The digital era swept away the need for any physical medium for recorded music. Music and mixes can now, and often do, exist soley as digital creations. No analog synths, drum machines, turntables, mixers, or CDs (much less vinyl records or cassettes) are necessary to producing, recording, or sharing electronic music. We live in the digital age and like anything, this new reality has its upsides and downsides. Its major downside, from my perspective, is the degradation of sound quality. So much sonic atmosphere and content is missing from an mp3; it's sad to consider all the people now accustomed to substandard audio. On the other hand, the digital medium makes music widely accessible and affordable. Live mixes can be shared with ease and without negative environmental impact - the treehugger in me smiles broadly at that!
