Sample text

If the bass is fed into the compressor’s main inputs, every time the kick occurs the bass will drop in volume, making space for the kick thereby preventing any conflicts. Compression can also be used on individual sounds to change the tonal content of a sound. For example, by using heavy compression (a low threshold and high ratio) on an isolated snare drum, the snare’s attack avoids compression but the decay is squashed which brings it up to the attack’s gain level. This technique is often employed to create the snare ‘thwack’ typical of trance, techno and house music styles.

The difference is that a VCO produces an audible frequency (within the 20 Hz–20 kHz range) while an LFO produces a signal with a relatively low frequency that is inaudible to the human ear (in the range 1–10 Hz). The waveforms an LFO can utilize depend entirely upon the synthesizer in question, but they commonly employ sine, saw, triangle, square, and sample and hold waveforms. The sample and hold waveform is usually constructed with a randomly generated noise waveform that momentarily freezes every few samples before beginning again.

Similar to the knee setting on a compressor, a hard attack activates the limiter as soon as a peak is close to overshooting. On the other hand, a soft attack has a smoother curve with a 10 or 20 ms timing. This reduces the likelihood that any artefacts are introduced into the processed audio by jumping in on the audio too quickly. These software look-ahead limiters are sometimes referred to as ultramaximizers. As discussed, the types of signals that require limiting are commonly those with an initial sharp transient peak.
