Mastering Engineer

Producing an album is essentially a four-step process: recording, editing, mixing, and mastering. Mastering refers to the process of refining and transferring the final mix of audio tracks to a data storage device (the master) that will serve as the source for all future duplication; this may be a CD, vinyl record, or digital file.

Recording Assistant

Recording assistants can work as freelancers or full-time at a studio. The recording assistant’s specific job can vary by studio and is based on the needs of the recording engineer. Typically, this person is tasked with setting up instruments and signal inputs before each recording session, and ensuring that when the recording engineer arrives, she or he can just sit down and mix.

Recording Engineer

Before recording engineer Geoff Emerick was racking up acclaim and awards for his work with the Beatles, Elvis Costello, Cheap Trick, and Nellie McKay, he spent hours toiling away in the studio with the bands. Every note had to be shaped, mixed, and balanced together to achieve the artist’s intended vision. With the advent of increasingly more sophisticated audio manipulation technology, the recording engineer’s role in the production of a record is just as creative and vital as that of the vocalist, drummer, or guitarist.
