    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    __________ is a synchronization signal that contains timing pulses based on tempo.

    Correct Answer
    MIDI beat clock
    Explanation
    The MIDI beat clock is a synchronization signal that contains timing pulses based on tempo. It is used in MIDI systems to ensure that different devices and software applications are synchronized and playing in time with each other. The MIDI beat clock sends out regular pulses at a rate determined by the tempo of the music, allowing all devices to stay in sync and play together. This is especially important in situations where multiple MIDI devices or software applications are being used simultaneously, such as in a live performance or in a studio recording setup.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    MIDI Beat Clock pulses at the rate of __ pulses per quarter note. 

    Correct Answer
    24
    Explanation
    MIDI Beat Clock pulses at the rate of 24 pulses per quarter note. This means that for every quarter note played, there will be 24 pulses sent by the MIDI Beat Clock. These pulses are used to synchronize different MIDI devices and ensure that they are all playing in time with each other. By sending a consistent number of pulses per quarter note, the MIDI Beat Clock helps to maintain a steady tempo and rhythm throughout a musical performance.

  • 13. 

    Pro Tools Automation has a higher resolution and timing accuracy than MIDI CC data.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pro Tools Automation has a higher resolution and timing accuracy than MIDI CC data. This means that Pro Tools Automation allows for more precise control and manipulation of audio parameters, such as volume, panning, and effects, compared to MIDI CC data. MIDI CC data, on the other hand, is primarily used for controlling external devices or software instruments and may not offer the same level of precision as Pro Tools Automation. Therefore, the statement that Pro Tools Automation has a higher resolution and timing accuracy than MIDI CC data is true.

    There are several forms of __________ but they all serve the same purpose: to set a standard playback speed for multiple machines. 

    Correct Answer
    Clock References
    Explanation
    Clock references are used to synchronize the playback speed of multiple machines. This ensures that all machines are running at the same speed, allowing for smooth and coordinated playback. Different forms of clock references may exist, but their purpose remains the same. They provide a standard timing signal that keeps all machines in sync, which is particularly important in scenarios where precise timing is required, such as in audio or video production.

    ______ are used to impose tempo on the song, while Bar/Beat Markers  align the tempo ruler to a performance

    Correct Answer
    Tempo Events
    Explanation
    Tempo Events are used to impose tempo on the song, while Bar/Beat Markers align the tempo ruler to a performance. Tempo Events are specific points in the song where the tempo changes, allowing for variations in the speed of the music. These events can be used to create different moods or emphasize certain sections of the song. On the other hand, Bar/Beat Markers are used to align the tempo ruler with the performance, ensuring that the beats and measures are accurately represented in the recording. They help in organizing the music and making it easier to edit or add additional elements.

    Rate this question:

  • 43. 

    Tempo Events are used to impose tempo on the song, while ________ align the tempo ruler to a performance

    Correct Answer
    Bar/Beat Markers
    Explanation
    Tempo Events are used to impose tempo changes or variations on the song, such as speeding up or slowing down at specific points. On the other hand, Bar/Beat Markers are used to align the tempo ruler to a performance.

    Nothing in the session is affected when a session's Song Start marker is changed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When the Song Start marker is changed in a session, it affects the playback and arrangement of the session. The Song Start marker determines the point at which the session will begin playing, so changing its position will alter the starting point of the session. This means that any recorded tracks, automation, or other elements in the session that rely on the original Song Start marker will be affected and may not align correctly with the new starting point. Therefore, the statement that nothing in the session is affected when the Song Start marker is changed is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 47. 

    Changing a session's ____________ can change the locations of any existing bar/beat-based memory locations, as well as the locations of any tick-based track content.

    Correct Answer
    Song Start marker
    Explanation
    Changing a session's Song Start marker can change the locations of any existing bar/beat-based memory locations, as well as the locations of any tick-based track content. The Song Start marker serves as the reference point for the session, defining the starting point of the song. When the Song Start marker is moved, it affects the positioning of all other elements in the session that are dependent on the bar/beat or tick-based timing system. This includes memory locations, which are specific points in the song that can be recalled easily, and any track content that is aligned to the session's timing grid.

    Rate this question:

  • 48. 

    Changing the Song Start marker will affect sample-based track content.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Changing the Song Start marker will not affect sample-based track content. The Song Start marker is used to determine the starting point of the song, and it does not have any direct impact on the content of individual tracks, whether they are sample-based or not. The Song Start marker is mainly used for navigation and organization purposes within the software or device used for music production. Therefore, changing the Song Start marker will not have any effect on the actual content of the tracks themselves.
