analog recording



  • noun the storing of signals in their natural form without conversion to digital form


  • recording in which a continuous and infinitely variable input signal is converted into an analogous signal, such as that stored by the patterns of magnetization on a magnetic tape. Each time processing or copying takes place, there is a degradation of the signal. To eliminate this problem, a signal must be converted into digital format.
