  1. I am new to the whole daws thing, I was using midi and stacks of synths in the 80s. Last 3 yrs had to work with music apps on my phone. I’m a bit of a living fossil as far as computers are concerned tho. Still liked my old cassette 4trk, straight forward. never lost anything ya feel me ? I generally like all music, unless it sounds like the sequencer is on autopilot because ya don’t really play. so right now just using mics in laptop and using music apps in phone as my instruments through blue tooth speakers. actually getting really good results. Test driving different daws, big learning curve for me, seq. in keyboards easier to use. but your videos have been very helpful in the maze of gadgets & wutcha ma jiggers. Music is my life, but I only need to play for myself and if others like it great, but I really couldn’t care less about the sheltered myopic visions of the masses, ill keep watching , keep posting!
