Flanger

What is a flanging effect?   The flanging effect is as an audio process which combines two audio signals. The second signal is slightly delayed and therefore the combined signal produces a “swirling“ effect.   The history of the flanging effect The...

Grain Delay

Grain Delay Origins   Grain delay effect draws its roots from granular synthesis. It all started in 1946 when a physicist called Dennis Gabor published his work about applying quantum physics methods to the sound signal. With this work, he came up with the system...

Analog Delay

Back in the day   Before the days of more advanced audio technology, music employing a delayed echo had to be recorded in a naturally reverberant space. This was often an inconvenience for musicians and audio engineers. The popularity of an easy-to-implement...

Tape Delay

The History of Tape Delay   The term “echo“ was first mentioned in 1950 when electronic devices came into the recording studios. Back then, producers tried to recreate the acoustic properties of different sound spaces. These devices were referred to as “echo“...

Spring Reverb

Spring Reverb Device   The reverb effect essentially represents a collection of delayed sound repetitions. Bell Labs company invented and patented the original spring reverb device. The reason for its creation was because they wanted to simulate the delays which...

Room Reverb

Room vs Hall   Room reverb, as the name suggests, is closely related to a Hall reverb. They are both designed to simulate the natural sound of acoustic spaces. The main difference between them is that rooms are smaller spaces, which means that sounds travel much...
