A highly accurate method of synchronizing music to picture. The tempo and length of the musical cue are predetermined so that the start, end and hit points of the score will coincide exactly with the visual. The musicians (or MIDI sequence) will follow the click track during the recording.
This is an audio track that contains a metronome beat at the tempo of the music which is removed just before mixing. This allows musicians to synchronise accurately to a film or parts recorded during another performance.
a basic device which aids in setting performances to their designated tempo
an audio click like a metronome that is the same length as the song,
a pre-recorded metronome sound that the conductor listens to via headphone so that he or she can conduct an ensemble at exactly that tempo
a recorded backing to a live performance
a very precise drum machine or metronome recording
A regular sound, such as from a metronome, usually recorded on one track of a multitrack and used to indicate the required tempo for recording musicians.
A timing device used when elements of the sound track are added after the animation has been completed. The beat to which the animation is matched is recorded onto tape and played through ear- phones for the conductor, sound effects creator, and/or voice artists, enabling them to match their sounds to the film.
A metronomic click, usually provided by a drum machine, recorded on one track of the multitrack as a timing reference. Makes it easier to edit the multitrack.
A musical rhythm. Each click represent one musical beat. A click of 12/0 denotes that one beat of music comes every 12 frames.
You can ignore this if you ever come across one. Everyone else does. Think of it like a metronome.
A click track is a series of audio cues used to synchronize sound recordings, often to a moving image. The click track originated in early sound movies, where marks were made on the film itself to indicate exact timings for musicians to accompany the film. It can be thought of as a recording of a metronome in that it serves a similar purpose.
