Studios have traditionally required many different types of equipment - mixing desks, tape recorders, effects units, dynamics processors, and of course a multitude of cables to join them all together with. These days, the computer can fulfil many or even all of these functions, bringing with it a variety of new techniques and working methods.

This article will look at how to integrate a computer into different studio environments, and will highlight the issues of functionality and connectivity.
