Information display


#1

I am running a MKII with the latest firmware. No matter which filter I select, the display shows “Auto,” “Filter 1,” “Filter 2,” etc. I happened to see an image of a MKII on the internet, and noticed a picture that showed the NAME of the filter on the display - in that case, I believe it was “MP Apod.”

Most images I find where you can read the display shows “Auto,” which is what mine shows when in Auto filter mode. Realizing the image I saw could have been a “marketing” image, is the display SUPPOSED to show the actual abbreviated name of the filter, or just “Filter 1,” “Filter 2,” Filter 3," etc. From what I’ve READ, it seems like the display should just show the filter number.

Any different experience? Thanks for the input.

The filter choices
1.
AUTO
. This will automatically choose filter MP Soft for 44.1kHz and LP Soft for any
higher sample rates. These are the choices we believe work best.
2.
Filter 1 MP APOD
. Minimum phase Apodising filter. Low pre-ringing, minimal group
delay, minimized post ringing, good phase vs. frequency, sharper filter cutoff.
3.
Filter 2 MP SOFT.
Minimum phase soft knee filter. Low pre-ringing, minimal group delay,
minimized post ringing, good phase vs. frequency, soft cutoff.
4.
Filter 3 LP APOD
. Linear phase Apodising filter. No group delay, perfect phase vs.
frequency, minimal post ringing, some pre-ringing, sharper filter cutoff.
5.
Filter 4 LP SOFT
. Linear phase soft knee filter. No group delay, perfect phase vs.
frequency, minimal post ringing, some pre-ringing, softer filter cutoff.
6.
Filter 5 MP 1/2B
. Minimum phase recursive Half Band symmetrical filter. Minimized pre
and post ringing, good group delay, good phase vs. frequency response, sharp cutoff.

Thanks for the reply, but I know what each filter is per the manual, but what I was wondering is if the NAME of the filter (ie. MP Apod) should be showing on the display when Filter 1 is chosen, or if the display should just show “Filter 1” as mine does.

Your display is correct; it will simply read “Filter 1.”

It would be nice if it was more explicit.

OK, thanks Elk!
