### Multiple Choice :  Which component will create a variable sine wave?

• A.

Sine Generator

• B.

Pink Noise Generator

• C.

Cosine Generator

• D.

Variable Frequency Generator

A. Sine Generator
Explanation
The Sine Generator is the component that will create a variable sine wave. The other options mentioned, Pink Noise Generator, Cosine Generator, and Variable Frequency Generator, do not specifically generate a sine wave.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### Multiple Choice :  What does the Sine Generator component do?

• A.

Creates a sine wave of variable frequency

• B.

Translates an audio signal into a visual frequency graph

• C.

Normalizes the peaks of an audio signal to a customizable level

• D.

Propagates the gain of an audio signal to a customizable sine wave

A. Creates a sine wave of variable frequency
Explanation
The Sine Generator component is designed to create a sine wave with a variable frequency. This means that it can generate a sine wave at different frequencies, allowing for flexibility in producing different tones or signals. This explanation is supported by the fact that the other options do not mention frequency generation, but instead focus on translating audio signals, normalizing peaks, or propagating gain.

### Multiple Choice :  What does RTA stand for?

• A.

Real-Time Analyzer

• B.

Range/Transition Analyzer

• C.

Rapid Tuning Assistant

• D.

Realistic Time Alternator

A. Real-Time Analyzer
Explanation
RTA stands for Real-Time Analyzer. This term refers to a device or software that is used to analyze and measure audio signals in real-time. It is commonly used in audio engineering and music production to monitor and adjust the frequency and amplitude of audio signals. The other options provided, Range/Transition Analyzer, Rapid Tuning Assistant, and Realistic Time Alternator, are not commonly used terms in the field of audio analysis and do not accurately represent the meaning of RTA.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Multiple Choice : In the RTA Control Panel, what does the Max Hold Time knob adjust?

• A.

The length of time that a maximum magnitude is displayed before refreshing

• B.

The frequency of a signal required to be kept on Infinite Hold

• C.

The maximum length of a signal to be considered as an invalid audio source

• D.

The longest allowable portion of an audio signal to be analyzed

A. The length of time that a maximum magnitude is displayed before refreshing
Explanation
The Max Hold Time knob in the RTA Control Panel adjusts the length of time that a maximum magnitude is displayed before refreshing. This means that it determines how long the highest level of a signal will be shown on the display before it is updated with new data.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Multiple Choice :  In the RTA Control Panel, which button should you push if you wish to keep the highest detected signal magnitude to remain displayed until a higher signal is detected?

• A.

Infinite Hold

• B.

Indefinite Hold

• C.

Max RMS

• D.

Magnitude Hold

A. Infinite Hold
Explanation
In the RTA Control Panel, pushing the "Infinite Hold" button will keep the highest detected signal magnitude displayed until a higher signal is detected. This means that even if a higher signal is detected, the display will not update and continue to show the highest magnitude. This feature is useful when you want to monitor and track the highest signal level over a period of time without it being overwritten by lower signals.

• 7.

### Multiple Choice :  Which tools should you use to “hack” into your signal path to test its integrity?

• A.

Signal Injector and Signal Probe

• B.

Signal Insertion and Signal Analyzer

• C.

Signal Input and Signal Output

• D.

RTA and Responsalyzer

A. Signal Injector and Signal Probe
Explanation
Signal Injector and Signal Probe are the correct tools to use to "hack" into your signal path to test its integrity. A signal injector is used to inject a signal into the path, while a signal probe is used to measure the signal at various points in the path. By using these tools together, you can analyze the signal and identify any issues or anomalies in the path, ensuring its integrity.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Multiple Choice :  How do you connect a Signal Injector or Signal Probe to your audio path?

• A.

Drag the diagonal Injector or Probe tool onto any input or output pin

• B.

Unwire the target component from your design and wire it to the Injector or Probe component

• C.

Drag the diagonal Injector or Probe tool into the control panel of the target component

• D.

Drag the target component from your design and drop it onto the Injector or Probe component

A. Drag the diagonal Injector or Probe tool onto any input or output pin
Explanation
To connect a Signal Injector or Signal Probe to your audio path, you need to drag the diagonal Injector or Probe tool onto any input or output pin. This action establishes a connection between the tool and the audio path, allowing you to inject or probe signals.

• 9.

### Check ALL that apply : Which of the following statements are true about the Signal Injector?

• A.

The Signal Injector overrides any other audio signal at the point of insertion.

• B.

The Signal Injector only works properly with a White Noise Generator.

• C.

The Signal Injector must be wired to some audio source in order for it to inject an audio signal.

• D.

The Signal Injector must be running on a Core in order to operate properly.

A. The Signal Injector overrides any other audio signal at the point of insertion.
C. The Signal Injector must be wired to some audio source in order for it to inject an audio signal.
D. The Signal Injector must be running on a Core in order to operate properly.
Explanation
The Signal Injector overrides any other audio signal at the point of insertion because it is designed to take precedence over other audio signals. It must be wired to an audio source in order to inject an audio signal, as it needs an input source to work with. Additionally, the Signal Injector must be running on a Core to operate properly, indicating that it requires a specific platform or system to function correctly.

### Multiple Choice :  What is the Hover Monitor?

• A.

A miniature RMS meter found by hovering the mouse over any audio input or output pin

• B.

A measurement component that you can dock to the top of the Schematic

• C.

A component that you can hold over an audio signal to detect the signal strength

• D.

A miniature clone of your computer screen that you can export to the UCI

A. A miniature RMS meter found by hovering the mouse over any audio input or output pin
Explanation
The Hover Monitor is a miniature RMS meter that can be found by hovering the mouse over any audio input or output pin. It allows users to quickly and easily monitor the signal strength of audio inputs or outputs without the need for additional tools or components.

• 11.

### Multiple Choice : How can you hear the output of your Schematic design without using the sound system you are connected to?

• A.

Unmute any Hover Monitor to broadcast the signal over your computer speakers

• B.

Wire a Signal Broadcast component into your Schematic and select “Onboard” as the output

• C.

Simply turn on your speakers – the Q-Sys Designer automatically plays all signals it is processing

• D.

There is no way to listen to the audio design without connecting to an amplifier

A. Unmute any Hover Monitor to broadcast the signal over your computer speakers
Explanation
By unmuting any Hover Monitor, the signal from the Schematic design will be broadcasted over the computer speakers. This allows the user to hear the output without using the sound system they are connected to.
