Yes. It’s about MAKING music. Not about using things that “DO” music for you.
How many tools don’t you need before deciding that they don’t work and you need a newer one?
All the Cubase users producing great music are probably still using SX on XP and still getting things done.
Well, no. That’s naughty of me. My friends who do write great music do use v6 but ask, like normal folk, about the new version when it arrives and not two years before.
The funny thing is that: The more pro the projects and people involved is (think among the best), the less they need all the bells and wistles asked for on this forum. Like timestreching her, there and everywhere. All that offline processing, and fixing everything recorded down to every beat.
They just work hard (on songs and arr) and play good enough to make it as good as it needs to be. From there mixing is a breeze.
The top notch producers/mixers will not touch most of the badly edited and timestretched drums that comes out of lesser than good project studios.
I get into trouble for just hinting at this.
They get it, they test it and they either use it or leave it out to save time and sanity. The less titting about the better.
If it needs all that attention in the first place how bad is the recording?
What? Does that mean no virtual fan base, fan club, mosh pit, tour bus, beer stains, overdoses, postum cult following and ridiculously over sized mausoleum with ledgers and 3D cinema, pop corn and bubbly beverages and merchandise ranging from badges to blimps. None of it??? That’s it!!! I’m going Sonar!
