what are the three different types of mic's?
condenser, dynamic, ribbon
1 of 27
what is a transducer?
turns one energy into another. for mics: sound to electronic
2 of 27
whats do all mics have? what happens to it when sound hits it?
diaphram, it vibrates
3 of 27
what are the characteristics of dynamic mics?
cheap, strong, can handle loud levels of sound, slow reacting because its heavy duty, slow reacting to high frequencies.
4 of 27
what are the characteristics of condenser mic's?
2 diaphrams charged with energy, needs charging, delicate, flat frequency, pick up sounds evenly, good for high frequencies, quick reacting, expensive.
5 of 27
characteristics of ribbon mic's?
think diaphragm, very fragile, dont like loud stuff, expensive. need no external power, aluminium diaphram, flat frequency, weak output.
6 of 27
picks up sound from all areas, good for loud orchestras and chat shows.
7 of 27
picks up sound from front and back not sides. good for duets.
8 of 27
one direction, only front

what can diaphrams be made from? where does it live in mic?
metals or paper, head of mic

with measures and beats. Reference what note by keyboard. Change length of note by changing length of bar.White and light grey lines represent black and white notes on keyboard.Able to move and change pitch of notes, move all together with

describe key editor 3
Turn snap off with ‘j’. Snap automatic movement of note/bar.Every note has corresponding velocity value in controller window. Red notes louder, how hard you play the note depicts its colour.The cooler the colour = the lighter the velocit

describe controller lane 1
Able to change velocity to other things in velocity pull down menu at bottom of screen. Controller set up menu allows you to chose from a list of controllers and add it to velocity pull down menu.Modulation wheel is like mountains on track.

describe controler lane 2
Mountain is rolled all the way forward if mountain is at the top. Modulation makes sound brighter.0 bottom of modulation, 27 top.

describe midi
Not to do with music.Musical instrument digital interface. To get musical digital stuff to talk .You can use it to record sounds, to pass on info.Can carry up to 16 channels of info, each can be routed to a different device.Is a tec

desribe midi 2
Is a technical standard that describes a protocol, digital interface and connectors and allows a wide variety of electronic musical instruments, computers and other related devices to connect and communicate with one another.

describe midi 3
carries event messages that specify notation, pitch and velocity, control signals for parameters such as volume, vibrato, audio panning, cues, and clock signals that set and synchronize tempo between multiple devices
21 of 27
describe midi 4
This data can also be recorded into a hardware or software device called a sequencer, which can be used to edit the data and to play it back at a later time • . These messages are sent to other devices where they control sound generation and other f

what does midi do?
All about instructions. • Controller • Are other controllers • Midi out to midi in.
23 of 27
how does midi work? 1
Goes through cable as numbers. • Information is data. • Not just what note but how hard. How loud. • When you’re pressing keys you’re actually sending information.

how does midi work 2
The standard allowed different instruments to speak with each other and with computers, and this spurred a rapid expansion of the sales and production of electronic instruments and music software. This intercompatibility allowed one device to be cont

how to choose a microphone?
Directionality – omni (all directions), uni (1 direction), bi (two directions). • Frequency response • Impedance – LOW • Noise • Sensitivity • Over load characteristics
26 of 27
describe frequency response?
Refers to the way mic responds to different frequencies – the sounds we hear. (20-20000 hz) • Frequency response refers to the way a microphone responds to different frequencies. It is a characteristic of all microphones that some frequencies are ex
