Playing The Analog Type And Vintage Keyboards
Synthesizers come with fundamental components that collaborate in order to produce sound. They include:
The function of a filter is to alter a sound’s timbre by eliminating specific frequencies from the wave. A keyboard has different notes which individuals can use to play notes. Even then, there is always a different in the sound some instruments produce despite users incorporating the same pitch to play them. This is caused by the sound’s timbre and it can spoil a sound’s harmonics.
Sounds consist of numerous frequencies whose combination is responsible for producing a powerful pitch. This explains why the C chord played on a guitar produce the same sound as a C note. Basically, these are harmonics which define a specific sound’s timbre or character. See commonly used synthesizers.
An oscillator produces a waveform and proceeds to change its pitch which is also defined as the frequency. This is achieved when voltage forms electrons which produce a waveform.
Many of the available synthesizers allow users to choose between different wave types. This is because different patterns produce varying sounds.
The function of modulators is to build effects. However, some of them may cause damage to the sonic properties.
For instance, the LFO (Low frequency oscillator) forms low frequency signals so much so that the ear can hardly hear. For this reason, it is used for modulating specific synth parts such as a wah pedal to create effects, as compared to developing sound.
It creates different effects depending on the point of application.
For instance, it creates a vibrato by wiggling the pitch on application to the oscillator, a wobble dub step bass when applied to the filter, and a tremolo when applied to the amplitude.
Envelope Generator And Amplifier
The function of the amplifier is to regulate the volume of the signal and modifies its size. It’s also capable of changing the signal’s amplitude over time by regulating the speed at which it achieves the peak of its volume and how long it is able to sustain it. Such can be compared with the sound produced by the violin string and the staccato sound produced by hitting the piano key.
