most trance is calcified shite. i make psychedelic trance, and i firmly believe it can be one of the most gorgeously produced and intricate of 'lectronic genres. certainly it shits all over the simplistico-repetitive [insert electro band du jour] which are so popular right now ;) check out Electrypn...

many of us who use Live as their main sequencer have been arguing for more DAWlike features... proper surround support, decent midi editing, folder tracks, and so on and so forth. recently however i have switched to using Cubase (and occasionally REAPER) as my primary DAW. and since then i've start...

Ambience is great for long decay sounds. i also have a soft spot for Verbiage , which does wonderful dense clangy verbs. you can't go wrong with SIR ... it's free, and there are a millions impulse responses out there, from real cathedrals to Eventide ambiences. worth mentioning that with most of th...

it's a different kettle of fish, but i run my electric violin through a bunch of VSTs, using an expression pedal (assigned to filter cutoff, pitch, delay, stutter etc.) it's hugely fun :) you can do amazing things with software... i've got one chain which splits the violin signal, with one going Dbl...

wherever possible try to plan for the future. if you think you might use a hardware synth at some point, think about 3 years time... let's say you have an old Nord (that's 4 outputs and 2 inputs) or a Virus (6 outputs) and perhaps you pick up a nice Lexicon reverb (that's another 2 outputs and input...

i tried the demo last night and... well, i wasn't hugely impressed. i know some people who are like 'dood, i'm selling my Virus, this synth is ALL i need!'. on the basis of half an hour's tweaking last night, i'm not even sure i want to groOop-bye, and there's no way i'd use it as much as my Virus. ...
