Fourier Transform — Music

*listen to this music while reading this article, this is Fourier transform on its finest! 🙂

Jimmy Hendrix, Steve Vai, John Mayer, BB King, and all those musicians, ever wonder how and why they sound so good? Apart from them being virtuoso’s,  their musical equipment played a big part on their genius.

Signal Processing and Frequency Adjustments are the core of their gadgets, from their Instruments (Electric Guitars), vibrations are being passed/received on their pickups (Guitar Pickups) and in return converts these frequencies in forms that their Effects (Distortion, Overdrive,  etc.) can manipulate through Signal Processing and then passes it to the Amplifiers which again, processes these signals into sounds that we can listen to.

And the process mentioned above uses Fourier Transform extensively.
