Especially when you have nothing relevant to say...

Bottom line, a computer is a tool that can be used to make music. Whether you call it an instrument or not is your call. But it can make music, and in some cases, beautiful music. That's all that matters.

You say it's easy to make music with software? and insinuate that it doesn't require practice. I used to be ignorant enough to think that myself, until I tried using Fruity Loops for the first time, that **** is hard. I'm a musician myself, I've played guitar and primarily bass guitar for about 9 years now, and making music electronically is a whole different ballgame. So don't knock it until you've tried to do it yourself.

I think computer software is a lot harder to master than a bongo.

So your calling acustic drums software?
Sorry I am new to music stuff, I used to bang on my buds drums way back in the 90's
Dummerchic's bro got drums so we both been messing with them but I would say drums guitars so on is a musical instrument not software and they all make music. however a keyboard is electronic so its making music by software inside of it.

I don't think anyone's arguing semantics here. The bottom line is both a guitar and a music program are tools used to make music. Both are intended to do so. So what's the difference?

Regarding which is more difficult to master, that's probably more subjective than anything, and would depend on the particular instrument. For me personally, drums/guitar/bass/keys are a lot easier to manage than professional software and hardware. There's a lot more thinking involved in software.

Just sayin computers arent hard to figure out. Now weither it a instrument it arguable. It can be then agian it cant. Depends on who you are. now i wounder most people go to guitars instead of base or drums me and my bro talkin n most ppl want be a guitarist in a band n not drums or base can you tell me y that is?! No matter subject people will debate on it. So now the computer who knows it can be use for many many things. So asked if it could be an instrument are we really talkin bout the computer itself or the program/software?!

Well that's sort of the chicken and the egg theory. You can't have one without the other. A computer is worthless in terms of making music without the software, and the software is useless without a computer to run it. So I guess we're talking about the combination of the two as one device.

Whether people choose to play a traditional instrument or produce it digitally is their own decision, great music can be made by both.

as an electronic fan, I would say that a computer is an instrument, as in my eyes, anything that produces sound is an instrument. In fact, I would even go as far to say that a Gameboy could be used as an instrument, just ask Fuck Buttons. If you pull out the gameboy cartridge while the system is still playing a sound, you'll usually get this odd droning noise. If it can be used to make sounds in a creative manner, it's an instrument.

sorry if this is seen as incorrect to you.
