With DAW's and iPad/iPhone apps becoming simpler......

and complex music becoming easier to make, where is the direction of music headed?

With every major update to Live, logic, or whatever....it seems that the last "trick" that was for the experts, is now done with the click of a button!

The New iPad garageband is only 4.99! And it is a pretty good app! I say in about two or three years, the quality of the sounds from the iPad/iPhone are going to match what any studio puts out. What will happen then? When the power of a entire studio is in the hands of every person that cares to want it?

The new pop smash that Gaga put out? 4th graders are making remixes of it during nap time!
Actual guitar/piano players are being replaced by automated algorithmic equations that are packaged in a tidy App, making children sound like mini-mozarts and small otmar lieberts!

What say you community? What say you?!

It takes more than tools to make a good track.

Styles change, standards rise. The cream always rises to the top.
