  • Binaural recording
    Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments.
  • Effects unit
    An effects unit or pedal is an electronic or digital device that alters how a musical instrument or other audio source sounds.
  • Music Canada
    Music Canada is a Toronto-based, non-profit trade organization that was founded 9 April 1963 to represent the interests of companies that record, manufacture, produce, promote and distribute music in Canada.
  • Studio monitor
    Studio monitors are loudspeakers specifically designed for audio production applications, such as recording studios, filmmaking, television studios, radio studios and project or home studios, where accurate audio reproduction is crucial, whereas reference monitors are loudspeakers generally used to gauge what a recording will sound like on consumer-grade speakers.
  • History of sound recording
    Experiments in capturing sound on a recording medium for preservation and reproduction began in earnest during the Industrial Revolution of the 1800s.
  • Laugh track
    A laugh track (or laughter track) is a separate soundtrack for a recorded comedy show containing the sound of audience laughter.
  • Magnetic tape
    Magnetic tape is a medium for magnetic recording, made of a thin, magnetizable coating on a long, narrow strip of plastic film.
  • Microphone
    A microphone, colloquially nicknamed mic or mike (/ˈmaɪk/), is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal.
  • Audio engineer
    An audio engineer works on the recording, manipulation using equalization and electronic effects, mixing, reproduction, and reinforcement of sound.
  • Mashup (music)
    A mashup (also mesh, mash up, mash-up, blend, bootleg and bastard pop/rock) is a song or composition created by blending two or more pre-recorded songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the instrumental track of another.
  • Recording studio
    A recording studio is a facility for sound recording and mixing.
  • Programming (music)
    Programming is a form of music production and performance using electronic devices, such as sequencers, to generate sounds of musical instruments.
  • Stereophonic sound
    Stereophonic sound or, more commonly, stereo, is a method of sound reproduction that creates an illusion of multi-directional audible perspective.
  • Promotional recording
    A promotional recording, or promo, is an audio or video recording distributed for free, usually in order to promote a recording that is or soon will be commercially available.
  • Flanging
    Flanging /ˈflændʒɪŋ/ is an audio effect produced by mixing two identical signals together, one signal delayed by a small and gradually changing period, usually smaller than 20 milliseconds.
  • Audio power amplifier
    An audio power amplifier (or power amp) is an electronic amplifier that amplifies low-power electronic audio signals (signals composed primarily of frequencies between 20 - 20 000 Hz, the human range of hearing) to a level that is strong enough for driving loudspeakers and making the signal–whether it is recorded music or a live speech–audible to listeners.
  • Guitar speaker
    A guitar speaker is a loudspeaker – specifically the driver (transducer) part – designed for use in a combination guitar amplifier (in which a loudspeaker and an amplifier are installed in a wooden cabinet) of an electric guitar, or for use in a guitar speaker cabinet.
  • Overhead microphone
    Overhead microphones are those used in sound recording and live sound reproduction to pick up ambient sounds, transients and the overall blend of instruments.
  • Spill (audio)
    Spill (also known as bleed and leakage) is the occurrence in sound recording (particularly in close miking) and live sound mixing whereby sound is picked up by a microphone from a source other than that which is intended.
  • Music technology (electronic and digital)
    Electronic and digital music technology is the use of electronic or digital instruments, computers, electronic effects units, software or digital audio equipment by a musician, composer, sound engineer, DJ or record producer to make, perform or record music.
  • Dummy head recording
    In acoustics, the dummy head recording (also known as artificial head, Kunstkopf or Head and Torso Simulator) is a method of recording used to generate binaural recordings.
  • Talk box
    The box has connectors for the connection to the speaker output of an instrument amplifier and a connection to a normal instrument speaker.
  • Noise in music
    In music, noise is variously described as unpitched, indeterminate, uncontrolled, loud, unmusical, or unwanted sound.
  • Rigler-Deutsch Index
    The Rigler and Deutsch Index of Recorded Sound, also known as the Rigler Deutsch Index, is a union catalog collocation of the U.
