Since electronic musicians are so frequently accused of having no talent, I figured I'd explain to the uneducated people claiming it why they are wrong.
- i dont get your point
- you can granulize a cello sample and get a pretty sexy tone out of it if you process it enough, so maybe we have some hope!
- I used the midrange from a cello to make a dubstep bass once, it was hard as fuck to process. Yours probably sounded like shit man.
- If garage band can support vsts and you use massive then of course you can make dubstep. a lot of the talent in dubstep goes into the sound design
- did you know that electronic music uses notes too? you get those from musical theory!
- lol sounds like youve spent plenty of time producing and mixing
- did you know that we're able to synthesize the sound of a real instrument as perfectly as it can be played? it takes a lot of programming into dynamics, filtering, and a bunch of really fucking hard sound design. And sound design gives you an infinite range of timbres rather than the one timbre you get from an instrument.
- i admit that i've been guilty of accusing electronic music (specifically dubstep) of requiring less talent to get the same quality, though i have never claimed that it is the best example. this guy makes some good points and i'm thinking i should rethink my position. maybe it is apples and oranges.
- if they have enough money to get it all back then yeah
- It takes talent to smash your guitars onstage. Can electronic musicians do that?
- A lot of pop electronic music is shit in a musical sense and really doesn't have any emotion to it, but there are also a lot of really talented producers out there. That's a point that Daft Punk really tried to address with their latest Album Random Access Memories. Check out Com Truise, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and Eric Prydz (AKA Pryda and Cirez D) to get you started.
- I agree with you very good arguments
- speaking personally, my friend and I have attempted to make a song using the keyboard for my friend's girlfriend and after a month we've barely finished the base, and part of the keyboard parts. I mean I know it's hard to make the music, I just never knew how hard until recently.
- electro music takes more talent and skill because you are the one who will put up all beats rhythms this guy here is great at that so STFU all of the pointless morons who complains about the music he make try to see things in a different way for you to understand what real music is. this far more better than justin bieber or any crap. keep on rocking men have a nice day :)
- I just got into electronic music recently. I knew it would be difficult to learn how to do from a software perspective, but coming from a background in guitar I had no idea just how much easier it is to get a good sounding tone from a guitar than any VST. Artists like Enigma, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Reznor, and so many many more have an extrodinary gift. As a guitarist I had to learn one instrument and collaborate with others in making a song. With a computer... I have to do every part myself.
- It's hard to make music!
- why pick a string when you can turn a knob.... why turn a knob when you can push a button?
- dead wrong
- However, this is not true for people who know how to play guitar or piano. Making good music is hard!
- It's always easy for people with tons of experience.
- I love u :D
- As someone who has alot of experience with Kaoss Pads, Maschines, etc, I have to disagree. Its stupid easy.
