Default The Future of Musical Instruments.

I Think that in the future, all Instruments will be touch, there are some seemingly accurate predictions that by 2030 computers will be worth 1 billion Human brains every $1000, so that means there can literally be infinite combinations in the future, and don't forget, really easy to play guitars!! as in extremely realistic keyboard guitar sounds!!! What do you think?

People are always going to want to play real instruments. Computer generated music will never have the capability of sounding as authentic as real instruments. Plus it's more fun to play instruments - making friends in bands and orchestras, performing at events, teaching people how to play the instrument... computers don't and will never compare to that.

Excuse me, but look at this


2029
A $1,000 personal computer is 1,000 times more powerful than the human brain.


and it doubles every 18 months, so 2031 2,000 2033 4,000 2035 8,000 2037 16,000 2039 32,000 and so on. and sound will be very authentic. so there. it may not be an accurate prediction but this is probably what it may be.

You missed the point I was trying to make. I'm saying that actual musical instruments will never become obsolete and the experienve of playing them will never compare to the experience of using a computer. When computers were relatively new in the 50's, people were saying that 30 years from then, computers will be the only way to make music and instruments will no longer be of use. Still hasn't happened. Computers are simply just comlementing music now. We can think that there might be a huge shift in the way music is made in the future, but I doubt that computers will take over 100%.

How did you figure that one out? Can you see the future? If so please tell me where in the world I'll be in 5 years?

I'm sure Nostradamus thought his predictions were quite accurate because he made them in the 1500's.

That's end of the world rubbish, music and other stuff is more easily predictable.
