without even being a synth builder myself, i can vouch for reaktor. i initially got interested because of the synth building potential but soon realized i'd rather not get that deep into it, and just write the music. however, the huge array of instrument and effects that come with reaktor 5 is absol...

i myself am just getting started with live coming from a few years of getting to know logic. i'm finding that yes, indeed, it could very well replace your daw as your go-to production program. i'm finding that not only does it have many (not all) of the features i use most in logic, or alternatives,...

grainshifter, to uninstall, run the installer again and chose uninstall instead of install. i just uninstalled it to try iscroll2, which won't install on my newer powerbook, so back to sidetrack it is. i know what you mean, it's hard letting go of the two-finger scroll, i have it on a newer powerboo...

i realize it very old, but i simply haven't come across it on any forum or heard of it mentioned anywhere before yesterday. and although the scrolling isn't anything new for those of us with a newer trackpad, i'm still grateful for it because the taps stay in place! i was going crazy with the pointe...

for powerbook users, you must check this out!

It's called sidetrack, and it's shareware. (15$ registration fee- you get a reminder once in a while, but fully functional until you register) it's a driver for the trackpad on powerbooks, and it kicks ass! ever get frustrated that the pointer jumps when you click the track pad? it drove me nuts. al...

johnpitcairn, i feel somewhat dense here, but i'm still somewhat unclear as to what this means in terms of regular use. example: i've got an endless knob on the mk controlling a synth filter let's say. i make an adjustment on the knob. i then change to another softsynth and use the same encoder on a...

ok, wait a tick. what's this about the endless encoders being absolute? i'm not sure what this means. i assumed that since they are endless, when you change the parameter a knob is controlling, there will be no sudden jump in the value (as there is with a fixed knob). is this not the case? please te...

ya that alesis does look quite nice, the thing it's missing for me, however is the drum pads. like i said, it was drum-trigger pads i was initially looking for, and along with 360 dials and a keyboard, microkontrol is looking good. so as husker was asking, how are the pads compared to trigger finger...

thanks, i appreciate the replies. i'm looking specifically at the micro because it's smaller, since i already have a 49 key key board. i like the portability of the micro. i also like to have a keyboard with different style keys as i find it can often inspire as far as bass or lead lines, because it...

sorry maxi, forgot to check this post again. in answer to your question, i'm not sure of the actual time in ms of latency, but i play both guitar and bass into the firebox while software monitoring with effects, and it's fine for me. and i've been playing for many years, so i'd be a bit picky. i thi...

that's strange, on my powerbook, the audio has been fine (except low mic levels.. which i haven't figured out the cause yet). but latency is quite good, i have no problem playing my bass or guitar, or singing with effects in real time. i have a couple little wee issues, but sound wise its good for m...

i guess i should double check my subject heading before posting. umm.. so korg that is. aside from the effects that come with it, i'm also curious how people find the continuous knobs. i've heard mixed things about the accuracy of the 'infinite' knobs, so i'm wondering if those on the microkontrol a...

kork microkontrol... thoughts?

i'm thinking about buying the korg microkontrol. opinions/advice anyone?

i'm also curious specifically about the bundled effects that come with it. are these quite good sounding and usable?

thanks,
