The entertainment industry has experienced productive as well as disruptive changes over the past decade due to the Internet’s increasing popularity and connection speeds. As profitability decreases due to consumers’ increasing expectations that digital content should be free, production costs must be lowered for high quality to be maintained. In an effort to maintain the quality that consumers expect, can the recent abundance of personal recording studios be used to manage costs in professional media production? The decreasing costs of owning a personal studio, combined with the increasing number of people being educated in audio production, has created an industry saturated with young, willing individuals who can provide major media companies with the skilled labor necessary to maintain high standards of quality. Producers of film, television, music, or any other professional content could outsource tasks to upcoming audio engineers for a better value compared with owning or renting large, costly, commercial facilities, but so far, nothing enables such a model to work efficiently. This thesis proposes the requirements of such a mechanism for expanding the possibilities of collaborative audio production and how it could be implemented as an online application and community.
