Proposal

Overview

In MusicBrainz, a recording is either unmixed and unedited recorded sound or the result of mixing and/or editing one or more audio tracks.


An audio track is any captured sound, including (but not limited to) instrumental and vocal performances and 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 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 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 on releases in one or more release groups.
