So, producing music nowadays is like betting in the casino or Forex market

I have been doing music with computers, and involved with related subjects since I am 10 or so years old. I used the first version of Fruity Loops, the Virtual Sampler for Windows (the most similar thing now is Kontakt) and composed MOD tracks using Impulse Tracker. I'm not that old though, just 38.

But I'm astonished today with the amount of spam and ads I see along the lines of "you like producing music, then BUY THIS COURSE, THIS INSTRUMENT, THIS SH*TY VST, AND BECOME A HIT MAKER TODAY!!" ... sh*t and sh*t.... "Be the next Hans Zimmer", "You're so cool that we need your money to let you know you're still cool"....

Stop it! Please.

P.S. Yeah, argentinean wine can make you write stuff like this..

IMO the biggest part of modern music business is in selling plugins, hardware and learning videos. It is an industry, and it doesnt has anything with making music. Yet, thanks to this industry we have less expensive better quality tools nowadays.

Yeah look at this site, full of it ! but it pays the bills I guess !

You just got to switch off and ignore it, the spammers/bots etc all know we're all sitting in front of screens so that's their captive market.

The net was given over to the public as a free resource, but you know the old saying "nothing in life is free"

I block each individual spammer, but amazingly they keep comin back, spam isn't as bad as it was in the early 2000s, you should have seen how bad my inbox was back then for spam.
