T11 - Total Timbre: Tools and Techniques for Tweaking and Transforming TonePresenter:
Alex Case, University of Massachusetts Lowell - Lowell, MA, USA
Recordists shape timbre through the coordinated use of several different signal processors. While equalization is a great starting point, the greatest tonal flexibility comes from strategic use of additional timbre-modifying signal processors: compression, delay, reverb, distortion, and pitch shift. This tutorial defines the timbre-driving possibilities of the full set of studio effects, connecting key FX parameters to their relevant timbral properties, with audio examples that reveal the results. This multi-effect approach to timbre enables you to extract more from the effects you already use, and empowers you to get the exact tones you want.
