In this lesson, you’ll learn how to work with tracks. Sure, that doesn’t sound like much fun—until you get a better perspective on the power of tracks. Have you ever heard of a 4-track recorder? In its time, the 4-track revolutionized the music industry as much as the mouse revolutionized computers. The 4-track recorder made it possible to record four different instrument tracks one at a time, and play them back all mixed together. Eventually, 4-track recorders were replaced by 8-track recorders, and finally by digital recording.
