    Just as musicians treasure their guitars, amps, keyboards, and drums to create their tone and sound, audio engineers also have their sonic instruments and tools to shape tone and bring color and life to audio.
    The sonic tools that audio engineers use to capture and shape sound include microphones, mic pre amplifiers, equalization, dynamics processors, and effects processors.
