Hi. My name is Martin and Im from Norway. I have been playing with Studio One and FL studio for a while, mostly trying to make EDM music. But recently I started to take music production more seriously. I have a couple of questions, if anyone could answear them it would really help me to understand a lot more :)
1) If I find a "user" preset on a synthesizer I like, and tweek the sound so much that almost nobody or actually nobody can guess the orginal preset I worked out from, does that still count as a preset or does it make it my own sound? ( I know it would still be a preset, but is it my "own" preset/sound or whatever?)
2) same as above but with "factory" made presets. And does alot of tweeking go under the category as sound design or mixing or none of them? And what if I use different preset sounds from different synthesizers and tweek them to sound unique together? Is this still just layered presets?
3) I see people really get mad about other people using presets, is it okay to use it or not? And if it is okay, does it mean the producer lack quality?
4) Im so confused about all this "preset" talk, are piano players bad because they use piano preset then? oO
Please help me understand how this works :)
