In this video I’ll demonstrate the Haas effect.
It is a psychoacoustical phenomenon discovered in 1949 by Helmut Haas. The law states that when one sound is followed by another with a delay time of 40 ms or less, the two are perceived as a single sound. If the delay time is higher the human ear will instead register the sound as an echo.
This effect may enhance your audio productions by:
- taking your sounds from mono to stereo.
- making an instrument sound bigger, wider.
- adding depth to your sound.
Playing around with these VSTi’s. Drums and FX were pre-arranged. Main focus was the ABL3 and how fast one can create something decent.
Please use headphones and adjust that volume down at first so you don’t blast your ears off.
I will attempt to enhance the track Reflection just for fun. I’ll apply some basic mixing and mastering and see what I end up with. Check it out in the 3 videos below and you decide the difference between the before and after. Continue reading Mixing and Mastering the 8-bit song Reflection
