Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. - Plato
Without music, life would be a mistake. - Friedrich Nietzsche
I love music.
I'm setting up my own studio and attempting to produce. This is more work than I thought it would be... but I can't stop trying.
8/5/2016 - Been thinking about this for literally months, trying to not have to do it, and finally after a chat with another music producer yesterday on the issues I have been having, I have decided to abandon Cubase as my Digital Audio Workstation, because it's given me no end of trouble and I feel like it's actively holding me back and hurting my ability to create music with its hardware compatibility problems, built in limitations, and overall lack of features. On his advice, and because it's payday, I also just threw down for a copy of FL Studio Producer Edition. Let's hope this was a good choice.
10/30/2016 - Good progress.
4/1/2017 - Invest in a good DAW. Pay for it. Just do it.
I listen to everything.
For Programming: Melodic Dub-step works best. Try it.
