The Difference Between Analog Recorder And Digital Recorder

- Sep 21, 2018-

The analog tape recorder is a device that performs recording and playback using analog electronic technology. It is an electromechanical combination device and is essentially an electromagnetic or magnetoelectric transducer.

The digital recorders are devices that use digital technology to record and play audio signals. Unlike analog recording, digital recording records digital signals. In the process of recording, the audio signal is first converted into a corresponding digital signal by a sampler and an analog-to-digital converter. The digital signal is encoded and recorded on the magnetic tape through a recording head. At the time of playback, the encoded signal recorded on the magnetic tape is removed by the reproducing head, decoded to become a digital signal, converted into an audio signal by a digital-to-analog converter, and smoothed and output by a low-pass filter.
