SIGNIFICANT SOUNDS

These sounds are not as iconic as Cult Sounds, but signifying for certain genres or periods of popular music. These sounds are mostly recognizable as individual sounds, as for example the Stratocaster Guitar or the Tape Stop Effect, just to name two.

Other sounds appear much more in the background like the pad sound or the double tracking effect. Those sounds are more unobstrusive, only being recognized if familiar with the sound. But still they are used so often that listeners are used to this kind of sound category.
