The growing digitization of instruments

Digitization is playing an important role in the media & entertainment industry. The music industry has evolved over time with several emerging technological advancements. Digitization has changed the way how music is recorded, edited, and shared. Professionals have switched from analog audio production to digital audio production, as it provides several advantages over analog audio production. More and more musical instruments are being digitized. These virtual instruments are cost-effective and offer the best experience to musicians. Users can play thousands of different virtual instruments through a single platform.

Increasing adoption of cloud-based digital audio workstations

Vendors are increasingly offering cloud-based deployment for digital audio workstation solutions. Cloud-based deployment of digital audio workstations has many advantages such as easy integration, better scalability, cost-effectiveness, and fewer technical issues over on-premises deployment. Cloud is encouraging emerging small-scale music producing companies to utilize digital audio workstation, which help them back their music securely on the cloud at a reasonable price, as they only pay for the resources they use.
