  • Vocoder
    A vocoder (/ˈvoʊkoʊdər/, short for voice encoder) is a category of voice codec that analyzes and synthesizes the human voice signal for audio data compression, multiplexing, voice encryption, voice transformation, etc.
  • Echo
    In audio signal processing and acoustics, echo is a reflection of sound that arrives at the listener with a delay after the direct sound.
  • Reverberation
    Reverberation, in psychoacoustics and acoustics, is the persistence of sound after a sound is produced.
  • Phaser (effect)
    A phaser is an electronic sound processor used to filter a signal by creating a series of peaks and troughs in the frequency spectrum.
  • Ring modulation
    Ring modulation is a signal-processing function in electronics, an implementation of amplitude modulation or frequency mixing, performed by multiplying two signals, where one is typically a sine wave or another simple waveform.
  • Flanging
    Flanging /ˈflændʒɪŋ/ is an audio effect produced by mixing two identical signals together, one signal delayed by a small and gradually changing period, usually smaller than 20 milliseconds.
  • Chorus effect
    In music, a chorus effect (sometimes chorusing or chorused effect) occurs when individual sounds with approximately the same timbre, and very similar pitch converge and are perceived as one.
  • Delay (audio effect)
    Delay is an audio effect which records an input signal to an audio storage medium, and then plays it back after a period of time.
  • Octave effect
    Octave effect boxes are a type of special effects unit which mix the input signal with a synthesised signal whose musical tone is an octave lower or higher than the original.
  • Distortion (music)
    Distortion and overdrive are forms of audio signal processing used to alter the sound of amplified electric musical instruments, usually by increasing their gain.
  • Distortion
    Distortion is the alteration of the original shape (or other characteristic) of something, such as an object, image, sound or waveform.
  • Timeline of recordings with a flanging effect
    Part of the output signal is usually fed back to the input (a 're-circulating delay line'), producing a resonance effect which further enhances the intensity of the peaks and troughs.
  • Audio feedback
    Audio feedback (also known as acoustic feedback, simply as feedback, or the Larsen effect) is a special kind of positive feedback which occurs when a sound loop exists between an audio input (for example, a microphone or guitar pickup) and an audio output (for example, a loudspeaker).
  • Gated reverb
    Gated reverb is an audio processing technique that is applied to recordings of drums (or live sound reinforcement of drums in a PA system) to make the drums sound powerful and "punchy," while keeping the overall mix clean and transparent-sounding.
  • Prismizer
    Prismizer (/ˈprɪsəmaɪzər/) is a new type of audio codec that sounds similar to a vocoder in that it synthesizes the human voice signal, but it retains the freshness of sound vibrations.
  • Noise gate
    A noise gate or gate is an electronic device or software that is used to control the volume of an audio signal.
