Good sound

Sounds that energize the brain
“Some sounds work just as well as a couple of cups of coffee,” says Alfred Tomatis, a distinguished French hearing expert. This means that we can use music as a…

A look from inside. About VST Tools

This article reveals the idea of ​​creating VST synthesizers, the understanding of which is lacking for musicians, especially those who are constantly looking for more and more new synthesizers and those who like to argue which synthesizer is better and what. Due to the fact that many issues have a psychological basis, the process of choosing a “favorite” synthesizer will also have to be considered from the point of view of classical psychology.

Beginner’s Look

To begin with, I propose to answer the question of which synthesizer is most attractive to you and why, also Continue reading

Physics of sound

This text is optional. Especially for those people who are not going to seriously work with sound, but want only in their free time to play the synthesizer and make some music for their pleasure. In principle, you can quite easily use a computer for musical purposes without knowing the basics of acoustics, electrical engineering and other applied disciplines.

But if you are a professional musician or an “advanced” amateur, then everything that is written below, you just need to know. Without this, you will not be able to get a conscious result, and in the future to creatively use programs avoiding template solutions. And this requires at least an understanding of the basic laws of acoustics. Therefore, gather your thoughts and start reading – we tried to make your task as easy as possible and, as much as possible, simplified the story.

By the way, many Western musicians do not particularly bother to study equipment or, especially, some suspicious fundamentals of physics, and rely entirely on technicians, sound engineers and producers. When they come to our country, they are genuinely surprised to see how, when preparing a concert, the guitarist is busy with tuning many Continue reading

CPU offload in FL Studio

I think that many of those who use external plug-ins (Vst, DXi) when creating their project, which uses a large number of them, have encountered the problem of processor loading.
This article will partly help you deal with this problem.

I think that many of those who use external plug-ins (Vst, DXi) when creating their project, which uses a large number of them, have encountered the problem of processor loading. Also loading occurs if you have a large number of effects in the mixer. You can, of course, turn the “buffer length” knob (Options => Audio settings), however, if it is at maximum, there will be some delay, because the sound does not have time to be generated, i.e. if you try to play a melody using the midi keyboard or using the “record” function then … in short, a bummer about you, the sound will not come out at the moment you Continue reading

Good sound and all you need

This article will help you choose the equipment that best suits your tasks. Here we will try to talk not so much about HOW these or those devices are arranged, but about WHAT they do with sound.
Mic preamp
The output voltage of microphones is usually unity, at best tens of millivolts. This signal is very weak, and its quality when transmitting over long cables is greatly deteriorated, not to mention the practical impossibility of connecting one microphone to several consoles and getting good sound at the same time.
Now imagine a situation: you need to voice a concert at a stadium or in a sports palace (with a multi- Continue reading

What is pop music

Estrada is a type of stage art that implies both a separate genre and a synthesis of genres: singing, dance, original performance, circus art, illusions.

Pop music is a form of entertaining musical art, addressed to the widest audience.

This type of music was most developed in the XX century. It usually includes dance music, various songs, works for pop-symphony orchestras and vocal and instrumental ensembles.

Often, pop music is identified with the existing concept of “light music”, that is, easy to perceive, generally available. In historical terms, classical music that is simple in content and has gained universal popularity can Continue reading
