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

About 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.

Music therapy

I have a rare profession for our country – a music therapist. I was convinced that the creators of great melodies are powerful healers who can help a person no worse than any famous psychic.

With special delight over the past 10 years, I have been doing music therapy, conducting thousands of sessions for adults and children. Music, according to L. Van Beethoven, carving fire from the human soul, helped me relieve tragic conditions, stresses, attitudes toward suicide, despair. I was able to achieve a fracture for a number of diseases, “remove” speech disorders and deviations in behavior, and eliminate the symptoms of neurological problems.

I practice not only as a doctor, but also as a musician, able to play the desired music on the piano, right up to N. Paganini’s violin concerts. I saw how the music exerted a spiritual and bodily healing effect. Continue reading
