I've never seen anyone use one of those for midi control or as an interface.
I think the usb interface is used more for transporting the tracks over to a DAW after you've already recorded them, so I don't know how fast the drivers will be. I don't even know if the faders and knobs and shit will even output midi data. I'd imagine the midi port is just there to send midi sync to other instruments, not actual CC data.
If you're looking for some faders to control Ableton, sell this thing and get a NanoKontrol. You'll get more use out of it and you'll have money left over for other shit too probably.

Hmmm. It's not mine per se, but I might be able to convince the school to give it to me. It's not like a anyone will ever want it, anyway.

I was thinking about the NanoKontrol, as they're cheap and more advanced than I am at this point.

Thanks for the help, this has been great.

i was browsing the books a million and sat down in the aisle and started reading a book called "how equal temperament ruined harmony" read about 30 pages here and there, pretty interesting but not enough to drop 20 bucks on it

he challenges that that dividing and octave into 12 parts isnt perfect and there are other better tunings out there and shit like that


In some ways I could agree-like how in Indian music they have even smaller subdivisions in between notes rather than just 1/2 steps-like 1/4 or 1/8.

In some ways equal temperament did ruin harmony because in turn when an ensemble tries to play chords/etc. the chords end up sounding kind of strange or off-thus players have to compensate by playing slightly sharp/flat blah blah blah blah blah

i see techno as more of a armen van buren thing, or like darude or something.

i think mstrkrft is more electro feeling, harder and more fist-pumping

Electro is like punk music played with synthesizers.
When I think techno, it's either Darude or some gay shit from DDR or actual good stuff like DIM.

I'm saying it now. House>Techno(except for DIM)

Darude is straight up trance, the definition of trance. Alot of people would consider trance and techno as different as indie rock and metal are. And the "gay shit from DDR" (eloquent choice of words, by the way) is mostly considered Happy Hardcore or Happy House, which is not techno either. None of those are what's even close to being considered "techno" nowadays.

Techno is so huge right now, there are tons of people who think techno is going to straight up overtake electro in the next few years. We'll see what happens.

Man, I'm sure this has been covered but this is a big ass forum to search through so several questions: Are the any of bass lines in mstrkrft real bass or are they all synth?

Also while I'm at it: what is the legality of sampling and also remixing songs?
