CD burning - multiple drives at once

Wouldn't starting multiple instances of cdrecord be a really bad way of
using multiple CD drives at once? Because I'd be thinking that every
instance of cdrecord would be accessing the hard disk at different
places and you'd be quickly limited by how fast your hard disk is.

There are a few windows programs that support multiple burners at once
but prices start at $450, so I'm thinking it has to be a little
different that opening a burning program more than once.  You'd want to
hope so anyway :-)

I imagine that just starting multiple instances of cdrecord would work.
If you're using ATAPI burners you'll want them on different channels
