Other people might call me a musician or a composer, it doesn't really matter to me as far as I'm concerned.

I think we all know there are vastly different kinds of musician and different kinds of music. Midi files are no more the death of music than Instagram filters are the death of photography.
Agree to all that!

At the same time, the technology itself could be a godsend or an evil. The very same computer that helps hospital personnel to cure patients, helps also a hacker to steal credit card information and empty bank accounts.

At a time, when one manufacturer puts a chord name for you when the keys are pressed, so you can learn and practice ... another one strips chord progressions out of all hits and sells it for 50 bucks to the masses, with the tag "You don't have to learn anymore, because we did all hard work for you, so "copy/paste, up to your taste" and your next hit goes top charts"...

Personally I don't care, because I don't see the "easy way" as a sustainable.

I know also, there will be always people, who will do crazy things and spend a lot of money just to satisfy their ambitions... so.. let it be!
