Within a very short time a DAW will probably look like a control surface. The point of a console from its very beginning in sound systems during the first decade of the 20th century has always been not needing to look at the controls. That ergonomic requirement hasn't changed. It's like Skype running on a desktop vs. an iPhone. I don't think it's any accident that Yamaha bought Steinberg or Avid bought Euphonix.

Meanwhile Apple and mickey$oft are both hell bent in the direction of battery-powered web browsers. I don't think scientific workstations are going anywhere but mass-produced high-powered desktops and parts will be history just as soon as the first stand-alone game machine actually outperforms everything else.

That does still leave interesting problem solving though as many people run more than one daw, run "non daw" audio software, still need browser/Internet capability, still need some sort of hard drive as our Internet infrastructure (U.S.) could in no way universally support full online up and download speeds not including outages or considering samples-loops. Our internet infrastructure will be our bottle neck and biggest sort of holdback for generations to come. There is a lot of interesting needs to fill to move away from what we refer to as a modern desktop. I also think that at any time Microsoft wanted they could make the Xbox a more powerful gaming machine than any computer on the market, it's just cost prohibitive for the mass market and no real need.

I think it will all be connected by high speed Ethernet both local and remote. The next revolution on the horizon is storage that's fast enough to replace the need for ram buffers. That's probably a lot of why the push to make everything 64 bit.

We still have the distance limitations (1000') of Ethernet which could be resolved via fiber or copper trunk lines though this is all only "in plant" situations and media converters and fiber installs get expensive! But also not really an issue for us in smaller places.

Drive wise we definitely have that already in things like M.2/Pcie drives. The cost effectiveness of it what we are waiting for!!! I am sure the next 3-4 years they will become more affordable. I now just visualize tiny M.2 enclosures dangling off Macs
