How much better is a dual monitor display?

Is it worth another 200 quid and how does Live work with it?

Which audio/midi interface should i buy?

I have put a bit of research into which midi/audio interface i should buy to accompany Live. I require multiple Line ins, a mic input and something for a guitar. My budget is between 200-600 pounds. So far i've come up with the following shortlist and i'm open to other suggestions: * Tascam FW1804 &...

A lot of people probably...

i actually have a trashy drum kit that i might try to record. It's got a nice snappy snare that could sound pretty sweet for hip-hop/dance if recorded right. I have a Shure sm-58, and also recently ordered an Audio Technica AT 4033a capacitor mic (which is in the post). Anyone had any experience in ...

I guess you're you suggesting that i sample the records. Sureley there are legal issues regarding this? Iv'e sampled single drum hits like this before but they often are coloured by background synth or whatever, but yes, you've inspired me to look out some old records and get sampling. I would still...

i recently bought an Alesis Ion for around that price. Although i'm v happy with it im sure there are better bits of kit for that price. Iv'e got a few bits of classic gear (pre 1990) which i like a lot better. There are a few replies that i agree with above, if i were you i would look out for any o...

Hello, in my opinion Ableton 4 is a winner all-round and it came at just the right time. The pressure is on for me to get a live set together as i have an upcoming gig in august. I was needing a way to sequence my synths, drum machines & sampler. If Live didn't exist i would have to program everythi...
