Editing is an important part of audio post production, occurring after audio has been recorded and preparing tracks and files for mixing.

The practice alters the shape, length and locations of recorded waveforms and is necessary in order to remove any recording errors, ensure instruments and tracks are correctly in time with each other and ensure and optimize musicality of the production.

Editing can vary from altering very small snippets of audio, all the way through to re-arranging and reconstructing tracks, and furthermore creating loops and samples.

Editing is often part of audio mixing workflow, but in modern productions the two can be performed separately. This is beneficial in many ways: it can save time for mix engineers; facilitates multiple people working on projects; sometimes offers more precise results and provides more flexibility for workflows (particularly with electronic based music productions).

Additional Information

Most edits now occur in the software based recording programs (DAWs), although traditional all-analog recording methods would require the physical splicing of tape if tracks or recording parts could not otherwise be correctly captured and aligned.
