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

The mysteries of a beautiful voice

Today I would like to touch upon a question related to the timbre, beauty and harmony of our voice. It is often said that a woman loves with her ears, and a man loves with her eyes.

Music and vocals: learning to sing

Christine Linklater Voice Release

The exercises of this system are aimed at releasing the voice from tension, at developing and strengthening it, primarily as a human tool and as an actor’s tool. It is, rather, the release of a natural voice, rather than the development of voice technology. (But I think that it will be very useful for the vocalists to get some relaxation, release from the clamps.)

The goal of the Linklater method is to force the intellect to form a voice in direct contact with emotional impulses, without being an obstacle. Since the sounding voice is the result of physical processes, the muscles of the body must be free of tension in order to become susceptible to the impulses of the brain that generate speech. The natural voice is Continue reading
