Music production is so much more rewarding than I realized. It brings into sharp focus the energy and optimism I have inside my own head. That energy and hope are what motivate me to keep doing what I do. It’s what gets me up in the morning. It’s what gives me the passion I have to write for new projects that I never had the chance to play in front of anyone else. If my voice can entertain and inspire millions of people over the course of six months or a full year, I don’t care who they are, it’s a success. It’s more than an opportunity for me; it’s more than a career. It’s my calling.
Audio plugins are necessary to minimize latency, without losing the aspect of playing at 44.1K. A video plugin will often be available at launch time, but you can take advantage of various hw limitations in many games at the time of writing.
Ableton is well known for “musical” interfaces, and perhaps its only glaring flaw is that there isn’t much structure for its presets. Having your favorite sounds come in is great when you know what you’re looking for, but after putting in the basics for a while, you may find that if you don’t love one preset, there are simply others out there that you do. Some features, such as the full editable effects stack, are not as extensive as they should be. If you don’t care about adjusting the balance of various synths and instruments, you might end up with a synth rack that looks more like an effect rack than a synth rack, or something that’s missing some essential features you want.
