Widen Your Drum Loops With a Frequency Shifter

Widen Your Drum Loops With a Frequency Shifter

Frequency Shifter raises or lowers the frequency of an input signal using a complex amplitude modulation-like technique. Unlike the pitch shifter, it does not preserve the harmonic relationships between the various tones and harmonics in the input signal. In the next...

Amplitude Panning

Amplitude panning originates from stereophony, initially developed by Blumlein in the early 1930s. In essence, this system transforms the phase and amplitude difference of a signal recorded by stereophonic reception systems (mic stereo pairs, or the ears for that...

A/B Stereo Recording Technique

The A/B stereo recording technique is also known as “Spaced Pair”. It involves two microphones positioned anywhere from 3 to 10 feet apart, meant to capture the same sound source. The distance between them will create time-of-arrival (phase) and level...

Modeling Amplifiers for Guitar

Modeling amplifiers look like conventional guitar amplifiers but are primarily designed to emulate the sound of well-known modern and vintage amplification gear. They come in diverse speaker configurations and are able to provide a variety of sound at any...

M-S Recording Technique

The “Mid/Side”, or M-S recording technique, was first designed by EMI engineer Alan Blumlein. He invented the method in 1933 and used it for some of the first stereophonic recordings. The M-S microphone recording technique is commonly used in broadcasts,...
