And my point is just because you can plug a bunch of # in, push one key, and hit the arpeggiatte button, it doesn't make you a musician.
Electronica has been around for 3 decades. I'm not gonna change my opinion about it. If anything, it is even more skilless than it was. At least
years ago you needed to have some musical ability. If you couldn't play a keyboard or program, or both, you were screwed. Not so anymore. @ grand
will buy you a nice little set up, rtfm, and away you go. I know. I have all the gear in my studio. I use it for traditional, and "electronic" music
(I can't afford the london sympony, so I fake it). Can I play cello or violin?
Don't know, never tried. But i understand music, so I can write and step input notes into my sequencer to "play" those instruments for me. It's
cheating, plain and simple. If I need guitar or bass, I actually play it, becuase, I am a "musician", and it a hundred times easier for me to play
those parts rather than program them.
22 years of practice.
Guitar and bass proficiency=22 years of practice.
programming a step input=20 minutes searching through pdf files in the manual.
That's the point, I don't care what freq it's in.
