    more loops?

    Not that there's anything wrong with more loop collections, but as a musician I can't help being concerned that loop libraries are going to supplant sound libraries. I get so tired of meeting "padoosahs" who think that they have talent because they have a lot of great-sounding loops and samples that they slap together in some music app. Most of them can't even use a compressor or an eq, let alone play an instrument competently, develop a chord progression, hear the difference between microphones, etc.
