    In the tempo ruler, which display is tick-based?

    • A.

      Tempo events

    • B.

      Bar|Beat Markers

    • C.

      Memory Locations

    • D.

      Meter

    Correct Answer
    A. Tempo events
    Explanation
    Tempo events are the display in the tempo ruler that is tick-based. Tempo events represent changes in the tempo of the music at specific points in time. They are typically indicated by vertical lines and are used to control the playback speed of the music. By adding or modifying tempo events, the tempo of the music can be adjusted to create different musical effects or changes in the overall rhythm.

    Tempo events and bar|beat markers can be used simultaneously. (True or False)

    Correct Answer
    False
    false
    Explanation
    Tempo events and bar|beat markers cannot be used simultaneously because they serve different purposes in music production. Tempo events are used to change the tempo or speed of the music at specific points, while bar|beat markers are used to indicate the structure and timing of the music in terms of bars and beats. Using them simultaneously would create conflicts and confusion in the music arrangement. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Bar|Beat markers are_______?

    • A.

      Tick-Based

    • B.

      Sample-Based

    • C.

      Audio-Based

    • D.

      MIDI-Based

    Correct Answer
    B. Sample-Based
    Explanation
    Bar|Beat markers are sample-based. This means that they are aligned with specific points in an audio sample or recording. Bar|Beat markers are often used in music production and editing to accurately locate and sync different elements of a song or track. By using sample-based markers, producers can easily manipulate and edit the timing and arrangement of the audio, ensuring that everything is in sync and aligned with the desired rhythm and structure of the music.

    • A.

      Scale Sides in a linear speed up or slow down form

    • B.

      Scale All events up or down

    • C.

    • D.

      All of these above

    • E.

      None of these above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of these above
    Explanation
    The trim tool in the tempo editor can be used in multiple ways to adjust a range of tempo events. Firstly, it can be used to scale the sides of the events in a linear speed up or slow down form. Secondly, it can be used to scale all events up or down. Lastly, it can be used to stretch events to cover a longer or shorter area. Therefore, all of these options are correct ways to use the trim tool in the tempo editor.

    In Linear Sample Display Mode, tick-based tracks are constant, so that the length of each measure is displayed consistently regardless of tempo. (True or False)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In Linear Sample Display Mode, tick-based tracks are not constant. The length of each measure is displayed based on the tempo, meaning that the measure length can vary depending on the tempo. Therefore, the statement that tick-based tracks are constant in Linear Sample Display Mode is false.

    Linear Tick Display Mode is Pro Tools default display mode. In this mode, tempo changes effect the display of tick-based tracks-when the tempo increases, tick-based material compacts on screen providing a visual indication that the material will play back faster; when tempo decreases, the same material stretches out on screen, indicating that it will play back more slowly. (True or False)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In Pro Tools, the Linear Tick Display Mode is not the default display mode. In this mode, tempo changes do not affect the display of tick-based tracks. The material remains the same size on the screen regardless of the tempo changes. Therefore, the statement that tempo changes in Linear Tick Display Mode cause tick-based material to compact or stretch out on the screen is false.
