Thread: Broken Tone

  1. #1

    Broken Tone

    Today I was doing work experience on a job where we had to transmit tone from our studio to another studio. The tone they used was a broken tone, ie every few seconds the tone drops pout for a second in a regular pattern. The guy I was working with didn't know why they use this sort of broken tone. Does anyone know what it's for?

    Re: Broken Tone

    It's useful if you are using more that one audio source (i.e. stereo audio). The left channel could be tested with continuous tone, and the right channel broken tone (also known as interrupted tone).
    Using two different tones will identify if the 2 channels have been accidently switched over somewhere.
    You could also use 2 tones of different frequencies if you wanted.
