The 1990s have seen the largest increase in the music industry. With the invention of the compact disc, or CD, music is much more portable. The CD is a lot smaller and lighter than a vinyl record or cassette. CD’s are also much more durable than their counterparts. Unlike vinyl records and cassettes, the sound quality will not fade over time. The price of CD players has dropped over the years and can now be found just about everywhere.
Now people are able to convert their music into a file on their computer. This breakthrough has made it possible to download music quickly. Computer users are also able to distribute and share their music files. By sharing music files, consumers are able to learn about new bands and meet others who share their love of music.
With today’s technology, the opportunities seem endless. Fans, record producers and artists can all benefit from the endless possibilities of the technology. However, it is very important that the music producers are not taken advantage of. By taking advantage to the artists and producers, it could limit the future of creativity.
Independent musicians have felt the largest impact of music through the internet. Distribution and production of music has been solely dominated by the recording industry for many years. Now, the largest record companies are trying to integrate the Internet with the distribution process. The one thing holding them back is security.
No matter how secure music files are, they are vulnerable on the Internet. Therefore, there is a need to move away from selling music on the Internet in MP3 form or compact disc to creating communities with like interest to give their audience music for free.
