Professional audio production is one of the most digitally-oriented creative careers in the world. These days, digital audio workstations and computer software have largely displaced the hardware mixers, synths and sequencers of the past. We still rely on analog signals from the microphone in recording and to the speakers during playback, however, which means that audio converters are an important part of any studio. These work like translators, changing analog signals to digital ones (or vice-versa) to allow analog and digital components to communicate with each other.
Any all-in-one recording device will have its own built-in analog-to-digital converters, and any hardware that plays digital recordings has its own digital-to-analog converters. The catch with these integrated converters is that they're a compromise, made as compact as possible so that they'll fit into the equipment. For general-purpose recording and playback, that's fine—but for professional studio use, where you need the absolute highest sound quality, there's no substitute for a dedicated converter.
