1
Produce a glossary of terms specific to the methods and principles of sound design and production. Using a provided template, you must
research and gather definitions specific to provided glossary terms. Any definitions must be referenced with the URL link of the website you
have obtained the definition.
You must also, where possible, provide specific details of how researched definitions relate to your own production practice.
Name: Cameron McRae RESEARCHED DEFINITION (provide short internet researched
definition and URL link)
DESCRIBE THE RELEVANCE OF THE
RESEARCHED TERM TO YOUR OWN
PRODUCTION PRACTICE?
SOUND DESIGN
METHODOLOGY
Foley Artistry Foleyartists matchlive sound effects with the action ofthe picture.
http://www.filmsound.org/terminology/foley.htm
I usedfoleyartistryto create some of
the background sounds for the cut
sequence.
Sound Libraries A collectionof sounds storedon file (for example on CDs, DVDs, or
as digital audiofiles)
http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/sound-library
I usedaudiofrom a sound libraryto help
learn how to use the Reaper software.
SOUND FILE FORMATS Uncompressed Uncompressing (or decompressing) is the act of expandinga
compressionfile backinto its original form.
http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/uncompressing-or-
decompressing
.wav A Microsoft andIBMaudio file format standard for storinganaudio
bit stream onPCs
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV
All of the audio I usedandrenderedwas
in the .wavformat.
.aiff An audiofile format standard used for storing sound data for
personalcomputers and other electronic audiodevices.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Interchange_File_Format
.aiff was a potential format for
rendering myaudio, but insteadI
decided to use .wav.
.au AU is a file extensionfor a soundfile format belongingto Sun, NeXT
and DECandusedin UNIX. The AU file format is also knownas the
Sparc-audioor u-law foment. AU files contain three parts:the audio
data andtext for a header (containing 24 bytes) and an annotation
block.
http://whatis.techtarget.com/fileformat/AU-Sun-NeXT-DEC-UNIX-
sound-file
I didn’t use this fileformat. Instead, I
used.wav.
.smp SMP (symmetric multiprocessing)is the processingof programs by
multiple processors that share a common operating system and
memory.
http://searchdatacenter.techtarget.com/definition/SMP
Lossy Compression Refers to data compression techniques in which some amount of

data is lost. Lossycompressiontechnologiesattempt to eliminate
redundant or unnecessaryinformation.
http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/L/lossy_compression.html
.mp3 A computer file format for the compressionand storage of digital
audiodata.
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mp3
.mp3 was a potential format to render
the audioas, but I decidedto use .wav
instead.
AUDIO LIMITATIONS Sound Processor Unit (SPU) A plug-incardthat records andplays back sound. Supporting both
digital audioandMIDI, soundcards provide aninput port for a
microphone or other sound source andoutput ports to speakers and
amplifiers.
http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Audio+processing+unit
Digital Sound Processor (DSP) A specialized microprocessor designedspecificallyfor digital signal
processing, generallyinreal-time computing. The DSP processes
digital signalsconverted fromanalogsignals.
http://www.audiocodes.com/glossary/dsp
Random Access Memory (RAM) A type of computer memorythat canbe accessedrandomly;that is,
anybyte of memorycanbe accessed without touching the
preceding bytes. RAMis the most common type of memoryfoundin
computers and other devices, suchas printers.
http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/R/RAM.html
Mono Audio Typicallythere is onlyone microphone, one loudspeaker, or (inthe
case of headphones andmultiple loudspeakers) channelsare fed
from a common signal path.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monaural
If I was listening to monoaudio, I
wouldn’t be able to create the effect of
movement anddistance, so I didn’t use
it.
Stereo Audio Reproduction of sound usingtwo or more separate microphones to
feed two or more loudspeakers throughseparate channels inorder
to give a spatial effect to the sound.
http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/stereo-sound
I usedstereoaudioso that I couldcreate
the effect of distance, and movement
from one place to another.
Surround Sound a system of soundrecording andreproduction that uses three or
more independent recording channels and loudspeakers inorder to
give the impressionthat the listener is surroundedbythe sound
sources
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/surround+sound
If I wantedaudioto soundlike it was
coming fromall directions, I wouldhave
usedSurroundsound. Instead, I used
stereoaudio, andonlyeditedthe audio
so it comes fromleft to right.
Direct Audio (Pulse Code
Modulation – PCM)
Pulse-code modulation (PCM) is a methodusedto digitallyrepresent
sampledanalog signals. It is the standard formof digital audioin
computers, Compact Discs, digital telephonyandother digital audio
applications.

