Abstract
(EN)
Percussion sounds and damped sounds from a first fundamental tone producing unit (100) provided to correspond to individual parts of a playing drum set are received by a microphone such as a pick-up microphone, and electric sounds from the microphone are tone-regulated by a tone regulating unit (26) with their analog sounds kept unchanged and digital conversion not involved. Then, a reproducing unit (34) reproduces the sounds based on the output sounds from the tone regulating unit (26). Because of the absence of such operations as digital conversion processing, signal transmission via a photocoupler or the like, and selection and reproduction of pre-recorded sounds, the player does not recognize the time lag between a striking operation and the production of a played sound and uses, as fundamental tones, striking sounds and damped sounds produced when the first fundamental tone producing unit (100) is struck, thereby enabling reproduction faithful to a delicate striking technique of the player.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, des sons de percussion et des sons amortis provenant d'une première unité de production de ton fondamental (100) correspondant à différentes parties d'une batterie sont captés par un microphone tel qu'un microphone de captage. Les tons des sons électriques provenant du microphone sont réglés par une unité de réglage des tons (26) qui ne modifie pas leurs sons analogiques et qui n'implique pas de conversion numérique. Ensuite, une unité de reproduction (34) reproduit lesdits sons sur la base des sons de sortie de l'unité de réglage des tons (26). En raison de l'absence d'opérations telles qu'un traitement de conversion numérique, une transmission de signal via un photocoupleur, etc., et de sélection et reproduction de sons préenregistrés, le batteur ne reconnaît pas le décalage temporaire entre une opération de frappe et la production d'un son joué et utilise, comme tons fondamentaux, des sons de frappe et des sons amortis produits lorsque la première unité de production de tons fondamentaux (100) est frappée, ce qui permet de reproduire fidèlement une technique de frappe délicate du batteur.
