(compMus1) Basic Synthesis Controls – Gain

This post and subsequent ones with the Basic Synthesis Controls… title break down the lectures and reading (pp. 193 – 198) into easier to digest chunks.


Gain refers to the amount of amplification applied to a signal. Typically it relates to loudness. Internal to a system it can affect other parameters. Gain can refer to either boosting (+) or cutting (-) the amplitude. Cutting the amplitude of a signal is often called attenuation.
