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 satisfy the increased demands of the audio industry.
Understanding the essence of timbre correction and its effect on the sound signal
Let us dwell on the explanation of two areas of application of the equalizer, namely the voice and its Continue reading
Most compressors and gates are based on analog circuits. Most of the effects that apply time change in any form are based on digital electronics: delay, reverbs, pitch shifters, multi-effects processors, etc. Before considering the operation of any particular processor, you need to have an idea of how the digital system works (this will help to understand a lot of what is written in the technical documentation of such devices).
The digital processor receives an analog signal (for example, music). First, this signal must be converted to digital.
An analog signal is a change in voltage in proportion to changes in the state of the signal source and Continue reading
