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…

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 determined by the range of frequencies perceived by the human ear. The lower limit of this range is sound vibrations with a frequency of 20 Hz. (oscillations per second), and the upper – 20 KHz. (thousand oscillations per second).

The graphic equalizer, depending on its accuracy, determined by the width of one band, may contain a different number of ranges in which the values ​​of the amplitude-frequency characteristics are set. For example, with a bandwidth of one octave, the equalizer will contain 10 bands, with a bandwidth of 1/2 octaves – 15 bands, and Continue reading

The secrets of low-budget music creation technology

Many musicians and sound engineers underestimate the capabilities of modern computers.
Many musicians and sound engineers underestimate the capabilities of modern computers, music applications, and inexpensive sound cards. At the mention of such a technique, they scornfully purs their lips and pronounce a word in which all their contempt for the world of mere mortals is concentrated: “multimedia” … However, acquaintance with Western periodical music publications suggests that the entire civilized world has long turned to face low-budget technologies: articles are written on this topic, the advantages and disadvantages of various programs are discussed, and serious people like Eric Persing (owner of Spectrasonics and creator of the entire library of sounds for Rola synthesizers nd) put the first experiments on the use of software synthesizers in serious budget projects. And the prices of programs and plug-ins make you think. For example, a set of Waves Native Gold Bundle plug-ins costs as much as $ Continue reading

About the vocals

Vocalist (from the Latin words vox – “voice” and vocalis – “sounding”) – a musical profession, a role in a musical collective, involves the performance of various vocal parts.

Now, the term vocalist almost coincides with the term singer, but in modern pop music it is interpreted somewhat more broadly, in particular, implying the possibility of recitation, recitative, etc.
