Frequency work is often overlooked, but can have a big impact on the quality of your music. If you do not work on your frequency regularly, the entire mix can sound flat and unnatural. In addition, the frequencies you work on may end up masking or amplifying certain instruments in the track. For example, decreasing the fundamental frequency of an instrument produces a less powerful sound while increasing it adds depth. Similarly, boosting harmonics can increase “presence,” but may cause the track to sound overly harsh.
In physics, the term frequency (also called hertz) refers to the number of cycles of alternating current or voltage that pass through a point in a second. It is also commonly used to describe the number of wavelengths that a periodic phenomenon travels in a unit of time. For instance, visible light has a wavelength of about 380 to 740 nanometers; radiation with shorter wavelengths includes ultraviolet and X-rays; and radiation with longer wavelengths is infrared, microwaves and radio waves.
For employee deductions and benefits, the frequency of the schedule or frequency of the rate code determines how often the deduction or benefit is calculated for a pay period. The default frequency for most deductions is weekly, but you can set it to other pay frequencies, such as bi-weekly or monthly.
In this study, researchers investigated the effects of feedback frequency and specificity on performance on a simulated order fulfillment task. The results showed that the more frequent and more specific the feedback, the higher the quality of performance. They also found an interaction effect between the feedback frequency and the knowledge characteristics.
