Engineered for Greatness Part I: Tracking

Over the next couple of weeks I'll be discussing the different types of audio engineering skill that go into our award-winning music library of royalty free stock music. This should be interesting not only or our customers, but also for music lovers in general. Your favorite song has surely been touched by practitioners of the 3 widely recognized, but distinctly different disciplines of audio engineering: tracking, mixing and mastering. Let's talk about tracking first.

The biggest challenge with tracking sessions is making sure everything works while the music is flowing. That's often more difficult than it sounds. Major label acts often have the benefit of experts solely dedicated to making sure that the microphone is positioned optimally towards the acoustic guitar, the rotating speaker the Leslie cabinet isn't producing unnecessary motor noise and the lead singer has the brand of water that makes his/her voice sound the best.

Composers of instrumental library music can tell you that the best way to accomplish this is to make sure all the software versions are compatible, no incoming emails contain viruses, no outside noise is bleeding into the room and most importantly the musical vibes are flowing.

Easier said than done! Tune in next week for the trials and tribulations of mix engineering.
