Delay Effect Explained

  What is ‘Delay’?   When someone shouts on top of a hill, the person hears himself back after sometime with a reduced volume. This phenomenon is known as ‘echo’. The same phenomenon when recreated artificially in the studio is known as ‘Delay’.   Going by the book, A...

Multiband Compressor

  A compressor is an audio tool that helps to alter the dynamic range of a signal by reducing the volume of louder parts or by amplifying quitter parts. It is without a doubt one of the most important tools in modern audio world. This blog will discuss a very special...

Convolution Reverb

What is a Convolution reverb?   Convolution Reverb digitally simulates the reverberation characteristics of an acoustic space using a piece of software. For instance, it can recreate a realistic simulation of any acoustic space like cathedrals, symphony halls,...

Tube Distortion

Tube or Valve amplifiers   Tube, also known as valve amplifiers, are audio processing units that are widely praised for their characteristic sound associated with vacuum tube components embedded in them. Before the era of commercially introduced transistors in...

Transient Shaper

Transient Shaper, in some cases called transient designer or modulator, is a type of audio processor whose core is designed quite similarly to the compressor. It could be best described as a level-independent dynamic processor. It is similar to compressor and expander...

Noise Gate

Introduction   An audio effect called noise gate can be regarded as an expander with a slope of -∞. With this feature, the effect results in total muting of the signal below the chosen threshold. As already deduced from its name, the basic application of noise...
