would you care to elaborate on your decision?

sorry, should have stated that that before.

i have debated this very question myself and ended up
getting a mac.

I have not got a mac so I use my PC.

When I purchased my computer I bought a PC as it was cheaper
and I had experience using one at work.

What do you use John ?


 

rubbish john from a septic tank on 2001-05-01 14:51 [#00005316]



well, it's nice of you to ask my dear wizard,
i've only just started out and all i have is my mac which a
paid a fat wad for, and i've been using some shitty little
sequencer to piece together some stuff - but as i've said
i'm only starting out and so everything i've produced so far
is not all that.
i'm interested in that new propellerheads software 'reason',
looks cool, and sounds quite cool from what i've heard on
the demo.
i only raised this topic after recently reading an artical
about luke vibert. he used an atari running cubase which is
now apparenly buggered, and he is wondering whether to get a
g4 power book because it has great potential for messing
about with sounds an' all that, which is nice, but he also
wonders is it actually worth it'
and now i'm wondering whether i made the right choice.

Anyone who makes music on a PC should go here ->
http://www.propellerheads.se/index.php3
and download a demo copy of the reather splendid Reason
v1.0. The best bit is when you hit the tab key!

I USE A MAC!!! The new Macinstosh G4. . awsome computer! Ive
beeun using macs and pcs for the last 12 years of my life,
everyday. And I can use both very very well. Inside and out.
I come to find that pcs... are better if you just want the
same old shit, and they have mostly all porducts made for pc
first. But in my experiances as well with others, Pcs are
much more unreliable, and are not really made for
Graphic/Music/Video editing, producing or making. Which is
what I do with mine. The new OSX [operating system] is for
the MAc, and its completly UNIX based... like the internet.
And so, it is BY FAR the most reliable thing out there at
all, faster too. [they also look better hehehe]. So in my
opinion to make music you should use a Macintosh. Quality
over Quantity my friends.

screw both...use analog...I do not prefer guessing at what
I'm doing...I like the feel of real knobs...real sythesizers
in my lap, caressing my bod...lol


 

[REFLEX] from Western Canada on 2001-05-02 00:51 [#00005347]



Quoth: Yes.. I agree with you!.. . Analogue!!! AHHH!!!!!
ahahahaha.. yes i would like to think that the "hands" on
aproah would be better.. ive dabbled with it... but want my
own shit.. what do ou reccomend?.. types of equipment and so
on?


 

Quoth from Lincoln on 2001-05-02 01:00 [#00005351]



anything made by Roland or Akai...if you can afford it, for
jesus fucking christ USE it.


 

Quoth from Lincoln on 2001-05-02 01:01 [#00005352]



well, shit...the Roland JP-8000, any old school analogue
keyboards like anything from the Juno or Jupiter series. The
Akai mpc2000 is fucking awesome...it's a midi production
sampler pretty much which can be sychronized with anything.

thanks.
i guess i haven't wasted all of my money, but it certainly
looks like i'm gonna have spend some more.
shit.

Hey hey,
just dropping by for a few minutes. Thought it was quite
surprising that this topic didn't get flooded with messages.
But hey never mind. ID Lab knows a big shit load about music
making with the PC I am presuming as well is collaborator
Wizards Teeth.

He's made some pretty cool tunes you should look up ID Lab
at MP3.com

My latest personal savings are slowly building up and will
go to a groove box when I get the change. Now there is
something worth looking at. I have barely ever used a Mac so
I can't really say anything about them, but I do know that
all of you budding PC Musicians can go to hitsquad.com and
download a lot of free stuff which should help U out.

I'll write down the name of the Groove Box I'm getting when
I remember what it called.

Laters.

Interesting conversation going on! I just got an MPC2000
for use with my Macs (a G3 powerbook & a blue&white tower).
What amazed me is that it still has a friggin' SCSI port!
No Firewire or USB! Anyone know how I can make this read a
Firewire drive?? You can check out my band at
www.mp3.com/thelyndales if any one is interested. Peace!
