I’m looking for some advice/ a place to vent/ creative feedback on this.
I find my music making will split into either concentrating on the sound or the sequence. I will write and sequence MIDI in an complex song based way, or spend a long time creating a sound, but never seem to join the two up.
I can fall into a rabbit hole of Max patches/Ableton set ups, or I can just record stereo out and go for it…
Both ways makes me feel as if there is something lacking either sonically or structurally, but perhaps that’s comparing myself to professional musicians, I have very little free time and can only spend a few hours a week.
Its a fallacy pushed by technology firms that the next bit of gear will be the one that inspires you, and I don’t feel I need anything more in my set up… just a new workflow or some way to structure things better.
Sure I’d love a Grid128, Beatstep Pro, Earthsea, Ableton Push etc. but it’d not solve the issue, just delay it.
anyone else have any thoughts? tips? experiences of this?
