This isn't so much about importance, but things that we are capable of doing ourselves, and things that we need help to implement. There's no point in a crowdfunding campaign to hire a developer to write things that we can write ourselves. There is a point in hiring a developer to implement (or help implement) something which we can't do without help..

This is not necessarily true.  Simply because we're capable of it doesn't mean we shouldn't seek help.  You mention "professional grade DAW" but our resources are falling short on the small things to.  Programmers, managers, businesses do this all the time.

I'll repeat myself, you can't invite our comments and then tell us they aren't relevant.  You do not get my buy in with this dismissive directive.
