Yeah I flipped through it too, seems pretty straightforward. I might send it to some of my friends who want me to teach them music stuff. It's hard to know where to start when teaching people music. I keep forgetting they don't know certain things already and I end up just confusing the hell out of people.

Has anyone tried Arturia Brass? I'm trying to find a decent copy of it online somewhere. I like how it's not just a bunch of samples. Don't know how it sounds though...

mixing, i'd say is the hardest part of making music.
but im getting the hang of it little by little.
seems like training your ears is a critical part..

how do you structure a dance song?

like i know how to structure a hip hop/pop/rap song

cuz that's how i first started producing.

like

in a hip hop/pop/rap song there is

8 bar intros
16 bar verses

and blah blah blah

how do you that for a house song?

house songs are typically made in 32 beat, or 8 bar chunks. I think this questions been asked (and answered more thoroughly) before.

most people just plug their interface straight into the house preamp

if your interface has four outputs you can map each track in ableton to the individual outputs then run those wires into each channel on the mixer but thats kind of stupid unless your using the mixer for tactile control/effects

Def. not stupid, in my opinion it sounds alot better than working with a midi controller mixer that's pieced together through various effects built into Live. It's totally personal preferance but there are a ton of people who use Live to DJ this way and I see where they come from. Gaspar does it that way and his sets are insane.

I could maybe afford the rocks and spaceship rental.. After that unfortunately theres no cash for equipment to sample it.

I bet the answer is right in front of me but I've only learned a limited amount about all this. If someone could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.
