Job Opportunities

A studio engineer's responsibilities generally involve recording and processing audio so that it's ready for commercial use or release. Their role involves working with musicians in a studio, managing recording sessions and ensuring sound is captured at the desired quality.
Post Production Engineers will work as part of a team of both creative and technical individuals in a studio environment.. The broad purpose of the occupation is to enable creative individuals in the film and television sector to be able to produce high quality content. Audio post production is all stages of audio production relating to sound produced and synchronized with moving picture (film, television, or video). It involves sound design, sound effects, Foley, ADR, sound editing, audio mixing, mastering etc.
A music programmer works to express thoughts and ideas musically by using electronic devices and computer software such as sequencers, synthesizers, samplers, and other equipment. Musicians use these tools in the recording studio to create the sounds of different instruments.
Music Arrangers help finish, rework, and adapt preexisting compositions by altering elements such as instrumentation, orchestration, harmony, tempo, and genre. Arrangers work in a number of professional industries, including live music, musical theater, the record industry, and film and TV.
Broadcast engineers play an integral role in the radio and television industries, where they're responsible for keeping scheduled broadcasts running, setting up live broadcasts in the field or studio, maintaining and updating broadcasting hardware and software, and addressing broadcasting problems as they arise. Broadcast engineers are responsible for the strength, clarity, and overall quality of sounds and images broadcast on radio and television, and—increasingly—sound and image transmitted via satellite, cable, and the internet.
A live sound engineer is someone who blends and balances multiple sounds at a live event by using a mixing console, pre-recorded material, voices and instruments. The sounds are equalized, routed and amplified through loudspeakers. This requires more than just plugging in amplifiers, as each venue is different - from the outdoor arena, to the concert hall or a small, intimate bar. Each brings its own challenges to the live sound engineer, and requires knowledge of electronics and acoustics as well as the ability to work with a producer or a band to get the wanted sound. The live sound engineer is often in charge of a crew of technicians who are in charge of other B.Voc in Audio Technology duties, such as running cables and setting up microphones. Technical rehearsals and sound checks may be held hours, days or weeks before a concert in order to fine tune all the technical aspects of the live performance.
Mixing & Mastering engineers use technical expertise and superb ears to make the final adjustments to a piece of recorded music before it's released, heightening its impact and ensuring that it will translate well to the variety of playback systems in use today.
The recording engineer oversees many technical and aesthetic aspects of a recording session and is responsible for the overall sound of all recorded tracks, ensuring that the mixing engineer has good material to work with and that the final product satisfies the artists and producers.
A Foley engineer, also known as a Foley artist, is responsible for creating an immersive experience for the audience of a film or TV show by adding the sounds that make the situation presented feel more realistic. Foley engineers recreate those sounds for video and film, as well as other media, during the post-production phase. 
In the case of installed sound systems, an audio consultant is a skilled professional who understands the entire design process, how to make the various parts of the system work as they should, and has a lot of creative ideas for each project they work on Audio installation Engineer
