Why did everyone get this wrong? 2

Well, this was a video I didn't think I'd have to film! After 153,000 views, more than 1000 comments and dozens of email and DMs, I decided to share the result of the audio test in last weeks video.
The comments section was almost a perfect split between people choosing A or B, with a minority sharing that they couldn't tell which one was high-passed. While I had everyone focussed on A or B, the reality is that the high pass filter was turned on and off 4 times in each example. There was no switch at the cross between A and B although many people claimed to hear a big difference right at the transition point. This has been incredibly valuable for me and has made me entirely rethink how I present audio examples, before and after tests and plugin reviews on the channel. It has also shown me how deeply ingrained some audio myths are, through repetition over many years, and that this content is worth continuing. I'm learning more with each video too. Let me know what topics you want me to cover next time! 0:00 – Intro
0:45 – Audio test
1:05 – The comments section
1:45 – The answer
3:05 – Warning for FL Studio users
3:50 – Thanks for watching FL Studio Users: The reason I would advise against using the "20/30Hz + 18kHz Cut" preset is because it has been brought to my attention that many users simply apply this when mastering and are not actually listening to the changes in the audio. Objectively, a 30Hz filter is far too high for mastering 99% of audio. The mix was Cruise Control by Jason Jass. 📱 Instagram: @michael.inthemix 📱 All my links: https://linktr.ee/inthemixlinks 🌍 My Website / Contact / Hire me: https://michaelwynneaudio.com 🎧 My Sound Banks / Preset Packs: https://inthemix.store 🎧 My Plugin (Reviver) Free Trial:
