Microcomputers with magnetic disk drive storage systems have evolved to the point where significant quantities of digital audio material can be recorded onto floppy disks. Methods for recording PCM 16 bit linear, as well as various reduced data formats, have been developed and tested. Some of these formats are suitable for real time recording and playback. Others are non-real time methods appropriate for archival storage and retrieval. Both the hardware and software aspects of these systems are described. Presently working, and proposed standard formats of floppy disk audio are discussed.
