Not long ago, high-quality recordings weren't something musicians could just produce on their own own. You'd have in order to save up or find label support to pay for studio period in New York as well as other major city. There were always exceptions, of course, but for a long period, it was unheard of that you may produce great sounding music in your own. Home studio equipment simply wasn't affordable or widely available. That has evolved now. While major recording studios still thrive, how much home studios today vastly outnumbers these pillars of the younger industry. From production to distribution, many musicians are handling every facet of their business independently, saving time and money, and learning useful transferable skills over the way.