AUDIO RECORDING
SYSTEMS
Analogue An analogue recordingis one that is made bychanging the sound
waves into electrical signals of the same type.
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/analogue
Digital Mini Disc A music mediumdesignedbySonyas a portable replacement for
music Compact Discs.
http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Mini+Disc
Compact Disc (CD) A small, portable, round medium made of moldedpolymer (close in
size to the floppydisk)for electronicallyrecording, storing, and
playing backaudio, video, text, andother informationindigital
form.
http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/definition/compact-disc
Digital Audio Tape (DAT) Magnetic tape on which soundis recorded digitally, giving high-
fidelityreproduction.
http://www.wordreference.com/definition/digital%20audio%20tape
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) A standardprotocol for the
interchange of musical informationbetweenmusical instruments,
synthesizers andcomputers.
http://www.pcmag.com/encyclopedia/term/47014/midi
I usedMIDI software to make
background music andnoises.
Software Sequencers An electronic device or software program that digitallystores sound
for modification and playbackthrougha synthesizer.
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sequencer
I usedsequencers to make our audio
clearer, andreduce anyaudiospikes.
Software Plug-ins Software plug-ins are add-ons for a program that adds functionality
to it.
http://techterms.com/definition/plugin
I importedplugins and used themto
edit our sounds.
MIDI Keyboard Instruments Typicallya piano-style user interface keyboarddevice usedfor
sending MIDI signals or commands over a USB or MIDI cable to other
devices connectedandoperatingon the same MIDI protocol
interface.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIDI_keyboard
I usedimportedMIDI instrument to
create basic background music for my
cut sequence.
AUDIO SAMPLING File Size Constraints - Bit-depth Bit depthdescribes the potential accuracyof a particular piece of
hardware or software that processes audio data. Ingeneral, the
more bits that are available, the more accurate the resulting output
from the data being processed.
http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/bit-depth
When rendering the audio, I set it to a
maximum of24 bit PCM.
File Size Constraints - Sample
Rate
Sampling is the process of measuringanaudiosignal at specific
points intime. The sampling rate or frequencyis expressed inHertz.
http://stereos.about.com/od/glossaryoftermss/g/sampling.htm
When rendering the audio, I set the
sample rate to 44100.

Sound recording glossary improved 2

  • 1. Salford City College Eccles Sixth Form Centre BTEC Extended Diploma in GAMES DESIGN Unit 73: Sound For Computer Games IG2 Task 1 1 Produce a glossary of terms specific to the methods and principles of sound design and production. Using a provided template, you must research and gather definitions specific to provided glossary terms. Any definitions must be referenced with the URL link of the website you have obtained the definition. You must also, where possible, provide specific details of how researched definitions relate to your own production practice. Name: Cameron McRae RESEARCHED DEFINITION (provide short internet researched definition and URL link) DESCRIBE THE RELEVANCE OF THE RESEARCHED TERM TO YOUR OWN PRODUCTION PRACTICE? SOUND DESIGN METHODOLOGY Foley Artistry Foleyartists matchlive sound effects with the action ofthe picture. http://www.filmsound.org/terminology/foley.htm I usedfoleyartistryto create some of the background sounds for the cut sequence. Sound Libraries A collectionof sounds storedon file (for example on CDs, DVDs, or as digital audiofiles) http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/sound-library I usedaudiofrom a sound libraryto help learn how to use the Reaper software. SOUND FILE FORMATS Uncompressed Uncompressing (or decompressing) is the act of expandinga compressionfile backinto its original form. http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/uncompressing-or- decompressing .wav A Microsoft andIBMaudio file format standard for storinganaudio bit stream onPCs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV All of the audio I usedandrenderedwas in the .wavformat. .aiff An audiofile format standard used for storing sound data for personalcomputers and other electronic audiodevices. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Interchange_File_Format .aiff was a potential format for rendering myaudio, but insteadI decided to use .wav. .au AU is a file extensionfor a soundfile format belongingto Sun, NeXT and DECandusedin UNIX. The AU file format is also knownas the Sparc-audioor u-law foment. AU files contain three parts:the audio data andtext for a header (containing 24 bytes) and an annotation block. http://whatis.techtarget.com/fileformat/AU-Sun-NeXT-DEC-UNIX- sound-file I didn’t use this fileformat. Instead, I used.wav. .smp SMP (symmetric multiprocessing)is the processingof programs by multiple processors that share a common operating system and memory. http://searchdatacenter.techtarget.com/definition/SMP Lossy Compression Refers to data compression techniques in which some amount of
