Aural Exciter since the 70’s.
Do you know that feeling when you’re playing on guitar however you’re missing something? You’ve got many effect like distortion, overdrive, delay or something programed effect. You’re sure something is missing from your music and it’s not other than fatty and lively sounding.
Fortunately there is a solution for this. It’s a very interesting device.
It’s Aural Exciter or “harmonic enrichment”. This circuit adds harmonics sounds for the incoming signal.
Aphex Electronics company made the first device in the 70’s.
Initially it was made with vacuum tubes later with transistor. Nowadays you can get it as a software.
How does Aural Exciter work?
The incoming frequency multiplied by circuit. Well, if the incoming frequency signal is 2 kHZ than the circuit generate it to 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 kHZ frequency.
