Hands up who likes analogue synthesisers?! Of course you do; there’s dozen of models out there and the best thing is, they’re all different. That might seem strange at first glance because when you examine them, most models appear to be basically the same. My Roland SH101 has one oscillator, one filter, one envelope generator and plays only one note at a time. Put that next to my Yamaha CS10, which is nearly exactly the same in terms of sound making facilities, and everyone except a guitarist would tell you they’re different, as different as a grand piano and a Yamaha DX7 (and the SH101 sounds far better in my opinion). And as every synth sounds different, each is unique.

Open Access unlocked Peter Cobbin & Kirsty WhalleyPhaser (effect)A phaser is an electronic sound processor used to filter a signal by creating a series of peaks and troughs in the frequency spectrum. The position of the peaks and troughs is typically modulated so that they vary over time, creating a sweeping effect. For this purpose, phasers usually include a low-frequency oscillator. Spectrogram of an 8-stage phaser modulated by a sine LFO applied to white noise. The electronic phasing effect is created by splitting an audio signal into two paths.

Shows like Numb3rs and CSI have popularized the idea of experts solving problems using data analysis. Now the “knowledge engine” Wolfram Alpha wants to help nonexperts try their hand at it. Wolfram Alpha looks like a Web search engine but can answer queries such as “how old is President Obama?” or “heart disease risk 50-year-old male.”
