wahey its my birthday today

i got an m-audio oxygen8 v2, and ill be honest i have no real idea of how to use it. ive made all my music so far on reason, by drawing in the notes. obviously i understand music, and i understand the principles of midi, but i cant figure out how to assign things to the knobs/buttons, it seems quite random the ones it has picked for me.

re-assign by right click on the buttons in reason and clicking edit remote overide mapping. then make sure "learn from control surface input" is checked, and move the button or nob on your m-audio. click ok and it should work.

Look, all I'm saying is, if these big stars didn't want people going through their garbage and saying they're gay, then they shouldn't have tried to express themselves creatively.

Here's a question for the dj's...since I don't...not yet, anyway...

A lot of tracks that I hear nowadays don't have the standard 32 bar intro/outro that is usually there for mixing in and out of the track...mostly it's 16 bars, sometimes 8, and sometimes less than that.

How are you guys mixing these? Are you mixing in/out that fast? Or are you doing your own edits to lengthen those intros/outros to the standard length? Maybe a stupid question, I don't know...

no. great question. the answer is both. editing the intros to be longer on some tracks and mixing in quick on other tracks. just depends on the transition. also some dj's to the long intro dj edit manually by loop the short intro's (see sebastiAn)

That sounds...hard. This is in Abelton I assume? Sorry, I don't spin really...the ladyfriend and I have turntables and a mixer and some vinyl...I'm pretty good at beatmatching, I play drums so maybe that helps, I dunno. But I don't dj...my interests lay more on the production side...but obviously producers that dj are at an advantage, so I'm trying to find the time to work at it more.

Can you do this looping in Serato? I think that's what we're going to invest in...already have the 1200's so it makes sense.

OK...I don't have CDJ's, nor do I want them. $$$ is tight...I live in overdraft.

no lie, as far as DAWs go theyre all the same since most of us just use the sequencer part and get our sounds from elsewhere

for pc and mac im a strong advocate of ableton

if you want something nice get logic, if you somehow find a bag of money on the streets, pro tools is nice
