Unit 5: Production Skills and Context

Acoustic Theory Table

Life In the Old Days

Samples

Sound / Patch Name Envelope Shaping Filter Settings Wavelength Waveforms used Amplitude Harmonic Content (fundamental & harmonics) How Your Sound Relects Acoustic Theory (what was the sound were you trying to achive Strings / Pipes / Wind)
Good Bass No Attack, Decay half way, Sustain over half way up and No Release. The cut off is nearly closed, so that the frequency can get through and the resonance is 15% so it can give it a boost of sharp effect of ‘whoa’ sound. The wavelength lasts 6 seconds Shin Wave 65hz fundam, at -25 db the first wave at -25db, the second wave at 45 db and the third wave at 65 db. I created the good funky bassline to compare like other basslines that producers master their own bassline.
Pucky Kick No Attack, Decay little half way, No Sustain and No Release. The cut off is nearly closed, so that the frequency can get through and the resonace is 100% so it can give a boost of a kick sound. The wavelength lasts 5 seconds Noise Wave 90hz fundam at -25 db the first wave at -40db, the second wave at -25db, the thrid wave at -25db, the fourth wave at -45db. I created the pucky funky kick to give a different taste of sound like an ordinary kick.
Electric Clear Snare No Attack, Decay little 25% up, No Sustain and No Release The cut off is almost closed to give out the frequency of the pitchy sound. The wavelength lasts 5 seconds Noise Wave 350hz fundam at -30 db the first wave at -40db, the second wave at -35db, the third wave at -35db, I created the Electric Clear Snare to pitch the normal snare to give out the different sound of the snare.
Crispy Hi-Hat No Attack, Decay little 25% up, No Sustain and No Release The cut off is 100% open to allow the pitch freely open while the resonance is half way to give the sound of hi-hat pitchy. The wavelength lasts 4 seconds Noise Wave 14800hz fundam at -40db the first wave at -55db, the second wave at -50db, the thrid wave at -40db I created the Crispy Hi-Hat to experiment the quality of a normal closed hi-hat to make it different to other types of hi-hats.
Dial Tone Xylophone No Attack, Decay almost half way, Sustain half way and No Release The cut off is 40% open while the resonance is half way through The wavelength lasts 6 seconds Square Wave 250hz fundam at -15db the first wave at -15db, the second wave at -15db, the third wave at -50db, the fourth wave at -55db, the fifth wave at -45db I created the Dial Tone Xylophone to make a catchy melody like a dial tone with the futuristic xylophone.
Race Car No Attack. Decay half way, Sustain 60% half way up and Release is half way The cut off is 37% open to allow the LFO to genertate the ‘Race Car’ sound while the resonance is 45% almost half way up The wavelength lasts 4 seconds Triangle Wave 99hz fundam at -40db The first wave at -40db, the second wave at -40db, the third wave at -40db, the fourth wave at -45db I created the Race Car to make it exaclty like a real race car but not really in reality.
Scratch Attack at 5% up, Decay at 50% up, Sustain at 60% up and Release at 10% up. The cut off is 37% quarter way up while the resonance is 55% half way. The wavelength lasts 5 seconds Triangle Wave 80hz fundam at -25db the first wave at -25db, the second wave at -30db, the third wave at -30db, the fourth wave at -25db I created the Scratch because I found scratching catchy and slick.
Siganl Attack is at 5% up, Decay is at 50% half way up, Sustain is at 45% almost half way up and Release is at 10% up. The cut off is 40% open while the resonance is 53% half way. The wavelength lasts 5 seconds Square Wave 260hz fundam at -30db The first wave at -30db, the second wave at -40db, the third wave at -40db, the fourth wave at -40db, the fifth wave at -40db, the sixth wave at -40db, the seventh wave at -45db, the eighth wave at -50db I created the Signal because it is almost like an signal sound but in the different sounding signal than normal.
Police Siren Attack at 5% up, Decay at 50% up, Sustain at 60% up and Release at 10% up. The cut off is 40% open while the resonance is 49% almost half way. The wavelength lasts 5 seconds Triangle Wave 73hz fundam at -40db The first wave at -40db and second wave at -45db I created the Police Siren to make exaclty like the police siren with a pulse effect.
Dramatic Sound Attack at 5% up, Decay at 50% up, Sustain at 60% up and Release at 11% up. The cut off is 50% half way while the resonance is 50% half way. The wavelength lasts 5 seconds Shawtooth Wave 260hz fundam at -35db The first wave at -35db, the second wave at -45db and the third wave at -50db I created the Dramatic Sound to make it like a scene when someone is about to face the consequences.
