Mastering most commonly involves...
reverb, echo & saturation
pitch & time shifting
EQ, compression, and limiting
A Brickwall limiter...
should be used on every track in a mix
sets an absolute maximum signal level
sharply attenuates everything above a certain frequency
A high-frequency shelving EQ band (shelf)...
boosts or cuts all frequencies around a center frequency
boosts or cuts all frequencies below a corner frequency
boosts or cuts all frequencies above a corner frequency
Filter resonance is...
a deep notch within a narrow frequency range
a narrow boost just before the cutoff frequency
a wide boost centered at around 1 kHz
Bi-amped studio monitors...
have separate amps for the left & right speakers
have separate amps for the woofer & tweeter
use a single mono amp for both speakers
A FET compressor...
usually has a fast, aggressive response characteristic
uses a special tube with variable bias
usually has a very slow, subtle response characteristic
Some widely-used types of transistors are...
step-up & step-down transistors
silicon, FET, and germanium transistors
triode & pentode transistors
ADT stands for...
Audio Dynamic Threshold
Active Dynamic Tracking
A variable-mu compressor...
uses a special tube with variable bias in the detection circuit
utilizes a particular transistor in the detection circuit
uses a photoresistor in the detection circuit
increases dynamic range
speeds up recorded audio without changing the pitch
reduces dynamic range
A 4-pole filter has a slope of...
Tape Saturation adds...
subtle distortion and compression
a subtle reverb-like effect
a doubling effect in large amounts
Mic preamps all provide...
onboard EQ & delay-based effects
enough gain for line-level devices
gain & the correct impedance for microphones
Where is a brickwall limiter usually set when mastering?
Delay times for Flanging are typically...
over 30 milliseconds
over 50 milliseconds
under 10 milliseconds
A noise gate...
removes bakground sound (like leakage) present at the same time as the main part
removes bakground sound (like leakage) inbetween words & phrases
attenuates pitchy notes in a vocal track
Digital distortion plug-ins usualy include...
digital clipping, quantization distortion, & aliasing
pitch-shifting and LFO modulation
distorted echoes & an edgy flanging effect
Delay-based echo effects...
utilize delay times within the Haas Eeffect's Fusion Zone
utilize delay times above 30-50 milliseconds
utilize delay times below 30-50 milliseconds
A classic example of an opto compressor is...
the Teletronix LA-2A
the dbx 160
the Urei 1176
The three controls for each band of a parametric EQ are...
gain, boost, & cut
lowpass highpass, & notch
gain, center frequency, & Q
increases gradually as levels approach maximum
is usually less harsh than analog clipping
is usually harsher than analog clipping
Dynamics processing includes...
modulation & feedback
parametric processing & octave-band processing
compression/limiting & expansion/gating
The main function of Audio Repair software is...
to quantizes the timing of drums within a stereo mix
to auto-correct the pitch of vocals within a stereo mix
to fix common audio problems like background noise, leakage, & clipped audio
usually adds significant latency
is never appropriate for mastering
is a zero-latency effect
An IR is...
an Impulse Response, the real room sample used in a convolution reverb
an Internal Reverb, a reverb effect built in to a DAW
an Infinite Reverb, a type of special-effect reverb plug-in
