Audio Recording Engineers


Employment of sound engineering technicians is expected to grow faster than the average of other professions through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. New computer technology (hardware and software) is rapidly changing the way many recording engineers perform their jobs, making the entire audio recording process easier. These technological advancements will negatively affect job prospects for entry-level studio technicians whose more mundane recording tasks will increasingly be performed by computers.

On the other hand, as American media expands through technology and national and international markets such as digital cable and satellite broadcasting open up, opportunities for audio recording engineers will likewise increase.
