With the development of technology and new genres of music, we can notice that the technology of the digital age has changed the way we create, process and use music, making it more reachable for the masses. The authors can create easily and quickly, without the need of having real and expensive instruments. People who use music have many opportunities such as easier access and different ways of sharing. First of all, the role of technology in music is explained through a brief historical overview, all the way from the gramophone as the first way of recording music information, to the digital recordings stored in the MP3 format. The paper presents and explains various programs for the digital processing of notes from sheet music, as well as programs that facilitate learning, creating, editing, and listening to music, which was once unthinkable, but today quite usual. Several recording programs were compared, so that similarities and differences in specifications were highlighted. Also, representations of the sound track were analyzed in a variety of programs that provide a visual representation to the user, whether they are an amateur or a professional musicologist. The importance of copyright, the impact of social networks on digital distribution and the possibility of direct communication between author and their listeners was also ephasized.
