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.

HEAR TONS OF NEW MUSIC ON MUTINY RADIO

Notice all the plastic? I was hella breaking out CD's and playing new tracks. In the last month I have received a lot of new music. Some of the CD's were dropped off at the station, others were acquired while at SxSW, and a coup via my PO Box. It was a show of discovery for me and hopefully you.
