Group Description


Here, "It's not about the gear".

We're talking about managing the quirkiest item of music-making equipment we own, the one that runs the most vital operating system in our electronic studio! How effectively we integrate ourselves--our intellect and our personality--with our tool set makes or breaks our ability to get satisfying results. As the hub of the system, we have to take into account realistically our varying needs and our aptitude for musical creativity, and filter the hype from equipment and software manufacturers.

Our purpose is comradeship in sorting through the possibilities of our vast technological environment to settle on the creative approach that works best for the OS in each of us. For those who are already under way with a set of preferred methods, it is a place to share the ups and downs of our progress.

This subject matter can get us into some self-analysis, so it is important that SynthSights remains a haven for constructive and understanding discourse among friends. We warmly welcome idle gossip, wild speculation, filthy thinking, bad language, angst-ridden confessions, awful puns and other important enrichments to human conversation! However, personal attacks or political/religious rants will get you shown the door. Your evil moderatrix exercises benevolent tyranny with regard to postings, boundaries of topic relevancy, and participation. The key here is style; if yours wouldn't fly in my living room, you'll be warned, and if you persist, out you go. For untempered personal expression, there are quite a few alternative fora and mailing lists that members here can recommend.

Please be careful to use proper subject headings and quote the fewest lines necessary with your response. Ready for the thinking folks' take on e-musicianship? Step right this way!

Visit and enjoy some of our members' studios at SynthSights' website,
