Audio Recording

Is the storage of sound so that a person can hear the same sound more than once. It is a process wherein sound waves are captured by a machine. The machine converts the waves into electrical signals or digital data, that are then stored on recording media. The sound can then be played back by reversing the process. Most recordings are of music, people speaking or singing, and sound effects. Sound is recorded onto a medium by different methods.

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. Also, effects such as reverberation and echo may be added. The process is generally carried out by a mixing engineer operating a mixing console or digital audio workstation.

Audio Mastering

Mastering a form of audio post production, is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from a source containing the final mix to a data storage medium (the master); the source from which all copies will be produced (via methods such as pressing, duplication or replication). In recent years digital masters have become usual.
