I started making large color fields to project and then putting them into my video-editing software to make shifting color-field compositions. After exhausting myself trying to make something that was even remotely engaging, I realized, the pieces were extremely uninteresting. I think the reason for this might be that we do not have a cultural history of perceiving frequency ratios in light like we do in sound. Regardless of the reason, I stood at what seemed to be a dead end.

They all achieve their effect by modulating an aspect of the signal with an LFO (low frequency oscillator). The style of modulation is different depending on whether the LFO is manipulating the pitch, timing or volume of the signal.

Notes that sound good together when played at the same time are called consonant. Chords built only of consonances sound pleasant and "stable"; you can listen to one for a long time without feeling that the music needs to change to a different chord. Notes that are dissonant can sound harsh or unpleasant when played at the same time. Or they may simply feel "unstable"; if you hear a chord with a dissonance in it, you may feel that the music is pulling you towards the chord that resolves the dissonance. Obviously, what seems pleasant or unpleasant is partly a matter of opinion. This discussion only covers consonance and dissonance in Western music.

Of course, if there are problems with tuning, the notes will not sound good together, but this is not what consonance and dissonance are about. (Please note, though, that the choice of tuning system can greatly affect which intervals sound consonant and which sound dissonant! Please see Tuning Systems for more about this.)

Consonance and dissonance refer to intervals and chords. The interval between two notes is the number of half steps between them, and all intervals have a name that musicians commonly use, like major third (which is 4 half steps), perfect fifth (7 half steps), or octave. (See Interval to learn how to determine and name the interval between any two notes.)

These intervals are all considered to be somewhat unpleasant or tension-producing. In tonal music, chords containing dissonances are considered "unstable"; when we hear them, we expect them to move on to a more stable chord. Moving from a dissonance to the consonance that is expected to follow it is called resolution, or resolving the dissonance. The pattern of tension and release created by resolved dissonances is part of what makes a piece of music exciting and interesting. Music that contains no dissonances can tend to seem simplistic or boring. On the other hand, music that contains a lot of dissonances that are never resolved (for example, much of twentieth-century "classical" or "art" music) can be difficult for some people to listen to, because of the unreleased tension.

Why are some note combinations consonant and some dissonant? Preferences for certain sounds is partly cultural; that's one of the reasons why the traditional musics of various cultures can sound so different from each other. Even within the tradition of Western music, opinions about what is unpleasantly dissonant have changed a great deal over the centuries. But consonance and dissonance do also have a strong physical basis in nature.

In simplest terms, the sound waves of consonant notes "fit" together much better than the sound waves of dissonant notes. For example, if two notes are an octave apart, there will be exactly two waves of one note for every one wave of the other note. If there are two and a tenth waves or eleven twelfths of a wave of one note for every wave of another note, they don't fit together as well. For much more about the physical basis of consonance and dissonance, see Acoustics for Music Theory, Harmonic Series, and Tuning Systems.

The clear Sennheiser IE 40 PRO are in-ear monitoring headphones offering high output and broadband frequency reproduction for musicians, vocalists, and audio engineers in clubs, concert venues, and houses of worship. They feature 10mm dynamic drivers, which produce a 20 Hz to 18 kHz frequency response and a maximum SPL of 115 dB while maintaining phase coherency and low distortion.

The overtones produced from a single fundamental pitch are predictable. They are the result of a relatively straight forward mathematical function. This function calculates the overtones as the tone a double the frequency of the fundamental pitch, + 1/2 the frequency, + 1/3, +1/4, and so on.

This is the basic idea behind Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy! We expose a sample to infrared light and measure its absorbance versus the frequency. We then examine the pattern of peaks and valleys in the resulting spectrum.

There used to be rules against writing music that contained this interval. Moshell says that during the Renaissance, all music had one purpose: to be beautiful and express the majesty of God. Anything otherwise was studiously avoided. But once music was no longer shackled to the church, it was free to express all kinds of tension. The devil's interval was ideal for that.

There are in fact harmonics that appear in the series before some of our equally tempered intervals, in particular the 7th, 11th, 13th and 14th harmonics (although 14th is just twice the frequency of the 7th).

The crux of what I want to get to is expressing intervals as a decimal. We touched upon this earlier: our perfect fifth appears as the third harmonic, so dividing 3 by 2 gives us 1.5. Therefore the perfect fifth is a frequency 1.5 times the root.

Delay can be run both free-running and tempo-synced with various stereo and feedback options. Most notable however is the duck feature, which optionally only lets the echoed sound through when there is no dry input signal. This allows for a long and heavy delay while still avoiding clutter over the original sound. Clever!

Im planning for Fall 2015 and I need time for preparation , as Im working women Im not able to find free time after my office hours but now I have decided to start my preparation and give the exam, So can you please help me ,Is it ok if I take my exam in the month of december ??? or will I miss any universities with the deadlines if I take the exam in the dec??

