What Audio Engineers Do

The definition of an audio engineer, in simple terms, is an engineer who uses technology to manipulate sounds. Audio Engineers use sound engineering equipment such as mixing consoles and digital audio workstations to record, mix and master audio. They have many names and roles, such as:

  • live sound engineer
  • recording engineer
  • mix engineer
  • mastering engineer
  • audio systems engineer
  • sound designer
  • studio engineer

The versatile sound engineering skills of the Audio Engineers at Crash Symphony Productions encompass both of the analogue and digital realms by constantly adapting to the latest audio engineering technology while still staying true to the recording origins of vintage audio gear.

James Englund and Stewart Havill combine vintage microphones and custom-built compressors with the latest and most advanced music software tools in the industry. Crash Symphony Productions have the equipment and expertise to provide you with superior sound quality unheard of in any other recording studio in Sydney.

Who Do Audio Engineers Work With? 

Audio Engineers generally work with music producers, musicians, voiceover actors and radio presenters in the performing arts and music industry. 

We love to work with musicians of any genre to record their music performances. We have also worked on numerous voiceovers for movies, commercials, radio, and corporate presentations. Our customised voice recording set-up is unrivalled, with a recording chain not found in any other recording studio in the world. Our sole purpose is to deliver the best industry-standard service to all clients. 

Where Do Audio Engineers Work? 

You can find Audio Engineers working in any location for live sound. Although, you will find them in the recording studio for most of their career.


Everything in the Crash Symphony Productions recording studio has been specifically built to capture voice recordings with the lowest signal-to-noise ratio possible. All cables, power sources, and air conditioning systems have been custom made with this purpose as a priority. Additionally, our recording booth has been constructed inside an existing recording booth for further sound isolation. 

Is Audio Engineering The Same as Music Production?

Audio Engineers are more involved in technical aspects such as recording, mixing and mastering. Music Producers are more engaged in creative ideas and artistic approaches to music production.

James Englund and Stewart Havill have decades of experience in audio engineering and music production.  

Stewart Havill has played the piano and drums for over 30 years in numerous bands. James Englund plays guitar, bass, drums, piano, saxophone and is a professional singer. 

Our Audio Engineers and Music Producers can provide sound production for your album or advertisement and also mixing/mastering services across any genre.
