All of the instruments in my music are 100% virtual using GigaStudio. This concerns me as I get more serious about my music. If the end result is pleasent to the ears, does it matter if it\'s virtual or not? How will the virtual instruments (Guitar, Bass, Drums, etc..) sound on radio? Also what will a potential record company think when I tell them my band comes in a cpu case?
You may find the following interview with Tom Scholz of Boston quite interesting in your contemplations of \"virtual music\". While he did not have access to Giga, nor do I think he would have used it even if he did, he describes the first Boston album of his own creation - then needing a band to fulfill the touring and market need.
Enjoy and for whatever it is worth, my feeling is great music is great music regardless of the journey taken to create it.
