Revitalizing MIDI Drums
Many may rightly claim that the great advantage of sampled, electronic drums is that they don’t force you to use ‘realistic’ rhythmic patterns or drum sounds. Most dance music, for…

Audio and MIDI
As you probably already know, when working with music, two main types of sound representation are used - these are Audio and MIDI. Audio (lat. Audio “hear”) is a general…

Vocal marriage correction
Professionalism comes over the years, but I want to sing well now. And now the vocalist (this is at best) is already at the microphone, the red recording lamp lights…

simplest successor

Digital delay

Any studio should have a delay. Once he was the simplest successor to a tape reverb (tape recorder, the tape on which is connected in a ring). Then, modulation controllers appeared in it, with the help of which it became possible to create various effects – from echo and duplication to chorus, flanger, artificial double track, vibrato and phase shift.

The input signal passes through the “gain” control (usually there is also a measuring system for fine level control). It is required to precisely set the signal level so that there is no noise and distortion. After this, the signal is separated, part of it goes directly to the output controller “mix”, where it is combined with the delayed signal.

At the input of the delay line is an analog-to-digital converter. Here, the signal is converted into a sequence of Continue reading

Why do you need compression
Of all the processes used in the production of modern music, signal compression is perhaps the most difficult to perceive. This is primarily due to the fact that often the…

About digital effects
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…

Arrangement
There are several interpretations of the word "arrangement". In the Soviet methodology, it meant transferring finished music to another performing staff, for example, from a piano to a four-voice choir,…

Sound experiments
Electronic music owes its birth precisely to experiments with sound. Experiments with sound, or rather with sound vibrations, were essentially closer to science than to music. But it was precisely…
