The last 20 years have witnessed significant changes in the audio industry. The analog to digital evolution coupled with the rise of the digital work station and the decline of the large format recording console has dramatically effected the chain of audio recording. Smaller rooms equipped with sophisticated sound processing software packages such as plug-ins, loops, editing, and special effects have changed the way music is created, recorded, and mixed.

The recording studio is in a rapid state of transition. Renown facilities responsible for the recording of countless gold and platinum albums have disappeared from the scene, replaced by small project studios and DAWS.

Our esteemed panel of audio practitioners who have witnessed this change will comment and focus on their particular role in addressing the past, present, and next generation.
