ADAT机器是用数字音频记录格式创建的。这是以专业摄影棚市场为目标而制作的。 ADAT有能力录制多达8首曲目。这最初创建于1992年。目前，2轨DAT机器非常昂贵。 ADAT基于可承受性成功。录音机在记录媒体内使用了S-VHS录像带。这最初是为了使用模拟视频录制，但它们被认为是ADAT的理想选择。第一代ADAT录像机被称为“Blackface”。这已经记录了每个采样16位。后代支持每个样本20个buts，但是它们与第一代的记录向后兼容。 ADAT已于2003年停产，ADAT HD24等新版本则是从基于硬盘的记录仪开发的。尽管ADAT机器有许多优点，但在实施过程中也发现了一些问题或差距。 ADAT有一些软件错误，使声音问题显得突出。声音混合的问题，有时这些问题造成的错误更为突出。这台机器出现故障，因为这些声音和一些声音都减少了。这些让制片人变得疯狂，他们已经支持了两三次。该工具对于创作专辑具有特殊意义。这是因为为专辑创建的音乐只是通过最少的编辑进行录制。歌曲的创作也以快速的方式完成（Shuker，2016）。这些创造了歌曲的人物角色并设定了专辑的心情。该工具是歌曲获得优先权的一个不可或缺的元素。在这个模式中，Ballard使用的这种技术逐渐转变为其他类型的音乐。有能力通过数字音频工作站（DAW）和软件的出现来调节人声。这些让人们寻找替代技术。鉴于ADAT机器的限制，音乐编辑的可能性降低了。这个过程被作曲家用来为专辑创建歌曲的概念。
ADAT machines were created with the digital audio recording format. This was created with the aim at professional studio market. The ADAT had the ability to record up to 8 tracks. This was originally created in 1992. At this time, the 2 track DAT machines were very expensive. ADAT was successful based on the affordability. The recorder used the S-VHS cassette within the recording medium. This was originally intended for the use of the analogue video recording however they were deemed to be ideal for the ADAT. The 1st generation ADAT recorders were known as ‘Blackface’. This had recorded 16 bits per sample. The later generations supported 20 buts per sample however they were backward compatible with the recordings from the 1st generation. The ADAT has been discontinued in 2003 and newer versions such as ADAT HD24 are developed from the hard-drive based recorder. Even though there were many benefits that were developed from the ADAT machines, it was observed some issues or gaps in implementation as well. The ADAT has some software bugs that make the issues of sound seem prominent. The issues in mixing of the sound and sometimes these issues created the error were even more prominent. The machine was faulty in the sense where the songs and some bits of the sound were reduced. These made the producers mad and they had backed up two or three times. The tool had special significance for the creation of the album. This was owing to the fact that the music that was created for the album was simply recorded with minimal editing. The creation of the songs was also done in a fast manner (Shuker, 2016). These had created the persona for the song and set the mood of the album. The tool was an integral element for the song to gain precedence. In this schema, this technology that was used by Ballard was gradually changed to other kinds of music. There was the ability to tune up the vocals with the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and the advent of software. These made the people to look for alterative technology. Given the limitation of the ADAT machines, the possibility of the music being edited was reduced. This process was used by the composer to create the notion of song for the album.
