Re-recording Mixer

1. A re-recording mixer, formerly known as a dubbing mixer, is a person who is part of a post-production sound team and works specifically with dialog, music and sound effects to create the final soundtrack for a production. They are responsible for ensuring that the sound in a record single, film or television program is technically correct, and as near to the director’s or sound designer’s original idea.

Re-recording mixers prepare an initial film soundtrack for audience previews by performing tasks such as mixing and cross-fading the sound, and adding a temporary music soundtrack that will have been prepared by the music editor. After the previews, the film is usually re-cut and the sound is mixed once more. Once the film is given its final approval by the producer and financial backers, the re-recording mixer works towards a final surround sound mix.

A re-recording mixer is someone, or a team of two or three individuals who, working with the Director of a film or television show achieve the desired sonic balance between dialog, sound effects, and music. foley.
