Does anyone have a good recommendation for a MIDI USB for the computer so I can get all this stuff into Ableton Live?
    Isn't this possible with the keystep?

    If you're asking about a compact audio interface that would allow you to track into your computer while also give you additional MIDI ports, you really cannot do better imo than the SSL 2+ USB Audio Interface if you have a computer w/ USB-C ports. You only have 2 ins, but you've got a pair of SSL pre-amps, 2 headphone outs, MIDI I/O. It's just great.

    edit: actually, looking for a sec, I'm pretty sure you don't need to have USB-C port on your computer, you can just use a converter

    I don't know why I can't wrap my head around the MIDI ports... Thank you @Jinsai for the recommendation! I was upgrading my brother's old MB Pro and some of the parts weren't compatible with his computer so I had some refunds on Amazon... Decided to buy a TD-3 lol. I know many aren't fans of Behringer, but for someone who is totally amateur and on a budget. These pieces of equipment are pretty neat and highly affordable!

    I love Behringer and their synths. I got a few of them. The TD-3 is fun. I also have a Cyclone Analogic TT-303 MK2, which is even funner.

    I have a Behringer Eurorack case that pretty much kicks all kinds of ass. The step sequencer etc, just great, and completely affordable. There's a stigma attached to them, their logo totally does suck, but their gear is really great. The Neutron is awesome and there's nothing like it for the price.

    the stigma attached to behringer is that the CEO of the company is a literal nazi so, uh...i would avoid giving them money in the future, if possible.

    if you leave a negative review on a behringer product on any public site, he will fucking LOSE IT and start going after you.

    Do you use Apple products? Have you seen how they treat people, especially their workers? I hope you do not have a single Apple product then.

    I honestly don't think this bullshit thing makes Uri a "literal nazi," but I agree he sounds like a total asshole. But I dunno, I am at some point in my "musical career" where I've stopped giving a shit about so many of the moral aspects... like as has been said, if you really look into it, owning any Apple products endorses slave wage sweat shop labor... I just wanna make music and have fun doing it and not go bankrupt... so as long as he isn't a LITERAL nazi, I'm shamefully just alright with buying his cheap knock-offs.

    Despite saying I wasn't going to buy any more synths, I also hopped on the TD-3 train. This thing is nasty, especially once I started running it through my Boss Super Overdrive I had laying around for a decade ago when I thought I was going to learn guitar.

    Speaking of repurposed gear, ive been using the line in on my old Tascam DR05 to tape my jam sessions.

    After I compleat the Moog trifecta with a Subharmonicon, I want to pick up a RD-6.

    I don't talk a lot of shit about Behringer, but I generally avoid them given how they're the kind of sad sacks who sue people over forum posts. Having said that - I snatched up a Model D when they hit a pretty low sale price a couple of years ago. And as happy as I am with my TB-03 (also snagged at an absurd sale price), I find absolutely no fault in the $150 TD-3. Heck, they're on sale for $129 at Sweetwater (who donates heavily to Republicans, so I stopped buying there) - considering how inflated the prices of original 303s are, I think it's fantastic that they make the sound and the form factor available for peanuts.

    And as much as I dislike Behringer, I'm very curious to see what they'll charge for their VCS3 clone. I bet it'll be much less than the $10k+ asking price they often fetch.

    For the record since we're asking, the only Apple products I've bought were the iPhone 4s and the iPhone 5s. Yes, corporations are evil. Doesn't mean you can't be thoughtful in the choices you make.

    i didn't say i was perfect, i said the CEO was a bad person (maybe "literal nazi" was a slight exaggeration but the guy's still a fucking asshole). ethical consumption under capitalism is impossible but you have to pick and choose your battles. i was addressing something that was brought up. you don't have to be a dick to me about it.

    I was being a dick? I don't see why you are so offended by what I wrote. Just pointing out Apple is an evil company, even more so than Behringer, yet used a lot by musicians.

    I'm thinking the VCS3 is gonna be $700. I've been waiting for the RD-9.
