Yup thats a rad laptop by almost anybodies standards... im quite jealous in fact. enjoy yo.

IMHO... if your laptop comes with Vista... partition that thing and install XP on it. heres a nice guide for ya:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/install-windows-xp-on-your-pre-installed-windows-vista-computer/

Personally i would delete the Vista partion after i install XP.

On another tip....
Im wondering if anybody else here has Stillwell's Olga VST?
http://www.stillwellaudio.com/?page_id=37

Ive been using it for a while and this thing is so wierd but pretty fun. All the controls are in Russian haha.

But the interesting thing about it is that its got a randomising kinda drive that gives it hand-made synth like discrepencies.

Any thoughts? maybe.


Wow that is a fucking rad deal!

and I am going to partition and get rid of this Vista bullshit, I only have 2 gigs of ram, everything runs OK but I want things to run awesomely.

One question, I'm guessing this is a yes but I'm not sure... Will I be able to get all my music and files from my Vista partion and transfer it to the XP partion? I'm hoping I can just drag and drop... Will I have to reinstall my programs?

Well, I am now running XP
but my wireless card/ethernet card don't have drivers or something so I can't connect to the internet...
and My desktop doesn't want to burn the files to disk. Awesome.

It's really not that bad if you're not a dumbass about it like I was.

Just find a tutorial for your specific system and make sure you have all drivers beforehand, mine works perfectly now... It just took a little longer than I had hoped.
Totally worth it though

and now Rewire actually works! SCORE!

thats why you partition, so if everything screws up just delete it and still have vista. i'd definately do that and make sure everything works on xp then ditch the vista partition. windows xp is so much faster

and if i were you i would look around for one of those super trimmed versions of xp, then i would download a tune up utility and use that, i wouldnt overclock it though since its a laptop and it needs to be cooled

ok im starting to get used to DJing and mixing but there is still a lot of shit for me to learn. i dont really get the use of Cueing a track. i know it makes the track louder than the other, is that all there is to it?

Cueing is essentially previewing. When cueing track, it shouldn't play out of your main mix, but only in your headphones. This is when you beatmatch and eq to prepare for actually mixing it in the main mix.

Nah, Abletons samples are actually pretty awesome.
What version of live are you using? You just need to tweak some of the controls.

yeah your right

and that what i normally do i was just frustrated when i said that

I use ableton 6

but what i ment was i get ired of using the same sounds because i dont like most of the other samples evenwhen i tweak them

is there a way that i can set a recorded sound as a sample and punch in the keys like any of the other samples?

do you know what i mean?

Yeah I know what you're saying, there's not really a way to do that because you would be using an audio file that wouldn't be receptive of the midi signals. The only thing you could really do is adjust the transpose...

You should also really think of upgrading to Live 7, there's a lot more samples/presets.

also consider downloading additional live packs, there's some good ones out there.

I was also frustrated with Abletons sample stuff... n i have all the live packs etc...

then i discovered Vengeance Samples... theres some real gems in their packs.
Grab the Vengeance Electro Essentials... thats my favourite.
Then have a listen to the loops in that pack n see if you can spot where they have been used in some recentish tracks.

Just do a google torrent search, ya should find em easy enough.

I'll check it out...
you can also download some VST plugins, I just found one that seems pretty awesome (and free). I've only played with it for about 5 minutes but I like it so far...
