Sound Surfing

OK, a sudden realisation has hit me this year after much soul searching. Maybe it was my mid-life crisis moment or just a culmination of 20 years of surfing sound waves.

I got over my DAW issues and we made friends again. I decided to stick with Reaper and walk out on Ableton. It’s not that I don’t like Ableton but it is too damned expensive for me to upgrade at this time and I don’t really need all the functions it has to offer anyway. I just need to create a live mixer for my machines and Reaper does this in it’s grass-roots kind of way. Reaper looks better as well.

What is it with all these DAWs? They all suck in some way, usually it is some sort of strange limitation or crappy interface and crazy workflow. But mostly all DAWs have a real problem with performance, they all crap out when you really don’t want them to, throwing glitches and weird issues talking to the audio interface at random times and in random ways.

I am always thinking about where to go next with music and the process sits with me constantly and I have noticed that it reaches a point of breakthrough and it all pours out of me quite quickly in the end.
