I completely agree with you Per.
In fact I'd take it a bit further and say the computer IS a magnificent
creative tool. Indeed it DOES NOT suck creative energy-unless the musician sucks.
They are in fact truly inspirational.
Modern computer and web technology such as MIDI
give enthusiasts and composers unprecedented power to compose, manipulate, and play or perform music.
If one is willing to apply oneself to get through the learning curve associated with most music programs, sequencers, samplers, VSTs, Virtual Studios, one will be rewarded with unlimited power.
The challenge is to
free the mind of conventional thinking.
I know this is a controversial topic and is ultimately up to ones own observation.

I would fully agree that "setting up a computer suck creative
energy"! But using it, when finally set up, that's just amazingly
creative IMHO. Never the less I'm finding the subject line
amusing ;-)) Great thread.
Never miss a thing.
