Go with Mac. I'm serious. I was trying to save up the money to buy a Mac Pro with all these fancy upgrades (processor, memory, etc.) and it was gonna wind up being $5,000+. BUT, the new iMac is out and it's up to 3.04GHz.

For under $2,600, you can get the 24' iMac maxed out with 3.04Ghz with Pro Logic. I'm fucken tired of PC's now and I'm upgrading to an iMac. I was at the Apple store jizzing over it yesterday.

No, I use ProTools, Adobe Audition and I used to use FL Studio. But I will be using Logic very soon when I get that iMac. Still haven't actually used Reason and I haven't gotten to see what the hype about it is. Not that I doubt it.

See, I'm torn about using ProTools, cuz I have a few friends who really know what they're doing with it, but more in a recording rock bands sorta way. Is it pretty easy to learn to use it for making electronic shit?

Awesome. Bookmarked. Alot of these I've noticed are more hip-hop than anything. I was looking or Led Zeppelin, Deftones, AC/DC type stuff. I think it's really, really unlikely I'll find some but I'll play around w/ some of these acapellas today anyway. Thanks.


well some of that stuff is really old, before they might have recorded vocals seperately...but regardless, you'd have to find the master recordings, and since people didn't necessarily remix zeppelin back in the day, they might not even exist anymore.

Honestly, it's kind of difficult using it right now due to this "H/W buffering" problem I keep getting since my laptop probably isn't ideal for Pro Tools which is why I'm getting the iMac. Hope that's better. It's not very difficult, you just really have to commit your time to learning your shortcuts, knowing your tools, and alot of trial and error. I recorded for these rappers I know and I think it's gonna be just as difficult with any genre if you don't commit to learning Pro Tools. At least intermediate. I would say it's not as easy as Adobe Audition but I can only export my recorded work no higher than 354kbps (Help anyone?). Which is why I mainly use Pro Tools, for quality reasons.

Wouldn't it be awesome if we could get ahold of some acapellas of The Doors, Led Zep, or even Pink Floyd. I've always wanted to remix "Bike" by Pink Floyd.

There's this part in the song where it breaks and the lyrics go:

"You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world
I'll give you anything
Everything if you want things"

I was trying to EQ some of the instruments out but couldn't get it right. The song has a nice dance type of bounce to it and you could exploit the shit out of it. I just thought that would be a trippy song to remix.

uh, i would go logic if youve got the money to buy audio units because its hard to find pirated plugins, also, buy pro tools for the mac then just pirate logic and use the pro tools interface with logic, that way you win either way and you can use pro tools on your windows system if you ever wanna change, if i was made of money i would do everything on a mac but im probably gonna use a PC

and on making electronic music with pro tools,MIDI implementation is probably pro tools biggest flaw for making electronic music, i was reading that junkie xl does all his crap in pro tools except his midi work which he does in logic

I didn't look through all 30 pages, but this seems (more than slightly) useful...I know I've been playing around with this and the Ableton demo (I am still shit.)

Speaknig of which, anyone got/know where to get a serial code crack for ableton demo on a mac?

just straight get logic if youve got a mac, the only version of ableton thats cracked is like 5.4, and its slow as hell for some reason, logic sounds better in my opinion anyway, its just got a steeper learning curve

if you know how to work torrents, heres a link

http://thepiratebay.org/tor/4006906/Logic_Studio_MAC.OSX___Key_%5BApp%5D%5BEnglish%5D

and heres like the whole shebang, itll probably take you a couple days to download though...and itll eat up space on your hard drive like a beast, but it comes with a shitload of apple loops

Noob question..

I have a Roland MC-808, but I hate recording my bass lines live, the timing will never be perfect... can I hook up my 808 to a program like Reason and use the patches from the 808 and record them on Reason or Ableton? If yeah, then how?

dude thank you so much, and yes, I do know how to work torrents. I still have no idea what the fuck "Attack" vs "Decay" vs "Sustain" vs "Release" is, besides taht SMD album. Seriously, making an electronic track involves more buttons and knobs than a fucking 747.

yeah, the whole misconception that anyone can make electronic music is pretty much blown out of the water once you show someone the complexity behind it

I've been noticing that there isn't much "Build-up" on most of what I've been producing.

What do you guys do to make the right build up? How many beats long? Volume envelopes? Synth decay? I've tried doing this myself and it just doesn't really introduce the climax of the song very well. It kind of sounds like it's just being mixed in instead of packing the punch.
