What is a synthesizer anyway?
A synthesizer isa machine that can synthesize sounds.
The verb “synthesize,” which means “to synthesize,” has been transformed into a noun and “er” has been added.
Because of the requirement to be able to synthesize, some synthesizers do not have a keyboard.
What is the difference between a keyboard and a synthesizer?
A keyboard is any instrument (especially an electronic instrument) with a keyboard.
Among them, synthesizers are capable of synthesizing sounds.
To use an analogy, it is like a poodle among dogs (a synthesizer among keyboards).
However, as mentioned above, a synthesizer without a keyboard cannotbe called a keyboard .
What do you mean by synthesizing sounds?
The word “synthesize” does not mean to synthesize “Do” and “Re” to make “Do #”.
The “do” and “re” are to be played separately and at the same time.
In simple terms, it is about creating chords.
What is the synthesizer used for?
There are a number of things you can do with synthesizers, two of which are specific.
By playing the sounds of various instruments separately and synthesizing them, one person can play an orchestra.
Some sheet music, like a band score, combines scores for various instruments into one.
The synthesizer allows them to be played back simultaneously.
This is neither piano nor orchestra, but a popular Youtube video of Daichi, a famous beat box player, playing on a synthesizer.
It sounds like a lot of fun, and I can’t help but smile when I hear it.
The procedure is the same as for a one-person orchestra, but the purpose is different.
As for composing music, it is more common to use synthesizers with keyboards.
Since the synthesizer comes preloaded with a variety of sound sources, instruments can be selected and synthesized.
Therefore, a song is created by synthesizing each instrument as it is played on the keyboard (or software, etc.).
In particular, many of them are capable of reproducing very realistic sound these days, and can be heard in sound quality as if they were actually being played.
In addition, there are also “Vocaloids” and other vocaloids that play singing voices, which can be combined to compose J-POP and other music.
Also, since the sound source is digital, it is naturally easy to record and output to a PC. (Many of them are used while connected to a PC, to begin with.)
You can also upload your compositions to the Internet and have people listen to them.
Finally, here is a video using a synthesizer called Montate by YAMAHA.
