I’ve decided to give NaBloPoMo (ugh!) a try so here goes.

Music applications, soft synths, and recording software are all so cheap now that just about anyone can get their hands on them. I think I’ve bought every major synth app for the iPad now but I’m under no illusions about calling myself a musician.

I’m a dabbler. I like to make sounds with them but I have no idea about how to write a complete piece of music.

I think dabblers like myself have to remember these facts. A few cheap apps don’t suddenly give you the right to be heard. I see nothing wrong with making sounds purely for your own pleasure. It can be quite blissful.

Just don’t have any expectations about being taken seriously.

Or am I being too harsh?

These drives are on sale right now at a certain large online retailer. I had to buy one.

external hard drive

This is a one terabyte drive and it’s tiny. These things have been available for a while now but the last external drive I bought was one of the bulky ones with much less storage. I’m tempted to get a couple more while they’re still on sale.
