Something that has always puzzled us is the stinginess of some of our fellow artists. Many argue that replicating sounds that another artist has made is not the way to find your own personal style. We'd like to argue against that notion. If an artist wants to know how we made a sound, or what sound we used, we tell them and show them. The ridiculous notion that we must protect our brand and style is absurd. Mike believes that it is grounded in a fear that, if another artist were to replicate, for example, Skrillex's FM8 growl, the artist would want to sound like Skrillex. While both of us disagree with each other on the degree of freedom it gives artists, we both recognize that beginning artists should have the right to experiment with other people's sounds.
An artist's work comes from inspiration, often from another person's track. If we are unwilling to share with one another, bland monopolization on sound will become more commonplace. That is why we here at Sundans salute those who take their time to share their tips and tricks with others.
