When should you apply compression to a signal?
Everything should be compressed.
When the dynamic range is irregular and quiet parts are dwarfed by loud parts.
When the levels are too hot.
Only on your master channel.
Why do engineers traditionally think less of Live's mix engine?
Perceived poor sound quality caused by user error.
It is not loud enough.
The summing engine is demonstrably inferior.
Usually due to incorrect warp mode deployment.
Which Utility feature reduces perceived width of a signals low end?
DC offset removal
What is the fourth dimension of audio?
Which is a common buss processing effect?
Why is it a good idea to have a limiter on your master buss?
To prevent accidental unwanted peaks and protect your ears and equipment.
To compensate for poorly mixed material.
To get a wider dynamic range.
To improve the frequency response.
What is the easiest way to buss tracks in Live?
You can't do this in Live
Via the In/Out routing matrix
Using Send and Returns
What does RTA stand for?
Random Transient Attack
Real Time Analysis
Random Time Analysis
Real Time Amplitude
What is the easiest way to configure parallel compression in Live?
Via the Compressor or Glue Compressor's Dry/Wet dial.
By grouping tracks to a buss.
By configuring a send and return.
By setting up an audio effect rack with multiple chains.
Which frequencies can be panned left and right most freely?
The low mids.
Around 1 kHz.
The low end.
The highest frequencies.
Which Saturator mode offers subtle harmonic inflation?
Which Gate parameter determines the level below which noise is removed?
You should never boost EQ bands because EQ8 has no output gain compensation parameter. True or false?
Why should you try to keep all meters green?
To avoid unwanted distortion and clipping.
To improve dynamic range.
To avoid phasing issues.
Because it's easier on the eyes.
What's a good amount of headroom to aim for with just kick and bass in the mix?
What is the benefit of multiband sidechaining with an audio effect rack?
Multiband processing is simply always better as a rule.
It's good practice for other types of multiband processing.
Only the specified competing frequencies are ducked.
It's easier than normal sidechaining.
Mixing should only be done by a certified mixing engineer. True or false?
Dithering should always be applied on Export. True or false?
What are the three modes offered by EQ8?
Mono, Stereo, M/S
