After the saturation/distortion circuit
Both before the saturation circuit (High Cut, Tone) and after (Low Cut)
What are Little AlterBoy's three modes?
Chipmunk, Darth Vador, and Cylon
Pitch Shift, Delay, and Quantize

PhaseMistress provides options for the number of "Stages":
from 2 Stages to 24 Stages (with 2–12 having the widest tonal range)
only odd-numbered Stages, from 1 to 23
only even-numbered Stages, from 2 to 24
from 2 Stages to 12 Stages, like most hardware Phasers
FilterFreak includes the following options for Slope:
2-Pole and 6-Pole designs
1-Pole, 2-Pole, 3-Pole, and 4-Pole designs
2-Pole and 4-Pole designs
2-Pole, 4-Pole, 6-Pole, and 8-Pole designs
Phasing produces its characteristic comb-filtered effect by...
modulating a medium Delay (of 10-15 milliseconds)
modulating the Frequency of a series of All-Pass filters
modulating a very short Delay (of a few milliseconds)
EchoBoy can provide the following delay-based effects
Flanging, Chorusing, Doubling and Slap Echo and Repeat/Rhythmic Echo
Flanging and Chorusing
Chorusing and Doubling
Slap Echo and Repeat/Rhythmic Echo
Crystallizer's Gate/Duck function is provided to:
remove background noise from the audio before processing
put the effect under the control of incoming audio level
create a pumping side-chain effect
make Crystallizer suitable for voiceover work
PanMan's Auto-Pannning effects are controlled by...
a single free-running LFO
Tempo-all Auto-Pannng effects are always sync'd to session Tempo
6 modulation types, including LFO, Rhythmic & Random options, & Ping-Pong
Soundtoys 5 plug-ins are available:
as 32 & 64 bit, in all plug-in formats: VST, AU, and AAX
as 64-bit only
as 32-bit only, currently

Little AlterBoy provides Formant manipulation-Formants are:
the quality of a sound governed by the rate of vibrations producing it
the natural echoes that occur in small rooms and chambers
the transient peaks that make up the attacks of percussive sounds
the characteristic resonances of the human voice
What are the two primary types of processing available in Devil-Loc Deluxe's?
compression and delay
Reverb and delay
delay and distortion
compression (limiting) and distortion
PrimalTap's Multiply knob:
extends delay time by lowering the sample rate, but with a lo-fi sound quality
increases bandwidth with higher-sample rates for a hi-res sound
is really a Feedback control, which dials up multiple repeats
decreases bandwidth with lower-sample rates for a bit-crushed effect
Which of the following statement is true?
EchoBoy's "Styles" mimic the sound quality of various electronic & mechanical delay/echo devices
EchoBoy's "Styles" are presets to add groove and swing to the delayed signal
EchoBoy's "Styles" are presets which cannot be changed or edited
EchoBoy's "Styles" are each tied to one particular type of delay or echo effect only
In most Soundtoys 5 plug-ins, extra settings can be found in:
the front panel only-there are no other windows
the preferences tab
a scripting window, that lets users add their own controls
additional "Tweak" panels
Which statement(s) is(are) true?
The Soundtoys 5 collection is a great-sounding bundle of preset-only effects
Most of the effects in the Soundtoys 5 collection have a bare minimum set of controls, to promote ease of use
Most of the effects in the Soundtoys 5 collection can be tweaked and customized to a great degree
All statements are true
Tremolator creates a Tremolo effect, which is Frequency Modulation-periodic (or rhythmic) change in pitch. True or false?
PrimalTap's Freeze feature captures a section of audio and loops it. True or false?
MicroShift is based on which two classic digital processors?

How can you simulate a typical classic guitar amp tone with Decapitator?
You'd want to engage the "Steep" high cut filter, to tame overly "fizzy" distortion
You'd want Low & High Cut @ max, & Tone at minimum
You cannot simulate a classic guitar amp tone with Decapitator
You'd want to employ only the emulations of transistor circuits (E, N)
In addition to modulating Cutoff Frequency, FilterFreak can also modulate:
Saturation and Slope
Resonance and Level
Resonance and Slope
PanMan's Tweak settings vary depending on the type of Modulation in use. True or false?
What happens if Crystallizer is set for an upward pitch shift?
feedback repeats will maintain a steady pitch
feedback repeats will rise in pitch and distort with each repeat
feedback repeats will rise in pitch
feedback repeats will fall in pitch
In addition to modulating Frequency, PhaseMistress can also modulate Resonance and L/R Offset (for intensifying stereo effect). True or false?
Tremolator can also emulate Ring Modulation, which...
creates a smooth, mellow sound, like a gently pealing bell
creates a fast change in level
creates a slow, circular (ring-like) panning effect
creates clangorous sideband frequencies via modulation Rates above 20 Hz
Decapitator models the following 5 circuits:
Fender Bassman & Deluxe, Marshall Plexi, Vox AC30, Dual-Rectifier
