Fortunately, I'm still only 27 years old (thank you, parents, for making me play the humble recorder when I was seven!), so I'm hoping to have the time to learn more about composition before my years are over :)
So sorry if I gave a bad impression on how I intend to do stuff, I hope the extra info helps clarify that :)
''And why the harsh assumptions on 'the thinking of the DAW-musician'?''
Because I was talking harmony and you were talking quality of samples and patches.
''I've studied harmony quite extensively''
That's good. Don't stop.
''Fortunately, I'm still only 27 years old''
You can see it either way. Don't take time for granted, it's a mistake. The older you get, the faster will time pass you by. Exponentially. I know.

You didn't give a bad impression. You asked for advice, and I gave you that. Make of it what you will. All the mistakes I mentioned I have done myself. That's the best advice I can give.
