Terms in this set (65)
What are the output of auxes 7&8 normalled to?
The bottom headphone amp in the studio
What is a popular alternate method (not using groups) of routing a signal from the input path to Pro Tools using a patch?
Patching direct out to DAW in
What does a transducer do?
Takes one form of energy and converts it into another
Which type of microphone is most likely to have a figure 8 polar pattern?
Simply put what is impedance
What type of microphone was used in early telephones?
Will the sound from the front of a figure 8 microphone sound the same as sound entering the back?
Not necessarily, they may have a different sound
Does the pad in a condenser microphone and the one in a console mic pre input affect the same signal in the same way? How or in what way?
No, in a condenser mic the pad is protecting the output circuit.
In a console it protects the mic pre.
Does the insert patch of the Trident 88 console come before or after the EQ?
Do all of the channel of the Trident 88 console have at least on transformer?
No, channels 25-32 do not
What does the Post EQ-Pre EQ button in the EQ section do?
Moves the Insert Point from after the EQ to before the EQ
If you wish to record multiple takes on the same track what option should you choose?
To insure vocal clarity, a compressors attack time should be set to?
Allow for important transients to be unaffected
Does the Trident 88 input channel have a pan pot or a balance control for it's output to the stereo buds and why?
It has a Pan pot because the signal to the stereo buss from the input channel is a mono signal feeding a stereo field
A compressor's control parameters are located in its?
Side chain path
In a noise gate the signal above the threshold is?
In a compressor the output level would be the input level minus?
The gain reduction
D'essing used EQ to minimize sibilants on a vocal track?
False - it uses compression
Tape compression adds low frequency punch to a recording
False - even order harmonics and hi frequency distortion
Mid/Side compression is used mostly on compression recording?
False - it's used on mastering
What are the patches needed in order to use the Lexicon PCM91?
Your choice of Aux Out into the PCM - out of the PCM into either Line in, Monitor return, or FX return
First reflections come after?
The initial sound
What is very basic type of compression that has fallen out of favor?
The main characteristic of linking the two sides of a stereo compressor is that it makes setting the controls easy?
False - the linking of the thresholds
With a compressor the signal above the threshold is?
Reduced by the amount of dB set by the ratio
With a gate when in inverse butte is despres see the?
Functionality is reversed, the signal above the threshold is reduced by the range setting
What setting determines how the selected ratio is applied once the signal crosses over the threshold compressor?
If you feed the identical signal to both a VU meter and a Peak meter at the same time, which one will show a higher reading?
What types of signals can the input module accept?
Low impedance balanced microphone, high or low level balanced line input & the output from a musical instrument
What is Group 3 normalled to?
Track 3 of Pro Tools
What type of EQ are the High Low frequency sections in the Trident 88 console?
The PFL and AFL solo modes are?
In Mix Mode what button switches the output of Pro Tools from the monitor path to the input path?
What are the 3 main audio paths of the board called?
Input path, Groups, Monitor path
From what path do we derive our headphone mixes?
What does I/P Rev stand for and what does it do?
Input Reverse and it flips the line input and the monitor input signals in that channel
What would you use the MIC insert button & patch?
You want to use an external mic pre
What patch will allow me to make copies of an audio signal?
If you wish to record multiple takes on the same track in Pro Tools what option should you choose?
In the I/O sections of a track in Pro Tools, what does the top choice refer to?
The proximity effect results in a __________ boost?
Patching into the top row doesn't break the normal but patching into the bottom row does. This describes a __________ connection.
The dynamic range of CD audio is 96 dB. The dynamic range of a 24 but digital recording is?
First reflections come after?
The initial sound
Non-linear reverb is very similar to?
Phaser FX is very similar to?
When mixing in 5.1 surround __________ busses are needed to deliver the mix.
Low open E on the 4th string of a bass guitar is ____________ Hz.
The total number of paths to the stereo buss when mixing on the Trident 88 32 channel console is?
Mid Side or M/S compression scheme allows you to?
Compress the center of a stereo mix without affecting the sides or visa versa
Professional line level is?
What signal path are the majority of the insert send and returns normalled across?
What input is the DAW output normalled to?
When using a buss compressor across our stereo buss we use the insert as opposed to the mix output patch because?
It's before the stereo buss fader
Gates and expanders?
Increase the dynamic range of a signal
You can have that same sound but at a lower volume by lowering the voltage to a tube amplifier using a?
A passive radiator is a driver?
Without the voice-cool or magnet
Automatic double tracking
The Bettermaker C502V compressor uses _______ circuits.
Which of the following speaker designs allows some distortion, much more than the other types?
The Studio Projects C4 is what type of microphone?
The Shure Sm81 is what type of microphone?
In Pro Tools on a Mac, what is the keyboard shortcut to "Cascade"?
In Studio B, what DAW outputs are normalled to the Hearback Cue System Inputs? What is that important to know?
DAW Outputs C 1-8. It is important because when you want to get a track in Pro Tools to be audible in the headphones, you just need to assign the output of a send to that track to one of the C outputs (no patch cable needed).
In Studio B, what patch is needed to be made to get the Talk Back mic into the Hearback system for headphones?
TB/Slate to HEARBACK Cue System Input #8 (or any number you choose)
