  • Contribute to Performances: During recording sessions, sound engineers produce and alter sound to enhance the production. For instance, they might employ sound effects or adjust microphones to create ideal compositions. If a sound-related problem arises, sound engineers must think on their feet to quickly resolve the situation, such as by fixing equipment or getting someone a different microphone.

They determine the best places in which to position microphones and other sound equipment to capture voices and reduce background noise. Sound engineers also record music or voices directly in a studio for products.
