Yes, I know, but the easier it gets to move from consumer desktop experience,
to making music, the better right?
We don't want to make making music an arcane knowledge that is only accessible
to the privileged few.
This is about getting people from being consumers, to being creative producers
of their own music. Regain the grounds that were lost with the introduction of
radio, which stopped the necessity for everyone to be somewhat of a musician
in order to listen to music.
Freedom not just in speech, but also in song!
