Some thoughts…
[…] that there is no correlation between creativity and ownershop of equipment. That as an artist gets more proficient the number of tools goes down. […] You can often tell an extremely powerful tool by its Spartan appearance. It does not nees to advertise itself. The 3d surround system is driven with Software developed in Pure DataThere are no flashing graphics or whizzbangs, just a command prompt or a blank canvas. What this is saying is “I am ready to do your bidding Master”. Many get stuck here, because they never thought about what they want to do, expecting the tools to lead them rather than the other way about.[2]
