My post count had probably already exceeded a high setting before I abandoned my old account out of disallusionment and then came back months later to continue up to present day.
But the thing is, a lot of what we know and discuss here embodies the common ground between oh-too-sultry subjective creative passions which invigorate and encourage and madden us, and the oh-too-cool objective analytical reductionism which simultaneously plagues and corrects and guides us.
That's why ethics in music and music technology matters still!
Does that make us philospher-DAW-kings? hahahaha...
Actually, yes, in a way.
Or maybe we are just defending the last vestiges of our innocence with rhetorical and hobbyistic excess???
It still seems almost worth it to me.
I hope we remember what we wrote here 10 years from now and understand it with improved compassionate rationality.
