"Not Trying To Make You Nervous"
I suppose I just don't trust much anymore - at least in this field. The one main thing I have noticed about music in my 25 years of being in it... is that big business doesn't work... in music that is. I live near clifton park NY, and its home to Parkway Music. Its hands down the best music store in upstate NY, and signifigantly better than many in the big apple. Its very much like Andertons music in the uk... attracting high profile buyers, beginners alike. Great service, the best techs, their employees are entitled to retirement plans. Its privately owned, not a chain.
To put it shortly... guitar center moved down the street... and even with all their tv ads... they didn't stand a chance.... Years later, the entire gc chain... is showing signs of the same.
Thats what i loved about cakewalk... it was progressive, and accessible, and VERY VERY good. I would have gladly paid more for it.
Look at what is happening to labels...The internet gave music back to the people.
Over and Over, big business and music have never mixed, unless your journey
So - what am I doing with Pro Tools.... I don't know... I really don't.
So - I suppose this is just my morning coffee typing...
Regardless mr bitflipper - Im very happy to have this forum with you sir=-)
