Equalizers and their application
Graphic equalizer is a multi-range corrector of the amplitude-frequency characteristics of electric sound signals. The boundaries of the full range of frequencies in which the amplitude-frequency characteristic is corrected are…

Music and hypnotic state. Musical hypnosis

Hypnosis (Greek hypnos — dream) An altered state of consciousness characterized by a narrowing of its volume and presumably sharp focus on the content of the suggestion. Hypnosis occurs as a result of special effects of the hypnotist or targeted self-hypnosis. In a more general sense, hypnosis is a socio-medical concept of a complex of methods of targeted verbal-sound exposure to the human psyche through a mind braked in a certain way, leading to unconscious execution of various commands and reactions.

Hypnosis has been known to mankind for a long time, it was practiced by the priests of ancient Sumer. In Continue reading

Music effects

A compressor is a device that allows you to smooth out the dynamic range of a signal. In simpler terms: what was quiet will become louder, and what was loud will become somewhat quieter. As a result, the sound will become more dense. In addition, the compressor allows you to even out technical recording defects: for example, when recording vocals, vocalists (especially not experienced ones) shake their heads, swing the microphone back and forth, periodically bounce, kick their feet and do other funny tricks, which leads to a floating volume level. In this (and in many other situations) a compressor will help, which will smooth out the level change. Continue reading

The advent of electronic music

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 this experimental scientific work that was the beginning.

The coordinate system starts from zero. The decimal count starts with one. Two points of view that contradictory debate among themselves – when does the next century begin, 2000 or 2001? We will not find out the truth. I just want to share with you some discussions on the topic of modern electronic music, music of the late XX century, and music of this century.

Faced with people who are more or less connected with modern electric machines (synthesizers, music Continue reading
