Today's music production is dependent on computer-aided tools. The versatility and efficiency of audio software makes them a natural part of the process of making music.
Virtual Music Composer, current version 3.0, is the only product of "LvB' s X". Accordingly, all efforts are directed toward improvements in performance and efficiency of algorithms. With the appearance of computers there's no area of art or science that hasn't been compared in this or any other similar way: "...computers will never defeat humans in the game of chess...", or "...Robert Moog: a dangerous anarchist out to destroy music as we know it..." Today's music production is dependent on computer-aided tools. The versatility and efficiency of audio software makes them a natural part of the process of making music. But, more and more, it also raises the question: Can today's audio software be creative by itself? It wasn’t a long time ago this question was almost more theoretical then practical. The music is the only art, unique among all others, that wouldn't be possible without existence of, at least, two of them: the art of the composition/composing and the art of performing music. The relationship between computers and creativity is a never ending story. And it will remain the same: things can always be better. And, we continue to work on to improving operating efficiency through new algorithms.
