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 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

About reverb

In recent years, technologies in the field of creating spatio-temporal effects have improved significantly, and we can talk about significant progress in this area. We owe this progress to scientific research in the field of acoustics and psychoacoustics, the development of new methods for synthesizing sound space and new reverberation algorithms.

Reverb (from the Latin word re-verberatus, “re-strike”) is the process of continuing sounding after the end of a sound pulse or oscillation, due to reflections of sound waves from surfaces. Therefore, reverberation takes place only in enclosed spaces, although under special conditions some of its types can also occur in half-open space (for example, in a stadium, city square, narrow mountain gorge, etc.). We Continue reading

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 up, and the song is pouring?

Ah, if what was recorded would sound the same as in his own head. In practice, this is far from the case. In some cases, the result is poor. It was noticed that even good vocalists, putting on studio headphones, turn into current black grouses, who can neither hear themselves nor the phonograms (the sound engineer must ensure that the vocalist can hear himself in the headphones!). Simply put, a recorded track is a marriage. The vocal part is sung out of tune. There are overstated or understated notes, and not so much timbre. And with a rhythm like that? Well, in general, it would be necessary to re-sing. Sometimes Continue reading
