Quote of the Day

“The criteria should be what the message is, what the story is. What’s the bottom line? It shouldn’t be how fast you can play the run, but can you keep time? Do you have a heart, do you have a soul, what’s your message? And that gets kicked aside.”- Les Paul

track (audio term)

On analog tape, a track is the line of magnetization caused by a single record head as the tape passes over the head during recording and is read by the playback head during playback. In digital audio, this metaphor is continued in the GUI, although a track is no longer a strictly linear entity.
