Re: Reason 9.5 announces VST support

Had one of my most fun times making music definitely in Reason back in the early 2000's. Going loop bonanza with Dr Rex was amazing! Also loved Redrum, but wasn't too hot for Reason's effects, which were pretty much run-of-the-mill back then. Also wasn't too keen on the wiring interface. Eventually ...

Re: How to make that Patrick Cowley sound

Get analog synths :!: Then you can come as close as this Dutch clone of Cowley: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2gwWqW3YJU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3hqP4sZ5_s Thanks but I'm not planning on spending lots of money on an original Prophet 5. I still have good hopes that a proper software emulat...

Re: How to make that Patrick Cowley sound

Of course I know this won't be easy, especially as said above, it takes more then just the right synth patch. Would be great though though being able to get this great Patrick Cowley sound back to life :-) was it ever dead? seems to be still all around the one way or the other Although he has alway...

Re: How to make that Patrick Cowley sound

I'm not sure btw way which is the better Prophet 5 emulator, Aruria Prophet V or NI Pro-53. The jury seems to not be out on this one, as I hear conflicting opinions: Arturia almost seeming to be too clear & sharp while Pro-53 supposedly sounding phatter but also more muddy

Re: How to make that Patrick Cowley sound

Thanks for the response so far. What I actually want to do is to make a proper remix/re-edit of this very rare but very massive Patrick Cowley take on Tantra - The hills of Katmandu: http://soundcloud.com/rolfski/tantra-the-hills-of-katmandu-patrick-cowley-rare-re-edit. They idea is to recreate some...

How to make that Patrick Cowley sound

I want to recreate the Patrick Cowley synths of the early 80's. Here's a famous example for those who don't know what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQB2F0zv0zo&feature=related What I know is that Patrick created all his sounds with a Prophet 5 synthesizer and a drum machine. One of the VST ...

Re: What makes ableton better than other software.

and rearranging and looping are 2nd to none. I beg to differ on the looping aspect. In Traktor you can punch in a loop point wherever you want to on the fly as well as change it's length quickly down to something like 1/32 note and also set loop points to jump to on the fly. With Live that's all a ...

Re: Ableton for music production. PC vs Mac

The reality is that I can get a low end PC laptop with the same level hardware, using the same interface to perform as well as a Macbook Pro according to the Live performance test, at a third to a half less in price. However, i recognise that the tuning process might be unbearable to the non techy ...

Re: Ableton for music production. PC vs Mac

Don't invest shitloads of money on a new computer beforehand without knowing if you actually really going to need it. It depends on the way you work but your current laptop will probably handle Ableton 8 just fine. Remember, for the price of a mac book you can buy yourself a decent pair of monitors....
