If there seems to be a defiant tone, yes it's there, but only because in my own experience, most of the time I was disappointed. I thought WOW with this new guitar and/or all those guitar sounds surely I will write a symphony or a punk rock tune or SOMETHING! But mostly I just wanked on the sounds a bit and went back to what I'd been doing previously. There have been two major exceptions. a) A looper pedal made it possible for me to capture raw ideas very quickly and practice soloing, bass lines, etc. on things of my own making rather than someone else's idea of a good time. b) Much further down the list I begrudgingly acknowledge that without my DAW I would never record anything. It's a different mindset though.
