The audio of every video holds within it layers and layers of sound that require careful attention and delicate treatment. Sound effects, foley, ambience, dialog and music are all part of those layers. Each of them has to be treated differently to affect the viewer at the exact right time.

The mix is the most important process towards the final step of any audio project. Now is the time to design a whole piece from the different instruments that are playing together and give the project its unique sound and color. Making space in the mix for all of those instruments is fine, delicate work.
Each recording project has its own unique 
characteristics which the recording engineer is responsible for. The engineer's role is to achieve the most precise sound together with the producer/artists. Choosing the best microphone and the perfect placement is the bread and butter of the recording engineer.
