Natural Sound is defined as?
Ambient or sound naturally occurring
at a location.
What is the function of a microphone?
A mic whose sound pickup device consists of a diaphragm that is attached to
a movable coil. As the diaphragm vibrates with the air pressure from the sound,the coil moves within a magnetic field, generating an electric current.Dynamic microphones work via electromagnetic induction.
They are robust, relatively inexpensive and resistant to moisture.
This, coupled with their potentially high gain before feedback, makes
them ideal for on-stage use.
A mic whose diaphragm consists of a condenser plate that vibrateswith thesound pressure against another fixed condenser plate.Also called an electret or capacitor microphone.
A mic whose sound pickup device consists of a ribbon that vibrates withthe sound pressure within a magnetic field. This is the most fragile andthus, the most sensitive of all microphones.
What is the most common microphone pickup pattern?
Cardioid means "heart-shaped", from the Greek root word "cardi". A cardioid pickup pattern means pickup to the front of the microphone, and to a lesser extent the sides, with good rejection of sound to the back of the microphone.
If you only had one microphone to use for a round table discussion, which pick-up pattern would you use?
(All Directional) An omnidirectional microphone picks up sound equally 360 degrees around the microphone capsule.
What microphone would be best at picking up audio in two different directions?
Bi-Directional- Sound coming from two directions.
What type of pick-up pattern would you use to pick up sounds better from the front than from the sides or back?
Unidirectional- Pickup pattern in which the microphone can pick up sounds better from the front than from the sides or back.
Most camera have a built in microphone which contains what type up pick-up pattern?
** These microphones have a hyper-cardioid microphone. This is similar to cardioid but with a tighter area of front
sensitivity and a smaller lobe of rear sensitivity.
Name the microphone that can be pinned onto your talent during an interview?
Talk normally when wearing this.
Name the type of microphone

What is the purpose of the “pop filter”?

What is a wind sock?
A wind screen made from synthetic material and resemblesmore a mop than a wind screen.
What are the functions of an audio mixer?

What type of cable carries the highest quality digital audio and video signals?
What does the mic/line inputs do
on an audio mixer?

microphone or an audio output
from a source such as a VCR or
other audio recorder.
What is the purpose of
Sound-volume control that
works by sliding a button
along a specific scale.
What device on an audio
mixer measures the relative
loudness volume units
Name the button on an audio mixer that is used to
control the signal strength of the mixed output
from an audio mixer?
Master fader (red button)
What is the line out on an audio mixer do?
The final mixed and quality-processed
Signal that is sent from the audio mixer.
