"Understanding many of the hundreds of terms used in a recording studio by producers, engineers, composers, and musicians can be an overwhelming task. We hope to help eliminate the confusion by compiling an on-line glossary that will attempt to define commonly used buzzwords and jargon, both subjective (“I need a warm, weighty, yet puffy bass sound here…”) and straight-forward (“Did you join ASCAP yet…”).

McAvinchey, has posted this great glossary of words in music; in here, you can find terms, even to a "seasoned" recording engineer might not now.

Words like  "warm", "acoustic-feel", or  what is an "accent microphone" this is a great article with resources I can use to refer back to, just incase I want to keep a knowledgable look as a recording engineer.

Having a career in the studio I would imagine would be very overwhelming. Learning different terms as well as the signal flow of different consoles is extremely difficult when your learning the studio for the first time. After all of learning experience you start to have an appreciation of the recording process as well as the console. You soon learn that every studio in the world has different sounds because of the different shapes and material they use. After acknowledging that you appreciate the studio you work in because it always one of a kind.
