DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)

n.

Broad term for any digital recorder that acts as a virtual studio. These typically offer a combination of software that acts as a mixing console and hardware that acts as microphone input and pre-amp. DAWs were previously used mostly by DIYers or geeky engineers, but they have infultrated all aspects of the music industry, and are found in everything from make-shift bedroom studios to the symphony hall sized studios used for movie scores.

One of the most well-known and accessible DAWs is GarageBand, while the industry standard is ProTools. Other DAWs include Reason, Logic, and Cakewalk.
