A widely split S2 can be associated with several different cardiovascular conditions, including Right bundle branch block , pulmonary stenosis , and atrial septal defect. Pulmonary S2 P2 will be accentuated loud P2 in pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary embolism.
S2 becomes softer in aortic stenosis. The rarer extra heart sounds form gallop rhythms and are heard in both normal and abnormal situations. It occurs at the beginning of diastole after S2 and is lower in pitch than S1 or S2 as it is not of valvular origin.
The third heart sound is benign in youth, some trained athletes, and sometimes in pregnancy but if it re-emerges later in life it may signal cardiac problems, such as a failing left ventricle as in dilated congestive heart failure CHF.
S3 is thought to be caused by the oscillation of blood back and forth between the walls of the ventricles initiated by blood rushing in from the atria. The reason the third heart sound does not occur until the middle third of diastole is probably that during the early part of diastole, the ventricles are not filled sufficiently to create enough tension for reverberation.
It may also be a result of tensing of the chordae tendineae during rapid filling and expansion of the ventricle. In other words, an S3 heart sound indicates increased volume of blood within the ventricle. An S3 heart sound is best heard with the bell-side of the stethoscope used for lower frequency sounds. A left-sided S3 is best heard in the left lateral decubitus position and at the apex of the heart, which is normally located in the 5th left intercostal space at the midclavicular line.
A right-sided S3 is best heard at the lower-left sternal border. The way to distinguish between a left and right-sided S3 is to observe whether it increases in intensity with inhalation or exhalation. A right-sided S3 will increase on inhalation, while a left-sided S3 will increase on exhalation. S3 can be a normal finding in young patients but is generally pathologic over the age of The most common cause of pathologic S3 is congestive heart failure.
S4 when audible in an adult is called a presystolic gallop or atrial gallop. This gallop is produced by the sound of blood being forced into a stiff or hypertrophic ventricle. It is a sign of a pathologic state, usually a failing or hypertrophic left ventricle, as in systemic hypertension, severe valvular aortic stenosis , and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The sound occurs just after atrial contraction at the end of diastole and immediately before S1, producing a rhythm sometimes referred to as the " Tennessee " gallop where S4 represents the "Ten-" syllable.
The combined presence of S3 and S4 is a quadruple gallop, also known as the "Hello-Goodbye" gallop. At rapid heart rates, S3 and S4 may merge to produce a summation gallop, sometimes referred to as S7. Atrial contraction must be present for production of an S4. It is absent in atrial fibrillation and in other rhythms in which atrial contraction does not precede ventricular contraction.
Heart murmurs are produced as a result of turbulent flow of blood strong enough to produce audible noise. They are usually heard as a whooshing sound. The term murmur only refers to a sound believed to originate within blood flow through or near the heart; rapid blood velocity is necessary to produce a murmur.
Most heart problems do not produce any murmur and most valve problems also do not produce an audible murmur. Though several different cardiac conditions can cause heart murmurs, the murmurs can change markedly with the severity of the cardiac disease.
An astute physician can sometimes diagnose cardiac conditions with some accuracy based largely on the murmur, related physical examination , and experience with the relative frequency of different heart conditions. However, with the advent of better quality and wider availability of echocardiography and other techniques, heart status can be recognized and quantified much more accurately than formerly possible with only a stethoscope, examination, and experience.

Dubbing is still very common in its foreign-language, voice-over sense. Which frankly might end up being pretty cool. This content is not meant to be a formal definition of this term. For the past few months, we have been fielding a regular survey dub bed the Events Participation Index, and for the most part it has shown that attitudes about traveling to attend in-person business events are at large negative. Then two years later, so did Wimdu, a Berlin-based company that some dub bed a clone.

The filtering effect develops in time and changes also according to the dynamics of the input signal. In this case, you can just set it up and watch it do its thing, but it also works very well to set a phaser on the delay's return channel. Setting up a feedback loop using an analogue mixer and a delay unit. As we mentioned above, why not try routing an effect return channel into another effect or sending reverb to it.
For example, apply reverb to the delay return, or plug a phaser into the delay return. Another idea is to insert a noise gate through the return channel of a reverb or delay and tweak the gate's threshold until it starts 'skattering'. Finally, muting can be used as a creative tool. It allows you to make decisions about the arrangement without rewriting the song structure. You can cycle an eight-bar loop of the song, and, using the mutes, create a well-structured backing track by bringing different elements of the arrangement in and out.
Learning to switch mutes a fraction before the beat is an art in itself. Software-based recorders allow you to automate all the switching and aux sends, but if you can it's still worth trying the real-time approach, which is more spontaneous and can bring you new ideas.
If you want to offer dub remixing to a client, all you need from them are the multitracks — in other words, separate audio files for drums, bass, guitars, keys, voices and so on. The first thing I do is to align all the parts and check that everything is synchronised.
The way I work is simple: I like to create a bar loop containing all parts playing simultaneously. That doesn't mean that they will play back at the same time in the dub mix, as during the mix I will use the mutes to bring parts in and out as my musical perception dictates. For example, if I'm getting a little bored I start switching instruments in and out or applying effects to the snare; and as the excitement rises I may improvise a calmer section of the mix by muting instruments such as the snare drum or the bass.
Often at the beginning of the mix I fade in a keyboard pad and bring in a hook from the vocals or guitars with effects, and when it feels right I unmute all the tracks and see what happens. After I've introduced the key element of the song I start igniting the real fireworks in terms of effects, until five minutes later it's probably time for a fade-out and a cup of tea or Jamaican equivalent.

If you want to know more about dub, or find more tracks to listen to, here are a few other web resources to help you out:. Digital Dub Mixing If you are used to working on a digital recording setup, there are a few problems that can occur when you apply dub mixing techniques.
Here are three of the most important troubleshooting issues: Setting up a feedback loop with a delay will result in unpleasant digital phasing.
To minimise this, you can set up an EQ or filter on the effect return channel to filter out some high frequencies. This will prevent the frequencies most affected by the phasing from entering the feedback loop.
You will also have problems with the SPL of the echo returns increasing to the point of digital distortion. Inserting a limiter in the return channel will allow you to experiment with the delay without the constant fear that your speakers and your ears! The nature of small digital desks and DAW systems makes it difficult to do real-time mixing, because you're constantly having to change pages, switch windows or mute with the mouse.
To overcome these problems you can use automation, or set up your DAW's mixing window to include the tape returns as well as effects returns. You can set up a delay plug-in with the right delay time and feedback and automate the aux sends as you wish.
