Vocal marriage correction

Professionalism comes over the years, but I want to sing well now.

And now the vocalist (this is at best) is already at the microphone, the red recording lamp lights up, and the song is pouring?

Ah, if what was recorded would sound the same as in his own head. In practice, this is far from the case. In some cases, the result is poor. It was noticed that even good vocalists, putting on studio headphones, turn into current black grouses, who can neither hear themselves nor the phonograms (the sound engineer must ensure that the vocalist can hear himself in the headphones!). Simply put, a recorded track is a marriage. The vocal part is sung out of tune. There are overstated or understated notes, and not so much timbre. And with a rhythm like that? Well, in general, it would be necessary to re-sing. Sometimes it turns out to re-write, and sometimes those present in the studio understand that the track that was Continue reading

Equalizer

Equalizer (English equalize – “equalize”, the general abbreviation is “EQ”), a timbre block is a device or computer program that allows you to increase or decrease the volume of individual zones of the frequency range, equalize the amplitude-frequency characteristic of the sound signal, that is, adjust it (signal) amplitude selectively, depending on frequency.

Born in the 30s, the equalizer is the oldest and most commonly used sound processing by sound engineers. Today, the market lacks a variety of instruments for timbre correction – from a simple bass-treble corrector of the 50s to a sophisticated multi-band equalizer with perfect parameters. At its core, the equalizer is a few electronic filters that allow you to change the amplitude-frequency response of a sound device. Over the past half century, the equalizer circuitry has improved tremendously, trying to satisfy the increased demands of the audio industry. Continue reading

Beginner musicians about creating a band

I won’t open anything new for the dinosaurs of the musical world, but for beginners, I think this article will greatly help and coordinate their actions. All information is based on personal experience.

Where to start? Clearly decide for yourself whether you need this migraine. Believe me, you will have to do a lot! First, find serious people who are suitable for you according to their views on music. Secondly, buy tools and equipment, but everyone will not have enough money. Thirdly, to find a permanent place for rehearsals and establish a schedule of musicians about creating a band, while one part of the staff is studying on the first shift, the other on the second, and the third generally works round the clock. Fourth, look for “your note”, your style, your sound, think up so many thoughtful lyrics, crazy reefs, speedy, soulful solos, drum parts on the verge of human capabilities, in order to somehow differ from millions of other groups. Fifth, performing somewhere in the sessions at the beginning with trembling hands, legs and voices. And finally, organize the recording of albums. Continue reading
