ABSTRACT
The article discusses that as with the music industry doomsday scenarios of two years ago, the carping and kvetching about quality is not without some justification--but neither is it a true crisis, nor even a radical departure from historical precedent. One reason things look so bleak to so many in the field is that to a large degree, much of what people do is an adjunct to the record business, and that industry has been going through strange and depressing times for at least a decade, with no end in sight. Record companies know that studios are struggling to find business and are forcing recording rates to go lower and demanding that projects be completed more quickly, quality be damned.
