So you'te a synthesthesiast? If I was playing guitar patches on a keyboard, I'd hardly call myself a 'guitarist.'

I don't get the poll or the question or why there is a limit to two DAWs. But anyways, i voted StudioOne and Cubase as the two DAWs I think are on a "level playing field". :-)

Okay. I'll quit speed scrabble today and focus on arriving at "the method". Aarrghh, no, it's hard to do.

I've quit speed scrabble before, many times. I always "relapse".
The problem is that speed scrabble is so much more fun than finding "the method". And trying to make those REAPER functions that is necessary to "the method" functional is no fun either.

I've had many methods before and from each method I made one song or tune. I probably had 40 "not it" methods and 40 "not it" songs and tunes from those methods. So it's not like I'm totally idle. It's just that the results from those "not it" methods sucks.

What's the point of sticking to one "not it" method and making a thousand "not it" songs and tunes from that?

I don't think it's avoidance. I think it's a quest for a quality method. And when quality method comes, prolific songwriting comes. I hope.

Okay mealtime and KVR time is over, scrabble time next. Shalom, aloha, adios.

Nah. It's a craft and takes practice. Trust me, no one here would ever want to hear the first song I ever wrote.

Probably not the 31st, either.

Yeah. I knew they did that back in the day, but I don't get why there's no synthetic for it that sounds as good.


I first wrote a song when I was 14. The method was pick out something on the guitar to support some caterwauling and make up some words which kind of scan. The latter part of that came easily. If it doesn't, maybe develop other interests.
(Greg Lake wrote Lucky Man when he was 12.)
I wrote a couple more before I focused on getting proficient at the instrument. It wasn't good, there was no pressure to be good, having never done.

Probably Cubase. Even though the question is quite pointless, because, fortunately, DAW's aren't all equal, and everyone can choose the one which works and costs the best for him/her.
