What are the two I/O module on a modern in-line console?
The channel path & the monitor path.
What is the channel path also known as?
Input Path
What is the monitor path commonly refered to?
Mix Path; mix B
What is the main signal path on the module?
The Channel Path
What does the Channel Path do?
It is used to bring signals into the console, adjusts levels and tone quality, and then assign them to a destination.

What is the main signal path on the module?
The Channel Path
What does the Channel Path do?
It is used to bring signals into the console, adjusts levels and tone quality, and then assign them to a destination.
What is an example of destination?
Multitrack Recorders/ main stereo output
What is a I/O module's secondary path?
The Monitor Path
What is the monitor path commonly used in?
Most commonly used in recording situations, where it's used to listen to, or "monitor" the signals on the multitrack recorder.
What do professional analog recorders store their information on?
On magnetic tape that is 2'' inches in width.
How many tracks can a 2'' magnetic tape store?
16, 24, or 32 tracks of information.
What is the standard number of track location a 2'' magnetic tape utlizes?
24 tracks
What track offer the highest sound quality and the lowest noise?
16- track
What track offers more sounds to be stored on a piece of tape?
32-tracks
What is a tape head used for?
To transfer information to and from the magnetic tape.
What is a head gap?
It's an open portion of the electromagnetic structure found at the end of the horseshoe shped band of metal.
What does the the head gap corresponds to?
Our audio signal.
What has an effect on sound quality?
The speed in which the tape passes across the head.
What are the standard tape speeds?
30 IPS (inches per second) and 15 IPS.
Which tape speed offers the better sound quality with less noise?
30 IPS
What is the con of 30 IPS tape?
It requires more tape than the 15, which is more costly.
True or False: The electromagnetic assembly in the tape head can perform more than one task at a time.
False.
Where does each head gap on the tape head store its information?
In a linear stripe down the length of tape.
What is the linear stripe of information stored in the tape referred to as?
A track.
How many heads does a professional tape head have? Name them.
Three: erase head, sync head, repro head.
What is the erase head used for?
It is used to erase prviously recorded material from the tape. It is always first in the tape path; it is not active when the tracks are playing back.
How does the erase head do its job?
By recording the high frequency tone on the tape (typically 150 KHz or high- at a very high amplitude).
What is the sync head used for?
It is second on the tape path. It is capable of both recording and playing back.
What is the syc head primarily used for?
Our recording head,
Which tape speed offers the better sound quality with less noise?
30 IPS
What is the con of 30 IPS tape?
It requires more tape than the 15, which is more costly.
True or False: The electromagnetic assembly in the tape head can perform more than one task at a time.
False.

What is the sync head used for?
It is second on the tape path. It is capable of both recording and playing back.
What is the syc head primarily used for?
Our recording head,
What is the repro had designed for?
It is designed for playback (and is not capable of recording). The repro head is configured for the highest quality playback.
What is DASH?
Digital Audio Stationary Head is a multitack machine. It is similar to the analog recorder, except they store digital audio on the tape rather than analog.
Name two common DASH machines?
Sony PCM series and the Studer D-827series, both built on 24 track and 48 track versions.
What type of tape do the Sony PCM and the Studer D-827?
They both use a 1/2 inch of high-density magnetic tape.
What features do DASH machines provide?
Extensive memory, sampling, looping, and editing fuctions within the recorder itself, features not commonly found on any other type of tape-based multitrack recorder.
