Analog or Digital?

In this day and age, everything is digital. Yet, there's something about analog instruments that have this authenticity to it that you can't duplicate. For example, the original moog, a heavy piece of equipment, but put it on any track and it will always add that extra element that's probably needed. The B3 Hammond, never gets old and so many software developers are making emulations of it. I love to integrate both analog and digital elements in my music today. It's almost like never forgetting your roots.

This is very true but there are also bands that blend analog with digital and I enjoy that the most. Analog instruments making digital sounds.

You're right. No one can forget the pure sound of real music. Though, authenticity is starting to be duplicated. There are programs that record real, professional recordings of each sound an individual instrument can make, and put it all together in a group with hundreds of other instruments like it. Software is really advanced now.

I can't say anything about liking analog or digital instruments. I will try to play anything that I have my hands on but it's not going to be pretty. I'm pretty lousy at playing. Cheers!!
