but that demands user's discipline. and are musicians disciplined?
If you are a musician of a decent calibre I would say yes, you need to be disciplined, at least in your craft. But many people I know use the term musician rather loosely. Stringing together a bunch of loops or .wav files (particularly created by someone else or lifted from a recording made by someone else) doesn't qualify as a "real musician". Real musicians can actually play an instrument. Disc jockies don't count as musicians in my opinion. The definition of a disc jockey is someone who plays other people's music. Just in case that upsets some of you, which it probably will, then I don't care. Should I get any abuse for writing what I just did, I can assure you it will like water off a duck's back.
Oh yeah. I have always believed that this forum needs to be more organised into sub sections like off topic, hardware related, software issues etc... As I have written many times before, there is a load of total nonsense here, arrogant and rude people and a lot of childish bickering. It's getting ludicrous.
But hey, that's my opinion.
It depends how skillful they are always and on your definition of instrument
IMO an instrument is anything at all somebody can use to create music, and a musician is somebody who can make music
of course there are different skill levels like a white belt at kung-fu is not the same as a black belt
but if you're arguing semantics about the definition of a real "musician" then frankly you're wrong, but i dont disagree with the sentiment - to compare andre segovia with Bill the 14 YO Garageband user is idiotic, but both of them are still musicians, they are just at different levels
and as for splitting the forum into all those sections, as I've said a thousand times before every few days when this topic comes up, all the forums I've been to that are split up like that are boring as shit because they are hard to navigate around and there is no "hub" of communication, so I never go back to them.
Like I said earlier, use the "view posts since last visit" and a tabbed browser and you might be surprised at how easy it is to ignore the crap
then you might also be equally surprised to find that you are actually clicking on the threads that irritate you and that's how you know about them
if you really didnt want to know you wouldnt click on them
