Quote of the Day

“I just make sure that the sound that is being recorded is as close to the sound I want as possible. I don’t want to rely on the engineers to monkey around with the eq afterwards—unless it’s an effect that you’re trying to get.”- Leon Redbone

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.
