Use the puter for interwebz and the Portastudio for band awesomeness. Even better, sell the puter and use cell phone for interwebz. All the cool kids are doing it.

So, somewhat related, I tried to see what it would take to let Ubuntu run my Fireface. OMG. Audio on Linux is a friggin' hellhole, don't even go there.

Get a Mac.

Which ironically is partially Unix based.

(But not *Linux* based. Thankfully.)

Bringing this thread back from the dead. Gosh, has it really been almost 4 years since we talked about this???

Anyway. Free/Cheap software. Is it normal that I have Maschine with some really nice drum sounds, yet I've been using free Hydrogen to come up with some ideas for songs? It works a lot like a hardware drum machine which is what I used for so many years, and it's one software where it is actually better/faster to use the software compared to the hardwares.

I'm only intending to use it for demos and there's not a lot of sounds available for it but out of what's out there I'm using what is called the Forzee Stereo Drums that a guy created with nice velocity switch and just a nice feel to it.

It also helps that while I'm waiting for something to run at work I can just open it up and make changes to songs I'm currently working on. The next step will be to just add some guitars and vocals and I'll have a demo. If I get to record it for real, keyboards will come in...

I might be getting back into music again, you guys :)

:Thumbs up:

Once I'm done with school.. me too. :lol: :wave:

I'd like a step sequencer, that box from IK multimedia. etc. Live works really well for me. but honestly, whatever keeps you moving and having fun is all that matters, I've learned this far into the game.
