LISTENING
Burwen Bobcat provides 19 fixed processing selections for simple operation.  The 18 above are
in the Big Bobcat window and a universal
basic bobcat selection appears in the small Basic
Bobcat window.

1.  BURWEN BOBCAT RE works only with the Windows Media Player.

2.  When playing your disc, or music file select the sound you want,
basic, vocal,
jazz, pop, classical, or movies and compare to no bobcat.  Use the sound you like best.

3.  For additional tone adjustment, use the Windows Media Player's Graphic Equalizer
available under View, Enhancements, Graphic Equalizer.  

4.  Compare the sound to
no bobcat which is the same as bypass but 5 dB softer.  The lower
level prevents overload due to extreme low frequency boost.

5.  If you are too busy to think about selections, click Go to Basic Bobcat to go the a small
window with only one processing selection,
basic bobcat.  This selection has very little
low frequency compensation, enabling the same level as
bypass.

6.  Files previously processed by Burwen Bobcat automatically play in
bypass mode instead
of your selection.  Both your selection and
bypass are highlighted.

In Windows Explorer or My Computer Burwen Bobcat Processed files are identified by a bobcat
icon.  On computers that do not have Burwen software installed the icons will become visible if
you install the BURWEN BOBCAT IDENTIFIER utility, bobcatshell_inst.msi available free at
