Do not forget "vocal tuning"!
Thanks for taking this on. The glossary was becoming the Buckingham Nicks of this forum.
Oh yeah. Good idea.
B.O.L.= Breath Of Life
3-D = Three dimensional sound
OK...I"ll ask. What's vocal tuning?
A device that changes the pitch of vocals during concerts, recording or in post production. Essentially, this device can correct errors made by a talented performer or make an untalented performer more in pitch [see Britney Spears].
Now I know. And knowing is half the battle!
I'm not up on the lingo. What's BIN stand for?
a few more glossary suggestions:
* remaster, remix (a lot of newbies, not to mention the general public, seem to confuse these two terms)
* the various terms related to preparing LPs (eg, lacquer, cutting, lathe). Actually, perhaps a time-line briefly describing each sequential step in the production of an LP (or a CD/SACD/DVD) would be useful.
On eBay, BIN = Buy it now (ie, purchasing an item outright for a set price as opposed to taking your chances on bidding)
Should we make a distinction between "limiter splatter" and "Beatles limiter splatter"?
Here's one I'm not clear on....."over-ripe".
I've heard Humorem use this term more than once.
Stupid question but, uh, what are "transients"? I thought I would ask here rather than start a thread and call even more attention to my stupid question.
"hoodlie hoodlie" = a term a friend of mine used to describe the "shredder" guitar solos of the eighties. I always thought that was funny.
They all sound the same..."hoodlie hoodlie hoodlie hoodlie hoodlie hoodlie"
Separate names with a comma.
