That does sound a bit confusing, doesn't it.  If a person is
recording one part of a performance (e.g. guitar) along with a
recording of other people (e.g. piano), then they'll need to hear
the playback while they're recording.  Moving audio around during
a tracking session doesn't sound fun.  One wouldn't have to be a
purist about this.  It'd probably be fine to have the guitarist
hear they're just recorded track playing back on the same drive
where they'll be recoding overdubs.

Certainly separating audio files and system (OS) files onto
separated disks would be good.
