Do you spend more time making music or on the inter-webz?

Post by Theo Void » Tue May 10, 2011 2:15 pm

That's the question. To narrow it down even further, do you spend more time lurking the Live forums or actually creating music? :?

The only time I'm ever on this forum is usually when I'm at work or when I'm watching TV with my lady. As soon as I sit down at my machine to make my music, that's all I do.

Overall, probably web since I'm online for 8-10hrs a day at work.

Whenever I'm at home I'm usually at my computer, and whenever I'm at my computer I pretty much always have Ableton open with a project/idea I'm futzing around with, and then go about internet-y business in between tracking/tweaking/playing with Live.

Lots of times I'll have a synth track armed and be playing my MIDI keyboard with my left hand while I'm clicking and scrolling with my right. Have come up with a few seriously inspired melodies/loops this way, not to mention gotten more left-hand dexterity on the keys.

yeah. i've started multi tasking too, especially when working on a mix. things that need fixing tend to jump out a lot more when your attention is divided between the music and the web.
