Sound technician along with producer
Here subject is (sound technician) singular so the verb should be singular. i.e makes

Option E is incorrect.
It is not clear that the word "which" after the comma refers to which event. ('mastering process' or 'adjustments to the volume levels')
So we do not know which step is stated "crucial".

Now if you would say that mastering process is itself the process of adjustments to the volume levels, then that would again be incorrect.
Option E says that w along with x make y during z. This could mean that either y is a subset of z or it is a completely different event.

PS: It feels i am solving an algebraic equation with multiple variables
