Recording: The process of capturing perfect quality audio to be used for production.

  • We can record on location as long as there is power and it works for the purpose of the recording.

Audio mixing is the process by which multiple sounds are combined into one or more channels. In the process, a source's volume level, frequency, content, dynamics, and panoramic position are manipulated and or enhanced. -Wikipedia

This step includes

  • Comping (combining the best takes of recorded tracks into one track)

  • Editing (removing unwanted noises, tuning , adjusting timing, adjusting file gain)

  • Volume levels, Panning, Equalization, Compression, Reverb, and Time Based Effects like Delays..

Audio Mastering is the process of taking a mix and preparing it for distribution. -izotope

  • This step makes your tracks sound sweet, big, wide, and ready for the radio
