Hi Mr. Ott.
Thank you for keeping me entertained with your music over the years.
If you ever get the time, I am trying to get into music production for fun, and am curious as to which software I should use. I saw you bring up bitwig on your website, but I was curious about your thoughts on Logic pro, as I did try Garageband on my macbook before. I am just looking for something simple to use and powerful that I can express my creative outlet with. I'm quite partial to middle eastern instruments it seems. I won't take offense if you don't respond, as I know you're a busy man, and I have the utmost respect for you.
I hope you and the family are well, and I am psyched for your new album.
I was a Logic user from V1 to V5.55 but I moved to Cubase when Apple bought it from Emagic and abandoned us PC users.
I switched to Apple computers in 2011 and bought Logic 9 but I wasn't impressed. I was pretty astonished at how little it had changed in ten years and it felt a little archaic to me.
Cubase is so far ahead of the rest in my opinion. In just about every way it outperforms everything else I've tried.
I use things like Bitwig and Ableton Live and Reason for writing but I always come back to Cubase for anything serious like arranging, mixing etc.
I suppose it's just a workflow thing - you most enjoy that which you are most fluent with. Cubase is like an extension of my brain.
Are you playing "Around the World..." remixed at your gigs? One Day I Wish To Hear This Kind of Tune :) (maybe Ozora 2015?)
After seeing the animalistic line-up at Ozora 2015, I've immediately bought the ticket already & can't wait to see you again. I'm pretty sure, just like the last year I'll be at the frontest line & be busy being hypnotized with you & the All Seeing I.
But it seems like this year all the big bois are going to be there, maybe we can see you at the same stage with other musicians at any of the stages?... (Gargoyles in Dub? xD)
