Quote Martin Walker:
Ironically most musicians starting out with modular synths in the early days did so on a ‘suck it and see’ basis, and discovered many useful things by accident
Fully agreed, Martin. Funniest part is that when you have so so many tutorials in videos and books, you may start feeling that music is methodical and formulaic, which is fatal.
Trial and error technique gives lot of space for innovation. I might forget lot of things that I read, but I'll never forget what I'll figure out on my own.
