Logic Pro X is bundled with a great set of orchestral software instruments. I transcribed a short clip from a film score and learned that not the harmonic construction, but the adjustment of subtle tempo and volume variations is the most challenging part of the recreation process.
To achieve the organic human sound was a challenging task, and my dissatisfaction with the controls led me to believe that we still have a long way to go to fully rely on a machine to capture the human touch. Self-driving cars, natural language recognition, artificial intelligence … what is the definition of human quality in a digitized world? How do we preserve senses and personalities in such reproductions? Is there a proper interface to do so?
