new to the land of looping
i'm relatively new to looping and the actual composition/performance of
music in general. i've been working with a combination of various
software-based solutions for a little over a year now and badly want to
dive into hardware. i've primarily been working with fruityloops (i have
this sneaking suspicion that there are a million individuals quite like
myself :), sound forge, and various software synths.
i know this is an extremely broad question, but where would anyone
recommend i begin in terms of hardware? i mean in the most general sense
-- i don't mean specific pieces/brands of hardware, just general types of
hardware (synths, samplers, drum machines, combos, etc.). i've done
mostly a cross-breeding of trance, pop (pop in that my work generally has
vocals...not really pop in any other way, so i suppose the "pop"
description is somewhat tenuous), drum'n'bass, with a somewhat noticeable
warp records influence. i'm looking to hardware because i'm becoming
increasingly fed up with the noticeably poorer sound quality i get from
being entirely software-based.
again, just looking for advice, seeing as i've noticed that a large
portion of the people on this list seem extremely helpful and
knowledgeable (certainly moreso than myself).
thanks very much...hope the person with the gig at knitting factory got
everything up and running...that sounded rough...
