Psychoacoustics: How Perception Influences Music Production
Though we can measure sound with meters and spectrum analyzers, how we experience it is a matter of human perception—otherwise known as the field of psychoacoustics.
Even if you aren’t aware of the term, you likely engage with psychoacoustic principles in music production on a regular basis—for example, manipulating an unusual sound source to be heard as a conventional instrument.
