Multiple times, or “multipletimes” as it is often referred to, describes a type of time-based compression effect. This technique involves taking a single sound clip or recording and playing it back multiple times in rapid succession, with each successive playback being slightly shorter than the one before it. The result is a kind of auditory illusion, where a sound appears to be “thinning” out or becoming more ethereal as it is repeated. This effect has been used extensively in music production, especially in electronic music, and is often used to create an otherworldly atmosphere or to give a sense of movement to a track. Multiple times is also commonly used in sound design for film and television, where it can provide a subtle but effective means of shifting the mood of a scene.
