    Talk to clubowners and people who hold venues that have the capacity for bands, act as if you're actually rather well known and that a lot of people will come. Oh and make sure a lot of people will come, because they'll invite you again then if you hold up to your promises

    Is anyone up for collaborating on a drum and bass project? I'd personally be looking to do noisia/spr esque neurofunk but I'd give other stuff a go. I think it'd be great to learn from eachother.

    Guys, quick question, is this MIDI keyboard any good? (I'm going to be using it with FL Studio)
    http://www.akaipro.com/mpkmini
    Also, does it have high latency? Because it's pretty important I can hear the sounds right as I hit the key and not like 300 ms later.

    Just read the entire Manual, Promotional material and SoundOnSound review for the Behringer x32.
    They REALLY have their heads screwed on this time. It is NO WHERE NEAR the usual Behringer unreliable poor build quality crap. It's half MIDAS!

    I'm pre ordering one and a flightcase to go with it. I'm sold, It's incredible

    I'll probably sell my M-Audio Profire 2626 and Dual ADA8000s to regain some of the monetary outlay as it will make that slightly redundant.

    I'm nearing release of an album I started on in February, and I'm wondering if a pre-release online listening party is something that would garner interest? I'd basically just stream the album from start to finish and combine it with the corresponding visual for each track. It was just an idea that popped into my head today and I'm wondering I should bother bringing it past the idea stage. Not that it really requires much effort, or any money.

    How does a "one man band" go about playing stuff live?
    Play one instrument, rest is played from the source file I guess.

    You could re-do tracks for live shows I guess where you sequence the layers of the track or something and use pedals to control... I don't know really.

    I've made a few cigar box guitars, haven't done one in ages though. I might start one as soon as my bass build is done.

    I like the way you mounted that strat trem, I never thought of doing that

    My band is releasing an EP through a label next month. I don't think they're intending to do internet sales, so would you guys have any idea how I could best organise selling some physical copies online? Which would be the best websites?

    I'd start here, too, if anyone's interested. A few people said they'd buy it on my last thread.

    Edited:

    We get 500 first edition copies to sell in Melbourne music stores, but I think we get to dip into that to sell to friends, so I guess I'll take a few dozen to sell online. I don't think we can put anything up on iTunes for a year, either.

    Thanks, yeah I figured "well I need something to string it up through" because I opted out of using the through-body piece of wood design. Drilled 3 screws into the metal where the strings pass through to a piece of wood on the inside, holds together really well. Love how it turned out

    I was bored yesterday so I mixed an album from the soundtrack of Ib.
    Basically, minor changes here and there and made most songs flow into eachother.

    http://vstplugs.blogspot.fi/2011/02/...y-antress.html <- Pretty okay

    And here's a really good cheap one: http://www.toneboosters.com/shop/

    If you buy the TrackEssentials bundle you get 10 really decent VSTs(including the tape saturation one). I like TB plugs and I recommend you cop the free ones at least.

    So I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the M-Audio Venom and/or the microKorg (not the XL). I'm looking at both and right now it's just down to the quality of the sounds. I do like that the korg has a vocoder and an arp, plus it's a bit more compact so I'm leaning towards it right now. Thoughts? Or should I just get a pure MIDI keyboard?

    Huh, my experience with M-audio stuff has generally been good. that might just be because i have some of their older stuff (trigger finger, x-session, uc-33e) though. is it shoddy build or what?

    Edited:

    Ok so my next purchase has to be an audio interface. I have a DJ/io now and I need something with 96kHz and inputs. How's the focusrite 2i2? I would get an 8i6 but it's too big. I probably won'y need more than two inputs and two outs but does anyone have any other recommendations? My max is $250.

    M-audio is fine, as long as it's not something that generates or handles audio.

    At least, that has been my experience with it so far.

    Haha, nah I kid. It's what most people at my college say to be honest :P. I've only ever really tried/used their midi keyboards, and I've had no problems with them whatsoever. Good and simple keyboards.

    If you can, try comparing some interfaces in person before buying one though. The audio quality will most likely be just fine, but sometimes I get turned off by flimsy buttons/faders or the housing on an interface.

    Edited:

    Check out the UA-25 EX by Roland. It's a simple interface with just about everything you could need.

    It's what I'm using right now, and I'm loving it.

    My only complaint now that I have more than one hardware synth (plus a turntable), is that it only has two inputs (Jack/XLR hybrids). I really need more, since I don't exactly feel like constantly swapping cables if I want to use one synth instead of another/my turntable.

    Also, I get the occasional ASIO driver problem, but that's due to FLS's shitty crashes that freeze your ASIO drivers... Don't have that problem when using Renoise.

    The UA-25EX is discontinued. I'll probably just grab a 2i2.

    also i tired renoise and openMPT once, i got them to make noise but that was about it.

    How do you like Maschine? Worth it if you already have two DAWs?
    Reply With Quote Edit / Delete Windows Vista United States Show Events

    Love it. You can load the maschine vst up in your DAW and some DAWs support dragging and dropping midi or audio (as in automatically bounce a pattern and import it) from maschine right to the DAW. It's great for sketching out ideas and then doing full arrangement stuff in your DAW. You can even load the vst as an effect in your DAW and use the maschine effects to process other stuff, which is pretty fun sometimes.

    Just bought one a couple of days ago(summer sale is awesome), partially on the recommendation of KmartSqrl actually(thanks for that dude)!

    And I gotta agree with him.

    It's really cool. It took me a day to learn most of the stuff and it's actually way more diverse than I expected. It's amazing for making beats and that kinda stuff and if you use it within your DAW it's absolute bliss.
