Career as Audio engineer

What do audio engineers do?

Audio engineers are used in the installation, design, and/or operation of sound recording or sound broadcasting equipment. Often employed in recording studios, audio engineers apply these skills in recording, editing, mixing and mastering sound in order to create the final, finished product.
Audio engineers may also be used in fields such as movie and television sound production, advertising, and mutimedia projects. An audio engineer will usually be trained in the use of various sound equipment including mixer consoles, signal processors, microphones, tapedecks, digital audio applications, and speaker systems.
What does an audio engineer do?

Audio engineers are needed in practically every media industry -- whether it's to dub a television show, mix a movie soundtrack, or help create the latest hit CD , audio engineers make the transmission and translation of sound, atmosphere, and music possible. -- so you'll find quite a few options when it comes to finding a job. They're a vital part of any production and tend to work in groups, especially on larger productions such as movies.

In order to handle all of the tasks required of them, as well as the sensitive, hi-tech equipment used to make it all possible, audio engineers must first receive the right education and training from an audio engineering school. There they'll learn all about the equipment -- patch bays, mixing consoles, dynamic processors, audio cable connectors, audio monitors, mics, and samplers -- and how to mix and redub audio to perfection
How much do audio engineers get paid :
A new employee who is just beginning should expect as an audioengineer with The average pay is around 20,000/-per month in astudio.Once you gain 1-2 years experience you can expectaround 30-40,000/-per month. If you are working as feature film per film you charge between 20-30 lakper film which finishes in 6-months to 1-year.It is primarily a freelance business. The trend is that studios have been shedding full-time staff engineers, as the competition has become tighter. More often than not, the engineer is hired by the band, the label, or the producer on a per-project basis. So it is generally more appropriate to talk about someone's day rate. I'll let somebody else talk real numbers, but I will also add that it is not common to intern to be paid for 3-6 months around 5-7,000/-per month when you are just getting started. The income you can expect really depends upon what sort of industry you find yourself in, whether it's corporate/advertising work, indie rock, video, etc.

what kinds of audio engineering jobs can I get?

Over the years, audio engineering and sound engineering have come to refer to two distinctly different career tracks in the audio industry. Audio engineers on the production side of the industry work in audio rooms, mixing, dubbing, and creating the sound effects and fine touches that create a memorable movie or CD. Audio engineers on the tech side, meanwhile, work on the production and care of the audio equipment that makes audio production and recording possible. However, the majority of the time the term "audio engineer" refers to the former not the latter, and that's why audio engineering schools focus primarily on teaching students how to create the best audio tracks possible.
