Pro Tools has made Rolling Stone’s list of 24 inventions that changed music.
Some believe that Pro Tools was a force for good and others think Pro Tools killed recording studios, but whichever side of the fence you are on there is no doubt that Pro Tools has made a significant impact on the music making landscape. Pro Tools is now ubiquitous when referring to DAWs, in much the same way that iPods are often an expression used for MP3 players.
There are plenty more on the list including the Akai S900, Autotune and Garageband, although we’re not quite sure how seriously one can take a list like this when both the banjo and accordian are excluded - do these people know nothing about music?
