THXIs a company that conducts quality checks on software such as DVDs from movie theaters and household AV playback equipment and is permitted to credit the THX mark for things that have cleared the provisions of THX. When watching a movie at a movie theater, a DVD, a Blu-ray Disc, etc., THX's logo was projected before the work began and even a person who did not know THX saw the electronic sound "BUUNNUN" flowing If you have a thing you should have seen it once.

However, it is said that the electronic sound flowing with the THX logo is not well known, and its identityMusic ThingI am clarifying. Also, as THX logo that flows before the screening of movie works has various versions, I tried to summarize some of the things that are being published.

The electronic sound that flows before the work is screened at the movie theater is "Deep notePeople who do not know well under the name of "can be confirmed from the following.

Deep notes,Lucas filmAnd the late Steve Jobs was foundedNeXTIt was created in 1982 by Mr. James Moorer having a career working in.

On the Internet rumors such as "deep notes were made with Yamaha's CS-80" are flaring, and it is a state where I do not know what information is true. So, let's check with yourself that Music Thing sent an e-mail to Moorer asking "Deep Note Creation Process". As a result, Mr. Moorer himself replied and gave a polite answer as to how the deep note was created.

Moorer said, "When I was enrolled in the Lucasfilm audio group, Lucasfilm developed a THX sound system logo that I just developed as a movie"Star Wars Episode 6 / Jedi's ReturnIt was planned to be inserted before screening. I received a request from the producer of THX to make music to be played along with the logo, "he told me about the development secret story of Deep Note.

The contents of the request by the producer was "It is quiet at the beginning of the song, gradually grows and eventually becomes a banging sound." Moorer started with incorporating the music program of the synthesizer that digitized cello's sound into the just-developed audio processor "ASP (Audio Signal Processor)" at that time. Next, it creates a score composed of C program containing about 20,000 lines of code, and randomly tries to play free game, which leads to completion of deep note.


Finally, at the premiere preview of "Star Wars Episode 6 / Return of the Jedi", "Deep Note" created by Mr. Moorer will be performed successfully. However, there was a situation where the staff lost the original sound source of the deep note. Mr. Moorer creates a deep note again, but since he adjusted the frequency randomly when making the original, he complained that "different sounds will be heard" from the surroundings. After that, Moorer himself discovered the original sound source, it seems that it did not become extraordinary.

In addition, the original deep notes can be confirmed from the following.
