Ascension check PMs, I've never finished a tune so I don't want to waste people's time with listening to my half-arsed attempts

Good thread. 
 
In case anyone's interested, MethLab are giving away from free samples if you sign up to their newsletter and that. 
I downloaded them this morning and they sound OK, if a bit aggressive for the kind of stuff I try and make.

It was called jungle in those days, not drum and bass. That came later

Pfft, anything but half arsed mate. As I've replied, I think you've got some good stuff there, should post it up IMO.

This is the best production video, ever. I just love his whole attitude towards it.
 
All I've learnt from this is that I need to smoke more weed and play X-Box.

Upgraded to Reason 8 (and then a week later 9 cos I got a free update) after using V4 for the last 8 years. Loving it so far, if only there were more hours in the day

I did gone and made a tune wunce

It was uneventful

Production makes me so mad. I have the technical side down but cant really offer anything new to the scene and found myself imitating others. That's no good for me. If I can't make something fresh and interesting I'm not interested

sigs have returned

Didn't really do anything with them though :( 
Here's one:

Couldn't imagine doing it now, spending 6 hours a day at work on a pc there is no way in hell I'd want to spend hours more at home twiddling tiny knobs on a screen

Need more time to do this. Would also help if my studio wasn't still boxed up.

I recently started Fruity Loops and made more progress than ever before, although all that consisted of was a few short loops. I really should just try to knuckle down and spend a real amount of time on it
 
This is basically me in general:
gutlessrhyme
Quite often I fire up reason with the intention of learning how to actually use it, take about an hour to compose a basic 4x4 kick drum and hihat, get bored then put it away for another 6 months.

At least when you begin DJing you're dogshit but you still get to listen to decent music. With production I'm just staring at a load of buttons and knobs for an hour

 
 
I really like your 2 tunes Ascension. If I could make anything 10% that good after 4 months then I'd be well proud.
 
I'm tempted by this Maschine business but worried I'd do the same thing described above but for quite a lot of money. Have you got any good videos of it in use?

The thing that suits you most depends on the sort of person you are really.
 
For me I've always wanted to learn 'in the box' first i.e. purely with software. Keyboard, mouse and cheap midi keyboard is fine for that. For me personally I don't need a Maschine or something like the Ableton Push. If I got a Maschine I'd forever be wishing I was just interfacing direct with Ableton rather than having the Maschine interface sitting in the way, because Ableton racks are so quick to work with and logical for me. If you want to try out some fancy sidechain routing or add a multiband comp in Ableton you can, if you were working in Maschine you'd need to split into multiple Maschine channels in your DAW or do some fancy routing or manual automation which would slow things down for me.
 
With Maschine its beauty is the all in one approach, so if I wasn't using it for that it'd be destroying the point to try and use it as a dumb midi controller I think. I'd sooner get something like an MPC that is completely standalone and forces a different approach.
 
For some people though a Maschine massively speeds up the process and inspires new ideas. See all the 'maschine beat' videos on youtube to see how quickly a tune can come together.

I've got a Maschine Mk2 and have found my best way of working to be coming up with loops using the pads and inbuilt sounds and FX, then exporting the individual audio tracks to separate channels in Ableton and sequencing and mixing in there.

The Maschine sequencers not the best tbh.

It's definitely getting better with each release though. Variable length patterns within a scene makes it much better and there's a new concept of "song" or something in the next one which lets you place sounds across the arrangement outside of the scene structure.

All about fucking off any midi equipment and painfully scoring all the notes with a laptop touch pad.

Just started trying to get to grips with Ableton. I haven't written a track top to bottom on my own since about 2010 when I was using Cubase.
 
Ableton feels fucking loads different, but I'm very slowly getting scratching the surface.
 
Technical aspect of it was never my strong point anyway, I'm more of a concept, samples, arrangement + vibes guy.
