During this e-book, the technical clarification of the character of analog sound construction is through the tale of its beginning and its next improvement by way of quite a few designers, brands and performers. the person parts of analog sound production are then tested intimately, with step-by-step examples of sound construction suggestions. Then the trendy imitative analog tools are tested, back with certain directions for programming and utilizing them, and the ebook is done with appendices directory the foremost tool strains to be had, tricks on values and buying, different assets of knowledge, and a discography of available recordings which provide strong examples of analog sound synthesis. The CD which accompanies the e-book offers many examples of analog sound production fundamentals in addition to extra complex thoughts, and of the talents of the person tools linked to classical and with imitative analog sound synthesis. * an entire heritage of analog sound in a single paintings* Interviews with Legends and builders of of analog synthesizers* Audio CD of demo sounds and tuitional items to demonstrate the tactics mentioned within the booklet

Sample text

For a time the vocoder was not even very popular, but can now be implemented as a digital effect and is widely seen in rack-mount effects units, synth modules and keyboards, and even small pedal-sized effects, though without the accessibility and programmability of the original analog vocoder designs. The vocoder (voice coder) derives from work in the telecommunications field to compress the human voice for more efficient transmission over a telephone line. Bell Labs, among other companies, was working on vocoder technology in the 1950s, and this involved splitting the voice sound into separate frequency bands (just as found on the graphic equalizer of a hi-fi system) and using the output from each band to drive an amplifier applied to just one frequency band of an alternative input signal.

The Technosaurus Selector triple resonator module. implementing this, as well as analog methods), the pitch-shifted signal will be more or less faithful to the original, and more or less distorted as the amount of shifting increases. M O R P H I N G F I LT E R The Technosaurus Selector frequency shifter module. 30 The morphing filter is again an unusual feature of the Technosaurus Selector system. There is one cut-off frequency control that can be controlled manually or using any one of three scalable voltage control inputs for control from LFOs, envelopes or other sources, and one resonance control with its own scalable voltage control input.

This led Bob Moog, from his very earliest designs, to establish as standard that a change in voltage of one volt from the keyboard circuit would cause a change in oscillator pitch of one octave, so it can be generally assumed that a fiveoctave keyboard creates a voltage five volts higher from its highest key than from its lowest key (but see the note below regarding other alternative arrangements). On a very few synthesizers it is possible to readjust this scale so that an octave on the keyboard does not correspond to an octave change from the oscillators – or even (as on the ARP 2600) to reverse the scale, so that playing higher up the keyboard produces a lower note.
