Computer revolution is signaling developments and makes the difference in music creation in our days.
Recording reproduction and sound volume techniques is expanding by using
digital technologies. Undoubtedly for having the prime sound we must use pickups sensors
or microphones. Having this in mind, technical evolution in seeking new quality products
to match the prime sound sources with digital technology.
That is what we do in our Special Analog to Digital Testing Studio.
We recording the original sound of the instrument, then a digital analysis took place.
Further more three main different elements of instrument’s original sound
are working out through a sophisticated software.
1) The origin of the fundamental frequency that defines the tone of the sound.
2) The volume of the sound, that comes from the oscillations of the sound source.
3) Hue, that depends mostly from certain harmonics and gives the character of the musical instrument.
Further more, through a special console and a unique software comes out
the right pickup or sensor for the instrument under test having all those characteristics
of a perfect match.
Measurement Rig - devised by TAP
The Impact Hammer Rig is a tool for measuring the sound output of musical instruments.
Development this rig through several generations of prototypes and then worked
in a flexibility system to produce a tool that is ruggedly built, portable
and capable of calibrated, laboratory-grade acoustical measurements.
The force driving the hammer head, comes from the electronic device system with return springs
and the hammer excursion movement controled by recharge mechanism.
