review and prep for final project
The most important sound element in a film is: dialogue
kHz refers to: frequency, pitch, or sample rate
The technical quality of a file of digital audio is determined by: sample rate and dynamic bit depth
The sample rate for audio on music CD is: 44kHz
ADR stands for: automatic dialogue recording, the process of looping dialogue to visual footage
Foley sounds are: studio recorded sound effects done to picture
When layering sound effects to create a new sound, what kinds of effects will blend best together? sounds of different frequency ranges
Source music is: music heard in a movie that is coming from something on screen, i.e. the radio or a live band
The term “cue” refers to: a "spotted" moment in the footage that requires a sound or piece of music
You are the sound recordist on a film that is shooting a scene in a cathedral. The director tells you that he wants the dialogue lines to be recorded with the reverberation of the space. As a responsible sound person, what do you tell the director?
The meters representing volume in Pro Tools hitting red means: the signal is peaking or going beyond the input's abillity to capture the sound
The three basic types of sound in order of importance are: dialogue, sound effects, and music
Why might you need to record music for animation before the animation was drawn? to establish character movement for the animation
What is meant by the term "dynamics"? the range between the loudest and the softest parts of a sound track
Discuss how the sound and/or score is used for dramatic impact.

3. Other parameters included in plugins can be assigned to automation from the plug-in window.
4. From the plug-in control window, select AUTO.
5. From the Plug-in Automation window, select parmeters to be automated.
6. Parameters will then show up from the automation pull down
and can be edited in the channel editor.
