The practice of audio engineering is both an art and a science. for success in audio production, an engineer should ideally possess both an understanding of theoretical concepts and highly developed critical listening skills related to sound recording and production. Each recording project has its own set of requirements, and engineers cannot rely on one set of recording procedures for every project. As such, they must rely on a combination of technical knowledge and listening skills to guide their work.

Although technical knowledge of analog electronics, digital signal processing, audio signal analysis, and the theoretical aspects of audio equipment is critical for a solid understanding of the principles of audio engineering, many ...
