Recording Software – It is a program, on either your personal computer or mobile device, that lets you record audio, edit its duration, and add effects to change its sonic character. Most music recording software falls into one of three categories: digital audio workstations (DAWs), digital instruments, and plugin effects.

AW stands for digital audio workstation. This is a program that allows you to record and sequence audio. Nearly all DAWs represent audio recordings as graphic waveforms, which are tall when the music is loud, and short when the music is quiet. When music plays back in your DAW, the waveform scrolls from right to left.

It allow you to manipulate the audio waveforms that you’ve assembled for your project (often referred to as a “session” by music engineers). You can add effects like reverb, tremolo, and distortion. You can play waveforms backward. You can speed them up and slow them down—without necessarily altering the pitch.

DAWs can process audio signals that enter your computer as streams of digital information. This is made possible by a digital audio converter (DAC) such as the Focusrite Scarlett series. These devices record audio through microphones and then convert them to digital signals, which are fed to the computer via USB. The DAW software then converts these digital streams back to audio that can be heard through computer speakers or headphones.
