It's strange how Hip-Hop was the shyt until Fruity Loops and DJ Blunts n Shyt essential drum packs came out. It can't be a coincidence.
They cant do that with Classical or Country cos its still based on being half talented meaning having the talent and experience to play an instrument.
This is how i see Hip Hop:
I check out youtube now and then for some inspiration to then see these teens in there bedroom with a computer that there parents bought with a cracked copy of the obvious fruityloops as a complete studio with yet another obvious factor, Making a southern beat,
Then a year later they pop up on forums like what mpc shall i buy simply cos they saw there idol using one on youtube feeling they can make hot beats with it.
I mean theres no creativity in it no more just hype so the inspired just follow.
I slyly think software developers should calm down on releasing there products every 6 months and let us just be creative rather than yo i need that new this or that.
A sequencer as basic as Notator can still let you get creative but all these limited edition fascinations and Shameless Marketing tools overlap our prime objective in making music and study more on that mpc and that neko etc.
