The Disk Drive as an Audio Recorder

By Francis Rumsey

Abstract

<p>The following tutorial paper describes how a block-structured mass storage device, such as a Winchester disk drive, may be made to function as part of a digital audio recording and editing system: the so-called -tapeless recorder-. It outlines the principles of random access sound file storage and buffering, together with a discussion of digital audio requirements and the historical precedent for disk recording.</p
