Yes!

Spot on. This is also why I think your comment at the beginning of this thread, "by listening to your music i must doubt you really hear where analog takes its value from", is rather empty bickering in the end.

Loving music and expressing yourself with your chosen tools is a far superior notion than your, or my, or someone else's opinion on digital/analog. As you have pointed out, you have shunned pre-conceived standards and want to take your own path, so you should also beware (again, you wouldn't call it that, but I would) dictating just another standard by resorting to authorities when you want to demonstrate your own superiority. "There is enough people on the same side with me", "real pros", that's as empty talk as any.

As you're saying on page two "i really can´t waste more time with silly internet people", but you're still going on after hitting page thirteen, it speaks more loudly of your stature than such anecdotes.

Respectfully, you don't know my way to work.

In my personal and vain opinion, there are vast worlds of music to be explored and expressed in acoustic, electronic, and in the latter case both analog and purely digitally synthesized means (that is, sources which, by their nature, can't be realized using analog circuitry in the first place). Beautiful albums have been and will be released using every method conceivable, and combinations thereof. There's hell of a lot interesting digital stuff going on right now, and its musical uses are far more important and far reaching than petty bickering.

As for me, it was also great fun to confront your personal opinions, briefly, with my own - while the truth is most probably somewhere else to be found. Thanks, and take care.

I had an inkling this was the case the way you kept using the term "songwriting." That's very telling of a narrow pop-centric approach to creating music. Which is fine. I do plenty of that myself. But to talk about "songwriting" as if you're speaking of the end-all-be-all of musical creation is naïve at best.

no its naive to call pop the only way of songwriting. nearly every better track is somehow a song, though it often differs from pop music formatation and the very direct approach of that format. but i don´t see the point of what you try to say. maybe there is no.
