I admit, I'm more of a reader than a contributor on this forum. Mostly because my limited knowledge regarding the the bread and butter of synthesis and various other detailed subjects discussed here (i.e. regarding specific hardware/software scenarios). But as much as I've learned on this forum, I still don't feel like I have a good idea of how many members use their tools and for what purpose.
Personally, I enjoy writing songs with a beginning, middle, and end. My intention in writing/composing/creating my own music (aside from being my life hobby and adored passion) was to, say, someday submit my music for others to sing and use on the radio. Basically, I write the music, someone else gets famous, I just get the name credit and a check. Wishful thinking at it's best, no doubt.
But what I've noticed the most lately is that the majority of the people strive to compose music (or are currently composing music) for movies, or small independent films and events. I was just wondering if I was in the minority of people on this board that wrote music that ended between 3 and 5 minutes. I'm still contemplating setting up a broadjam account as I'm worried about people stealing material but .. I guess sooner or later you have to put yourself out there, or else nothing will come. I'll be submitting a few pieces to the john lennon songwriting contest this week. Anyone submitted anything to that in the past?
ok, i'll end my long winded post that didn't really go anywhere now.
