Hard-disk recording Definition from Computer & Internet Dictionaries & Glossaries
Glossary of Electronic Music Terms
A computer-based form of tapeless recording in which incoming audio is converted into digital data and stored on a hard disk.
Pablo Aguilar
Enables non midi instruments such as guitar or vocals to be recorded onto a computer. Even the newest devices and soundcards merely play-back sampled data with volume changes. Musicians require that these waves be edited to a much greater degree and, more importantly, are synchronised to the computer. This technological breakthrough enabled people to record songs and produce to high quality CDs on their computer at home.

English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
A hard disk recorder (HDR) is a type of direct-to-disk recording system that uses a high-capacity hard disk to record digital audio or digital video. Hard disk recording systems represent an alternative to more traditional reel-to-reel tape or cassette multitrack systems, and provide editing capabilities unavailable to tape recorders. The systems, which can be standalone or computer-based, typically include provisions for digital mixing and processing of the audio signal.
