DAW is Digital Audio Workstation. Digital Audio Workstations are the heart of every modern recording studio, and they have been for more than 25 years. They're digital because they use a computer to handle all of the input/output functions that would previously be handled by analog hardware devices like tape recorders, mixers, amplifiers, equalizers and other audio equipment. Digital Audio Workstations are also an important part of home studios used by bedroom producers who produce all their music on computers instead of using any kind of external sound sources or instruments.
