Sound is a funny thing, especially when it is on a computer. When your sound works well, it can be an amazing accompaniment to the visual or even work well on its own. While most civilians may not recognize the nuances of sound, plenty of musically inclined people are less interested in managing the technical aspects of keeping sound working properly on their systems.

When Directions Matter

There is definitely a time when an omnidirectional signal is going to be your best bet. However, these times can be rare, especially when you want to really focus on something and get the maximum level of quality. Processing a solid beam and getting great spatial filtering are nuances that so many people forget about.

Naturally, your microphone is going to be a major contributor to the setup, and will be key to making your beamforming into a successful operation. But there is also a software aspect to it. If you love to tinker with software, you may not need any help from soft famous and their software. But if you would rather focus on producing something amazing, you may want to go with what works and let the software sort itself out.

The Software Side

Most of the time, music people would just as soon focus on music, just as podcasters would rather focus on creating the best possible podcast. As nice as it is to get a “new toy” in the form of a sweet new processor or microphone, it can also be a bit of a pain to set up things on the software side. This is a frequently hidden detail that so many people can easily look right past.

Unfortunately, software is a major part of everything we do online these days. When you create something and want it to work properly, you need to use all kinds of different software. Worse still, some of it is not even all that good looking. There are these programs called codecs, and all they seem to do is compress data and make life more complicated.

If your system is like many people's systems, you probably have half a dozen codecs kicking around on it. And if any of those codecs do not play well together, you might find yourself losing inspiration quickly in the studio as you struggle to make your audio programs actually work. This is probably the worst reason ever to lose the muse and end up not recording or fully editing anything.

The Worst Reasons for a Delay

There are so many reasons why any kind of creative work can get delayed. But if troubles with the law, rehab and problems with accessing your muse were not frustrating enough, having a set of software programs that refuse to let you just focus on your creative work is probably the worst. When you have the right tools, you can get a whole lot done without having to mess around too much. This is the essence of having your work space be enough to create something amazing.
