  • Music Narrative Essay

    summer of 2001; my oldest sister, of the two, would always drive around in our hometown playing her favorite alternative rock tracks. It was calming driving the backshore, with the waves crashing into the rocks. It was like I was at peace sitting in the backseat of her jeep, just watching the ocean; I could feel myself hearing Stone Temple Pilots. At that moment, I was sure I found my liking, and that would be rock and roll. When artists like Radiohead and the Foo Fighters came on, I’d be so intrigued on how well they constructed a song. In that time, I knew I would want to be like them one day. At the age of ten, I asked my parents for my first guitar. The guitar was a classic, old school fender that has seen better days. It came with an amplifier. All was worth about thirty bucks. Regardless, however, it was my first real musical instrument that I owned. I tried fixing it up the best I could, putting new strings on it. When it did play, I Just would be the happiest kid. The feeling of hitting the notes had been extraordinary. Of course like any beginner, I wasn’t great at playing, I didn’t even know the chords. My parents disliked it and my sisters had always said I would never be able to play well enough. With that, I wanted to prove them wrong, it was my destiny to learn the guitar and master it. I started visiting an old friend of mine’s house to just jam out and make songs for fun. His name was Louie, a very quirky little Greek kid. He was a little know-it all, for…

  • The Importance Of Reamping

    effective trick and a common technique. In a nutshell, use a reamping box to record a dry signal to your DAW while listening to the tailored tone from your amp. Next, use the reamping box to play the dry performance back to your guitar amp. You can dial in alternate tones using the same performance that has already been captured. Mic the amp as usual and record these alternate tones till your heart’s content. This is a great way to layer different sounds while using just one take. Let’s…

  • Guitar History

    in mind the style of music you will be playing. It is no good buying a "shred-master" metal machine if your primary musical influences are jazz or blues. Take a look at the players you often listen to and see what they are using. Most players will cite a particular model or type of guitar as being best for a particular style of music. An example would be using hollow body electrics for jazz or Telecasters for country music. However, there are no rules, and the general wisdom is at best a…

  • Ecg Lab Report

    The aim of this project is to develop an Electrocardiography (ECG) amplifier circuit from scratch. The main challenges include amplifying the desired week signal in the presence of noise from other muscles and electrical sources. As this semester was about transistors we had to use transistors at some stage in this project. The project was successfully designed and built in two ways: one with solely using operational amplifiers and other using transistors as differential amplifiers.…

  • Oscilloscope Response Paper

    That being said, the experimenters noted some values to be inconsistent with the accepted values, namely the values obtained for the CMRR of each amplifier, as the CMRR values were significantly lower than the accepted values, and the CMRR value for the instrumentation amplifier was less than the CMRR value for the differential gain amplifier, as the converse is supposed to be true. The experimenters believed that equipment capabilities or noise in the environment and circuit may have…

  • Piezo Effect Essay

    Moreover, an operational power amplifier is significant indeed in order to drive piezoelectric actuator [9]. A simple instrumentation system is shown in Figure 2. 5. First stage of instrumentation system is transducer which convert physical stimulus in form of heat, light, sound, movement or the like into an electrical signal with magnitude of the stimulation. The received signal may be insufficiently powerful to operate the display system. Therefore, the received signal needs to undergo…

    Output Devices - Crossovers, Amplifiers, and Loudspeakers. Output devices, however, are what are known as the noisy part of any PA system which consist of crossovers, amplifiers, and loudspeakers. Powered speakers will have all three of these specific components as well as a limiter though you can purchase each separately if the situation demands it. Crossovers The chances are whatever PA system you use, there will be a crossover present. Crossovers are filters which are specialized to split…
