 Audio mixing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Audio mixing is used for sound recording, audio editing and sound systems to balance the relative volume and frequency content of a number of sound sources.
At other times, audio mixing is done in studios as part of multitrack recording in order to produce digital or analog audio recordings, or as part of an album, film or television program.
An audio mixing console, or mixing desk, or mixing board, has numerous rotating controls (potentiometers) and sliding controls (faders which are also potentiometers) that are used to manipulate the volume, the addition of effects such as reverb, and frequency content (equalization) of audio signals.

 rec.audio.pro FAQ (v 0.9)
Audio schools are great, you get trained on the gear that is used by top studios and costs millions of dollars, you get taught by pros in the field and you have job placement assistance after you graduate.
The simplest audio circuit uses a single wire to carry the signal; the return path, which is needed for current to flow in the wire, is provided through a ground connection, usually through a shield around the wire.
In digital audio we are concerned with the base-band - that is to say the signal components which extend from 0 to B. Therefore, to sample at the standard digital audio rate of 44.1 kHz requires the input signal to be band-limited to the range 0 Hz to 22.05 kHz.

 Audio Engineer training?
Bear in mind that boosting narrow bands of eq to full is not usually a recommended technique for processing audio; what this excersize does is to train your ear to hear what the different frequencies sound like.
You learn to "hear" 260 Hz as the bandwidth right around middle C, for instance, and also to hear it as a frequency with a distinct character in the low mids, that could alternately be described as "muddy" or "full" or "warm".
I know you want more than EQ, so taking acourse is good-if there are any more experienced engineers in your area that wouldn't mind you sitting in and going out for coffee that is a great learning experience-better than books.

 Television Production: Digital Audio for TV and Radio
This is possible because of the precise timing pulses associated with digital audio and the fact that digital signal is comprised of "0s"and"1s." These represent simple positive and negative voltages that are not close to each other in value (so as to get easily confused or muddled along the line).
Unlike analog audio, where exceeding the maximum level will result in signal distortion, in digital audio you might not notice mild clipping (the elimination of occasional audio peaks).
People working with digital audio should at least be aware of the potential problem, and before a video project is started, consult an engineer about the possible problems that could arise in the conversion process.
