TAPER A digital signal processing function that fades a sound in or out between two points.

TERMINATING RESISTORS Also called a terminator. A group of resistors that should be placed on the SCSI cable before the last device on a SCSI chain. Usually the terminating resistor is built inside the SCSI device. There should be no more than two terminators in a SCSI chain: one at the start, and one at the end.

TIMBRE Tone colour. The quality of a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds with the same pitch and volume.

TREMALO A cyclic change in amplitude, usually in the range of 7 to 14 Hz. Usually achieved by routing a LFO (low frequency oscillator) to a VCA (voltage controlled amplifier).

TRUNCATE When manipulating a sample, truncation shortens a sample's length by trimming off parts of the beginning and/or end.
