Couldn't find a thread for this anywhere so I made one, just wondering how everyone is feeling for this exam tomorrow and what questions you think might come up?

Not to sure really, I'm not bad at the actual mixing stuff on logic but its just the essay question i recon I'm screwed on. Too much stuff to learn for last minute cramming as well!

hopefully compression or MIDI will come up (on the essay question), I'm basically just cramming for these two...

I'm thinking that as well because it hasn't come up in the whole spec, I'm doing less revision on the stuff in the past.
I'm also worried because I haven't brushed up on basic music theory, like I can read the Staff, and tell the key signature, but i can't read sharp/flat keys, and the technique markings

Ahhh I'm a classical music student so I'm okay with theory, Its just a general lack of knowledge about technology stuff for the essay question. It's likely that more complicated theory will only be one mark or two, and its often weird that you know more than you think you do!!

synthesis came up last year in the essay question, but they might throw in a couple questions on additive and subtractive synthesis so I just brushed up on that !

Ah yes this did come up last year I'm just doing that paper, and the practical last year was actually quite good.

I'm worrying what it could be, because I'm unsure if they'll go back to the past, or just throw in something new:/ I've been brainstorming the possible questions, but I guess it's just a matter of knowledge rather than luck now haha

Studio environment? Care to elaborate?

And I was thinking Compression, the ins and outs.
Or it could be a massive section on how to affect a signal (which I'd love)
