The original Wendel-1 operating manual. BLOCKS. Frequencies of Inaudible High-Frequency Sounds Differentially Affect Brain Activity: Positive and Negative Hypersonic Effects. Abstract The hypersonic effect is a phenomenon in which sounds containing significant quantities of non-stationary high-frequency components (HFCs) above the human audible range (max. 20 kHz) activate the midbrain and diencephalon and evoke various physiological, psychological and behavioral responses.

Frequencies of Inaudible High-Frequency Sounds Differentially Affect Brain Activity: Positive and Negative Hypersonic Effects

Yet important issues remain unverified, especially the relationship existing between the frequency of HFCs and the emergence of the hypersonic effect. In this study, to investigate the relationship between the hypersonic effect and HFC frequencies, we divided an HFC (above 16 kHz) of recorded gamelan music into 12 band components and applied them to subjects along with an audible component (below 16 kHz) to observe changes in the alpha2 frequency component (10–13 Hz) of spontaneous EEGs measured from centro-parieto-occipital regions (Alpha-2 EEG), which we previously reported as an index of the hypersonic effect.

But I’ve also read studies from the old Philips laboratories in the Netherlands that show orchestras average deviation from 440 Hz was measured over many concerts and was seen to differ by a few Hz, usually slightly below.

Pretty anal. Some people obviously really cared that 440 Hz was being adhered to in practice. Learning Music (Beta) Submit A Sound - Deliaphonica Game. What We Need & How To Do It!

This guide aims to give you a better understanding of the different types and uses of equalizers used in music production as well as offers some basic EQing tips to maximize your music.

Basic Guide to Understanding Audio Equalizers + EQ Tips

During the course of a project, mixing and equalization are often one of the most important processes that can ultimately make or break your tune. Proper EQing is essential to add clarity and depth to your music, balance elements in a mix, and enhance sounds. Equalization is commonly used in music production to boost or cut specific frequency ranges to create depth and space in a mix, improve or emphasize the sound of particular elements, isolate or remove specific frequencies, and fix sounds with competing frequency ranges to achieve clarity. Equalization is critical for creating a polished track and a professional sound. Gain Staging In Your DAW Software. If you don't understand gain structure, you may be undermining your recordings and mixes without even realising it.

Gain Staging In Your DAW Software

Despite the immense power and flexibility available in modern digital audio worstation software, many people still find that the mixes they craft entirely 'in the box' sound unsatisfying. Why is that? There are obviously many things that can go wrong, and Mike Senior's Mix Mistakes article in SOS September 2011 (/sos/sep11/articles/mix-mistakes.htm) did a better job than I have space for here of exploring many common pitfalls.

In this article, I'll focus on one fundamental issue that blights many tracks sent to SOS for help or advice: poor management of levels throughout the signal chain. Controlling MIDI With Your Breath - ADSR. Mastering limiters - how and why to use them. Exploring Synth Patch Creation with Omnisphere 2.

It has just received another boost into the audio production stratosphere with its extensive 2.0 update, attracting new users and fans for its sound quality and design. It’s easy to get wrapped up in exploring and playing the thousands of patches available, especially the new additions. Designing for sound by Randy Thom. © by Randy Thom 1999 The biggest myth about composing and sound designing is that they are about creating great sounds.

Designing for sound by Randy Thom

Not true, or at least not true enough. What is Sound Design? You may assume that it’s about fabricating neat sound effects. How to understand the basics of limiting. To engage a limiter's gain reduction, there will usually be a dedicated input gain control: increasing this will turn up the signal, pushing it harder into the limiter.

How to understand the basics of limiting

The output ceiling is a set dB value past which no audio can exceed: the highest peaks of a signal are pulled down once they reach this barrier. Raising a limiter's input gain will cause an obvious increase in level, and this louder signal will sound perceptively better in comparison to the unprocessed signal. You may be fooled into thinking the limited version is more impressive, despite actually reducing transient detail in a negative way.

9 ways to use drones to enhance your music. Drone is an odd word and has a number of different definitions.

9 ways to use drones to enhance your music

Setting aside its applicability to both beekeepers and warmongers, when it comes to humans it is often used disparagingly. However, its use in the musical world is far more interesting. Although most familiar to our modern ears in the form of ambient music - a term coined by Brian Eno in the late '70s - the use of drones extends much further back than this. The Indian classical tradition makes use of a tambura to create a sustained harmonic backing for other instruments, and the use of the didgeridoo in Australia is older still.

Kontakt 3 Output Config in Cubase - The Long Way. SonicScoop - Creative, Technical & Business Connections For NYC’s Music & Sound Community. When I first started mixing, I thought the only way I could improve a sound was to add something to it. I piled dozens of plugins and EQ boosts onto every track, and my mixes sounded muddy and undefined. I soon learned that I could achieve even better results by taking away things I didn’t need, rather than always adding more of what I thought I wanted. After this change in mindset, the quality of my mixes took a huge leap forward. The following mix prep technique applies this subtractive method of thinking to using an equalizer, and it is sure to bring clarity and definition to your mixes.

Untitled. In VariAudio, Cubase 5 users have a sophisticated pitch‑correction tool. John Walden Oops! This recording of someone whistling a series of short notes has been poorly detected by VariAudio probably due to a poor signal level, too many plosives (breaths at the start of each note) and not enough clear pitch information. VariAudio is one of the headline features of Cubase 5, but you really need some experience with it to get the best results.

Steinberg Cubase 7. Steinberg's DAW software has received perhaps its biggest shake-up to date, with a new mixer and some clever chord functions. Mark Wherry It's been 10 years since Steinberg introduced Cubase SX to the world, and since then the program has changed a great deal. SX2 presented the Time Warp tool and saw the return of much classic Cubase functionality, while SX3 extended warping to audio and introduced the Arranger Track, Device Panels and in-place editing. 9 ways to improve your music-making computer's performance. Today's computers are power-packed workhorses - multicore and multiprocessor workstations with enough juice for the most formidable tasks. Modern operating systems provide support for vast amounts of RAM, and new solid-state drive technology means that data bottlenecks are a rarity.

How to 'gel' a mix with master bus compression. Master bus compression - quite simply, the use of a compressor on the master or mix bus - can make a profound difference to the overall sonic quality of a mix, binding its individual components together into a cohesive, professional-sounding whole. With great power, though, comes great responsibility, and if you don't fully understand what you're doing with the controls of your compressor, you can do considerably more harm than good.

With that in mind, here's a quick guide to get you started. For much more on mastering, pick up Computer Music 212, which is on sale now. 12 essential pro mastering tips.
