Why is it all the same noise music?
This article will focus not so much on noise, as you might think by reading the headline, but on the music performed by the musicians and the musicians themselves. The…

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

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

The nature of the sound of tube amplifiers

Exciter (from the English Exciter), also called harmonic exciter (harmonic exciter), psychoacoustic processor (psychoacoustic processor), enhancer (enhancer) and acoustic exciter (aural exciter) – this is a processing device used for the harmonious synthesis of high-frequency signals, using thin harmonic distortion.

This harmonic synthesis consists in creating higher harmonics based on lower signal frequencies. Typically, noise is present in different frequency bands in unequal amounts, and harmonics obtained from a clean frequency band will be clearer. Less commonly, exciters (enhancers) are used to synthesize low-frequency harmonics in order to simulate deep bass.

Initially, exciters were made on the basis of tube amplifiers, but now they exist in the form of digital processors.

Exciters and enhancers are used to change the tonal qualities of sound. But, unlike the equalizer, which Continue reading
