Over the years we have seen the prices of music equipment become cheaper and cheaper while products become better and better. Once the personal computer became the main brain of the studio this changed everything. In addition, going from analog to digital made the playing field even and gave hope to music producers who had dreams of making their own music. Now and days you have young producers coming up using software like Fruity Loops producing hits for artist. Who would have thought that a person sitting in the middle of America or in China could make a beat in their bedroom that could change the music world. I think that is great for music but some people think that the cheap prices of equipment and software hurt the music.

The soft synth instruments have changed the game dramatically who would have thought you can make a beat that sounds like a full fledge
