In MusicBrainz, a '''recording''' is a set of one or more '''audio tracks''', which may have been '''mixed''' or '''edited''', but have not been '''mastered''' for a release.
An '''audio track''' is any captured sound, including (but not limited to) instrumental and vocal performances and existing recordings. Audio tracks should not be confused with [[Track|release tracks]].
'''Editing''' is defined as re-arranging audio tracks. This may involve adding, removing, lengthening or shortening sections of audio track, 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 involve applying 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. In MusicBrainz, the mastering process occurs on a level between recordings and [[Track|release tracks]].
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|track]] on [[Release|releases]] in one or more [[Release Group|release groups]].
These are all different Recordings:
