What does an Audio Engineer do?

An Audio Engineer works on sound recordings for music, radio, television or stage productions. You’ll make sure audio quality is suitable and may have to edit or enhance sounds during the recording process or later during editing. Audio Engineers mix audio together using editing consoles and you might use engineering techniques to add special sound effects.

An Audio Engineer must be able to work as part of a recording team. You’ll need to be organised and be able to follow a production schedule. Audio Engineers need strong attention to detail and excellent technical skills. You’ll need to operate various sound equipment and may have to work on location when required.
