About star collectives …

Many musicians who have never worked in the accompaniment of domestic pop stars naively believe that this is an undoubted success for the musician, contributing to further professional and career growth. Speaking at the stadium, in the spotlight, surrounded by television cameras is considered more prestigious than playing in a restaurant or a small club. Yes, it’s worth adding to this, many people think that the musicians of the “star” bands receive some kind of sky-high salary.

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. If your sound reproducing equipment does not reproduce these frequencies, you should feel the loss of saturation and depth of sound. Naturally, when recording and mixing, the loss of these frequencies will cause the same effect.

2) Upper basses (from 80 Hz to 200 Hz) are the top notes of bass instruments and the lowest notes of Continue reading
