I take what you're getting at, but I'd point out that software (either in the M1 or a computer) isn't 'designed' wth any specific convertors in mind. Convertors do sound different but there isn't really anything that can be done to make the software 'work' with them any differently. The software ge...

. Amen, brother! :) . but you can visit VSE and p**n on a shitty digital 8 track recorder (which is still a computer), oh and they are more expensive than proper computers. Not on the used market. You can get a Roland VS 1680 that can record 8 tracks at once in 24 bit for around $300 and you get ph...

ableton mentioned that them and cycling '74 are going to work together on some new software. this is cooler potentially than Live or Max/MSP, the two coolest pieces of music software I've ever seen (although not neccessarily the coolest looking I've seen, as far as Max goes). one word: boring. if ma...

Korg ps-3300

the third could be a sampler, but if this doesn't cover sequencing than an mpc for sure, but probably a fizmo or similar beast. i guess if i have my mac on top of the rest than a sampler is redundant

the z1 doesn't really sound like the ms2000, it's pretty digital but it's really fun for a lot of pad-type sounds. get the expansion card, 18 voices is sweet. It also sounds great through a filter. It also is handy with string, brass-type and rhodes sounds. samp...

a mk was my first synth (hardware-wise) and for a long time I never used it, except as a vocoder. I ended up trading it for an ms2000, and never looked back. not that they suck, but the hands-on control is very refreshing, and I like the sound. I find it makes very smooth, not-too-present percussion...

this is mine, done on the PEK. 4 oscillators detuned slightly, mono patch-the unison is just too scary. all saw waves, filter 60%, res 50%, tuned feedback 50% wet and freq 48. distortion 18%, delay 1-3 high feedback low amount & time. no external fx (as if it needs any).

Programming drums-PEK

I want to use my evolver to do more drum sounds, but it seems like kind of a b***h to program these kinds of sounds on a keyboard. I guess I'm used to having an x0x sample in a soft drum machine or something as a starting point, but I'm kind of sick of the sounds I've been getting from that approach...

actually if you want to set the midi clock to your live drummer I think the KP3 has an auto-beat detect feature that can send midi clock out to other devices based on an audio input- useful for syncing to vinyl. kp3 would go first in chain and output to input down the line- no more than 3 devices id...

I feel like discrepancies in timing are what drummers are for, and I'm not looking for that in a drum machine. I would rather have a less jittery clock. Would you decide your M-Audio soundcard is good enough compared to an Apogee master clock or something similar? because there's really very little ...

s-612 questions

I was wondering if you can save a sample on the s-612 after you power it off. There's no save function and I can't find the manual anywhere. Anyone have a pdf or something? thanks

Pro Tools is much more like a traditional tape-machine-and-mixer setup, it's stable (never crashed on me when I've been recording) the bussing system is extensive but well ordered and the mix engine sounds good, much better than Live's. Not to say that Live's is awful, but I can hear the difference...
