I'm blowing all of my close friends minds..."You can't do that on a phone can you?"
I love showing pessimists that there is way more to these contraptions than meets the eye. The way I do that is to push the limit at all times. I did that on desktops for years. People told me, VSTs will never replace synths. Computer hard disk recording is inferior to expensive tape machines and a studio, blah blah blah. Tell that to Skrillex or Dead Maus...
I hear the same naysaying bullshit with every new generation of tech. CDs will never replace vinyl, mp3s will never replace cds, I can't say I can totally predict the future, but I've learned to keep an open mind. I used to be like them, but about musicians. I was like Bon Jovi? They are no beatles or Led Zepplin…., Guns and Roses? a second rate Aerosmith, Poison, Motley Crue? They are never gonna make it. From those false predictions, I learned to keep my mouth shut and just pay attention...lol. Btw I like things about all those bands now....not that I'm a giant fan of even the classics...My favorite band of all time was first AC/DC, then Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, but most of all, King's X, after that Infected Mushroom are God's to me.I guess I should also mention Daft Punk and Crystal Method, but I digress.
This post is really about me expressing my thanks for this tech, for a new community I get to be a part of, for change after long periods of sameness and for some super cool people I've met here in a short period of time. There are so many brilliant minds here, all ultimately humble, but not afraid to be outspoken. I love it here, no matter how many suggestions and critiques I get. It all goes in the pot and I stew on it and decide what's good for me, but it still helps. Thank you folks, and thank you universe and people like Tesla, DaVinci , Bill Gates ...the creator of Audiobus, the many brilliant developers of IOS stuff and of course those two crazy Apple guys(Jobs and Wazniac, sorry for spelling) that are the reason I'm here today!
