Sound recordings are “works that result from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds, but not including the sounds accompanying a motion picture or other audiovisual work.” Common examples include recordings of music, drama, or lectures (read details).
Copyright registration for a sound recording alone is neither the same as, nor a substitute for, registration for the musical, dramatic, or literary work recorded.
The underlying work may be registered in its own right apart from any recording of the performance, or in certain cases, the underlying work may be registered together with the sound recording (read details on choosing the correct form).

 Digital Sound Recording
Sound fills the air all around us, and our ear is working all the time to filter out unimportant sound from our consciousness so we can pay attention to the important information.
The advantages of digital recordings are that the sound can be manipulated computationally, there is no degradation from an original to a copy, and the signal can be sent for long distances over telecommunications links without picking up noise.
A sound recorder may capture sound from a microphone (mic in) or from an audio device (line in).

 RECORDING ACOUSTIC GUITAR
However, others record each of the mics on a separate track and then attempt to match their phases when mixing down -- this is a very similar technique to that described in detail last month by Craig Anderton in his article on aligning mic and DI signals.
Additional reverb may be needed if the recording was made in a small room or studio, or close-miked or DI signals dominate the recorded sound.
Where a DI signal has also been recorded, a pseudo-stereo sound can be produced by panning the miked sound to one side and the DI'ed sound to the other, and here a little added reverb or ambience can help 'glue' the two sounds together.

Panning is the placement of a sound in the stereo panorama (i.e., left, right or center) by manipulating the relative amplitude of the sound in each channel.
Once all of these separate sounds are recorded to a medium with suitable processing and manipulation, they will need to be combined together onto another recording medium, so that other people will be able to listen to them and so that you can store them in their final mixed-down state.
This function of combining the different sounds together is generally accomplished by a piece of equipment called the mixer (also known as a mixing console or a console).
