An enhancer, an exciter and a tube amplifier – what is common?

Exciter (from the English Exciter), also called harmonic exciter (harmonic exciter), psychoacoustic processor (psychoacoustic processor), enhancer (enhancer) and acoustic exciter (aural exciter) – a processing device used for the harmonious synthesis of high-frequency signals using thin harmonic distortion.

This harmonic synthesis is to create higher harmonics based on lower signal frequencies. Typically, noise is not present in different frequency bands in equal amounts, and harmonics obtained from a clean frequency band will be clearer. Less commonly, exciters (enhancers) are used to synthesize low-frequency harmonics in order to simulate deep bass.

Sound processed by an exciter becomes more “pure”, “transparent”, “voluminous”, “warmer” than the original, and also spatially more localized. All these properties are enclosed in quotation marks, since they are perceived by a person subjectively. Also, subjectively, this is similar to adding high frequencies, although an increase in level is barely measurable. Continue reading

How not to let you overwhelm and not allow growth in fear, panic?

Everyone knows that experience comes with the practice of performances, and many people resort to tricks, tricks, and proven tricks over the years that save them at a difficult moment. Undoubtedly, a certain amount of artistry and dexterity is necessary to look at the scene at ease and relaxed, but this is such a business, and if you feel that it is too difficult – just do not handle it. For those who are confident in success, there are no barriers. Continue reading
