nice vst! downloading it soon as I get home, I used to do all this stuff manually with envelopes and using the track like a fourtrack player, rerecording, and getting the sounds I wanted and it was a huge huge pain. thanks

i think its not about opinion but more about financial capabilities. I would way rather use hardware because its a dedicated piece of machinery. I only use VST's because there cheap.

how well does everyone know how to play piano? sure we can all design cool sounds but when it all comes down to it we are all, with the exception of a few, making music on the keyboard. does everyone know their scales, chord patterns? how advanced in music theory are some of you? how does balancing between musicianship and craftsmanship work? sorry if this topic has already been brought up.

I took every music theory class at my college and almost got a scholarship to transfer to a university to be a music theory aid for undergrads. I took piano lessons for a long time (not as a forced kid, started when I was in high school because I really wanted to learn).

Honestly, I wrote nothing but classical music in high school and early college. You'd never know it, I'm some lame surfer bum from Cali, but that's just what I dug at the time. Music theory and piano have taken my music to fourteen new levels I would have never been able to achieve without it. Period. Anyone who hasn't taken piano lessons or music theory classes is missing out.

But fuck being a music major. You'll deal with nothing but pompous assholes and professors who want to pigeonhole you all day long. Not worth your fucking time.

Yeah I'm studying jazz.
I think it really helps my music creation a lot. For example when remixing, you can do a lot of crafty shit like playing stuff from different keys that still fits. If I didn't know my scales and modes, I'd spend forever trying to figure out what fucking key I'm in/what I should play next etc. It helps if you can play an instrument or have some musical background.
Nothing helps you make salty bass lines like jazz
Some of it doesn't transfer obviously. I can't ever remember hearing a tritone substitution in an electro banger, but I suppose it's possible.
I'm also into a lot of progressive metal stuff, so I know how to sneak a 7/8 polyrhythm into a song
