Indeed we were surrendering to the limitations of technology during the 1960s.

Speaking for myself as a certified grumpy old man, I have been profoundly disappointed by the creative results of the affordable recording technology revolution that began in the 1970s and continues today. Certainly we have evolved a marvelous sketchpad for songwriters but the real creative action seems to be on stage. Perhaps this is because of the discipline that is still required there. It's why I honestly believe the next big thing is going to happen on stage first. We are way overdue for a musical Harry Potter.
