A method of recording in which the instruments and vocals are mixed and recorded directly onto a stereo half-track or DAT. If analog, no further changes or remixing is possible. The fidelity, edibility, and relatively low-cost of direct-to-two-track digital recording has revived the popularity of this medium for making master tapes, especially those intended for release on CDs.

Also called live-to-two-track.
