for a Special Composer
people like you need special effects. Isn’t that especially
of my recording experience comes from one family of recording
software. My current choice, Cubase SX3, has compatible hard
drives, sound samples and sound cards. Most of this article is based
on my experience within these parameters. Other software products
are configured slightly differently, although there are similarities
between most major music recording programs.
Two main effects that are contained within most
recording programs include reverb
gives music a “less dry” feel. Adding
reverb is like adding echo to a music track. Filters
the other hand, act as removers of unwanted frequencies. In the
final product, filters help to produce a cleaner sound.
both of these effects you’ll usually have a few different
options. For example, in a reverb effect an option may include a
concert hall reverb sound or a more subtle type of echo effect.
Much depends on what mood your music is trying to convey to your
like reverb are actually created by adding a special effects track
in your music project (the same way that you add an audio or midi
track). The select effect from this channel is then guided to whichever
track you want to be effected by an internal mixer.
or equalization is another powerful tool that studio
editors use. Depending on how you control your equalization settings,
you can enhance or cut desired, and undesired frequencies from particular
sound tracks. Different controls allow you to change low, mid or
high frequencies in terms of the following parameters:
controls the amount of frequency to be cut. Frequency controls
the middle frequency of the particular range that can either be
raised or cut. Q controls the parameters of the width of
I don’t blame you. There are other effects like delay and
distortion… I can go on but there’s no point. The bottom
line here is that all of these components are explained in accompanying
software manuals. Once you’ve read about the effect and played
with it in a tutorial, things will click for you. If you run into
problems that a manual can’t seem to solve, phone your reliable
technical support team at the store where you bought your computer.
If they can’t help you, they’ll usually refer you to
someone who can.
