  Modulation (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An enharmonic modulation is when one treats a chord as if it were spelled enharmonically as a functional chord in the destination key, and then proceeds in the destination key.
Phrase (also called direct or abrupt) modulation is a modulation in which one phrase ends with a cadence in the original key, and begins the next phrase in the destination key without any transition material linking the two keys.
Metric modulation (known also as tempo modulation) is the most common, while timbral modulation (gradual changes in tone color), and spatial modulation (changing the location from which sound occurs) are also used.

 Modulation (music)
When analyzing a piece that uses this style of modulation, the common chord is labeled with its function in both the original and the destination keys, as it can be seen either way.
A sequence does not have to modulate; a modulating sequence is known as a
Though modulation generally refers to changes of key, any parameter may be modulated, particularly in music of the 20th and 21st century.

 Modulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A device that performs modulation is known as a modulator and a device that performs the inverse operation of demodulation is known as a demodulator (sometimes detector or demod).
In the case of PSK, ASK and QAM, the modulation alphabet is often conveniently represented on a constellation diagram, showing the amplitude of the I signal at the x-axis, and the amplitude of the Q signal at the y-axis, for each symbol.
The term digital baseband modulation is synonymous to line codes, which are methods to transfer a digital bit stream over an analog lowpass channel using a discrete number of signal levels, by modulating a pulse train (a square wave instead of a sinusoidal waveform).

 audio-rate frequency modulation
The rate of the vibrato is determined by the modulator's frequency, the depth of the vibrato (or how far above and below its center frequency the carrier will be pushed) is determined by the modulator's amplitude and the shape of the vibrato is determined by the modulator's waveform.
The greater the amplitudes of the modulating wave are at its peaks, the greater the maximum distance the carrier is pushed off its center frequency.
It is this parameter, the changing strength of the modulating wave, that allows us to create dynamic, time-varying spectra of a sort very different from subtractive filtering and one that can, under certain circumstances, mimic the complexity of real-world sound characteristics using only two oscillators.

While it's a given that most music fans have dabbled in air guitar, it would seem that too few of us appreciate the power of a righteous key change.
It's the musical equivalent of Leo Barry's one-handed mark in last year's AFL Grand Final; a last-gasp effort for eternal glory.
Songwriter Jimmy Webb once lamented, "Suggest modulation to a contemporary musician and you are likely to be sneered at, if not banished in perpetuity to the boneyard of the un-hip."
