As sample libaries become increasingly realistic and computer-based music technology improves, music composition and production continues to move toward autonomy. One person can do everything -compose, arrange, play, record. Are works not as good as they could be because in many cases we no longer have live musicians, engineers, producers etc. adding their unique creativity to the mix - at least to the degree they use to?
Studies say the group produces a better end-product than the lone individual.
