I admit this post is useless but since I didn't had the "VST not in ProT" I was sure to receive, tha?ks to you all musicians :wink:

BTW great news I'm free from the kb+mouse torture I managed an iPad 4 and despite the need ro "control" more than touch a screen, dudes, I feel like a returned from the death electronic musician.

Not as good feeling than a legacy Lemur from JazzMutant but wow, just with that and playing something REC ON without failing is at last possible.

Good evening to all, wanted to share these pain relief feelings.

Kind regards.

Composer. I'm a good composer, OK musician, mediocre producer.

alltomorrowsparties wrote:For me the whole process of production/composition/ follows a set of tasks from 'most creative' to 'most scientific'

1-Initial writing (most creative)
2-Initial recording (scratch tracks, rough arrangement ideas)
3- Arranging (expanding on ideas in step 2)
4-Mixing (i break this down into 2 steps-step 1 is more creative playing with fx/ambience/distortion n stuff, step 2 is more scientific...using eq to ensure everything fits
5-Mastering (most scientific)

Bout midway through 4, is where the more rational side begins to take over
lovely as I'm close to this perhaps . . .

think of me-self as more composer first - then musician(laboring) - at the end producing('cause I have to get it out there)

...all i ever wanted to be was...a recording and performing artist....

after twenty years of doing so, i've been not only that but all that was mentioned here, i'm afraid.....
no way around these days, i guess....

the deepest valley in my career so far was....a comercial spot for cat toilets....
and that was not before but after a complete orchestra was playin my shit....your music might have no dynamics left, your life as a musician surely has.....

been rich, been poor, been everything....

Faithful alcohol abuser and US&A lover here...
Music fills all gaps in between those activities...

"To produce music" expression describes perfectly the soullessness of modern society with it's creations...
It has it's roots in the capitalistic attitude turning all around us in to a commodity.
Because everything you do due to capitalism has it's price therefore all morons don't "create" anything" - they "produce". Put then the pricetag on your excrements suckers! And eat shit!

Music is supposed to be shared for free. It should be experienced for free as (so long...) fresh air and the daylight.
There are few which understand that and give away (share) their own creations and perform live for free - because of reigning monetarism though still accepting voluntarily paid fees (paid "as you wish")...
I hope we will someday develop as human beings (evolve) and we will get rid of that monetaristic idiocy.

Yeah, or you could say production is just making stuff.

Reclaim the word production from the capitalist pigs!

since i've composed, performed, produced, engineered, argued with myself, and got wasted all without getting out of my chair i'd say i'm DAW user and leave it at that.
