Fuck Proprietary Skills

People don't learn how to program, but learn how to S3 or EC2, people don't learn how to illustrate but how to Photoshop, or how to C4D. "Oh, I couldn't possibly make music without Ableton.." This is sad.

@neauoire i'm studying art, and i regularly get into fights with my lecturers over bullshit like "you have to hand in a protools project to prove you know how to use a daw", as if there weren't a dozen other daws (i've also handed in projects cut entirely on cli in ffmpeg, nobody even noticed) 😬


@aurora @neauoire

Use whatever that gets out of your way to make the thing. Or is a genuine experience using.

I've discovered that I make different music in different styles depending upon the DAW that I use. Which was an interesting insight to somebody who starts every song with "I'm going to try and remake 'Piggy' by Nine Inch Nails.
