What kind of stuff does Richard use on his albums? I\'ve
read that he makes his own equipment, but I want to compose
music similar to his and I don\'t know how to make
electronics work. Anyway, is it possible to make drum and
bass, jungle, trance, etc. without a computer and
turntables? If so, what do I need?


po{e} from the uk on 2001-05-26 22:51 [#00007265]

well, the old group Kraftwerk made their own synthesizers
from old electronic organs.

i bet i am the only one here who has heard of them, they are
the freking pioneers of idm, without them, there would be no
Aphex or other idm.

I saw them on tv, does that count ?


SWAI from Denmark on 2001-05-27 14:41 [#00007301]

And yes instead of answering the question you go blabbering
on about something else....

I think that you should go buy the nastiest computer you can
get your fingers on, and get the following programs

"fruityloops" from

and "cooledit 2000" from

fruityloops is pretty cheap to register, and if you can get
and old version of cooledit you can register it illegally.

With a little pracise and imagination you can do anything
with those programs. is the next step, if you want more.
software synthesizers and stuff like that!

hope this helps you

respect to swai....
i have also heard that afx was making he's own


SWAI from Denmark on 2001-05-27 14:52 [#00007303]

it is true that afx made his own synthesizers, but he also
said that computers today are so powerfull that its simply
pointless to go analouqe...

cylob and other rephlex artists feels like this 2!

thats cool, if everyone starts using soft-synths Ill be
heaps more original :)


rob fragilenine from laughable butane bobs house on 2001-05-28 02:49 [#00007333]

just buy some analogue equipment and get someone to modify
it for you... or just use effects. I have an old Casio
CT-470 keyboard with really shitty drum sounds, I put it
through distortion and reverb and it sounds like the drums
from Acrid Avid Jam Shred and Cow Cud Is A Twin... or you
could always go for the soft synths, which most of the time
sound cold and hollow (ie. Rebirth's 808 bassdrum needs more
Just download samples like everyone else... and use FT2

1. do not use fruityloops. it will make you go pow pow pow
powpow pow pow. very un-original.
2. do not download samples. record your own from your
surroundings and from the tv-set.
3. don´t be afraid of noises. they come in handy. and
4. spread your songs all over the god damn earth.
5. start as you mean to go on. otherwise, you will sound
like shite. and people won´t listen because its shite.


od from perth on 2001-05-28 15:41 [#00007370]

i hate them
i know its just my opinion and all
im not saying theyre shit
im saying i fuckgin hate them
and devo and Can (or however you spell it) and all of that.
hes right tho. everyone has heard of kraftwerk. ive seen a
fair few discussions on here bout them


Gary from naked in a bank vault on 2001-05-28 17:01 [#00007371]

I'm shocked.........hate is very strong
term, especially when talkin bout kraftwork + can, i'm so
upset i think i'm
gonna have a shower!


Leo DeBoe from somewhere in the States. on 2001-05-28 22:27 [#00007403]

Fruity Loops is very nice, and not so unoriginal. It now
supports VST, and you can do just about anything with it.
I've stopped using CuBase!


rob fragilenine from a moo horse farm on 2001-05-29 01:24 [#00007413]

cubase is shit... i hate it, i only use FT2 and ACID, and
some other programs.
