This chapter discusses the impact of digital technology on the use of electronic amplification for concerts of popular music (live sound). In general, digital technology has taken over the processes that were done by analog technology in the not-so-distant past, with the exception of very specific tricks such as real-time pitch correction and the Cher effect. Moving through a macro-perspective, the Internet has had a profound influence on live music as a revenue stream, and employing a close perspective on the technology in use, the argument is presented that the changes to musical practice have been less profound.
