Whether done using an electric mixer or by hand with a fork, spoon, or whisk, to 'beat' is to vigorously mix, blend, or stir a mixture in a circular motion. This technique changes the consistency of the ingredient(s), from the smoothing, mixing and aerating the ingredients for a cake batter, to incorporating air into egg whites or sweet cream. 100 strokes by hand will equal about one minute with an electric mixer.
The number of rowing strokes per minute (spm); the number can range from 0 (the crew is sound asleep) to 50+, usually between 16 and 42, depending on the workout. Nothing to do with the power of the stroke, it is a measure of how frequently the crew is putting the oars in and out of the water.
To lift a mixture rapidly up and over with a fork, spoon, wire whisk, rotary or electric beater, for the purpose of introducing air or making the mixture smooth, stiff in the case of egg whites, or fluid in an omelette mix.
To smoothen a mixture by briskly whipping it with a spoon, fork, roddery beater, wire whisk or electric mixer. You are also adding air, which will make your cake light and fluffy. Most cakes, pies and other recipes call for this before baking. If you are doing it with a hand mixer, make sure you have the mixers completely in the bowl before turning on the mixer. Then be sure to turn the mixer off before removing it from the bowl. If you are using a spoon or a whisk, make sure to get a big enough bowl so none of the liquid will spill out while you are stirring or beating the ingredients together. Remember to scrape the sides of the bowl periodically throughout the process, so that all the mixture is beaten.
A sudden swelling or reënforcement of a sound, recurring at regular intervals, and produced by the interference of sound waves of slightly different periods of vibrations; applied also, by analogy, to other kinds of wave motions; the pulsation or throbbing produced by the vibrating together of two tones not quite in unison. See Beat, v. i., 8.
Regular pulsation; a basic unit of length in musical time. In this dance movement, the beats are regular, with a strong, or accented, beat followed by two weaker pulses ( - 2 - 3 - - 2 - 3). Example: Haydn, Symphony No. 94 ( Surprise), third movement Real Audio: 28K | 56K | About this album
The prevailing metrical pulse. There are three beats in a bar of 3/4; the conductor marks the beats with the baton. (Also a kind of musical ornament. Also an audible acoustic effect produced when two pitches approach perfect concord; the beats disappear when the frequencies match.)
Any pulsing unit of musical time is considered a beat. In metered music, the first pulse or beat of each bar is the "downbeat" and it is the accent which is normally most strongly emphasized. In some music -- notably jazz and rock -- the main emphasis often falls on one of the "afterbeats" or "backbeats" of the bar. Of course these descriptions betray Eurocentric attitudes. Beat also refers to the overall musical performance in jazz music.

The rhythmic or musical quality of a poem. In metrical verse, this is determined by the regular pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables. However, free verse often features a beat e.g. the work of Walt Whitman. Beat is one of the main things distinguishing poetry from prose.
1. A footfall within a gait. A hoof, or pair of hooves virtually simultanosly striking the ground. By this definition the walk has four beats, the trot has two, and the canter three. 2. The emphasized beat (as in music). By this definition the walk has two beats, the trot has two and the canter has one beat.
A parenthetically noted pause interrupting dialogue, denoted by (beat), for the purpose of indicating a significant shift in the direction of a scene, much in the way that a hinge connects a series of doors.
The tick of a clock, or the time taken for a pendulum or balance to swing from its center, or dead point, to one extreme and return to center again Most clock excapements beat twice per cycle The beats should be equally disposed about the center or dead point of the pendulum or balance Single-beat escapements, such as the chronometer and duplex, have one beat on each alternate swing of the balance
Korg's abbreviated way of saying " time signature". The time signatures you have to choose from depend on the Base Resolution setting. Your choices are: Base Resolution Available Time Signatures Low (48 ticks per quarter-note) 1/4 - 9/4 1/8 - 16/8 1/16 - 16/16 High (96 ticks per quarter-note) 1/4 - 5/4 1/8 - 10/8 1/16 - 16/16
A subject area or industry that is assigned to a newspaper staff reporter. For instance, the reporter can be assigned to report on all crime activity, on political happenings, or on specific news for one town or region.
