Frequencies to Remember

Classically, the sound spectrum is divided into three parts: low, medium and high frequencies. The frequency limits, although not everyone agrees with this, can be defined as follows: low from 10 Hz to 200 Hz, medium from 200 Hz to 5 kHz, and from 5 kHz – high. For a more precise definition, let’s divide these three parts into smaller ones and consider them separately.

1) Low bass (from 10 Hz to 80 Hz) – these are the lowest notes from which the room resonates, and the wires begin to hum.

Rock and Roll History
We owe the term “rock and roll” to Alan Freed, an American DJ. He worked at the Cleveland radio station and very often broadcast black music because he noticed how white youth gravitated towards it. The name “rock and roll” came from the popular song “We’ll rock, we’ll roll”. This happened in 1952. Continue reading
