  • Can I get my minute back?
    • Didn't miss much. It's just another person trying to suggest that step-sequencers are somehow interesting to non-musicians. Even as a musician myself, I quickly find things get muddy and confusing very quickly, as the connection between action and music is so abstract that I never feel like it's me making the noise.
  • The video: after about six minutes of pointless waffle, the video shows some kids playing with this, for about five seconds. Then back to the waffle.

    • Watching from 5:00 to 6:00 is perfect, thanks!
  • I'm a musician. An instrumentalist, to be precise. Today, I've played my instrument for 8 hours including rehearsals, studying routines and repertoire, and a gig. This article is terrible, really really low quality. It's so crap.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
