So, I just got this trial for the music program called Ableton, a program that Trent Reznor used for Year Zero. I thought I'd try it out and see how good I could compose.
Just learned some new melody that mixes the main notes of Wish You Were Here with a melody I made, I might upload a little recorded demo of it on YouTube or something. Dunno yet.
But so far, this is a very great program. Especially for ambient music.

Trent can kind of get away with it. He does his solo stuff for films and games or whatever, then NIN is his band thing.
Ghosts was a bit odd; he's taken on a softer tone since the Fragile and thrown in the odd ambient track here and there. Personally I think he's been copying Kid A for a while now and Ghosts was a clear ripoff of Selected Ambient Works 2 by Aphex Twin. (Interestingly, Radiohead was also influenced by Warp).
