AE-2 Summer'12 Final Exam
The MIC Sheet
You must type and print your comments as well as email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be easiest to download all of the samples, which are 24-bit
wav files, import them into a session so you can loop each set.
To Download, either click the alt (right?) mouse button or CTRL-click
on each file and save them to a folder.
For all acoustic and electric instruments...
I made five folders: Your document should have five headings.
Please describe the sound of each mic in detail.
This is your direct link to the contents of each folder
Listening Test-1: Piano
Listening Test-2: Accoustic Guitar
Listening Test-3: Bass
Listening Test-4: Cello
Listening Test-5: Electric Guitar
Bonus Exercise For the Electric Guitar...
Open the four guitar files in Protools (or any DAW with sample delay plug-in)
Determine how many samples it takes to delay the Near Fathead Mic so that
is can null with the Close Fathead Mic.
Toggle Polarity (phase reverse) to confirm you got the best null - the
null is 'best' when it is dark (minimal treble). The signal will
not disappear entirely.
Copy the delay to all of the close mics
Listen to each mic pair: the SM-57 and D-6, for example. The levels should
match up pretty well. Toggle the polarity and writre about the difference.
