EchoBoy's Style Edit "Wobble" parameter:
simulates the stuttering effect you'd get from fast feedback repeats
simulates the effect of speed/pitch variations of a tape-based echo device
is useful to get a Wobble dubstep sound
simulates a musical performance with poor timing
PanMan's Tweak settings vary depending on the type of Modulation in use. True or false?
Which statement(s) is(are) true?
Most of the effects in the Soundtoys 5 collection have a bare minimum set of controls, to promote ease of use
All statements are true
The Soundtoys 5 collection is a great-sounding bundle of preset-only effects
Most of the effects in the Soundtoys 5 collection can be tweaked and customized to a great degree
Phasing produces its characteristic comb-filtered effect by...
modulating a very short Delay (of a few milliseconds)
modulating the Frequency of a series of All-Pass filters
modulating a medium Delay (of 10-15 milliseconds)
In addition to modulating Cutoff Frequency, FilterFreak can also modulate:
Saturation and Slope
Resonance and Slope
Resonance and Level
MicroShift's widening effect is created by slap echo and phase (polarity) reversal of one channel. True or false?
Radiator's analog saturation emulation is based on:
the MXR distortion + pedal
the Neve 1073 preamp/EQ
the Teletronix LA-2A optical compressor
the Altec 1567A tube mixer/amp
FilterFreak includes the following options for Slope:
2-Pole and 6-Pole designs
1-Pole, 2-Pole, 3-Pole, and 4-Pole designs
2-Pole, 4-Pole, 6-Pole, and 8-Pole designs
2-Pole and 4-Pole designs
Tremolator can also emulate Ring Modulation, which...
creates clangorous sideband frequencies via modulation Rates above 20 Hz
creates a slow, circular (ring-like) panning effect
creates a fast change in level
creates a smooth, mellow sound, like a gently pealing bell
What are the two primary types of processing available in Devil-Loc Deluxe's?
delay and distortion
Reverb and delay
compression and delay
compression (limiting) and distortion
Which of the following statement is false?
Crystallizer procesess audio by pitch-shifting audio
Crystallizer procesess audio by distorting the audio
Crystallizer procesess audio by creating feedback effects
Crystallizer procesess audio by slicing up the audio
What happens if Crystallizer is set for an upward pitch shift?
feedback repeats will rise in pitch and distort with each repeat
feedback repeats will maintain a steady pitch
feedback repeats will rise in pitch
feedback repeats will fall in pitch
Little AlterBoy provides Formant manipulation—Formants are:
the natural echoes that occur in small rooms and chambers
the transient peaks that make up the attacks of percussive sounds
the quality of a sound governed by the rate of vibrations producing it
the characteristic resonances of the human voice
PrimalTap's Multiply knob:
is really a Feedback control, which dials up multiple repeats
increases bandwidth with higher-sample rates for a hi-res sound
decreases bandwidth with lower-sample rates for a bit-crushed effect
extends delay time by lowering the sample rate, but with a lo-fi sound quality
Crystallizer's Gate/Duck function is provided to:
make Crystallizer suitable for voiceover work
remove background noise from the audio before processing
create a pumping side-chain effect
put the effect under the control of incoming audio level
Decapitator models the following 5 circuits:
Bitcrusher, Lo-Fi, digital clipper, Aliaser, 8-bit distortion
Ampex preamp, TG & Neve console strips, Triode & Pentode tubes
Ampex preamp, Bitcrusher, Lo-Fi, Dual-Rectifier, 8-bit distortion
Fender Bassman & Deluxe, Marshall Plexi, Vox AC30, Dual-Rectifier
How can you simulate a typical classic guitar amp tone with Decapitator?
You cannot simulate a classic guitar amp tone with Decapitator
You'd want to engage the "Steep" high cut filter, to tame overly "fizzy" distortion
You'd want Low & High Cut @ max, & Tone at minimum
You'd want to employ only the emulations of transistor circuits (E, N)
In Decapitator, where are the Low Cut, High Cut, and Tone controls placed?
After the saturation/distortion circuit
Both before the saturation circuit (High Cut, Tone) and after (Low Cut)
Before the saturation/distortion circuit
Both before the saturation circuit (Low Cut, Tone) and after (High Cut)
EchoBoy's Rhythmic Echo mode is a multi-tap mode with up to 16 user-adjustable taps. True or false?
In addition to modulating Frequency, PhaseMistress can also modulate Resonance and L/R Offset (for intensifying stereo effect). True or false?
Tremolator creates a Tremolo effect, which is Frequency Modulation—periodic (or rhythmic) change in pitch. True or false?
PhaseMistress provides options for the number of "Stages":
from 2 Stages to 12 Stages, like most hardware Phasers
from 2 Stages to 24 Stages (with 2–12 having the widest tonal range)
only odd-numbered Stages, from 1 to 23
only even-numbered Stages, from 2 to 24
In the Soundtoys Effect Rack up to 6 Soundtoys processors can be chained together. True or false?
PrimalTap's Freeze feature captures a section of audio and loops it. True or false?
FilterFreak's modulation options include:
Envelope Follower and ADSR
LFO and Rhythm (syncable to Tempo)
All answers are correct
Random SH (Sample & Hold) and Random Step
