I almost feel that if I need to ask this question maybe I shouldn't bother. But here goes nothing.
I have watched videos with the Midi Fighter and things alike and can tell some people play piano and others have just practiced a lot. I have been practicing making beats and just trying to be expressive with my ipad Imaschine app and some times like every great once in a while something sounds really cool.....did I record it no.... >.< but I find it difficult to make some thing that I consider good come out of it. Do I need to read up on playing the drums? Do I just need to keep practicing? Then when it comes to the whole other end of the midi fighter(it's main reason for existing) which is altering mixes on the go that frightens me to death!!!!! lol well not really but I know it looks easy in videos and sounds easy enough to grasp from explanations but is that all practice? Are many of the midi fighter mappings that people make pretty intuitive? I'm just a beginner so if any of this is way off base just let me know.
