    Hey all........ Yup,it's been a while.
    szvook I am so happy that you actually exist.
    Last,year,I almost thought I was the only one on this forum who plays electronica.
    they all got me preaching in the desert.
    I understand you play with a band?
    I'm very curious to see how it works.do you play aphex/squarepusher kind of stuff? I do
    I also saw someone mention autechre...
    I'm back in the game!!!!!

    www.javamusic.comwww.javamusic.com if want to put up your music, the site/service is free and quite fast to get your tracks up (MP3 format only) - unless you have your own website.

    Take care.

      Hey..
      I was just listening to your tracks....wow ..
      Man! I wish I had my own band,we would have kicked your asses .I used to work with a dj/programmer ,and we did some pretty good stuff,but we didn't really get along as friends,so it's over now. solo but happy about it .I'm trying to find a way to trigger everything myself and become as much independant as possible.I try to create my own sounds too.right now,I'm focusing on d'n'b at 174 or faster,just like in drukqs
      I don't have any music online,but I think I will soon.

        Thanks for the critique.

        If you are thinking about working solo and having the ability to trigger everything by your self, then you might want to consider adding a sampler and maybe using a SPD-11 or something similar and you will have an arsenal of sounds/loops to go along with your TD-10 sounds. I have seen/heard Akiro Jimbo working in this matter and he sounded like a full band.

        D'n'b at 174 bpm you say, not bad. Drop a post when you have some material available, I would enjoy hearing your stuff.

            [b]Can you give me an example of what kind of tune would be D'n'B (Drums & Bass, I presume?)@ 174bpm? What tune? Using this as a barometer. Thanx!

                      could
                      your drums are not as hot on the recordings as some might want you have when providing your music. What do you use to record your drums?

                        Practice makes perfect, that and a few pieces of gear that work to your liking. Yeah the $ needs to be factored in as well, but at times you have to take the plunge if you are in need of gear to help your quest.

                        The tracks I heard seemed to have loops running underneath, so I guess they were the tracks that your bro did. I did not get a chance to listen to all of the tracks from the mp3 site, which tracks have you playing?

                        As far as Behringer - I do like their products, but I haven't played with many. The ones that I used and liked are/were mostly tube technology based gear, I like the warmth from the Behringer tube gear. The Behringer name seems to do ok in the market although many will post good and bad experience with them - but that seems to be common with many companies at times. The higher-end models get good reviews and are used by pro's and Behringer is no different and Behringer's gear is getting more noticed and used right now so I think they are doing something right, although a long and heated debate is going on between them and Mackie about how Behringer might have ripped of Mackie in some of the design features and that could make some buyers skeptical about Behringer. I have not heard their monitors to be honest, but I have heard from some that they are ok and seem to do the job well, it all depends on how LONG they work well and if pushed how they perform - are you getting the TRUTH B2031 monitors?

                        PS: It's actually an East side gangster who has expanded to the west.

                            Here is a link to some excellent reviews of powered nearfield monitors by Rip Rowan. http://www.prorec.com/prorec/article...256AE100044F41 IMO Rip's ears are dead on and you may find the short and (I think) very accurate summaries helpful. Keep in mind that you will probably want to gravitate toward monitors with superior bass response and particular ability to handle transients (for electronica).

                            If you want to stay in the price range of the Truths, you might consider something like the Event 20/20s. But if you can afford them, get the Mackie HR824s, period. I just bought a brand new second pair for my new computer setup. They are far and away, the best value for money in monitors (and you will see that Rip [like most others] agrees enthusiastically).

                            BTW, I have a great 12:8:2 (12 track/8 bus) mixer that I will probably be selling if you are interested. Sounds like you could use one.
