personally im a big fan of the hoover from the old school rave days

ill show you how to make a hoover sound, you need 3 oscillators each an octave apart, then use some mad pulse width modding, and some mad chorus, very sexy sound, kinda outdated, but still

and thats the basic concept, you can screw with it to get that engine sound i suppose

I haven't made a song with this synth just yet, but if you can get ahold of Native Instruments Pro-52 or Pro-53, I can give you a preset you can use. That is if you're meaning to use one Not just wondering. It sounds alot like the DFA bass but with a lot of reeverb. Big growl to it too.

most hoovers you hear are played way up on the high octaves, just put a wee bit of distortion on it and bring it down about 2 octaves, actually wait, im not really sure, havent done much experimenting with that sound but typically since its 3 oscs 3 octaves apart id say you shouldnt play it too low or the sound might be muddy

im about to get pro tools and take a class on it in college so i have 2 questions.
1) If i get it and install it for windows and format the key as windows can i go back later and change it if i get a macbook?
2) If i have enough original material to play live what would the best set up (equipment) be if i wanted to do it DJ style.
ive heard a couple times that justice uses pro tools so i was wondering how they do original stuff live.
thanks.

Dude, I meant to ask, is there any kind of good way of organizing samples or midi in your actual folders? Everything I saved that sounds okay and I intend to use for later is all scattered and I really don't have any organizational names. I gotta start getting into a good habit of doing this but I need to try out a system where I could do it efficiently.
