Technological development in the recent times has affected every imaginable aspect of life. Music is no exception. Technology is changing the way music is created as well as listened to. Let’s look at some of the most striking changes technology has brought to the world of music and musical instruments. 

Digital software 

Digital software makes it possible for anyone to record and produce professional quality songs and music from anywhere – without a recording studio. You can edit the music and add interesting effects using tools and plugins from https://audiogeargeek.com/. Many popular musicians of today have begun their music careers by using this technology. 

Modular synthesizers 

These were originally made to imitate orchestra. However, being too big and expensive it was hard to take them to the musical concert venues. Modern synthesizers are small and inexpensive. They allow musicians to be more innovative and produce sounds completely unheard of and impossible to create by any traditional musical instrument. 

Multitrack recording 

Although it is a common feature of today’s recording process it has brought about a huge change in the way music is created. It allows recording of separate parts of music or song and them combine them to form a complete piece. You can also tweak a song at any section and many layers of music can be combined together. 

Auto tune 

This has been a boon for singers who want their audience to hear their perfect voices. Autotune allows tweaking the voice of a singer that has gone slightly off-pitch. The tweaking is often subtle. Some musicians use it to exaggerate their voices and create a unique form of music. 

MIDI 

Musical Instrument Digital Interface, short-form MIDI,allows musicians the ability to play a number of instruments at the same time. 

Although some complain that technology has diminished the originality of music it also has enhanced and broadened the horizons of music and musical instruments.
