Audio Engineering, Mixing, Editing, & Sound Design

Music and sound effects are equal parts art and science. The ability to reshape and blend a sound into songs, or a completely different noise, takes an incredible amount of creative and technical skill. Although it may not take much to listen, it’s another thing entirely to be able to make something worth listening to.

There’s a whole world of sound possibilities that most of us aren’t even aware of. Audio engineering, sound mixing, and sound editing are just a few of the numerous jobs in the audio industry that are waiting for you to discover them. What are these careers, though, and how does one go about acquiring the necessary skills to get noticed? If you’re interested, put on your listening ears and find out.
