Did you ever try ImpOscar together with dBlue Glitch?
Or the oddity? (by Gmedia)
Minimonsta is really good to.

Not impressed at al by the stuff this sugar-shit has to offer.


Sugar Bytes is awesome dude you're mental. They make some slick, slick stuff. And it's all really simple.

Anyone who wants ANY of the Sugar Bytes plugins.. PM me.. I know of a good deal that I would rather not express out loud

Just picked up Electro Harmonix Micro-Synth, Bass-Synth, & HOG. Some great bass synth possibilities with these things.

I am thinking about getting the new version of traktor and the faderfox DJ2 as a starting point to get into electronic music, would this be a a good starting point? or should I consider starting off with something else?


It'd be a wicked starting point. The Faderfox gets used a lot with Traktor, and Traktor itself is a really cool program. You can do all your mixing inside the program, so starting out, it's a lot easier to get going. That's not to say Traktor's a n00b program either. You can do a bunch of cool advanced stuff with it once you get used to it.

(Yes I love Traktor.)

Would i be able to hook something like:
http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.aspx?ObjectId=628



up to my computer for on the fly drumming. i played snare for a long while and i think that could be turned into something cool perhaps.

but i use a separate brain to power my vdrums, i obviously wouldnt want to buy one for one drum..

Yup
There has to be some way to convert the output to midi data. They're usually 1/4 inch outs aren't they? You might be able to splice a cable into USB or something or run it through an audio interface and use it to trigger midi data through some other program.
Anything's possible with Max/MSP

what do you think some possible applications to an ultrasensative head like that would be. obviously i could only trigger one sound with it (velocity & location of hit can change parameters). Rim & head are different inputs.

my idea is with this and some drum sticks i can do some nice snare style beats but i wonder how applicable that really could be.

i was wondering what are the essentials of knowing how to play the synthesizer and whats really helpful in knowing in regards to making electro music.

do all of you know your pentatonic scales and major/minor chords? i dont really know what ground i need to cover. but i've been starting off of that.

yeah, it would be a bit expensive to have a bunch of these guys around you, but it would be cool.
Once me and Jake came up with a Neil Peart cage style enclosure for DJing/Live performance, with triggers and pads and such all the way around us
I'd just get a drum machine style controller and get really good at finger drumming. You could probably do all the same rudiments you would do on a snare with your hands. At the very least you'd have a new move for your girlfriend, and no one would know what she's talking about when she asks for the "Special" Flam-a-Diddle.

I'd say some music theory is necessary. Learn the Major scale and its modes and how it relates to chords and keys. Once you realize everything is just one big scale, you understand composition and everything a lot better. You should be able to find out all the necessary info through google, but if not message me. I might have to start a theory thread or something...

What do ya'll use to organize your drum samples in Logic/Pro Tools? I'm a diehard simpler in Live kinda guy, with seperated tracks for EVERY indivdual drum hit.. but now I'm attempting to learn Logic and quickly learning I don't know what the fuck to do with drums once I've lost my precious Simpler and Impulse. I'm thinking about just straight up putting them all in as audio tracks.. but working with fills just sounds horrendous without MIDI.

And I really hate iDrum, Drumagog, all of that bullshit. I HAVE to have separated tracks for all of my drum parts. Anyone have a neat solution for this in Logic?

todd-

I also like to have every drum hit on its own channel. What I do is I have one custom made EXS sampler instrument with all of my favorite samples on it and then make an autoload with several instances of that instrument loaded up for the kick/clap/hat etc. For the stuff I do in Black Holes I usually have about 15 tracks just for drums.
