Sequencing Programmer

A musical score for film, television, or a video game endures several stages between the composer’s pen and the live orchestra recording. One of the final checkpoints is with the sequencing programmer, who converts sheet music to a simplified digital track.

Tree Sound Studios

Paul Diaz, the owner and president of Tree Sound Studios, founded the company with one explicit mission: “Educate the world on the importance of sustainable living and the impact of conscious consumerism through the power of music.” To that end, Diaz and his wife Sunshine have partnered to build the world’s most earth-friendly recording studio and several sister organizations.

Advertising Music Director

From simple jingles to fully orchestrated original compositions, visual advertising is far more impactful when accompanied by a soundtrack. Advertising media companies are hired by clients to contribute original songs to promotional materials and rely on the expertise of music directors to guide production of soundtracks that seamlessly support commercial advertisements and engage audiences.

Jingle Writer

Practiced in the short form of songwriting and an equally adept arranger, the jingle writer is a hired hand that specializes in composing music for advertisements, such as television and radio commercials. Whether exalting the wonders of toothpaste or an airline, this person has a knack for creating an auditory brand that artfully expresses the qualities of a product or company.

Mix Engineer

Each part of a song, pertaining to the individual instruments and vocals, is recorded independently and then combined later to create one album track. At the completion of the recording process, all of the separate tracks are delivered as a DVD or virtual files to the mix engineer and transferred to a mixing console for the final production. A mix engineer is concerned with artfully assembling those tracks and adding effects for sound quality and aesthetic enhancement. This person also adds elements like fade and stereo pan.

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.
