Audio P. Console

Audio Production Console Test

A form of severe audio distortion that results from peaks of the audio signal attempting to rise above the capabilities of the amplifier circuit. Clipping
Refers to the measurement of the level of an audio signal as compared to the level of noise that is present in that signal Signal to Noise Ratio
Compensates for frequency discrepancies in the signal Equalization
Shelving, Graphic, and Parametric Three main types of EQ
ctave, 1/2 Octave and 1/3 octave varieties,Separate boost/cut adjustment (usually a slide pot) for each band, Display of slide pots in a row shows a "graphic" picture of EQ GRAPHIC EQ
Separate adjustment of Boost/Cut, Center Frequency, and Q (sharpness of peak/dip) PARAMETRIC EQ
Found in most mixers (including Ramsa and Mackie), "Bass" (LF) and "Treble" (HF) controls boost or cut beginning at a certain point ("knee"),Sometimes midrange (MF) is included, and sometimes with adjustable midpoint frequency SHELVING EQ
An insert is an access point built into the console, allowing the user to add external devices into a channel’s signal flow between the preamp and the mix bus, Inserts can be used as an alternate way to route signals such as to a multitrack recorder Inserts
used to route signals from an input strip to effects units or to create cue mixes Aux Sends
determines each input strip’s bus output level Fader
determines signal’s bus assignments or left/right placement in stereo field Pan Pot
when pressed, monitor outputs for all other channels are muted Solo
when pressed, selected channel is cut from the monitor outputs Mute
The pathway along which an electrical signal flows. Bus
instrument with multiple mics (or group of instruments) needs to be recorded onto a single track Grouping
Allows overall levels of an output bus or individual group bus levels to be trimmed Master Fader
necessary in the control room to hear a balanced “mix” Monitoring
Newer consoles (since the 70s) have additional small fader sections used to directly feed the recorded signal that’s being fed to either the multi-track recorder or the monitor mixer Input Monitoring
Uses the direct out/insert sends of each input strip to feed the multi- track recorder Direct Insertion Monitoring
Input, bus outputs and other level points of a console often use a meter to display the signal’s strength Metering
Optimizing levels as they pass from one “functional block” of an input strip or outboard device to the next Gain Structure
Centralized I/O access to recording, effects or monitoring devices w/in a facility Patch Bay
When no plugs are inserted, I/O is electrically connected Normalled
When a cable is inserted into the top jack (output), the electrical connection is still intact; Inserting a plug in the bottom front panel jack breaks the connection between the top and bottom circuits Half-Normalled
When a plug is inserted into either the top or bottom jack, the in/out connection will still be intact Parallel
