Digital Recording - WikiRecording This article is intended to be a high-level overview of concerns related to digital audio recording on a personal computer. Subtopics in this article may be split into separate articles in the future, but for now consider this a one-stop shop. A DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) is a computer system capable of recording and processing digital audio. When someone refers to recording into a DAW, it means they are storing the audio on a hard disk rather than using Analog Tape which before the advent of Computers was the primary way to record.
