Sound Processing Effects

About how and in which cases it is correct and need to use them will be discussed further.
The effects considered in the article are divided into the following categories:

Temporal transformations: delay, echo, reverb, various delays using modulation (phaser, frequency modulation, chorus, flanger).
Frequency Conversion: Various types of equalizers.
Amplitude transformations: compressor (limiter, maximizer), expander, amplitude modulation (ripper).
Other conversions: vocoder.

Temporary conversion
Delay and Echo

Delay (Delay) – an effect that adds to the original signal of its copy with a time delay (more than 0.5 Continue reading

The principle of work with the equalizer and its application

When working with the equalizer, it is very important to understand that amplification of a frequency band leads to an increase in the overall level of the audio signal, and excessive amplification of the bands can often lead to distortion of the audio signal. In this regard, the weakening of “unnecessary” frequencies often gives a better result than the amplification of the “necessary”. Therefore, the equalizer should be used very carefully and not used if there is no obvious need for it.

Equalizers have a wide range of applications. Their main purpose is to obtain an adequate (linear) sounding of the source material, the frequency response of which may be distorted due to deficiencies in speaker systems, inter-unit processing devices, room parameters, etc. Continue reading

What is an equalizer?

Equalizer (English equalize – “equalize”, the general abbreviation is “EQ”), a timbre block is a device or computer program that allows you to increase or decrease the volume of individual zones of the frequency range, equalize the amplitude-frequency characteristic of the sound signal, that is, adjust it (signal) amplitude selectively, depending on frequency.

Born in the 30s, the equalizer is the oldest and most commonly used sound processing by sound engineers. Today, the market has a wide variety of instruments for timbre correction – from a simple low-frequency corrector of the 50s to a sophisticated multi-band equalizer with perfect parameters. At its core, the equalizer is a few electronic filters that allow you to change the amplitude-frequency response of a sound device. Over the past half century, the equalizer circuitry has improved tremendously, trying to Continue reading
