RE: 808 & 303 prices 20-04-2009 10:37 Forum: Hardware

£800 - £1000 last time I checked.......depends on the condition though.

They're great for a live setup and if I had the money i'd get one.... but I agree with Ghost. If you're working almost exclusively in software, there's not much point. Just get some really high quality 808 samples and use your sampler.

The book is 100000000000000000000000000000000 times better than the film....thought the film was more than disappointing after reading the book. The book goes places that the film can never touch. The book also has some scenes which I'm not sure could ever been shown on screen Devil

Nice to see she hasn't lost her sense of humour.

Apparently Jade's cancer is eating away at her brain now.

definitely make your own.

or use my trick, get an FM radio transmitter - the type they sell for MP3 players etc

Record whatever you want (either in real time or otherwise) transmit it over radio and re-record it, with the radio slighty tuned out for real radio static.

Recorded a bunch of songs like this. Awful quality but amazing sound.

Maybe we (the contestants) could make one big sample pack from all the sounds created out of the original break, after all it is original material and you've been using it in a tune already so you probably won't use it a second time.

Every sample in the pack would carry the authors name, e.g.
Break1(Binary Havoc).wav

So you won't be forgotten by future generations Big Grin

Any ideas on this?

Sounds like a really good idea. Don't know if i'll finish my track (a certain little boy is taking up most of my free time at the moment Big Grin ) but hopefully i'll at least have some samples for the pack.

I'm finding it quite challenging and fun.

yeah man they're rock solid. I've seen them thrown around, stamped on, crushed with stacks, dribbled on, screamed into and they take it. Without a flinch in quality too. Probably one of the best mics ever made for amateur productions and live work.

SM58 is a dynamic mic. It doesnt need phantom power.

Powered mixers are usually referred to as the type that have a built in amplifier to power speakers. Ususally to power a PA a gigs etc.

You wont need this at home if you have active monitors.

Any decent mixer will have phantom power anyway, it's only the really little ones ie 4 channel behringers, tapco etc and other low end mixers. Even so for yourself they would be fine as you have a dynamic mic anyway.

The SM58 is usually used as a stage vocal mic - you'll see them pretty much everywhere as they're great for live use. Good enough quality for pub & small venue gigs, club mc'ing. They're really durable as well. I've done live demo recordings with SM58's both on vocals and (unfortunately) on guitar also. They're good enough for a first demo or capturing a live performance for reference. You wont get amazing recordings from it.

Having said that for home use, with vocal and instrument recording you'll probably find the sounds quality more than acceptable. I've done a couple of bedroom recordings with really old Shure dynamics and they came out pretty well.

Those are some awesome tips Ghost. Smile

It's all about layering your hits, layering your breaks and layering hits on top of your breaks. There's lots of information about layering kicks & snares on this forum already. Do a search and you'll find lots of useful info.

I agree with Ketz too, choosing your samples wisely is also important. Try to use the highest quality possible. You can always degrade but can never uprade the quality of a sample.

Use effects - overdrive, distortion, saturation (sparingly - don't over do it) to give your beats some crunch.

Use compression and EQ. This has been explained already. Again loads of info here on both of these.

Also with Redrum & NNXT you can send your individual outs into EQs and compressors and process hits individually. Then use the line mixer to create sub mixes and apply send effects (ie reverb & delay) from there. I usually group my drums in a combinator patch.

12-03-2009 12:58 Forum: Ableton Live

I'm rockin this at the moment and I must say like the previous versions - I love it. I find it really easy to compose in session view, then build my arrangement from there.

The new drum rack is great, the ability to process each hit individually is a big improvement.

Still find the sequencer a little frustrating at times (I still think the MIDI sequencing in Logic is by far the most intuitive of any sequencer I've used - logic, cubase, fl studio, live, reason)

It seems a little processor heavy. Especially when I start using 3rd party VST's. I was able to have a lot more in Logic 5 before my CPU load was too high.

MIDI latency is lower than in Reason. Same MIDI interface.

Gotta love using acappellas. So easy to get them in time. Love it.

Started messing about with this last night. It really pushes your creativity in sample mangling and effects processing. It was somewhat easier than I thought to completely chnage the sounds. Just a little worried about making those drums really beefy...we'll see though Wink

Hang on, it's just one break and thats it? 10 second sample or whatever then make every sound from the track from it?

Sounds interesting, Just checkin I got it right.

Going to involve lots of creative sampling and processing.

Can't promise I'll have loads of time to do it, and may not finish, but i'll certainly give it a go.

I would if I could.

My dad still uses his film slr sometimes but I think he prefers to use digital slr nowadays as it's much faster and as you say, you can touch up the photos.

I don't really touch mine up.
At most I may add a slight bit of unsharp mask, crop and do channel mixer conversion for realistic black and white.

*also it costs between €20-30 per film developing over here in Spain. Had a film camera when moved here. expensive.

No i agree, and I think that there are a lot of people who were proficient at using film before the onset of digital for whom it's a natural progression but still have the technical ability.

I just see so many kids (i'm talking about my cousin really, but many still) that pick up a digital SLR take a few crappy photos and think they're Henri-Cartier Bresson.

It just pisses me off, I don't know why! Confused
