    We are told, making music ‘makes you smarter.’

    If there is any truth to this, the ‘being smarter’ is more likely to be attributed to the learning of musical notation, theory, (ie. exercising the brain) and the repeated practical application of these elements, than the use of ‘auto-musical-devices.’

    Such quick-fix methods of musical production (that require no knowledge of scales, chords, or time-signatures, etc) surely cannot be said to increase intelligence. -Perhaps creativity, or a willingness to experiment with sound, but not intelligence… Think about it, just for a moment.
