What is a Recording Engineer?

A recording engineer is an audio specialist who controls the audio board during a recording specialist. Such as when I worked for the radio station and a talk show host needed to go on vacation. He would come into the station early on a weekend, I would set up the computer to record, and let him record his show while I monitored his levels and sound quality. Later after the recording, I would go back through and make any edits or changes that needed to be made.