This chapter is about how Western musical tradition treats pitch, and why. Since pitch is primarily heard (by most people) in terms of ratios offrequencies, it is natural to use a logarithmic scale to assign pitches (whichare subjective) to (objective) frequencies. But one has to pick a scale, thatis, a ratio that corresponds to one unit of interval. This ratio in the West isthe twelfth root of two, approximately equal to 1.059. That particular numberturns out to be such a good choice of interval to measure pitchesby, that it came to rule over a millennium of Western art music. Although wewon't be concerned with all the historical details, this chapter will try toexplain what's so special about the twelfth root of two as a unit of pitch.The punch line is that this particular logarithmic scale turns out tohave a surprisingly high number of sweet-sounding intervals in it. To developthis idea we first have to figure out what makes some intervals sound sweeter thanothers; this is pretty well explained by what is known as the Helmholz theoryof consonance and dissonance (section ). Then we willinvestigate the actual intervals that arise in the Western scale (section). Finally we'll consider some of the consequences of theway pitch is organized in Western music and consider some alternative ways toorganize pitches.4.1 The Helmholz Theory of Consonance and DissonanceIt's a commonplace that some intervals sound sweet and some sound sour, likethis:SOUND EXAMPLE 1: a musical fifth(usually considered sweet sounding)SOUND EXAMPLE 2: a tritone(sour by comparison).To call these sweet and sour is a rather clumsy metaphor. In musicallanguage, we refer to a sweet-sounding interval asconsonantand a sour-sounding on asdissonant--terms that can be taken to mean ``going together" and ``not going together". (Even this more neutral-sounding terminology carries animplicit value judgment that should not be accepted unquestioningly.) It turnsout that the two intervals above have a physical difference that correlates withpeople's judgment of consonance and dissonance (as they are measured bypsychoacousticians in experiments), that fits into what we know today as thetheory of consonance and dissonance.Although the theory of consonance and dissonance is usually associated withHermann von Helmholz (1821 - 1894), many of its ideas and concepts date backfurther, even to ancient Greece; and the theory was much elaborated upon (andargued with) over the century since Helmholz published his contributions. Thetheory seems to have finally been brought to a definitive form in Plomp andLevelt's very readable and persuasive 1965 paper on the subject.In the theory, we consider two complex periodic tones, that is, tones thatmay be written as a sum of sinusoids with frequencies in the ratios 1:2:3:..;in other words, tones all of whose partials are tuned to multiples of afundamental frequency. Here is what happens when the two fundamentalfrequencies are chosen, for instance, as 100 and 150 Hz:(To make the picture easy to see, all the harmonics of the 100 Hz. tone aregiven the same power, and so are all the multiples of the 150-Hz. tone; but thetheory doesn't rely on that fact. Also, the double peaks at 300 and 600 Hz. arein fact single sinusoids; they're drawn this way for clarity). Here, on theother hand, is the situation when the fundamental frequencies are 100 and 140:These pictures roughly correspond to the two sound examples above. The firstone is consonant and the second one, dissonant. The Helmholz theory explains theconsonance of the first example and the dissonance of the second one, by theabsence or presence of awkward pairs of sinusoids (in this example there aretwo: 280 and 300 Hz, and 400 and 420 Hz.) These pairs are far enough apart tobe perceived separately but close enough to interfere with each other byvibrating in heavily overlapping regions of the cochlea (Section 3.4).Plomp and Levelt go so far as to posit the consonance and dissonance of twosinusoids as a function of their separation in critical bands, thus:Under this rule, the two pairs of sinusoids in the dissonant example above arealmost as dissonant as possible (20 Hz. being close to 1/4 of a 100-Hz. criticalband). The wider separations in the first example are about 1/2 of acritical band and contribute much less dissonance.It's unavoidable that multiples of two fundamental frequencies would give riseto close neighbors here and there. The special reason the closely placedharmonics that occur in the first example didn't contribute to dissonance isthat they landed right on top of each other. For this to happen, the ratiobetween the two pitches must be an integer ratio. For instance, for thethird harmonic of one tone to coincide with the second harmonic of another,the fundamentals must be in a 2:3 ratio.Here are the definitions of some intervals given by integer ratios between oneand two (that is, within an octave), arranged from the most consonant to themost dissonant. The names are what they are for music-theoretical reasons tooabstruse to explain here:RATIO NAME1:1 unison2:1 octave3:2 fifth4:3 fourth5:4 major third5:3 major sixth8:5 minor sixth6:5 minor third4.2 The Western Musical ScaleIn many situations it's a good, practical move to choose, out of the set of allpossible musical pitches, a reasonably small set of pitches, called ascale, to which you would restrict yourself when writing music. Onereason for this might be that instruments, such as pianos or fretted guitars,are often designed to play a discrete set of pitches out of the whole continuum.(But if we consider that vocal music predates the development of keyboard andfretted instruments, this may cease to seem a compelling reason). Anotherconsideration might be that you would want to be able to write music down.It would be impractical to write all the pitches as numerical frequencies,so in practice (in the West as well as elsewhere) musical traditions havesettled on sets of pitches, typically between 5 and 21 in an octave, out ofwhich a working musical context might use 5 to 7 at a time. For example,the Western scale has 12 pitches per octave, and one often chooses amusicalkey which implies a choice of 7 out of the 12.Now suppose we wanted to divide the octave into equal intervals to make up amusical scale. (Using equal sized intervals sounds like a good choice; it'slike using a ruler whose marks are spaced regularly along it. You couldreasonably request, for instance, that the interval you hear when you play thefirst and third notes on the scale should be the same interval you get from thesecond to the forth, or the third to the fifth, and so on.) If we call theinterval between two successive pitches in the scale , then the intervalbetween the first and third is , and so on; the whole octave is aratio of . Since we know an octave is a ratio of 2:1, we get 041b061a72
