Hi guys, I'm on holidays and it's kinda boring here today, so my mind went wandering in the "audio world" and came back with a question for you all: do you think using templates is a good thing? Is it really necessary? What are the benefits and the downsides of it? My personal POV is that templates may be a good way to start things up, but still shouldn't be used everytime, expecially templates like KPA or Axefx's and guitars/bass sounds in general, those are the templates that are the most dangerous IMO! Laziness may prevail and taking the shortcut may end up (as it already did) creating an army of cloned productions, and that's what I despise in the so called "modern metal". What do you think?
