SAMPLE TANK: ‘MASSIVE MODULATIONS’
It is safe to say that making music in 2013 is easier than ever – but let’s not confuse that with the idea that every track that is made in a bedroom is worth of being listened to. When the pool or participants grows larger you will end up with a few that are on top of their game, only to have the majority riding coat-tails, hoping to get noticed. Consider the guitar and guitarists, for example. To even be competent with one, you need to have years of practice and experience. By picking a guitar up today, you might learn a thing or two – but you will be far from where an experienced sixth grader is at.
This is not comparable to making music behind a computer. The instrument itself is already taken care of – meaning that you only need to worry about the construction of music, rather than how to play the instrument itself. As long as you have a powerful DAW, sample packs of audio can be injected into your workflow – each being specific to the type of music you want to play. Want to make dubstep music? There are tons of instrument packs available for you to work with.
