Yesterday, while preparing a new project, I stumbled upon a remix I worked on last year. I created it because a friend asked me to; there wasn’t any other real reason. It wasn’t a remix of his music (although I am helping to produce an EP for his band currently), rather it was a song that he liked that he felt needed a remix.
Today I worked on a quick mix for some singer-songwriter stuff I recorded a while ago. I’m sure you all know about Waves plugins. Well, what you may not know is that they have new plugins for people who don’t know what plugins to use.
These days, web technologists seem to be hyped up about “computing in the cloud”. The main idea of it is that we will only have devices that allow us to access the internet, and all our applications and files will be stored and processed in a giant rack of servers online.
Remember when I said that I’d learn how to use Ableton Live by doing a mash-up that I’d already done in Logic? Well this weekend I sat down with Ableton and warped some tracks. I liked how easy warping was to perform in Ableton (I haven’t yet installed Logic 9 to try the Flextime as a comparison).
While the staggering rate of evolution and revolution in computer-based music tools has allowed users to do more things, and faster than ever, one of the problems is too much choice. You would think that choice is a good thing, and to a certain degree it is; however, too many options can cause paralysis.
