It was only 30 years ago when an artist had to rent a studio in order to even record a demo, much less a professional recorded album. It was expensive as studio time costs a lot of money (mainly to pay the engineer and other employees). The studio also included the analog recording system, which brought the price high.
If an artist wanted to record in those days they had to either rent a studio or own these expensive and rather large equipment. For the independent artist who had barely enough money to pay the rent or the bills it was extremely impossible for them to even get one song out.
Let’s now fast forward to 2014. We now are living in the digital world. Desktop computers has made work faster, but also cost effective in creating music. An independent artist who wants to share their music, perform, create an album or have a download has now more advantages than ever. It is cost effective to have a project studio with a computer, a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), a microphone, and a MIDI Controller. All of these equipment would cost less than $2000 to own. Many Project Studios are also in personal homes. Creating a space where it is sound proof with the computer, audio interface, microphones, and MIDI Controller makes it possible for the independent artist (or even the music hobbyist) to have a professional quality recording in a matter of weeks.
There is a lot of criticism regarding digital and computer environments, however in the modern world these tools have made it possible for anyone to be able to work in their dreams, Music Industry or not.
