Sound Perception and Compression
Traditional lossless compression methods (Huffman, LZW, etc.) are usually poorly applied to compressing audio information (for the same reasons as when compressing visual information). Some lossy compression methods are listed…

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

About free creativity

I, almost completely reconciled. Resigned to the fact that the commercial sound won completely and irrevocably. That free creativity, if it has not died at all, dies, and dies more successfully than ever: in the rays of glory, reflected by millions of brilliant blanks. Resigned to the fact that a high level of execution is impossible without the numerous studios and millions of fees received by managers. Resigned to the fact that everything in the world has already been played, and we can only listen to the insanity of the secondary product.

I, it was decided to throw my collection on the dustiest shelf and put a bold stamp on non-profit music: a waste of time. But now, the evening sun oozes gentle rays through my window, making my way through the gray haze of clouds and revealing the blue of the spring sky. I put the already forgotten musicdisk “Ambrosia” of the 98th year of release, and I understand that I can not give up. Should not. Because I have to keep the main thing in music – meaning, feelings, experiences.

The problem with modern music is that it is created for form, not content. Man is a fairly simple creature in the sense that it is easy to influence. First of all, to his tastes, preferences. Especially in the music. Two factors play a role Continue reading
