エフェクターの選び方 - TC楽器 - TCGAKKI

Now, I got the long -awaited electric guitar and an amplifier !! I'm going to try a song of a daiski artist. That's what is different, it's not that sound that you can listen to CDs and live !!

An effector is a tool for enhancing expression by processing sounds by processing a special effect. There are many types of effectors. The most popular is the distortion -based (hizzle) effector.

The attraction of the effector is that you can create a sound that has always been in your ears and create your own original sound. Of course, there are also expert -like uses, such as hidden effects and sound correction.

Here, we have summarized the basics, such as the type of effector, how to connect, tips for falling down, and tips for using it.

It has existed since the effect of the effector with fuzz, etc., and has been developed to reproduce the play by a trumpet player. By operating the filter with a pedal, the peak frequency is moved to a higher to low, and the tone changes such as "Wow Wow" and "Wow Wow" can be obtained. Controls the sound depending on the speed and depth of the pedal.

 

 


It is a filter -based effector that actively creates sound quality / tone and corrects the sound. From the mechanism, there are graphic equalizers (Glico) and parametric equalizer (Paraiko). The filter of each frequency (band) is lined up in a straight line, and "Glica" is a type that is easy to understand (graphical) like a frequency graph. On the other hand, "Paraiko" is a mechanism that changes the tone by setting the center frequency, level, and bandwidth. It's a bit difficult, but both have the difference in the operation method, but the final effect is the same. The so -called Donchari Sound uses equalizers to cut the midrange (midrange) to emphasize low -range (low range) and high range (high -range) to make it sharp.

 

 



The filter is activated according to the signal level input, creating a dynamic and percassive wow effect.

 


As for history, "Faz" first appeared in the 60's. It had a more unique sound, from a chopped sound like a broken transistor radio to something that could be intensely distorted and gained a tremendous sound. In the late 1960s, the Woman Tone, created by Eric Clapton by Marshall and Les Paul guitar, attracted attention. This was a "overdrive sound" that can be obtained by raising the volume of the vacuum tube amplifier as much as possible and giving an excess load. Then, it turned into a radical fuzz so far, and a "distortion" that enables more natural and subtle expressions of guitarists appeared. Furthermore, in the late 1970s, the "overdrive" that enhances expressiveness, closer to the natural "overdrive sound" with vacuum tube amplifiers and guitars.

For the time being, it is easy to understand if you can remember it as a light and natural distortion: overdrive, intense and heavy distortion: distortion, more intense and unique distortion: fuzz.

 

 

 

It's also a phither. Originally invented to reproduce the device that has a doppler effect called a lesley speaker. However, the effect is not the same and has been established as an independent effector. As the name suggests, adding the phase (phase) to the original signal is interfered, and the sound can be given to the sound. The effect varies depending on the number of phases of the phase shift circuit, and the larger the number of steps, the more sharp and sharp swells. On the other hand, those with a small number of stages are characterized by loose and coarse vintage sounds.

 

 

 


A booster is simply an effector for raising the volume, especially that is amplified without changing the original sound. By using a booster, you can overdrive an amplifier without difficulty even with a small output guitar. The preamp is controlled by tone and volume and can be used as a booster.

 


This is an effect that was often mounted on vintage amplifiers in pulse due to volume change. The effects obtained by the signal waveform and the speed of change change, from the gentle effects to the intense effects like a machine gun.

 


Effectively resembles a phase shifter, but in terms of circuit, he is a friend of delay. By adding a modulation (swell by changing the delay time) to the short delay, you can get a stronger jet effect and a fluctuation with a strong sense of modulation than the phase shifter.

 


An effector that adds a modulation to a short delay like a flanger to create a pale fluctuation. It is characterized by a shorter delay time than flangers, and has a comfortable and refreshing effect. Recently, it has changed to an analog type using BBD elements, and the number of digital products is increasing.

 


In general, as known as a guitar playing, it is an effect obtained by shaking the pitch up and down. Some of the phase shifter circuits and chorus circuits have the same effect on hearing.

