What software do any of you guys use to make music on your pc’s?
Im a bit of a late comer to this ,but have been messing about with Rebirth recently,which is fun in its own way,but not overly user friendly.
Any thoughts on Ableton in particular?….although a bit different to the likes of Rebirth,its meant to be a doddle to useMarch 13, 2004 at 1:56 am #1061689
wicked,simply and powerful tool go for it……..March 24, 2004 at 5:15 am #1061687

okay,heres a link 4 the free download if you haven’t got it already
http://download.com.com/3000-2170-10255746.html you should look at the layout its similar to ‘fruity loops and sonic foundrys acid’..
i think you have to set the sound card to the preferences/audio properties page(leave the other settings only set the output
in the 1st instance the page you see(sessions-allows you to preview your wavs16 bit and above please) is not really the main page we’ll
be working with
1.go to view click on arrange the page will switch to the arranger
2.go to left click on 1this is abelton samples click on oneand drag it across to track one
3.hover your mouse over the black box above the tracks and drag the box wider creating your loops
4.top of the screen there are three boxs
1st box bpm this you can change
3rdloopselection click on loop(center button) and play your track1 wav,it will play in a loop(you can adjust the length of the sample wav and offset)double click on the s/wav once it’s in the arranger …
carry on loading wavs to the other tracks painting kick drum where you require kick drum and snare,guitar,piano where you feel practise
