What is audio editing and audio mixing?

Audio editing is much like editing a written document. It involves copying, cutting, replacing and deleting portions of the audio file depending on the end goal. Creating the perfect audio involves more than just recording audio and producing it. There are software and hardware available for editors to put together different audio pieces. This can be done on digital audio workstations or DAW’s.

Audio mixing may be a part of audio editing and refers to combining different audio pieces or sounds via multiple channels to create one combined file. This process is extremely noticeable with modern music forms. Simple effects like echo and reverb are added to audio clips to enhance it.
