no i don't. as i don't tolerate people moaning about them but not accepting help. like you.3phase wrote:you tolerate crashbugs too.. that is your overly generous personality but wont change any rules regarding music production out there.
as said, not using presets myself, or samples, much, as i somehow consider it cheating. but i don't consider it lame, hearing all the non-lame creative stuff created out of it.as often with native social rules they are not easy to get for foreigners..
so people that are foreigners for electronic music production dont really see the specific rules in the beginning. They are not painted on the walls or printed in the manual.. its style specific aural traditions you only get when you are part of a musical scene.
Its funny that people so easy adapt to rules where to set breaks and how to make the xy style bla bla but are totaly ignorant for rules regarding coolness...
Just all justified by the goal to have a finsihed track with the most little personal effort.
Preset sounds.. preset arrangement ..preset style.. ?
when your music fits that description you know how to call it.
else, buying a Stradivarius would be considered lame, too. that's just using a preset, too.
