    Have you gone further with your experiments?
    Thank you! No, I haven't, yet, but I will... soon! Your cello concerto binaural mix sounds pretty good! I want to learn more about this technology, let's talk! (we can chat about it via PM's if other people are not interested about it in this thread.)

    I helped create the latest @ianshepherd video about the loudness war. He even called my mix "conservative", like @botley would!

    Got Pro Tools on my laptop a while back, and it's really awesome. It's so much fun recording audio and MIDI stuff on it, and the amount of cool plug-ins you can get is staggering! Native Instruments had a Thanksgiving sale, so I managed to get Massive and Guitar Rig 5, which are fantastic. Also, I stumbled across the Izotope Iris 2 sampler, which Angus Andrew used extensively on the latest Liars record, so I had to check it out! There's so many options for unique sounds, I don't think I've even scratched the surface of it yet.

    I've tried quite a few DAWs since I started dabbling in production in 1999, from Fruity Loops to Sony Acid to Cubase to Reason, but in 2011 I'm completely switched over to Ableton Live Suite and it's done wonders to my workflow and get ideas from my head down easier. I started sharing my music online back in 2003 and put out my first album in 2009 and been releasing stuff ever since on streaming services and in digital music stores. I use Izotope Ozone for mastering, NI Komplete Ultimate, Arturia V Collection, Korg Legacy Collection, Illformed Glitch, some Sugar Bytes products, with hardware analog synths.

    Noticed this thanks to the REAPER blog channel, open source virtual modular! :-O

    Haven't tested it myself yet because I am kinda worried to start going into this stuff, but who knows, maybe Mr. Cortini is having fun with one right now? :-)

    Hey, does anybody have experience using a non-Mac computer as a hub for MIDI control into an iPad? I have a USB keyboard that I'd like to use as the controller for an Audiobus-capable app, but ideally while continuing to work on my main Windows machine. Is there a DAW or piece of MIDI bridge software that will talk to Audiobus from a Windows 10-controlled USB hub? Or do I need to go borrow someone's Mac and use a DAW that talks to Core MIDI to rout the controller into Audiobus?

    EDIT: Looks like I might be able to do it via the Bonjour wireless protocol for Windows and rtpMIDI networking, but is there a more reliable hard-connection method that doesn't go through the wireless antenna of the iPad?

    Basically, I am just trying to quickly simulate the sound of playing a "real Mellotron"; I already have all the authentic tape sounds loaded into a janky old iPad Mini with a dodgy antenna that's running Mellotron XL. I ultimately want to mic both the key noise from a sticky Korg MicroKey and the sound coming out of the iPad's internal speaker to approximate some of the halting unsteadiness & tinny warble that playing a real Mellotron in a room actually sounds like. Arcane bit of business, but the tape sounds recorded from playing keys within the app itself are too clean, and I really want that vintage about-to-break feel for this project but without too much fussiness. I'll probably also be overdubbing more clunks/other operational noises and messing with the pitch, thus adding to the shittiness slightly without having to build it all from inside the box. Or buy an actual hardware Mellotron...

    I use iConnect 2x2 for integrating an iPad... pretty sure it works w/ PC.

    Thanks! Will give that a go next time (ended up just recording some jams straight out of the headphone jack into a DI, then just doing some severe EQ to make it suitably shitty).

    I'll put this here... YouTube Recording Revolution channel lead me to this:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/songwritingacademy/videos
    It feels like this dude knows what he's talking about, Re: song writing. For example I did not realize that if you start chorus on beat 1, maybe you should not start on beat 1 verses or anything else.

    Does anyone know where to get good drum samples? I'm not finding anything inspirational really in the default Logic drum packs.

    Thanks in advance

    That really depends... are you looking for free samples? What kind of music are you trying to make? Are you looking to buy some packs, and if so, what's your budget?

    Thanks, I'm looking for free samples. I used to get the ones that came in the CDs from Computer Music Magazine. They were much higher quality than ones I usually find for free online. I'm broke now though.

    The music I make is mostly rnb and hip hop based. I make some UK style breakbeat sometime for fun.

    Probably over a decade ago, I downloaded a surprisingly decent set of acoustic drums from Dooley Drums - which apparently still exists, and has greatly expanded since then. Check out the options there.

    Keith Hillebrandt is a fan of VCV; he's in their Facebook group! I've tried VCV Rack myself and it's pretty cool, considering I don't know jack shit about modular synths. Gotta watch those YouTube tutorials sometime...

    I highly recommend looking at some of the free sample banks from Goldbaby. They don't match up to the packs they sell, but they're all quality, and their banks they charge for are reasonable priced. Also, for hip hop kick drums (or kicks in general) I think everyone should check out the Punchbox from D16 software. It's not free, but you'll get so much mileage out of it, and craft your own kick banks, and you can use the free demo to create a ton of custom samples (with an easy-export button)

    Yeah, Goldbaby are cool as hell. They have free samples in rx2 as well; I love this format.

    Thanks for letting us know about Punchbox, it seems intriguing! I'll consider buying it. Sonic Academy Kick 2 is great as well.

    Thanks @Jinsai and @wizfan . I'm gonna download some stuff from Goldbaby right now. Excited to try something new. Also will look at that Punchbox plug-in, I might be able to afford at least one instrument.

    Remember when I asked about samples from artists like NIN? Well, back in 1998, the band Skinny Puppy had collaborated with the company Time+Space to create the sample library "Skinned" (heh). It was available in CD format, but now you can buy it from Time+Space's website as a 472MB download for $30.