 


It is a so -called "Yamabiko effect". Add a delayed sound to the original sound. Various effects can be obtained depending on the delay time and the number of repetitions. There are also types such as tape echo, analog delay, and digital delay due to differences in structure. Each has a unique sound.

 


It is difficult to understand the difference from delay / echo, but this is "reverberation" or "lingering". Originally, a spring -type reverb built into the amplifier was common, but now it is possible to easily obtain a wide variety of reverb effects such as the digital reverb, such as the hall, room, plate, gate, and spring mentioned above. 。

 


It uses the VCA (Voltage Controlded Amplifier) ​​circuit, and as the name suggests, it has the effect of compressing (crushed) sounds. In addition to stretching, the moment you play the string (attack) becomes unique and has the effect of giving the sound. In addition, the limiter also compresses the sound in the same way, but this has the effect of suppressing only the peak signal. It is a more corrected effector.

Rack type using vacuum tubes is the mainstream in recording studios.

 


This device is a device that reduces noise or shuts out the signal when the noise is not mixed. However, it is not perfect, so it is important to set it so that it does not affect the tone, and to cut the noise, such as guitar, amplifier, and shield cable.

 


There is a harmonic type and a phase type, which has the effect of raising the sound that is often buried in ensembles. Unlike equalizers, the feature is that it has little effect on the original sound.

 


The most radical effector?! Mixing the built -in transmitter and the guitar signal creates an unexpected pitch change and creates unique sounds such as ring sounds and metal sounds.

 


It reproduces the sound of the guitar amplifier, and can easily obtain real sounds in recording. Tech21 Sansamp and LINE6 pods, which are the origin of the amplifier simulator, are known. The latter has a wide variety of amplifiers and cabinets, so you can set a precise setting, up to miking and effects.

 


By reproducing the peculiar torso and overtones unique to the acousticogi, the sound of the electric can be turned into an acoustic sound. You can easily introduce Akogi sound without changing instruments at live performances.

 


The pitch shifter is an effector that changes the pitch, and its evolution is "Harmonizer" and "Warmy Pedal". An analog circuit octar bar cannot be freely pitch conversion and lacks tracking stability, but is popular with its unique tasting tone.

 


Originally developed for a country music steel guitar player, the volume is controlled by pedal operation. You can also erase the attack and play so that the sound emerges, like the violin's driving technique.

 


Effector that changes the flow of signals, such as switching instruments by switching in input signals, changing the output signal to change the amplifier, or switching multiple effectors at once by creating a signal loop. is.

 


1. Compact type

Foot pedal type. It is compact and easy to carry, and many of them are battery -driven.

 

 

2. Rack mount type

There are many high -quality and high -performance products in studios and commercial equipment. On the other hand, the weight and size are large and it is troublesome to move.

 

Efficiently setting a number of compact effectors on the board makes it easier to set and carry, preventing wiring and power -related problems.

 

So -called all -in one. Combined with multiple effectors and switching systems, it is one. It is common to make a memory combination of effects, and it is powerful in live stages. It can be recommended for beginners in terms of knowing a wide variety of effects. On the other hand, it is multifunctional, but the degree of freedom of interrupting the connection order of effects and other compact effectors.

 

Since the effect changes depending on the connection order, there is no absolute order. It is a general setting example. There are exceptions such as vintage fuzz, such as bugs, if they are not connected first from the guitar.

It is not an effect, but by flying the guitar signal by radio waves, you can freely staging without being bound by the shield cable. Consists of transmitter that skips the signal and receiver receiving.

 

Surprisingly, the battery runs out of the battery !! Especially digital effectors have a lot of power consumption and may be gone quickly. When the voltage of the battery drops, the effects of the effect may become shallow, and the effect of the spatial system becomes distorted. The LED indicator is getting darker, so let's replace the battery as soon as possible. If you use an AC adapter or power supply, you can save battery costs and prevent it from running out of sound during live performances. But don't forget to pay attention to the voltage, polarity, and acceptable amp of the adapter !!

The shield cable can reduce noise by using as good as possible. In the unlikely event that there is no sound, do not be impatient and calmly find the cause. You can avoid trouble by cleaning the input / output terminals and shields of the effector on a regular basis.
