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.
