Tracking

I just read that drum tracking for Alter Bridge's fourth album is complete. But I'm not really sure what tracking means. Is it just a different way to say recording? If not, what does it mean?

Yes, it just means recording.

Yes it means recording. More specifically it refers to recording to any form of multi-tracking device for the purpose of being able to mix with better precision.

For future reference I believe this type of thread would be better suited for either the recording or possibly the bands & artist sub forums.

Also with drums, they often times use midi to track them out, so they may not even be "recorded" so to speak, but programmed. Just depends on the band.
