So I saw a Harmonica Kontakt Instrument for $150, and I was thinking, couldn’t you buy a decent Microphone and a brand new harmonica and play a real one for maybe half that price? I am all for instrument emulation and sampling, but I think there comes a point where we need to think about actually learning to play the real instrument. I’ve been contemplating buying the Ukelele from Wavesfactory, but I was thinking maybe if I just saved up a little more money I could just get the real thing and record it live.

Any thoughts on this subject?

Correction to title: I mispelled the word Unnecessary—that’s really going to bug me.

I totally agree for things like acoustic guitar, electric guitar, shakers, tambourines, and other relatively simple (and readily available instruments). However..idk about the rest of you, but I sure can’t afford to hire an orchestra :) I always try to lead away from sample based music as much as I can. It’s always good to learn a new instrument anyway. I REALLY wish I had room for an upright…even though I love my piano libraries.

As repetitive as this may get, I’m thankful for my parents unyielding support, and not just financially. They’ve inspired me to be and do whatever I set my heart to, and taught me to push through when faced with obstacles. I feel blessed knowing that I underwent two abrupt career changes (athletic injury and forced to switch schools..)yet my parents stood by me the whole way.

And now that I’m on my feet and doing what I love, they’re still there listening to my work, giving me feedback, and wishing me the best. I wouldn’t be anywhere or anyone without them. So thanks Mom and Dad :)
