mate, you're always bragging on about how easy it is to make all this stuff, how about you all show us how easy you can do it ?
make an italo disco track, make a berghain techno track.
Good ones, no crappy sh!t.
If you can do that (which I highly doubt), I'm sure most of us will be happy to take you more seriously.

I may try and do it when I have time but I'm doing other stuff.

I'd like to hear that too. Many things sound easy to make if you know nothing about the subject.

I don't get how or why the complexity of a given track has anything whatsoever to do with what makes it good or not. Absolutely nothing IMO. Some of the greatest tracks ever are musically simplistic, and other are musically complex but the level of complexity is certainly not a benchmark on which to judge a given track. There's millions of people who could rewrite/cover a track but it doesn't mean the original is somehow 'less' because of it. Really strange... :?

I just joined this forum, so first hello everyone. After reading through this post I can understand Danny Wolfer's aka Legowelt's point of view. He is musically trained and knows about chord progression, etc. He has said it before that melody is important to him. Sometimes people like to focus on the actual structure of track (song writing) your working on, and less on the journey of exploring sound. He does know modulars, enough to get him numerous record pressings, he did a few albums using an arp 2600 and paid for studio time at CEM studios. Even myself when I find the time to work on music production, I like to make dance music-not really noise exploring. Sometimes good bass line, cool chord lines are more important then finding the perfect sound/noise. Especially if it means taking over the session. Time is a very precious thing. Danny at one point has owned just about every vintage keyboard or at least borrowed one. I have owned a few classic synths myself and sold them off, it's no big deal which gear you use IMO.

And we are the dreamers of dreams

I'm hyperopiniated myself and often say stuff that can be really alienating and people can take it really seriously... a couple i was talking to called me an "arrogant bastard" at Freerotation (and they were probably right!)

Putting people in the spotlight is partly a fault of the music industry, where some people's opinion is treated with great reverence, and a broad selection of views is not represented.

Legowelt is apparantly close friends with Rob Hjordik who is a very gifted and prolific modular designer, and he put out the first release of a mutual friend Dennis AKA Mono-Poly.
