I have no idea what any of the following means….
Keeler Sound is disrupting the music industry with a new line of Sound Processors – “The Performer Series” – to pre-process sound in both nylon and steel string acoustic guitars, eliminating the need for post-production.
Both “The Shorty” and “The Jumbo” sound processors combine the use of sound ports, brass chime pipes, intake and exhaust passages to eliminate and regulate unpleasant overtones and control feedback prior to transduction. A diaphragm unit and optional sound collector are used to enhance, accelerate, scavenge and multiply the harmonic structure of the sound wave, resulting in perfectly balanced tone. The processors can be used with or without a diaphragm and the diaphragms are available in various materials and styles – wood, carbon fiber, slotted and non-slotted.
Keeler Sound designer and engineer Rick Keeler says use of the diaphragm serves several purposes: to inject the properties from the diaphragm material into the sound wave, altering the sensitivity, equalization and compression stature. Another purpose is to capture the sound waves and reproduce them as an exact duplicate of the original, which can be amplified and transformed into acoustic or electric energy. Game Changer: Use of the Keeler Sound Processor changes the sound wave and timbre of the acoustic instrument, giving the musician flexibility to transform the overall tone and harmonics of the guitar.
