We are only just beginning to realise the true dawn of the DAW and it's true potential, although many of these programmes have been around for a couple of decades or so, very few people could really challenge/ push a conventional recording studio production. Dance music of the eighties from a production craft, stand point, doesn't come even slightly close to what's available and achievable today, I'm not sure if today's dance genres will seem so embryonic 25 years from now, the strength of today's internet has played a pretty integral part in speeding along production evolution, new ideas, innovative techniques and instrument evolutions. One thing which you can bet your house on is that Software technologies of the future will be as important as the electric guitar was to the 60's and equally as influential as Synthesizers were upon 80's synth pop. Today's arsenal of instruments and unusual sounds available to home composers means classical music is far more relevant nowadays, than it has been in any of last fifty years or so. Expect more and more orchestral influence/ fusion within more mainstream genre's.