  • 2. Salford City College Eccles Sixth Form Centre BTEC Extended Diploma in GAMES DESIGN Unit 73: Sound For Computer Games IG2 Task 1 2 data is lost. Lossycompressiontechnologiesattempt to eliminate redundant or unnecessaryinformation. http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/L/lossy_compression.html .mp3 A computer file format for the compressionand storage of digital audiodata. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mp3 .mp3 was a potential format to render the audioas, but I decidedto use .wav instead. AUDIO LIMITATIONS Sound Processor Unit (SPU) A plug-incardthat records andplays back sound. Supporting both digital audioandMIDI, soundcards provide aninput port for a microphone or other sound source andoutput ports to speakers and amplifiers. http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Audio+processing+unit Digital Sound Processor (DSP) A specialized microprocessor designedspecificallyfor digital signal processing, generallyinreal-time computing. The DSP processes digital signalsconverted fromanalogsignals. http://www.audiocodes.com/glossary/dsp Random Access Memory (RAM) A type of computer memorythat canbe accessedrandomly;that is, anybyte of memorycanbe accessed without touching the preceding bytes. RAMis the most common type of memoryfoundin computers and other devices, suchas printers. http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/R/RAM.html Mono Audio Typicallythere is onlyone microphone, one loudspeaker, or (inthe case of headphones andmultiple loudspeakers) channelsare fed from a common signal path. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monaural If I was listening to monoaudio, I wouldn’t be able to create the effect of movement anddistance, so I didn’t use it. Stereo Audio Reproduction of sound usingtwo or more separate microphones to feed two or more loudspeakers throughseparate channels inorder to give a spatial effect to the sound. http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/stereo-sound I usedstereoaudioso that I couldcreate the effect of distance, and movement from one place to another. Surround Sound a system of soundrecording andreproduction that uses three or more independent recording channels and loudspeakers inorder to give the impressionthat the listener is surroundedbythe sound sources http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/surround+sound If I wantedaudioto soundlike it was coming fromall directions, I wouldhave usedSurroundsound. Instead, I used stereoaudio, andonlyeditedthe audio so it comes fromleft to right. Direct Audio (Pulse Code Modulation – PCM) Pulse-code modulation (PCM) is a methodusedto digitallyrepresent sampledanalog signals. It is the standard formof digital audioin computers, Compact Discs, digital telephonyandother digital audio applications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-code_modulation
  • 3. Salford City College Eccles Sixth Form Centre BTEC Extended Diploma in GAMES DESIGN Unit 73: Sound For Computer Games IG2 Task 1 3 AUDIO RECORDING SYSTEMS Analogue An analogue recordingis one that is made bychanging the sound waves into electrical signals of the same type. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/analogue Digital Mini Disc A music mediumdesignedbySonyas a portable replacement for music Compact Discs. http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Mini+Disc Compact Disc (CD) A small, portable, round medium made of moldedpolymer (close in size to the floppydisk)for electronicallyrecording, storing, and playing backaudio, video, text, andother informationindigital form. http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/definition/compact-disc Digital Audio Tape (DAT) Magnetic tape on which soundis recorded digitally, giving high- fidelityreproduction. http://www.wordreference.com/definition/digital%20audio%20tape MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) A standardprotocol for the interchange of musical informationbetweenmusical instruments, synthesizers andcomputers. http://www.pcmag.com/encyclopedia/term/47014/midi I usedMIDI software to make background music andnoises. Software Sequencers An electronic device or software program that digitallystores sound for modification and playbackthrougha synthesizer. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sequencer I usedsequencers to make our audio clearer, andreduce anyaudiospikes. Software Plug-ins Software plug-ins are add-ons for a program that adds functionality to it. http://techterms.com/definition/plugin I importedplugins and used themto edit our sounds. MIDI Keyboard Instruments Typicallya piano-style user interface keyboarddevice usedfor sending MIDI signals or commands over a USB or MIDI cable to other devices connectedandoperatingon the same MIDI protocol interface. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIDI_keyboard I usedimportedMIDI instrument to create basic background music for my cut sequence. AUDIO SAMPLING File Size Constraints - Bit-depth Bit depthdescribes the potential accuracyof a particular piece of hardware or software that processes audio data. Ingeneral, the more bits that are available, the more accurate the resulting output from the data being processed. http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/bit-depth When rendering the audio, I set it to a maximum of24 bit PCM. File Size Constraints - Sample Rate Sampling is the process of measuringanaudiosignal at specific points intime. The sampling rate or frequencyis expressed inHertz. http://stereos.about.com/od/glossaryoftermss/g/sampling.htm When rendering the audio, I set the sample rate to 44100.
