Re: Building a new DAW - What do you guys think of this?

when you have that kind of money to spend, I'd go and buy an assembled laptop from someone who builds them specifically for pro audio music production. they aren't even that expensive. since you are from Brazil have a look at this website: adkproaudio.com the main problems with PC's used for audio p...

Re: akia mpk 49 pads.. sensitivity question.

I have a MPK25. you don't need to change any settings, if you watch the mod video othe people already linked (it's this if you didn't see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mI4SutQJpQ ), you know what to do. I suggest that instead of layers of tape you find a thin rubber sheet and cut out squares o...

Re: Work on a new track - need feedback!

there's definitely a nice synergy between the music and the video! actually I think the music was the best part and kept me watching the whole thing.
it expresses energy without being the usual soundtrack that only compliments the images.

good work!

Re: Maschine 1.6.2 OUT NOW!

I've just sold mine. I still recommend Maschine as a product, but for me it's still to much in its early stage. it still misses massive parts in the sampling editing area, and some other stuff I bought it for, and it's going roads I don't care about (a DAWish wannabe). I'll still keep an eye on it i...

Re: attempt at a new track // need feedback

it's not my kind of music, but I quite enjoyed it! I really liked the sound of the first (and main) pad.

the main thing that bothers me is how the middle part starts (1:55) and stops (2:48) so abruptly.
and maybe the variation from 3:34 to 4:08 could have been shorter, but this is me being picky!

Re: Work on a new track - need feedback!

I guess it all depends on the mood of the video itself. for example, I've tried to listen to your track while watching this snowkite vid on youtube with its audio off, and it didn't fit very well. the best thing would be for you to have a copy of the video and then build the music on it, at least ma...

Re: Need help on a usb interface

I haven't tried those audio devices, but here are some general advices that are usually overlooked. firewire and USB 2.0 have pretty much the same qualities, it all depends on the drivers. read some review online about the audio devices you are going to buy to understand their quality and performanc...

Re: New Novation Controller? APC40esque......!

I'm a bit disappointed... I wished it was something for Live! and we even have to wait till April anyway to really see it... there are already enough DJ controllers, and 99% of them aren't even made for real controllerism, or to support the latest novelties introduced by Traktor with the S4... and I...

Re: TRON LEGACY OST - no remix, no sampling - Tribute

very good track, it actually feels like a movie soundtrack piece. I just don't think fits the scenes shown in the video, I was waiting for the music to start becoming more aggressive when the motorbike appeared, since then there are almost all action scenes. it's a bit too atmospheric for that, mayb...
