In music production the recording studio is often treated as a musical instrument when it plays a significant role in the composition of music. This is an approach that has been called "playing the studio" and it is typically embodied by artists or producers who emphasise the creative use of studio technology in completing finished works over simply utilising studio technology to record musical performances. Techniques include the incorporation of non-musical sounds, overdubbing, tape edits, sound synthesis, audio signal processing, and combining segmented performances (takes) into a unified whole.
