Re: Keys, Scales, Chords, Progressions, Etc...

the scales-chords site is brilliant, obviously it's not a substitute for learning organically but it does help to fill in some of the gaps quite nicely

Re: DNB tutorials?

dnb can take a while to master as there is so much going on, dont get too involved with 3rd party plugins just yet, but i would recommend getting the ez rollers sample cd as starting off it helped me big time as a source for quality drum samples

Re: SWing ur kick

i dj in the traditional sense and if the kick was all over the place and impossible to mix i wouldnt play it

swing everything else and it can leave the impression that the kick has swing on it

Re: usb or firewire for external soundcard

thank you for the suggestion, that beast looks wicked

£700 is still way too out of my budget

it will mostly be used for production with perhaps the occasional performance out on my macbook once i get everything sounding crisp

anything out there for those of us with lighter wallets?

Re: usb or firewire for external soundcard

Re: apc with another midi controller

fixed it now, but the bar within ableton showing you available clips is now orange and the clip launch buttons are now orange, is this due to it being treated as a secondary controller?
