    Abstract

    The past twenty-five years has played host to a catalogue of changes within the recording industry. This study explores these changes from the point of view of both academics studying this area and industry professionals working in this area. Through the use of primary and secondary research, a clear view of each factor has been discovered. Firstly each factor is highlighted and explored through literature, these being; the economic state of the music industry, software developments and their availability, the ability to record at home and staffing within commercial recording studios. Then interviews are conducted based on the factors discovered in the literature. After gaining insight from both academics and industry professionals, factors are analysed, compared and discussed which leads on to conclude that the result is divided. The economic climate of the music industry is the factor which holds the widest influence over commercial recording studios. However, the workflow of commercial recording studios is most directly influenced by software developments and their availability and the ability to record at home.
