If songwriting and production really is so easy, why the heck do so many people with the same resources suck so badly?
When you write a part that's played by a virtual instrument, it's the same as writing a part that's played by a real one. Creativity is creativity. Tools are tools. But put an amazing producer behind an untalented artist, they'll make them look way better than they are, for sure.
I love being a producer because... why just control one or two instruments at a time, when I can command an entire orchestra? Production is the power of bringing your exact vision to life, for those like me, who don't have a lot of resources.
I've come across so many of these delusional stupidheads that think they're music elitists. They think they are better because they don't use computers, but guess what? A shitton of these great music producers out there are actually great musicians and songwriters. Take away their computers and they'd STILL murder you, by far, with their skills and vision... AND instrument playing.
-love, the producer who also
writes, sings, and plays instruments
and does a bunch of other things pretty well
(It was the comments on that video that bugged me. Lol.)
