Did I say I had a problem with the device?
I at least talked about the features and how they would nicely fit into the core program.
Your comment doesn't even contribute an opinion on the device or anything near that the topic is about. Kinda hypocritical eh?
I know better then to even be replying to your comment, but you essentially telling me to beat it in a public post and not just PM me that I'm somehow bothering you is foolish on your part.
Hope you have a brighter day tomorrow.
Sorry Lux, in no way was that comment directed to you personally... Please accept my humble apology.
I meant for that to be a general statement towards the hateful posters who only comment to be negative... And surprise! I became a giant hypocrite by allowing what I would consider "repeat offenders" regarding Props and the REs to get under my skin.
It was a rough day outside this forum and I unfortunately took it out on the wrong people. All I wanted to do was find some unbiased information about this new player. I feel like 75% of the conversation in these "reviews" are just garbage talk.
My main problem is with people who have no constructive criticism of a product, only bullshit comments just because they're anonymous and can get away with it in the context of a public forum.
I dunno, maybe I don't have the patience for this anymore. Sorry for the rant...
I figured by the tone that it must've been a rough day.
Look, I'm sorry I steered the conversation away from the focus of the player. I work with a lot of hip hop producers and let me tell you, they don't know anything about music theory, sound design, or the ability to play instruments but damn they can make some good beats. Some sample vinyl, some solely use presents it don't matter to me. They listen to good music so they know how to replicate good music with their instrument which essentially is called a "DAW".
I don't care that this player makes it easier to make music. The knowledge and understanding I learnt for music makes me feel good that I can spot what key/scale a song is in, but it doesn't mean I'm better off then someone who can mess around not knowing what they are doing and make a beat that makes it to top 40. Music is about having fun and hopefully learning what works for you along the way. In the end, we all have opinions on each other's music that varies from amazing to not quiet there yet to utter bad so don't quit your day job. I hope to the creator they at least enjoy their own music because that's all that matters. I play my shit all the time, might not make everyone happy but it makes me happy.
We're all passionate about Reason. PHeads will keep making players to help an assortment of non musicians who will eventually learn music by using their devices and already skilled musicians will either use them because they are workflow enhancers or pass and just use their knowledge with other means of making music.
I love Reason's core program so much. I really want to see it grow, but unfortunately it's not my baby so I don't control it's growth. My criticism is my emotions reflecting on the strong opinion that I dislike the venture capital practices that are rubbing off on the company. Possibly even before the VC's, PHeads really just doesn't have the business-consumer relationship that big fanboys like myself want out of them. I think the lack of communication promotes speculations and bitterness every time something cool comes out "on the side" with a hefty price tag. I really do believe they put profits over making the product the best damn thing out there. A company with good PR would see that their customers are ranting about an outdated sequencer and say they are listening and may work on it or give us an anserr to how they want their baby to grow. If the former: provide a fix for free or bundle it with other features to equate to reasonable paid upgrade.
I'm going to strike a chord with some of you with this comment but, this would have been a great device to release as a freebie, as a 10.5 update to calm the ranting until the "core" Dev team catches up with whatever improvements they got for us in the sequencer.
