I don't know of any published studies on this, but the basic cause is well known, and it is a fundamental limitation on the quality of sound reproduction. When you pan the two chords hard left and right, your two loudspeakers (or earphones) are acting as two independent (monophonic) sound sources. Human hearing is very good at locating the position of ...

First of all congrats to the OP for an intriguing and innovative idea. I don't know of any specific studies about this subject either, but I think that the reason why the two chords don't sound dissonant when separated left and right is the same as when they are separated by an octave, and the reason why (traditionally) we have 9th, 11th chords and not 2nd,...

I solved the problem. The solution is trivial: Restarting the App In my case, GarageBand. With many apps open, Mac moves some apps from RAM to SSD. When a user presses a MIDI key for the first time, Mac moves the respective sound from SSD back into RAM. Which takes time and causes the cracking sound. Same for long notes and chords (they seemingly has ...

I am a chromesthete, but a fairly weak one as far as I can tell. Colors only present themselves with musical sounds (yes, this influences what I define as "music"), and I have yet to derive a particular pattern. I'm fairly certain it has something to do with chord structure and overtones, but I am not completely sure. I have anxiety and PTSD so my state of ...

You should never connect a guitar straight in to a Line-In connection. Line-in is around 1 Volt (in reality, audio signals are rated in dB and line levels can be in a range but 1V is a useful reference point) Guitars output somewhere around 150mV so you really need to put a pre-amp in the chain. A pre-amp will also sort out your impedance matching (which ...

Humidity is known to have an effect on bow hair - hairs stretch longer with higher humidity, as mentioned by Carl in his comment. Interesting points here on which season (!) you should get your bow rehaired in depending on atmospheric conditions, they also recommend getting it done locally... Did you buy your bow from a different region/country? The ...

Your question is broad, but there is already some info about tools in other answer, so I'll focus on the mixing process. A possible approach to begin with (and many experienced musicians use it too) is what could be called "mix as you go". Start with your first track and adjust its master fader so that the track meter stays around -18dB most of the the ...

Some great tools for making game music are FL Studio, LMMS, and GarageBand. There are plenty of tutorials on the internet as well.
