Audio effects transform sound. Sometimes in subtle, natural ways, and sometimes in wild and wacky ways. Audio effects crop up all over the place. For example:
- Almost every modern music recording will have some processing applied to improve or fix the sound recording, using audio effects plugins.
Example effect: Dynamic Compression.
- Every electric guitar player has a range of FX pedals to create their signature tone, or adjust their sound for particular songs.
Example effect:: Distortion.
- Solo musicians can use effects to let them create more versatile and complex performances.
