When the subject of instrumentation begins at a music school, students begin to get confused – how is the arrangement different from instrumentation. Another interpretation is variation, i.e. approximately the same changes as when composing variations: changes in tempo, rhythm, size, style. At the same time, significant changes are often made to the author’s melody.

The arrangement can go so far that it completely replaces the original music with another one that is not Continue reading

Vocoders: practice and assortment

Vocoder (English voice coder – voice encoder) – a speech synthesis device based on an arbitrary signal with a rich spectrum. Initially, vocoders were developed in order to save the frequency resources of the radio link of a communication system for transmitting voice messages. Savings are achieved due to the fact that instead of the actual speech signal only the values ​​of its certain parameters are transmitted, which on the receiving side control the speech synthesizer. The speech synthesizer is based on three elements: a tone generator for forming vowels, a noise generator for forming consonants, and a system of formant filters to recreate the individual characteristics of the voice. After all the transformations, the human voice becomes like the voice of a robot, which is quite tolerable for communications and interesting for the music industry.

Vocoder as an unusual effect was adopted by electronic musicians and subsequently became a full- Continue reading

Someone wants to “run” the program at rehearsals and leave a record, for example, to familiarize invited musicians. They also write demos that can serve as rough material for future studio sessions, or are designed to create a general impression of the material for other people. Continue reading
