'''Proposal'''
 
==Overview==
 
In MusicBrainz, a '''recording''' is either the result of '''mixing''' and/or '''editing''' one or more '''audio tracks''', or unmixed and unedited recorded sound.
 
 
 
 
 
An '''audio track''' is recorded sound, captured from a studio or live performance or from other audio sources, including existing recordings.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Editing''' is defined as re-arranging audio tracks. This involves adding, removing, lengthening or shortening sections of audio tracks, or moving them relative to other sections.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Mixing''' is the process by which audio tracks are combined into one or more output audio channels. Mixing may apply a variety of audio processing techniques to audio tracks, such as equalization, panning, volume adjustment and compression.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Mastering''' is a process that is applied to the mixed and/or edited audio tracks, to prepare them for release. Since mastering is a process which can only happen after a recording is completed, it does not factor into the definition of recording.
 
 
 
 
 
It is usually the case that a recording is a mix of a performance of a [[work]] by a particular [[artist]], and appears as a track on [[Release|releases]] in one or more [[Release Group|release groups]].
 
 
 
==Examples==
 
These are all different Recordings:
