Re: ASR X Pro

If you're not using the sequencer, why not use ASR-10 instead of X? I'm actually asking; I've never had either machine so I don't know.

Re: Noise, Drone.

I know you said you have narrowed it down to the synths mentioned in the OP, but it's breaking my heard to have this thread about noise/drone sounds and no mention of the nord modular series, especially a micromodular in this case. Seriously, I can't imagine doing noise/drone work without nord modul...

Re: Any mini keyboard/tabletop samplers with an ADSR envelop

There are some ios apps (nanostudio, beatmaker 2, prob more) that will do it, if you can handle using an ipod touch for this.

Re: Which Nord Modular

Which MIDI interface is known to work best with MM? The UNO will work if you don't need to use the editor at the same time as you sequence from Logic. Just slide the MIDI OUT from the UNO over to the MIDI IN on the MM. If you need to do both at the same time, any interface with two MIDI outs will w...

Re: Abundance Paradox

forget about making music for a bit and just create sounds, lots of them.
This. It's good advice whether you're new to your gear and need to learn it, or whether you're a seasoned production veteran with feeling bored or uninspired by your stuff. Do it.

Re: workstation + midi contorler / or? [help]

E-MU Command Station and appropriate ROM(s) and a MIDI controller if you need a keyboard. I don't know which ROM(s) would be right for the sounds you'd want but some searching around would probably clear that up.

Re: Which Nord Modular

I started with a micro modular, and then got another micromodular, and then I sold both and got a G2 engine (G2 Rack) and it's my favorite synth ever and I use it for pretty much everything. I agree with basically everything said in this thread (except about the editor being overly complex). However...

Re: Elektron Octatrack!

Personally I'd be willing to drop $1000+ for a dedicated hardware version of ableton live, which this so far seems to be, only on steroids The Octatrack is not Ableton Live. Ableton Live can play more than 8 samples at once. I should have been more clear by quoting that in the first place and let m...
