A digital audio workstation (DAW) is a PC or Macintosh equipped with sound cards and software for editing and processing digital audio. A properly outfitted computer can now function like a sophisticated recording studio, using plug-ins and special software to create recording-studio quality sound on the desktop, and then allowing users to edit and process that sound to perfection. DAWs are not only revolutionizing the way music is recorded, but allow new forms of electronic music, created entirely in the computer, to be written and recorded on the desktop.

The Digital Audio Workstation Studio, by renowned digital music expert Colby Lieder, will be the first book to teach the complete DAW process, from outfitting your computer with the necessary hardware and software, recording with the proper microphones, using DAW power to create perfectly modulated mixes, to finally mastering down into a completely professional finished product.

With this book, a computer, and a little imagination, any musician can create utterly professional music CDs, DVDs, or streamed audio.
