Yeah... My point was that the convenience makes people lazy instead of trying to figure something out and create something with their own technique and improve. Otherwise where would you say the laziness comes from...? I'm not saying you can't get good sounding product from these tools- but I don't agree that this specific method needs to be embraced as a standard means of creating and recording music. Or at least see why it's so relevant that it deserves an entire sponsored lecture. I just have a hard time seeing the individuality in that, personally. I admit I do have kind of a bitter biased opinion- but I live in a city where this is looked at the only sound for music here as far as youth is concerned. They'll get a cracked version of Cubase/SD2/PODFarm and stay in that bracket. I'll be stoked off a video that shows young people how to work with what they have and get good product. Small room, low ceilings, neighbors... There are a few forum members that actually started doing that on here. Take it as a close-minded opinion or not dude, I'm not the only one who disagrees with it as a sole means to record and work from home.
