With the high rate of advancement in sound reproduction over the course of 100 years, the concept of recording and enhancing sound for playback has become an integral part of not only the music industry but the music itself. The role of the recording and mixing engineers is to forge “soundscapes” using a set of parameters that modify and organize the recorded sound. These techniques are integral to discussing any music theory today, as music has transcended being solely performance-practice based, and the technique of mass reproducing a song is now defined by the sculpting of it sonically.
