Aloha guys. Just to chime in.

That's what this whole thing is about.
"Steve Vai and Herbie Hanc0ck came to my bedroom and played on a track for me".
1-Imagine if your client was willing to pay $$ for
George Benson (from his home laptop) to play over the sketch guit part you wrote
or Steve Gadd play over your basic drum groove etc.
2-Or you are a classical pianist and now you actually playing/recording
that million $ piano in Veinna or Paris or New York etc
(in your housecoat and underware at 4am)
To create an outline of a song and get some of the greatest
musicians in the world (or nice players/friends you know) to do the actual playing on it is IMHO
truly a game changer.
And while I totally agree with 'TheNavigator'
I would prefer my BFD 3 over almost any real drum recording nowadays
The 'sounds' are there yes but how good is our performance using this tech
compared with a pro studio drummer?
Those lil tiny nuances can't alway be done with tech alone.
That being said;
to get a Steve Gadd/Alan Morgen to play your BFD drums on a track
would be the best of both worlds and now it is not only
possible but also (if this all works as planned) very easy to set-up
Of course all licensing and $$ issues would have to be negotiated first but
imagine being able to say:
'I've got a session scheduled with Leo Kottke and B.B. King coming up'.
And really mean it.
And the door is now wide open for 'vox's'.
So many of us create great work but can't sing very well (or at all).
I can imagine a 'data base' of singers all around the world
waiting and willing to give our work a go.
Kinda like a plug-in; if you don't like that one, just try another one.
One question tho'.
Does/can the client version show any notation/scoring info on that end?
So players can read from a manuscript/chart.
Future looks bright. To use or not to use. At least we now have even more options.I'm giving George a call
If yer gear ain't breakin down, you aint workin' much.
