I don't know.
All I can say is, if you want something to not sound like it was programmed by a lazy guy, you need to not program like a lazy guy!!
I agree with your post to a certain extent. But I feel statements such as those may not always be true. There are many ways of programming music. The beauty of using tools such as the arpeggiator is that you can sometimes come by interesting rhythms that may not be possible or as easy to come by when programmed in by hand. The hard and tedious way is not always the best.
Iam getting close to the swinging syncopated rolls/fills in this track using my method.
nobody uses an arpeggiator for beats. The hard and tedious way here is using the arpeggiator, rather than not. If you're too lazy to make music, why don't you, well, not make it then? It requires lots and lots of hard work, you won't get anywhere with such attitude. Tell me one producer / composer who got to where he is by being lazy. Hell, tell me one at least half-successful person in any subject who got anywhere by being lazy.
the statements of quayquay17 were, are, and always will be true. stop slacking and get to work.
and by the way, you can get absolutely any rhythm you want by programming by hand. and fine tune it to your heart's extent. damn, I can't think of something more stupid than not learning to sequence for sequenced music. it's like trying to play a violin without learning to bow first. or drive a car not knowing how to switch gears.
(took you longer to read this post or write any post here than it would've taken to program such beat by hand, congrats)
