What does an Audio Engineer Intern do?
Audio engineers use machinery and equipment to record, synchronize, mix, or produce sounds including music, voice work, or sound effects. They work on movie productions, music recordings, live shows, and video games. They are responsible for minimizing unwanted sound and regulating volume levels on sound quality. They set up ambient sound microphones, collaborate with producers and performers, provide oversight for live productions, and meet clients’ quality standards. They must maintain and repair equipment and replace it when necessary.
Audio engineers ensure they obtain the desired sound as requested by musicians and record producers using various technical tools. They take sound and edit it by joining parts of songs, adding synthetic sounds, using auto-tune functions, and mixing tracks. Audio engineers often attend post-secondary vocal programs and receive certification.
