It occurred to me while reading through some of the rants by users on this forum that we have become somewhat spoiled in a short period of time. Let’s take a look at where we used to be not too long ago…
The Beatles used 8 tracks to record some of their best stuff. 8. Lots of bouncing.
We used to have to buy MORE cables, MORE Patchbays, use MORE electricity if we wanted more tracks, busses, effects, etc.
Before I get off on my own rant, my point is that we have it pretty good by comparison in just a short period of time. The software engineers are trying desperately to rocket us ahead light years from where we’ve come. All these new features are really not necessary. They’re just icing on the the creative cake if you will. The most important thing is the music. I’ve heard some AMAZING demos on a 4 track analog tape recorder.
Don’t get me wrong. The tools we have are amazing and very helpful. I love them just like the next person.
Let’s use the tools we HAVE and stop griping about the tools we don’t. Making music IS the goal, after all
