Get a room!

I miss my 1210's. Had to sell them and my CDJ's. I managed to hang on to my Yamaha AN1x, found a SY85 at a car boot and am saving for a Raveolution and a Korg EA-1... Tried Ableton but its too computery for a dafty like me.


You're only jealous of the man love! :lol: :D

I use Ableton as a live mixing tool rather than a production tool, its so powerful I prob only use about 1% of its capability :D

I've got a Roland Groovebox MC303 somewhere, got a ridiculous tax return many moons ago after paying emergency tax for a whole year, so went and blew it on toys which the Roland was one of, never used it to its full capability either. I should get it rigged up to Ableton and have a mess about with it :)

When I get in I'll start a DJ thread, see who else spins em. Man love as standard! I'd hazard a guess that we mostly ride Pace's?! It's a matter of good taste :wink: I'd love the time to source some pukka old school hi Fi gear! What's the top end pioneer gear from the early 90's? Would really like that sitting in my lounge.

Sound cloud! It's the future. Although I'm unsure how to access my account apart from my iphone. There's some awesome mixes, producers and artists... and it's all free :wink:

maybe just fi ? :P

It's a bullshit term Dyna - lots of expensive Hi Fi sounds rubbish and nothing like real life sounds, so if you enjoy it that's all that matters.
..computer sourced audio can sound great and better than CD, depending on resolution and compression.

I'm ashamed to admit for a short period i started to buy music just cos of the good recording........after a while i thought yeh sounds great hi fi bells and whistles, but NO i want to listen to the bands i like even though their records/CD's were poorly recorde mostlyd, it was very hard to find a system that played good stuff impressivly and poor stuff without this hiss and the rough taking pride of place. It is possible though,just, but i would prefer to have 2/3 systems.
