Man up and get a Reel to Reel. That's the only "DAW'less" set-up that matters. Because it SOUNDS BETTER!
No it DOESN’T!
And what’s manliness got to do with it anyway?
Digital’s been de facto for almost as long as tape was by now. Either leave your ego in past and move on, or quit the game, because all this aggressive masculine opinionated posturing is coming over as rather amateurish, pathetic and irrelevant.
Manliness = Aggressively pursuing that which you know is right.
....haha...um...at this point you should know I really don't care what you say to/or about me. Nor will I "quit" anything because you suggest I should. So save yourself the trouble. There's nothing you can say that will affect me in the slightest.
Now...back on topic.....the amount of time "digital" has ruled the recorded music landscape is eerily similar to the timeline that tracks decline of the music industry.
So say what you want about digital. Its introduction was DEATH to the business.
You can make all the excuses you like. That statement will STILL BE TRUE...so once again....save your breath.
It is EASY to record music with a DAW.
That is why we are FLOODED with garbage music that didn't have to pass any QC gatekeepers.
When I got my first record deal, you didn't say you were "Releasing a record" unless you had convinced someone else to sink THEIR money into YOUR product.
Now.....Everyone is "Releasing a record" and consequently, that statement means NOTHING anymore.
Instead of having highly trained professionals record you onto analog tape, which is not easy (I do it myself now.) And requires that you both have good material and know how to play it.....
....Now, you slap a few loops together in Abelton, bounce it out and call it your "Record"
I call B.S.....because NO ONE is buying music anymore!!
The business has been sunk by a number of factors, but one of the most critical is that there are no "Gate keepers" You don't have to EARN your stripes in order to be heard.
Tech has made it possible for people who are too lazy to learn to actually make music....to pretend they are making music.
Consumer's can tell. They know it's B.S...so they don't buy it.
At lest that is one MAN'S perspective. (And I'll remind you discrimination works both ways, so please refrain from insulting my gender.)
Since it became the standard, the music industry has gone DOWN IN FLAMES!
