The Rise of the Musician Entrepreneur with Doug Rogers of EastWest

This week on the Sound Business Podcast, we're interviewing the brilliant Doug Rogers!

Doug Rogers is the founder and CEO of EastWest, one of the largest virtual instrument companies in the world. Their plug-ins have given musicians of all sorts access to higher-quality, incredibly well-produced sounds at a moment's notice.

If you're a composer of any sort, odds are you've used or lusted after the products that EastWest makes, and if you've watched a movie, played a game, or listened to any music at all in the passed couple decades, you've absolutely heard EastWest's virtual instruments at work.

In this interview we talk about how EastWest came to be a dominant force in the music industry, their philosophy when it comes to making new products, how Doug and his team make sure what they do will succeed over the long term, and so much more.
