Digital vs Analog - please shut this debate down and make music.
Not here to debate software vs hardware but to discredit the capability to produce amazing music with software because the user was not successful is a bunch of bullshit.
Seems to be the new theme for major producers of EDM is to bitch and moan about how music software is too readily too available for anyone to make music. And now even Daft Punk is jumping on the bandwagon.
“We really felt that the computers are not really music instruments, and we were not able to express ourselves using a laptop. We tried, but were not successful.
The problem with the way to make music today, these are turnkey systems; they come with preset banks and sounds. They’re not inviting you to challenge the systems themselves, or giving you the ability to showcase your personality, individuality.” - Daft Punk
That’s such a load of bullshit. Just like any software preloaded with banks of sounds, hardware is also loaded with presets. It’s up to you to create your own patches or use a preset.
I remember a while back, probably in 2004, when the chemical brothers purposely mixed down their entire album in Acid instead of protools just to prove that its not the software that makes the song sound amazing, it’s how you use it.
