A lowpass filter...
passes everything above a cutoff frequency
attenuates everything above a cutoff frequency
attenuates everything below a cutoff frequency
Some widely-used types of transistors are...
step-up & step-down transistors
silicon, FET, and germanium transistors
triode & pentode transistors
A Brickwall limiter...
sharply attenuates everything above a certain frequency
should be used on every track in a mix
sets an absolute maximum signal level
True Peak metering...
isolates the loudest frequency in a mix
shows the average signal level of a mix
estimates inter-sample peaks
Audio applications for transformers include...
converting analog signal to digital
converting Audio recordings to MIDI
changing volatge levels & matching impedances
Mic preamps all provide...
onboard EQ & delay-based effects
gain & the correct impedance for microphones
enough gain for line-level devices
In mixing distortion is...
never useful and should always be avoided
sometimes useful as a warming effect in small amounts
only useful in heavy metal and nu-metal musical genres
A Multiband compresor...
must be instantiated on several individual tracks, all linked together
is specifically intended for multitrack drum recordings
compresses different frequency ranges independently
Dynamics processing includes...
compression/limiting & expansion/gating
parametric processing & octave-band processing
modulation & feedback
A Phaser generates its effect via...
a specialized tube with variable bias
a series of all-pass filters
a delay of over 30 milliseconds
The three controls for each band of a parametric EQ are...
gain, boost, & cut
gain, center frequency, & Q
lowpass highpass, & notch
Another name for a tube is...
Digital distortion plug-ins usualy include...
distorted echoes & an edgy flanging effect
pitch-shifting and LFO modulation
digital clipping, quantization distortion, & aliasing
In a delay effect Modulation...
adds resonance to the signal
varies the manually-set delay time
increases the amount of feedback
A noise gate...
attenuates pitchy notes in a vocal track
removes bakground sound (like leakage) present at the same time as the main part
removes bakground sound (like leakage) inbetween words & phrases
When Threshold is crossed a soft-knee response...
applies more gain reduction to high frequencies
has an immediate onset of gain-reduction
has a gradual onset of gain-reduction
uses Fourier analysis to identify & isolate individual elements embedded in an audio recording
a dedicated reflective room
a mechanical device with tensioned springs
True or False: all compressors have Attack & Release controls.
The function of ducking is to...
remove excessive sibilance in a vocal track
attenuate the level of background music when a voiceover comes along
attenuate notes that fall outside the song's home key
Tape Saturation adds...
a subtle reverb-like effect
a doubling effect in large amounts
subtle distortion and compression
A high-frequency shelving EQ band (shelf)...
boosts or cuts all frequencies below a corner frequency
boosts or cuts all frequencies around a center frequency
boosts or cuts all frequencies above a corner frequency
An IR is...
an Infinite Reverb, a type of special-effect reverb plug-in
an Impulse Response, the real room sample used in a convolution reverb
an Internal Reverb, a reverb effect built in to a DAW
A Convolution reverb creates reverberation...
by recording (sampling) the sound of a real room
by accumulating digital delays
placing a speaker & mics in a dedicated empty room
Where is a brickwall limiter usually set when mastering?
corrects tempo variations above a user-specified bpm
auto-corrects pitches above & below a user-specified range
is a compressor with a Ratio of 10:1–20:1 or higher
