The Technical GRAMMY Award recognizes outstanding technical contributions to the field of recording.

The members of the Producers & Engineers Wing work together to shape the future of music recording. As a Recording Academy membership division, the P&E Wing advises the Academy on technical matters related to recording and also addresses matters of concern to producers, engineers, remixers, manufacturers, technologists, and other related professionals. What our members have in common is passion for both the creative and technical sides of recorded music. Whether it’s rock, classical, jazz, EDM, rap, country, R&B, pop, or any other genre or style, P&E Wing members know that the sound of a recording helps communicate emotion and bring a song to life. As legendary producer Phil Ramone, a founding member of the Wing once said, “Our work creates the beautiful marriage between music and technology.”

Currently home to around 6,000 members, the Wing is a national network. Sound quality, development of new technologies, technical best practices, education in the recording arts, and advocacy for the rights of music creators are all part of the P&E Wing mix. If you are a person who is serious about making great music recordings, the Producers & Engineers Wing is the place to be.

This fact has prompted members of the P&E Wing to pool their expertise and collaborate in volunteer committee groups that address some of these problems and offer solutions.

The guidelines linked below are the result of those collaborations.
