An audio engineer, sometimes referred to as a sound technician, manages equipment and monitors levels during the actual recording process or live performance. Appropriate set-up to achieve the best possible sound is a key role in the job.
A typical day as a sound engineer involves responding to emails and tweets as they are your way of work. Soon you will be working with artists and be discussing pricing for studio rentals. (Assuming you have your own studio.) Then they will record and your job will be to mix and master the audio.
Software used as an audio engineer often include FL Studio, Logic X Pro, and a few other audio editing programs.
