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