skrillex is an EXTREMELY talented music producer/ artist. making music through a daw is JUST as difficult as playing an instrument. not only is he doing ALL OF THE WORK that ALL the musicians, the studio engineers, AND the mastering guy does, he also does LIVE PERFORMANCES where he remixes his own music along with other people's, ON THE SPOT. His knowlege of synthesis and his mixing and mastering is just rediculous. let me give you a real life example: when skrillex makes ONE SOUND, and i mean, one "yoi" or whatever in his music, that takes up *ONE* channel. within this channel he has the synth *or instrument* that makes the sound, along with a chain of audio effects that makes the sound bigger, smaller, whatever. just like a studio engineer would move a microphone away from an amp or add distortion to give the guitar a specific sound, that is EXACTLY what skrillex is doing when he shapes a sound. but instead of just messing with ONE sound like a guitarist would, he is doing the ENTIRE arrangement. **** you to anyone who thinks that Skrillex isn't talented. I understand if you don't like his music, or if you don't like electronic/dubstep/ whatever, but don't EVER ******* say that it isn't talent.

TL;DR skrillex is extremely talented

Yes, because pressing buttons on a laptop/mixer/synth is much harder than playing an actual instrument.

P.S. I'm in a class called music tech.... honestly isn't SUPER hard... but time consuming.
My music tech teacher doesn't see much instrumental value or lyrical value in techno/ Dubstep.

............ you're actually retarded. what the **** do you think that playing piano is? couldn't you just say that it's "pressing buttons" as well? i play piano, and i also produce electronic music. i also work at a professional recording studio. the amount of time, and effort, that skrillex puts in is COMPLETELY comparable to playing an instrumet, especially since he also uses ANALOG EQUIPMENT most of which must be controlled BY HAND. any real musician will appreciate all types of music, and will also give credit to those who have it coming. here's a good example: my dad was Ray Charles' guitar player for over 10 years, and he thinks that skrillex is a ******* boss.

Lmao, cool your jets...
I might have more respect for him if he didn't look like a ******* ugly ass hipster...

Piano, you need to be able to compose **** real time along with all other instruments. When you mess up, it gets noticed. and the chances of messing up are higher. With electronic music, its all based on whatever program your using. (i.e. protools) find a nice sine wave/ sawtooth you like, change pitch, tempo, gain, etc. and add it to a loop.

totally and completely not true. live performing from any medium, if you mess up, there's an equal chance of it getting noticed. you're right when you say that he doesn't do everything FROM SCRATCH on stage, but that's only because like i said, he does all of it himself. djing live though is just as hard as playing an instrument live. as for his appearance, i didn't think that how a musician looks is just as important...........

What you are telling me is that he makes new composure on the spot on stage.... ***************** . And it isn't as easy? Once you plan out everything the week before, you just need to remember where to loop **** , add in extra instruments. WIth actual instruments, no matter how good you are there is always problems or spots that need improv.

Oh, and the music is just so good, it pumps up the crowd as much as it does at a rock/metal concert.

i'm not sying that he does composing on the spot, because he doesn't. that's why i said DJING not ******* PRODCUING. he's not remembering anything about looping anything, hes doing on the spot. LIVE. completely new, every time he performs. if you havent noticed, he's using different controllers along with his computer to perform his own stuff live...... isnt that what bands do as well? you have no idea what you're talking about. just because you're "in a class called music tech" doesn't mean you have ANY idea what it's like to do the kind of stuff he does live on stage.

Why does it matter how the music is made, does the difficulty mean anything?
