While attending college, I worked part-time at a local recording studio to maintain my serious interest in the music industry. Since you’re reading this article in a publication unrelated to the music industry, it is easy to conclude that I parted ways with music since that time (well, aside from the creation of what I feel are some pretty impressive Spotify playlists).
Some of my friends still work and thrive in the music industry, and it’s impressive to hear how things have changed over the years, especially on the recording side of the spectrum. The industry has continued to innovate, mostly because product manufacturers listened to feedback provided by those who depend on such tooling to create their art. This is no different than working in the tech industry today. Getting and listening to user feedback is critical to successful tech products.
