TrackIt is known as track to the vestige, sign or indication that allows you to advance in a investigation. Clues are certain pieces of information that, once discovered or noticed, serve to infer or infer new data.

For instance: “The detective found important clues at the crime scene”, “They left me an anonymous message under the door and I have no clue as to who the perpetrator could be”, “The perfect crime does not exist: there is always some clue that the investigator can analyze to discover the truth”.

A clue can also be a collaboration or one help what is offered to another person in certain contexts. The intention of the person who provides the clue is for the interlocutor to discover something on their own, without having to provide the complete answer.

These types of tracks can be supplied within the framework of a play (a father hiding a surprise gift for his son and giving him clues to discover its location) or from a evaluation (a teacher who gives clues to a student so that he remembers certain data and can answer the questions of an exam).

The clues, in another sense, are Physical spaces that are delimited so that they can fulfill a specific function. It can be spoken of race tracks, landing strips, dance floors, etc.: “The German runner has already won five times on this track”, “The pilot could not locate the runway due to the fog and decided to postpone the landing”.

A clue, finally, can be a band that is part of a magnetic disk or tape. These tracks independently hold data that, when put together, make a work whole.

TrackIn the world of popular music, for example, a track is often referred to as a synonym for “song,” and each one is made up of many independent parts (the so-called layers) that are usually recorded separately, although they can also be composed of various fragments recorded in other sessions. If we simplify the process to the minimum possible degree of complexity, we can say that some musicians record each instrument on a different layer and finally combine them to give birth to the complete work, that is, the track.

Needless to say, in reality the work is much less direct. One of the reasons is the need to repeat certain shots until the desired results are achieved. We must also mention post-production, all those touch-ups that are carried out on the material obtained in the study, which is called “crude”, to correct imperfections in time or tuning, add sound effects or convert small parts into recurring bases, among many other possibilities.

To carry out the recording of a song there are a large number of possible configurations, with a clear distinction between a professional studio and a home studio. Broadly speaking, in addition to the microphones and noise-isolating walls, a device capable of storing the shots and mixing them is needed, something that is done with the help of a computer program.

In general, if it is a group of musicians, it is usually divided to record the instruments separately or at least in subgroups of similar sounds or qualities. It is common to start with the one that sets the rhythm of the piece, so that it serves as a canvas on which the others are attached.

Each musician can use the previous sessions by listening to them with headphones while doing their work, with the intention of playing their part at the same speed, respecting the rhythm and variations to perfection. In this way, more and more layers, until all the necessary tools are achieved to reconstruct the song digitally on one track.
