T15 - All About: Timbre

Alex Case, University of Massachusetts Lowell - Lowell, MA, USA

Distilling timbre into its essential elements reveals its rich meaning and lets us make a direct connection between it and the decisions, actions, and devices that drive it. Much is in the hands of the performer—their technique and their instrument. Engineers have obvious impact through microphone choice and placement. But we also focus on how to use compression, delay, reverb, and distortion effects to refine timbre.
