DAW for a drummer?

Hello, My friend had an accident and will be unable to play drums for at least 6 months (he got both his legs broken). We'd like to collect some money and buy him a decent software to let him make music while recovering. I think we need it to be: - easy to use (he never used anything like that befor...

Also Yamaha PSS 780 (http://weltenschule.de/TableHooters/Yamaha_PSS-780.html). I would say that PSS-390 is better (easier editing for example), but it has no midi... Seems like there are as many who say PSS-380 is the best of the serie as those who favour PSS-780/480 :) I am with the latter. Nevert...

Have you thought using Mastering Studios eMastering services?. In finland they take ~50€/track. Yes, I have. If I had more time, I'd surely took advantage of their service. Will probably do so in future. For this particular project, I need to have everything ready... well yesterday :? Do You know h...

Brilliant in its simplicity! Topic, I mean. Once I noted my songs' tempos and it turned out that I use 101 more often than anything. Maybe it has something to do with subconsious (not sub- anymore if I wrote it) wish to be a kid again and watch Disney cartoons more often... Before I started making s...

How to create a master... without mastering tools???

Hello, I'm trying to be on time with my remix for some local contest. I've just compared my mix at its current state with the ones already uploaded and I've found out that it's the quietest of them all. Probably due to lack of mastering. Could somebody help me with such task: I need my recording to ...

I did not try it with bass or synth. I only read a review written by a bassist and he claimed that new version's three bass amp simulations are great. The new drum sounds are really good. Everybody on dedicated Yahoo! group agrees. And now they can be triggered through MIDI. I agree that there are t...

Hello, I wonder how many of You know, own and use this excelent piece of gear (http://www.rogerlinndesign.com/). I know there are quite a few guitar and bass players among us on VSE, so maybe I'm not alone ;) And it's not only for guitarists. For me it's a perfect connection between world of synths ...

Hi there!

Does anybody have anything to say about this software sampler? http://cascom.se/kl/plugins/soundberg.html

It's cheap, is it any good?

Thanks!

My first songs were made with Yamaha PSS-590, a two casette deck and an additional casette player. With those three units, without a mixer, I was able to make stereo recordings with a few layers of my playing :) This is still the setup I used for playing and composing for the longest period. When I ...

In one of MIDI tracks, in the channel strip (located in the lower left part of the screen in arrange window) click on INPUT. You should then get a few possibilities to choose from, and after taking MONO or STEREO You should have LOGIC and well... something, I can't remember really... Nevertheless, t...

The "oridinary sounding", is exactly the charm and inspiration as you have really professionally sounding (and no kidding, same logic chips as in old SY/TG- like SY22, TG100) rompler, with honkin' cool arrangements (just listen to "Pop" percussion, or "Fusion"). It was pretty much inspiring to me :...

PSS790 and 795 have bigger wave ROMs and far better samples- like choirs, guitars and far cooler piano (more of PSRx00 series-like). I know because I have 790 and had 590 as my first "brand" keyboard. PSS-590's piano is already cool (very cool for this price range) so maybe it's not that bad. I did...

PSS-380 is also said to be one of the best of PSS family. Doesn't have MIDI but many say it gives more sonic possibilities than 480/680/780. You have six (as far as I can remember) sliders to control parameters and it's really nice. I used to have one and I liked it. But prefered my 480 (which is th...
