hahahaa, who says all musicians you listed are normal? who says what is normal and what is not?

you CAN get a song finished on Live. just stay focused. imagine you are in a band, you record every instrument track. that helps me.

the problem with live (the problem of making music on your own) is that you start playing with the instruments, tweaking and procrastinate a lot, so you dont get your stuff done.

because weird people make weird music.

Live would attract people who want more than just a traditional DAW, Live is a weird tool and let's people do weird things.

weird question.

Dear God no.

Look at the first post - it's just some cunt insulting Dave Hill without even putting his arse on the line.

Insulting people on the internet is one thing but doing it anonymously, that's just sad!
Suit #1: I mean, have you got any insight as to why a bright boy like this would jeopardize the lives of millions?
Suit #2: No, sir, he says he does this sort of thing for fun.

Someone who cites Paris & San Francisco as his location should probably not call other people fags :wink:
