So you wanna make music with your computer? There’s never been a better time to get started—technology has come a long way since the “dinosaur days” of analog tape and $30,000 recording machines. You can get up and  running for a lot less these days—and make high-quality recordings that would have been practically impossible 20 years ago.

Understanding the Basics

To fully understand digital audio technology, consider how the analog recording process works:

Microphones pick up sound waves, which are converted to electrical energy and sent to a tape recorder. The tape recorder then stores these electrical signals on magnetic tap allowing the recorded sounds to be played back and stored.

The digital recording process is similar, except that instead of being stored on magnetic tape, the electrical signals pass through an analog‑to‑digital converter and are stored as data on a hard disk drive. Today’s digital audio workstation software, such as Pro Tools, can emulate many aspects of the analog process, including multi-track recording, tape compression, track editing, punch recording, direct monitoring and more.

The key difference is that expensive analog gear can now be replaced by an affordable digital studio— with an audio interface as its centerpiece

Even if you’ve already made the plunge into digital recording, reading this issue of Overdub can help you better understand how your gear works and identify ways you can improve your studio.
