    Wonder how many times he failed before he got it right, if you call that right.

    Seems like you`re stuck with one time signature. How can you do progressive rock with this?

    "How is this music, again?"

    How is it not? Explain to me the difference between what this guy did and what any piano or guitar or percussionist does? He pushes buttons, sounds come out, and he manipulates those sounds to form a musical narrative.

    Whether you like dubstep-ish music or not, I think the level of skill this requires is very impressive.

    Stop the hate people. I accept that what you listen to is music... why can`t you do the same?

    It`s actually dreadfully simple. It looks tough, but holding down a few buttons at a time is actually quite easy to do. I used to use sequencers to write drum programs. Very easy and you could teach a child to do it in an afternoon.

    As for the validity of the "music". I suppose by definition you could call it music. But by that right you also need to call a dripping faucet or a baboon banging on an oil can, music. Any repetitive noise that follows a beat is more of a sequenced drum pattern then it is music.

    If you like the sound, it`s music to you.
    If you don`t like the sound, it`s just noise.

    @patchouly

    You`re a douchebag. He`s not just pushing a bunch of buttons. He has to memorize the sound that each button makes (which is customizable, mind you) and then he has to have the rhythmic ability to press the buttons with split-second precision.

    I`m not saying it`s good music, though. It`s generic, annoying crap, the leftovers of the leftovers of the byproducts of the music industry. It`s just about as far as you can possibly get from originality.

    patchouly is right, its not hard, nothing more that pressing a few buttons.
    Its probably no harder than playing piano, or programming a robot that can go to mars, other activities that also involve mostly pushing buttons..

    this sis a sampler and is not intended to be used the way that this guy is using it, he is just demonstrating what can be done with them. this machine is a tool used to make sampling easier. real electronic music is not at all made this way.

    Patchouly...you can`t do it. And he/she probably has a bigger penis than you. I submit Gerry for the official measuring.

    You don`t have to like the music to appreciate the skill required to pull it off. I hate that kind of music but was thoroughly impressed, and even entertained.

    All you classic rock, Beethoven, Mozart, music elitest douchebags (myself included) can piss off.

    I`m all for making tunes however. That machine has 64 pads to keep track of. Pianos have 88 keys in sets of 12, saxomophones and such have a bunch of valves and crap, guitars have 6 strings by 12 frets (not counting octaves). All of those things require great skill to play well but also are pretty much the same as far as what a human has to do to make music with them (though I don`t know if this thing had velocity sensitivity). Once I learned guitar (my first instrument) every other instrument was way easier to learn cuz your brain gets wired up for it and muscle memory starts working for you.

    @morimacil: Just like playing piano is just pushing some keys, playng guitar is pulling some strings etc etc.
    Remember that this is a configuration of 144 keys, from wich the content can change from song to song. I am no fan of the style, but I am impressed by the way he is using a tool that skilful. Especially since this is not the predetermined use of said tool.

    Elitists can go f*ck themselves.

    Madeon`s better, but to just say "THIS ISN`T MUSIC BECAUSE I DON`T LIKE IT" isn`t being a music lover, it`s having your genre stick shoved so far up their ass they don`t know what music is if it doesn`t sound like their favorite artist.

    I love this. But. I did a report on something very similar 6 years ago. So I can`t say it`s new.
