If you are considering music production careers here are a few more possibilities to explore. This article will discuss more possible career paths and the knowledge and skills you will need to be successful.
If you have good ears, and have a technical interest in how sound travels in a given space then you might be interested in becoming an acoustic

Rerecording Mixer (Film and Video)
Lets' say a film or business wants to use a particular song for a commercial or movie.
They will often rerecord the song or composition again to avoid having to negotiate and pay a sometimes rather large master-licensing fee to a record label for use of the actual (master) recording.
By recording the song again , they only have to pay the mechanical licensing fee, which is a rate that is established by the U.S. government (currently, 8.0¢ per song, per unit that is five minutes and under in length, and 1.55¢ for each minute above five minutes) and is much cheaper than a master-licensing fee.
Therefore, a rerecording mixer for film and video rerecords a song or composition that already has been commercially released.
