I'm getting tired of FL locking up and crashing on me. Once I get some cash I'll probably grab some hardware modules so I can move away from software. It'll be a minimal setup, but I could probably make do for a while with a Korg ER-1 and my microkorg. The old electribes are dirt cheap on ebay too. The er-1 is obsolete, but it's still a pretty damn good VA drum module. You can get one in the neighborhood of $100-$130.

My college has a bunch of software and hardware to use for free, which is really cool. Keyboards, synthesizers, and programs to utilize them...

I might switch to that, in order to better make songs.

I just prefer doing all my programming directly within the synth interface. That and even cheap digital hardware just gives me way better sound quality than I can get with my soundcard. I'm experienced enough now with subtractive synthesis and sequencer programming to where I'd just like to do the majority of my drum sounds from scratch. That and no latency/cpu spikes is something I would certainly like.

I could probably get some good sounds out of this box. I'll probably pick up the synth box module from the same family. Both of them can are only about $120 or so on ebay. Maybe the sampler too, but that depeds on space and money.

Both of them on the same setup.

I've mainly been dicking around in PXTone, which is like FL Studio but chiptune and free and not nearly as extensive.

I might end up making real music for video games and stuff, or I might just mess up a Beatles album in Audacity and call it a day. You never know.

I just mixed a basic beat to work with for my cover of "Love My Way".

If I'm confident enough with the vocals, I'll upload some multitracks and make a remix collab, and I'll make some art for the "single".

It would make for a good dancing song, I think.

I can play keyboards, bongos, and guiro, so if anyone wants any of these on their recordings, I'll see if I can make a recording in the meter you want and send it to you.

I like lo-fi, so because of my lack of good equipment, I have an mp3 player and an EyeToy to record stuff.

No wonder why my stuff is shitty. Cause it sounds horribly. Musically, it's good (at least to me).

Now, I'm writing stuff for a three-song set about Invisible Man.

I've done a cursory look around the forum and can't seem to find a link to a copy of FL Studio. Granted, I didn't look very hard. Anyone have one or know if there's one on the forum?

I think I'd like to give the software a try with my dearth of musical skill.

I miss my old band, and the many days we spent in the practice rooms arguing about what band we should rip off this week and not actually ever playing a single note. Ah, those were the days.

That was every band I was in in high school, except the arguments were always in my own head and nobody cared besides me but we all pretty much sucked at our instruments... except the metal bands. I was the only sucky member in those.

Here is my only audio hardware (besides analogue instruments)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLMh7zodyDU

That's a song for me and ChrisGendo's electro/screamo band. It's a little less over-simple than our other ones right now, but no matter. Sooner or later we'll record the album we have written. We were going to have our first practice since spring yesterday but I realized I was missing my audio jack after I got down to his house so we just walked around instead.

Anyways, we'll hopefully start writing songs with more substance soon.

I almost forgot, this is a VERY rough demo "music video" we made a while back. I recorded his vocals into Garage band over the phone XD

Don't be too harsh with us, it's a just-for-fun band :P

Oh, nice, you have the EMX.

I'll probably pick up the EA-1 for my monophonic synth box. The differences are minor and I can't justify blowing $500 retail just to get analog tubes on a digital synth. The drums don't do it for me though, I need zappy electro-break drums. The Er-1 should work nicely for that. Neither of them have LFO, which really, REALLY pisses me off since my microkorg has pretty much made me a decent LFO-ologist.

But once I get some cash for the fall I should be able to get some pretty intense sounds by running my LFO microkorg patches through the ER-1's gate. Luckily these boards look pretty easy to program as they pretty much just have a patch bank, step sequencer, and phrase sequencer.

I barely understood any of that... which goes to show how little I know about music production. Haha

I got the EMX as a birthday/ high school graduation gift from my parents, and they got it used from a local chipbreak guy. He said it was glitching up, so he couldn't use it for shows, but the only thing that makes it glitch up is when you press down on the arpeggiator too hard, it turns out :D

I've been recording some of the instruments I'm not very good at in Audacity, then taking the best samples from those and looping them (which works fairly well because they aren't parts that have sustained sounds). I do the looping in Sony Vegas, but it's very limited as far as exacting locations go. My current drum/piano/synth demo sounds off.

Producing analog music alone in a studio gets pretty depressing after a few hours. Just having someone else in there to press record and stop would be a huge plus, and would speed up the process quite a bit.
