+1...and it is a kind of dumb question although there's no shortage of those around here (including from myself). Seriously, our laptops pack more power and audio quality than most of the best musicians ot the 20th century had available, it still comes down to your ears and your way of hearing music.dj superflat wrote:sorry, but it's actually a dumb question. people have made incredibly successful records on even the most basic technology. put another way, there's almost no recording technology you can name that someone hasn't made a seriously successful recording on, whether it's a cassette 4 track or a game boy or whatever. if someone's not successful at making professional/commercial music, the technology available to them is almost never to blame (talent finds a way around -- or, more often, to make use of -- whatever technological limitations it may face). so use whatever you like using and get to it, rather than worrying about whether the tools at your disposal are up to snuff.
word. It's like "well it's the only thing that will allow me to record a sound I make with a synth and play it back periodically in a track.." -erhm... no. In fact, that kind of 'tude should have a tax on it or something. Say the words "protools is the only way to work with any kind of audio" and immediately 10k$ will be deducted from your already over-inflated bank account.aqua_tek wrote:HA! most of the people i've met in NYC these past few months live by this mottoSpacerboy wrote:no way w/o protools ..
i dont really have anything against protools itself. just the closed-mindedness of many of its users
if someones got talent in producing music they will be able to use any of the industry standard software, take cars for example, if you have a mercedes but you cant drive it you will probably lose to a brilliant driver in a ford, when you race...Spacerboy wrote:no way w/o protools ..
ditto...see my signature. i've had national spots run where the editor just used the rough mp3 i sent via email.hat wrote:I have recorded at least a dozen tv commercial scores using only Ableton Live.
Furthermore, half of them were written, mixed, mastered and sent as mp3 to the client directly from a coffee shop with internet connection, I'm not even kidding.
So yeah, if there's any skepticism about Live being as "pro" as any other DAW, well think again. It's just a tool to record/arrange music.
So, if music is what you make, then music is what you will hear, no matter what you use.
I never realized this was a urban (or rural) legend, explains why they all live each day like it's their last, nothing to be anxious about.eggnchips wrote:Most equipment lists of signed up artists are as long as a welshman's bits.
