Introducing the DAW: Digital Audio Foundations

The digital audio workstation or DAW can take over the job of dozens or hundreds of pieces of analog equipment. Matt explains how using a DAW enables nonlinear recording, by using a random-access hard drive or SSD to store sound instead of sequential tape, and nondestructive editing, by manipulating a map that points to audio files. Digital processing is also much more convenient than analog, because software can be duplicated easily and doesn't require storage and care like analog processors.
