Would you say that music is a natural talent/skill for you? Or is it a thing you've had to "work hard at" to develop and enjoy? Was getting into it a mental struggle? or fairly straightforward?
It is very hard to tell whether having an aptitude for something is innate or learned. I have worked very hard at learning to interpret sound in my own way.
I do find it very easy to approach a new piece of equipment and make it do what I want it to but, again, I have no idea whether this is a skill I have learned or whether I am naturally disposed to it. Probably a bit of both.
Deciding to devote my energy to making music was very easy - it's the only thing I've ever really wanted to do. When I was 13 'pop musician' looked like the best job in the world, with all the sex, drugs, money and international travel. Why aim lower?
However, it was a huge struggle getting myself into a position where I could make a living from my own music, although I can see now that I massively over-complicated things by trying to fit in with whatever was fashionable at the time.
Letting go of that was the key to everything.
Do the Adam A7x monitors sound better in the new studio? Do they have your trust back after the Mir indident? Also do you think fiddling aroud w/the freq. adjustment panel is proper or better to Trap?Ott responded on 06/22/2012 Next question
