This panel discussion is focused on how new audio technology can make music creation more accessible to all of us.

We will provide perspective on the barriers that music creators at all levels are currently facing and how to keep them in the creative flow. Panelists will also share their best thinking on the trends that they see in music creation / tooling for musicians.
