

    Orbans and Omnias both have nearly infinite possibilities for settings.
