Digital Recording

  • John M. Eargle


By the mid-1990s, digital recording had become a virtual industry standard for classical recording and for multichannel mixdown for commercial release formats. The supreme advantage of digital recording is that it can provide a direct path from the studio to the home listener; in most cases, the original digital tracks are not subjected to any analog signal processing or further rerecording, and what ends up in the consumer’s living room, via CD, is a program source identical to what the producer and engineer heard in their postproduction studio.
