The process of recording audio signals by converting the signals to a digital representation, and writing the signal data to a computer’s disk drive. This is as opposed to recording in analog format to magnetic tape, which had been the standard in the post-World War II era up until recently. Among other benefits, hard disk recording allows instant queing to any point, editing of individual tracks, a theoretically infinite number of tracks, and undoable editing ¾ all things which were difficult or impossible with tape. Most sequencer software on the market now includes hard disk recording capability, synchronized with MIDI tracks recorded by the sequencer.
