    Just interested in what kit people are using to produce their tunes, 'cos I'm impressed with some of the stuff I've downloaded from people here. Softsynths users or hardware purists?

    This is my setup:
    Cubase 5
    Soundforge 4.5
    Reaktor 3 (this softsynth is a work of pure genius!)
    HALion (soft-sampler)
    Battery (soft-drumsampler)
    Various plugin FX for cubase
    M1 Korg (old, but still useful)
    PIII 800MHz 190Mb RAM
    SB Live soundcard (this needs changing)

    It seems to be mostly software, when considering how little I earn and the ease you can d/l things from the net, it's no surprise. ;) My PC can just about handle the load, but if I try and get too fancy with the FX or have too man softsynths running, it punishes me. I suppose that's the major drawback.

    Any Reaktor users out there?

    ive got a stick. and a parrot.
    i hit the parrot with the stick.
    im going to buy a nail when i can afford it. to put on the stick.

    and a bucket, for reverb.

    makes perfect sense to me anyway, its what producing is all about.

    check my shit

    8O i find if u can hold the pen very still, when u move the paper against it some small marks appear on the paper, dunno what use this might be but it seems like a promising innovation so i thought id share it with u all. maybe someone can figure out something really good it can be used for apart from changing white paper to blue paper?

    Maybe you could record the noise that comes from the pen when it scratches against the paper?

    Call me oldskool, but my setup used to be SoundForge 4 and FastTracker 2. Oh, and a bit of Buzz occasionally.
