I'm pretty impressed with that form factor.

Seems I had one like that back in the early 80's... A Texas Instruments 99/4A.

I'm surprised that people forgot about that form factor for almost 20 years. It was certainly useful.

Cut your tracks into shorter clips - the build, the breakdown, etc.
Make some loops of good bits as seperate clips.
Then trigger manually. Congrats, you're now surpassing the traditional DJ thing, you're remixing on stage.

...And practice before you go on a stage.

The guy who introduced me to breaks (back when) was constantly doing what he called "faking the funk"... He would produce tracks in Cubase or logic or something, then export four sub-groups of full length audio tracks. These would be recorded into a Roland SP-808, where he would play his tracks, and...

Re: Reason vs. Live

Hey I'm quite new to creating music with software, so please excuse my ingnorance, but I was wondering how Live stacks up against Reason, or maybe that's an irrelevent question. I've just purchased Live and I'm loving it. I'm just wondering if I can accomplish the same tasks and get the same outcom...

Because so many producers try to straddle genres and defy genres, there is a lot that falls outside this timeline. that said, I think it's an excellent idea for a reference... I would like to see the breakdown of Jungle / D&B and Breaks genres, but hey - I named my online handle montrealbreaks, so g...

I produced a lot of my breaks at 136 bpm for the longest time using Cubase V. I kept files, but then exported my final copies the tracks... Then I bought Live 1.x. After a catastrophic hard drive crash, I never re-installed Cubase, cause I had Live. So, I have the finalized tracks, but I can't "re-o...

Liberalism has (wants!) nothing to do with monopolies... that's why true liberalism presupposes a state divorced from business interests. I think we pretty much agree here, monsieur Breaks? Yep. We agree on that. I'm pretty anti-corporate, but also pretty pro-military. I think that a liberal democr...

I believe that the USA is in danger of being overrun by monopolistic corporate interests. Liberalism has nothing to do with it... Unfortunately.

Cowardice, Lazyness, Complacency, Apathy, and a Sense of Powerlessness, those are the predominant traits of modern era humans. Putting our immediate needs first to the exclusion of a little bit of foresight and yes perhaps a little idealism too... that's what we're mostly about. We North Americans ...

I'd like to question whether or not the current engagement of Danish troops anywhere in the world (such as Iraq, Kosovo and other places) have any direct relation to my freedom of speech. -Paws Canadian and allied soldiers spilt their own blood in Europe from 1939 to 1945.

It's funny how often people denigrate soldiers... Particularly people who oppose capitalism, corporatism, and globalization. Strong, democratically accountable states with capable, professional militaries are the greatest defence this world has against growing corporate rule. While computo (and othe...
