Multitrack recorders are mainly used for the recording of music. They are provided with an internal storage medium or can be operated with an external one and therefore are to be utilized without an additional computer or audio interface. The origin of today’s multitrack recorders can be traced back to the functional principle of tape machines that were capable of recording single tracks or multiple tracks simultaneously. Thus every single track can afterwards be edited separately.
