damn i forgot ACID existed. I'm a hardware junkie so an entirely in the box setup will never suffice for me I'm too used to patchbays and mixing boards.

I use Cubase for softsynths and tempomapping and send MTC out to my MPC, setup all my parts on hardware and record into Soundscape which feels like a mixer to me.

If I had to genre my music it would be postpunk/darktechno or someshit. I spend more time programming video game style music just for my own amusement. I like to play around with polyrhythms and self generating patches but typically don't record that stuff as it usually lacks trajectory.

Next software purchase I want to make is this Pipe Organ software that sounds really good I forget what it's called. Next hardware piece I'm after is the Nord Wave 2

I have so much trouble doing vocals. That's why I keep doing noisecore.

I make beats but people always start talking trap with me. Most of my beats were made in 2007. I don't think trap was in existence at that time.

I'm more into Hurst cruiser beats again like three 6

For me vocals become easier the more structured my concept is.

If I start from nothing it usually goes beat, bassline, chords, melody, vocals, embellishments.

If you conceptualize an album title/concept and make up song titles that adhere to the theme it's easier to start flushing out individual subthemes or sidestories.

In my opinion the good music and songs already exist in potentiality it's just up to you the musician to uncover the tone rows and melodies that get your point across most concisely.

UI looked pretty cancerous in my opinion but I'm harsh and not very acidy. I hated Protools and Ableton too. Pretty sure I just hate computers in general honestly but I can't seem to get away from them. Half tempted to buy some tape and use some old tape machines my Dad has sitting around but I don't even know if it's being made in the size I would need. Only reason I use a computer at all to made music is the reverb plugins. Recording is inconsequential to me at this point as I don't care about making money and don't want an audience.

itís more of an all in one media player than a controller since you can use it with just USBs. itís great, i got sick of bringing my SB3 to gigs and wanted to get more comfortable with CDJs, which even tho iíve player for years never got enough time on them outside of gigs to get really used to them. anyway, itís great. absolutely phenomenal unit. would like to get my hands on CDJ-2000s and a DJM-900 but iíll have to save for a good while before spending around 5k on that set up.

If you're into that stuff I wouldn't get a nord wave 2

Maybe an ms20

I owned a vintage ms-20 and sold it. I have the software version which sounds the same to my ears. I owned both revs of the ms-20. rev1 is better for distortion sounds and processing, rev 2 is better for bass and leads.

The softsynths sound pretty damn analog to my ears lately. I'm not really lusting after any hardware currently so getting a nordwave 2 would just be me wanting to support Clavia. I really like the feel and look of their keyboards.

I think the Nordwave 2 uses a Fatar keyboard bed, which is the best yeh

But the Prophet 6 and OB6 both use the same keybed too and they're hands down the best synths money can buy

If you're committed to using softsynths though look into U-he's "Diva", it's pretty amazing, probably the most "analog" sounding softsynth going, does 4 hardware emulations really well

I played an OB-6 at Moog Music in Toronto and liked it a lot. If I had money I'd be looking for a used desktop version. It's a modern classic for sure.

I don't really care about analog or digital when it comes to synths as long it's musical and fun I'll coax something out of it. If I go to softsynths it's usually for emulations of vintage pieces.

I'd like to get into modular but it just seems like a money pit so I buy individual synths usually.

I hate fiddling around with gear now so I pretty much just use Ableton, VST's and an audio editor. Using u-he Diva a lot at the moment.

I have a Nord Lead2X, Digitakt,MPC1000, mics, bass and pedals. Feel guilty for not using them now.

I spent a lot of my 20's being on and off homelessness  so having a lot of posessions can start to bug me out a bit. Part of me feels like I don't deserve it and another part of me feels like it's unnecessary.
