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
The idea to write an article under that title did not arise from idleness and not by chance at all, but as an urgent need for a precise and clear definition of the extremely important in my opinion musicological term, due to the lack of which serious problems and difficulties are already beginning to arise in modern cultural discourse communicative and semantic in nature …
SO WHAT IS THIS SUCH – “SIMPO-ELECTRONIC MUSIC”?
Electronic music is music, the creation of which uses electronic musical instruments and technologies. Electronic music consists of sounds that are formed using electronic technologies and electromechanical musical instruments. Examples of electromechanical musical instruments include tellarmonium, a Hammond organ, and an electric guitar. Pure electronic sound is obtained using instruments such as theremin, synthesizer and computer. Continue reading
We all know synthesizers, which are “electronic pianos” with many special effects and functions.
The whole charm of the synthesizer lies in the fact that it can autonomously act as a musical instrument, providing good sound from almost any timbre.
There are also disadvantages, the main of which is the relatively high cost of a good synthesizer and its significant dimensions.
The MIDI keyboard is deprived of this minus. it costs less and extensibility is better …
MIDI keyboards are, in fact, simplified versions of synthesizers that do not have built-in sounds, additional functions and effects.
In this case, the functionality and implementation of special effects is assigned to a personal computer. Continue reading
