A recording album was born in a house called a recording studio. The recording studio is a special facility for recording sounds, mixing and producing audio produced from a musical and / or vocal performance, and so on. The size of the recording studio varies. There is a small size which is usually at home, there is also a large one that can even record musical performances with many musicians. For example, recording an orchestra performance with dozens of musicians. If we pay attention, there are four parties or people, who play a role in the activity of making a new music album. They are musicians, producers, engineers, online mixing and mastering.

In a recording project, the producer plays a role in applying the standards and vision of the recording. It was he in the end who judged whether the recorded track had been recorded properly and saw whether the musician or vocalist had done his job well. The engineer has a role in providing devices and systems in his studio, where the technology can realize what the recording objectives are.

For example, using the right microphone, also the selection of certain settings, especially when the results of the recording are thrown to a particular recording media, both tape and disc. In the mixing process, a mixer will take the tracks that have been recorded and help the producer realize the vision of the desired album by combining existing tracks per track properly. Meanwhile the master will make the finishing touches of this recording product. for example, by setting a level, and making all the sounds on the recording into a beautiful whole when listening to the recording later.
