Komplete kontrol a61

Post by phil@40 » Wed Feb 06, 2019 12:35 pm

Hi guys I'm back after a long absence, I've just bought native instruments komplete control a61 which comes with whacks of software.

My question is it possible with just one or two keyboards and software.
The software with this new keyboard contains thousands of sounds etc so just wondering if I have enough gear to possible some music together.

Thank you

I have -
Komplete kontrol a61
Akai mpk25
Ableton 9
And various software with the new toy

Are you asking if you have enough gear to make music? Lets just say yes and leave it at that.

You have 10x the gear I had when I first started. I managed to create a good 100+ tracks using a Pentium 133 (family computer), a pair of Sony walkman headphones and 5 floppy disks of samples. To get more samples I needed to use the computers in the Library at our school or record my own with a microphone made from a telephone. No plugins at all, they weren't a common thing.

If you cannot make something with what you have, you probably need to look at a different hobby.

Oh mate - I was so much fancier than you. I used my headphones as a mic.
