Pro tips on mixing analog and digital?
There's no difference. The distinction is arbitrary. By definition, all sounds which reach your ears are analogue. Even though they were once stored as a series of numbers, by the time you hear them they have been converted back into an analogue voltage and then to vibrating air.
It's all just vibrating air.
Hello, Ott! In some of your answers here you say things like "some DAW is good for writing, and some other DAW is good for arranging". Can you please share your opinion on the difference between writing and arranging? I am asking because in your beautiful compositions it's so hard to extract this or that part, like saying that there are some "core" elements and some "secondary/arranging" elements. Every little detail sounds like a core element that at the same time can't be isolated!
How are you drawing that line between writing/composing and arranging? Do you agree that writing is an act of producing something new from scratch, while arranging is always an application of existing known technics that are common for all good music pieces?
