This page is part of the same proposal as User:LordSputnik/Proposals/Style/Recording.


Proposal

A MusicBrainz recording represents audio before it was copied or mastered to create at least one released track. In other words, a recording corresponds to a step in the audio production process before any final mastering but after any editing or mixing. In MusicBrainz, each track on each release features a particular recording. Several tracks may feature the same recording, in which case the recording groups similar tracks.
