This is true. Do that and make sure you read the manual to all of your software and how to program a synth.

Heres a good book on it

http://www.noisesculpture.com/htman_free.html

just type in your email and it'll send it to you. its a good intro to synth programming and actually helps you build patches using the Vanguard vst synth.

I don't know if this question was asked before since I haven't read all 88 pgs of this discussion, but.

Does anyone know how to get that effect where everything else momentarily stops when the kick drum hits?, is it stock in some program, or is it available as a
vst plugin?, Or is it not an effect at all, and just something people do with volume automation?

I have Ableton 7 lite right now

^Sidechain compression. Google will tell you all you need to know.

Also, pirate a full version of Ableton (I mean...uh...pay for it...)

Thanks man, I found a good tutorial on Youtube that shows you how to do it, with the stock Ableton compressor. I applied to some of my older songs where the beat sounfded muffled/overpowered by the other stuff, and had great results.

you're not suppose to seperately download cracks, most have viruses in them. just go on torrent websites like isohunt.com , thepiratebay.org, demonoid.com, or proaudiotorrents and use Vuze to download whatever you need.


i want my cracked ableton live 8....

you should maybe do a post where you put up all those links in one post... maybe little description on what it is it would save lots of time for people who haven't read the whole board... i read it but didn't bookmark everything... good call...



If anything I feel like this subject should have its own section on this forum.

But otherwise, I feel like the first post should be a compilation of FAQ's and links and info so people don't HAVE to read 88 pages. That's a ton to ask - it took me more than one sitting, that's for sure.

I'm willing to help put this together by posting the bookmarks I felt were useful if Taylor is willing to help aswell.

Why? Cause it's not "Pro" enough unless you're getting ripped off properly by Digidesign?
Will my tracks not sound cool enough if I don't run LE??
Oh wait... Jesse uses LE doesn't he? I wonder what size his shoes are...
SUM1 help PLx!!!

Why don't you stop talking to me in a patronizing tone so we can have a civilized discussion about it like adults? As soon as you can do that, I'll tell you that M-Audio makes cheap interfaces that are known to cause both driver and hardware malfunctions, they have terrible or nonexistent preamps, and are generally unreliable onstage (this is from firsthand experience).

M-Powered is also not compatible with the Control 24 and the DV Toolkit (1 OR 2), which are both wonderful things to have as a producer. I plan on purchasing both of them in the future.

To top it all off, M-Powered will cost you twice as much for an inferior product. You have to buy the hardware first, then spend another $350 for the software, whereas purchasing an Mbox (all the way from Micro to Pro) will give you the full LE software as well. I've also heard M-Powered does not let you have as many buses or tracks, although I'm not sure if this is true.

Kyran, disrespect and disagreement are two completely different things. Disagreement is wonderful and fundamental for the learning experience of all of us, and I welcome you to disagree with me at any time so we can both become more educated producers. However, if you show disrespect to me or any of my friends here again, I will light you on fire.

Sincerely,
Todd

How many M Audio interfaces have you owned that you've had problems with "On stage"?
Are you saying their equipment only fucks up when you're on an elevated platform, not in your bedroom?
You started off our serious discussion by saying:

Seeing as how they're pretty much exactly the same software, you're statement's useless. If you want to compare hardware that's a different story, but opinions are going to vary depending on which level you look at and who you ask.

With the Digidesign route, there's no real middle ground. You either get an MBox with 2 ins or you drop a fat sack on a Digi003 Rack for 8 plus a bunch of other (possibly unneccessary) shit.
Compare the price of an 003 Rack to a Fast Track Ultra 8R or something similar. M Audio offers equivalent functionality without the heavy Digi price tag.
ProjectMix compared to an 003. Both are the same style interface/control surface combo, yet the M Audio is half the price.
The Pres in lower class M Audio interfaces are obviously shit. The only reason you don't hear the same from Digi is because they don't make budget interfaces. But you'll find M Audio makes good products the higher the range you're looking at.

As for the DV Toolkit, etc, I think if you were producing for film soundtracks you probably wouldn't be using an MBox. Aka, redundant to the average user. It's just more hype you're being sold by digidesign.
Worry that you won't be able to record in 7.1 or have 128 simultaneous tracks and pay for Digidesign to "unlock" your software for you.
It's shit like that that they're banking on you "needing" so you'll keep upgrading and end up buying HD.

M Audio has good quality mid-level interfaces which give the user Pro Tools compatibility for a lot cheaper than the Digidesign equivalent.

That's my opinion. I don't have an album or anything, and I've never been featured on a blog (sigh someday...) so I guess what I say doesn't really matter, but whatev.

Didn't mean to sound patronizing. I'll be sure to treat you with the respect you deserve in the future.
To paraphrase, stop being a cocksucker.

Sincerely,
Captain Codfish
