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.

Singer – the one who sings, is engaged in singing. Artist of vocal music: songs, romances, arias, choirs, singles, etc. A musician who performs music on a musical instrument, which is his own voice. The singer is the most common type of vocalist.

In classical music and in opera, the voice is interpreted exclusively as a musical instrument. Composers write music for this instrument, taking into account the skill and characteristics of the singer’s voice.

The leader-vocalist is a member of the musical group, performing mainly the main vocal parts. Continue reading

Electric guitar

The device of an electric guitar on the example of Fender Stratocaster:
1-Vulture. 2-body. 3-head neck. 4-upper nut. 5-Porozhek fret. 6-Kolka. 7-bridge (with tremolo). 8-pickup humbucker. 9-Pickup single. 10-Lever. 11-pickup switch. 12-tone control 13-volume control. 14-Socket for connecting the cord. 15-Hole for adjusting the anchor. 16-belt attachment. 17-fret marker.

The fretboard of the electric guitar (1) is practically no different from the acoustics and consists of two parts: the fretboard itself and the overlay fastened with glue. Recall that the fingerboard is its upper part, on which the frets are located. On the head of the neck (3) there are also pegs (6), and inside the neck there is an anchor, the task of which is still the same – to prevent the strings from bending the neck. The bar can be glued to the deck, or it can be attached with screws (this is one of the differences from acoustics). Continue reading
