Re: Stand-alone 8-bit sound engine/composer

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm going to look into Reaper further, I think I've heard good things about it in the past. Besides, I'm having issues with my hardware studio, and am starting to think going the software route would be more productive anyways. :|

Recording Issues

Ok, so I just bought a new computer. It's an HP, and is running Windows 7. I've got this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/behringer-u-control-uca202-usb-audio-interface/702540000000000 plugged into it. Everything works fine with it. Monitoring my music is fine, music I'm playing from the co...

Re: Stand-alone 8-bit sound engine/composer

Thanks for the suggestions, tekkentool! There's also LMMS which has a gameboy emulator as one of its native plugins. It's a completely free DAW too so don't worry about not having one. http://lmms.sourceforge.net/ I'm going to start with this one first. It looks like it will be useful for a lot of t...

Stand-alone 8-bit sound engine/composer

Ok first of all, I don't have a DAW, so an 8-bit VSTi is out of the question. But I'm very into the sound of 8-bit music. Are there any standalone programs out there that I can make 8-bit songs with? Either programs that are freeware, for sale, it's all good. I think I've heard about something on th...

Re: SubCon synth

Oh wow, seeing cEVIN and company release synth modules is the last thing I would expect out of them. So very cool. Cevin and the people he works with are true legends, and seeing them put out gear is totally awesome.

Problems with my Micron

So, I've got a LE Blue Micron. I bought it 6-7 months ago. Lately it's been giving me problems. I'll be running a sequenced song and the thing will freeze on a note and give me this: SORRY, REPORT ERROR 01800 This has happened twice last week, and 4 times this morning. What's the deal? What can do a...

Re: What are your thoughts on the Casio HT-6000? (Just got o

HT-3000 was my first ever synthesizer, I bought it new back in the late 80s. I don't really consider the 3000 (at least, not sure about the 6000) as a 'real' synthesizer, more a home keyboard with a pretty cool synthesizer section built in. And I don't remember it sounding particularly warm or powe...

Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

I just bought/received a DSI Evolver Desktop from nukeitfromorbit. Good communication with him, the unit was exactly as described, included everything promised, and was packaged very well. It also arrived very quickly. 5 star seller. :D

Re: mystified by genres

Well, first I'd like to welcome you to forums. Second, you've got a very nice track here. Great ambience and the glitchy percussion sounds are great. What did you use to make this track? Third, don't worry about genre classification too much. While I would refer to this as ambient, I don't think it'...

Re: Gear Envy.

As someone said before, I don't envy gear, I envy talent.

That said, I do lust after particular pieces of gear, but don't really plan to ever have a massive collection like some people have.

Re: TAPCO Mixers

Well, TAPCO's seem decent but I've just bought a Yamaha MG series mixer. I was particularly motivated by a review wherein the the guy said he had been using one for 10 years with no problems.

Thanks for the help and input guys.

Re: TAPCO Mixers

Thanks for the help Stab Frenzy. I'll avoid the Tapco mixers I'm seeing on eBay. Yamaha MG seems the way to go for me. They have a mixer that would suit my needs: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/yamaha-mg82cx-8-input-stereo-mixer-with-compression-and-effects Would this be a good choice? I'm...

Re: alesis micron & akai miniak

I really wouldn't recommend either of these models to a beginner. I have a Micron, and it's very complicated to program. If you don't know anything about subtractive synthesis, I would imagine it would be a nighmare to learn on. If you've heard demos of either, and like that sound, buy an Alesis Ion...
