What we Lose and what we Gain: An Investigation on the Effects of Crosstalk-Neutralization when Utilizing Drum Replacement on a Multimono Drum Recording
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This research was conducted to construct guidelines for future research by investigating theperceived influence of crosstalk-neutralization in drum replacements. A drum pattern wasrecorded on an acoustic drum kit and reconstructed by using drum replacements of samplesfrom the same drum kit. A small experiment was conducted were trained listeners who areused to hear drums during a recording session had to describe the difference between theacoustic performance and the sampled replica. Results from the experiment were coded byVPA and showed that the greatest difference between the acoustic performance and sampledreplica were the acoustic properties of the drum kit. A refined set of stimuli was designed toimprove the acoustic properties of the sampled replicas by blending different sources ofcrosstalk. A larger experiment was conducted to investigate if trained listeners would show apreference of crosstalk when evaluating the believability and production value of drumreplacements in music production. The results showed that trained listeners does not have apreference regarding the production value of drum replacements but does consider crosstalkfrom snare drum as improving the believability in drum replacements.
