Hello my good fellows,
I am happy to share some thougts about music with this community in every topic I create.
Today I got curious about how a business model is working for producers and I came up with some questions to understand better how it is done. I hope you will accept to share your experience. Also, I find it interesting to ask why is a given DAW better than another one.
I hope I arrive in the good section of the forum with this, if you are a moderator feel free to move it.
So let's say you produced something with a Fruity Loops for example, and that you would like to sell it to a label and get copyright and everything :
- Do you owe anything to the company giving you Fruity Loops ?
- Do you owe anything to the companies you got some VSTs from ?
- Is there any control authority that come and confirm you Fruity Loops is legit and not a cracked version ?
- Who here works exclusively with legit softwares ? Personnally I use LMMS because it is free, but a frien of mine also gave me an unlegit Fruity Loops.
Also to develop about differences between DAWs.
Why would you choose a GarageBand over an Ableton over a Fruity Loops over?
The differences could be about (in my unexperimented mind) : GUI more or less clear end enjoyable, technical capacities, compatible VSTs, price, quality of built-in samples and presets (but now we find samples and presets everywhere).
I got this thoughts just by telling to myself that I would be nothing without my DAW, as I do not even know how to play the piano nor record anything played on instrument on professional quality, at the moment.
Feedback will be appreciated, much thanks for reading
Have some popcorn
Edit : Well my in my title is SAW instead of DAW, sorry I cannot change it.
