  1. It looks like the price in the US for the sampler is going to be about $400 http://www.kraftmusic.com/korg-electribe-sampler-production-station-bonus-pak.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=merchant&utm_campaign=kor-electribesbp&gclid=Cj0KEQjwhLCgBRCf0fPH043IlJwBEiQAf8P8U907HpjvW7embGS-KuDLVn_voGWYLLnW2373kdQJ2gsaAsiG8P8HAQ http://www.novamusik.com/korg-electribe-sampler-production-station-cable-kit.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=merchant&utm_campaign=kor-electribesck&gclid=Cj0KEQjwhLCgBRCf0fPH043IlJwBEiQAf8P8UwNzayXDrpadgjcmhLkkJQX9XNwAERhQw4W0L--xYK0aAur08P8HAQ
  2. Well it seems they listened to those who were complaining about the price: http://www.propellerheads.se/paywhatyouwant/
  3. Actually in the announcement they state: "Version 5.5 will be a free update, and it is based on many improvements that we have made to Reaktor recently. It also has significant new synthesis capabilities that can literally take a lifetime to explore - both conceptually as a builder, and sonically as a sound designer and musician." Here's the Link So i think it will actually be a free update (which is a nice surprise).
  4. yeah i ended up buying this (mainly because I have wanted Reaktor forever) and it was probably the best purchase i have made for the purposes of creating music.However i haven't started using anything from the library, does anybody have any recommendation for effects that would be good for ambient sounds?
  5. Same thing here although i got Alchemy instead of Zebra (during the camel audio group buy).
  6. I've tried it and it's still a cpu hog, I have a pretty new (bought it in january) 2.2ghz core 2 duo with 2GB of Ram with windows XP set to "Home/Office Desk" and one patch from the jupiter 8V uses 15-20% of my cpu standalone with the newest version, in comparison FM8 which i own uses 1-2% and Massive uses 10% using the demo. i love the sound of it, and would buy it but it's just too big of a cpu hit
  7. This will go perfectly with this new refill that came out today http://www.propellerheads.se/remote.cfm?sI...ticle=accordion
  8. Honestly, it really depends on what their budget is and whether or not they want hardware or software, if money is no object and they are willing to go the software route, a dedicated computer (meaning no internet or word processing) running Reason with a keyboard controller would probably be the way to go. if they don't have the budget for that (so let's say they have 5-600 dollars) I would look into one of the electribes ( either the SX or MX depending on what they want either synthesis or sampling) would probably be their best bet.
  9. I've had a couple of names, When i was doing more boards of canada/ambient hip hop stuff i was going by the name "The Future's Hope for Tomorrow" which has to be one of the worse band names of all time Now that i;m making more electroish/house music I'm looking for a new name, leaning towards a full version of my current board name "Atari Technology" (but that may have copyright issues)
  10. you should probably go dell, If you don't need a 17 inch screen i just got a dell inspiron 1520 with 2.2GHZ core duo windows xp 2 gigs of ram and an 250 GB hard drive for $1099 plus tax that would leave you $8-900 for an external hard drive and a firewire audio interface.
  11. I looked at thinkpads but for a machine with almost the same spec (it had xp professional instead of home) it would have cost me $150 more than the dell for the same spec. so would it be worth it to spend the extra cash? how long do you plan to own it? is it going everywhere or just around the house? are you a nerd? thinkpads tend to be very solid, have neat little widgets (keyboard light) and a nice feel but if you can't tell a mac from a pc, feel won't matter that much to you, and if you get a new laptop every two years, a dell could probably do you fine. Actually i want the computer to last for a while so a powerbook would be better? i don;t move it around much (it usually lives on my desk) and i know the difference between a mac and pc it's just that the improvements in FL studio 8 make it more useful than learning a whole new sequencer and OS.

  13. I do not know if it's different in the UK, but in the US both dell and lenovo/IBM still sell laptops with xp pre installed. and what i've heard is that if you buy a PC with vista business edition for the aforementioned sellers or HP you can get a "downgrade" disc for XP.
  14. Well if the limit is two GB my price goes down to $1290 with tax, so would that be better in terms of cost vs. power?
  15. With tax about $1440, also with xp is the ram limit 2 or 3 GB of RAM? becasue if it's 2 that would change the price.
  16. Well i'm getting a new laptop, i was thinking about getting a macbook (and switching to logic) , after hearing about FL studio 8 (mainly it's beatslicing feature) I;ve decided to stick with PC, i'm going to be running Reason 4, FL studio 8 and a couple of sample libraries so this is the laptop that i'm looking at (keeping in mind that i always regreted that my last laptop was not powerful enough) From Dell Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T7500 (2.2GHz/800Mhz FSB/4MB cache) Windows® XP Home 3GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz Anti-glare, widescreen 15.4 inch display Speed: 160GB SATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) Free Fall Sensor CD / DVD writer (DVD+/-RW Drive) is this laptop powerful enough not just to run what i want to right now, as well as being powerful enough for the future?
  17. After checking KVR i'm reducing the price of this to $100+Shipping
  18. I'm seeling fy copy of FM8 upgraded from FM7 for $150. everything is there except that the box are a bit dinged but everything in the box is fine. $150 or best offer
  19. I'm also considering a core2duo, but my problem is most of the programs i run are 32 bit, so how much will my performance differ from my current laptop (AMD 2800+ from about 3 years ago), also in other news i;ve heard that dell has gone back to selling XP desk and laptops
  20. From what i've heard/tried with dubstep , the trick to getting the generic throbbing bassline sound is to use the mod section to hook up the frequency of your filter to you lfo rate, and then set the LFO rate/amount to where you get the throbbing sound you want. other than that i don't know much of what kind of production (although i would guess a good bit of distorsion would help).
  21. The thing is I just need to record my synth, If the headphone out on my UA-20 didn;t break i'd still be using it, I don't record vocals or an non synth instruments, (and i've tied nicer setups such as the mbox) so what people consider cheap (for recording guitar or vocals works for me, so i;d think that something like the firebox would be overkill.
  22. I've had two USB audio interfaces, one the UA-20 had it's headphone port break, and the other one the Speedio never could record, so i need to buy a new Audio Interface if i want to record my micron, so i was looking at the audiophile usb, had anybody used it, and is it any good, or would i be better off just using Reason and FM8 for my synth needs and get an axiom for a midi controller (as i can't make music without a midi controller)
  23. I tried Recording in audacity as well and that just caused my computer to crash,
