post #121 of 151

BTW I was BS'ing with a friend of mine about the whole "Macs suck for audio production". He's an electronic music producer and he sent me the following:

 

my mac seems fine with my professional audio equipment

Actually, my favorite electronic artist uses a combination of Sony Acid and OpenMPT for pretty much all of their stuff. EDM only makes up maybe a little less than half of their library, though. The rest is stuff like breakcore and IDM. Link for the curious

And my new Sports Car cost £21,500 ($35,700). So what's your point, exactly?

 

The more expensive versions of FLStudio just load it down with more and more plugins. FLStudio on its own is actually quite basic and a little on the low quality side. The way it handles MIDI, for example, is shockingly bad (there isn't even a list editor!) and it pales in comparison to Core MIDI in Mac OS X or the fully modular environment that is MU:LAB. It is also loaded with junk (so many pointless graphics libraries) and is in desperate need of a rewrite - it hogs far too many CPU resources for an application of its type, with competitors such as Cubase being able to handle more live processing before glitching out.

 

I mean wow, FLStudio isn't even a fully 64-bit environment yet. At best the 64-bit release is a BETA. Other applications have been 64-bit for years.

 

I've been using FLStudio for well over a decade (since Version 4!) but Logic Pro X, which is what I use now, easily beats the trousers off of it. The Ultrabeat drum machine alone is worth it in Logic Pro X over FLStudio's offerings (I bet it still uses that horrible Fruity Pad or w/e its called).

 

You also slander the Macintosh, saying it is rather bad for audio work. Do you have any experience with a Macintosh? Considering you think a $400 Wintel Desktop == MacBook Pro Retina, didn't even know that Steam was for the Mac (shock: its also for Linux!) and are, what, 15? I'm gonna take a wild stab in the dark and say you have little clue what you are talking about.

 

By all means, enjoy making your music using whatever tools you like! But you do not come into a forum and slam somebody else for simply using a Macintosh when its quite clear that you know very little on the subject.

On a completely different topic, the image SomeGuyDude posted is, in fact, my little home studio. :)

 

From top to bottom on that rack I have:

Casio CZ-1
Korg MS2000
Waldorf Blofeld Keyboard and Mackie ONXY 1220i Firewire mixer
Casio VZ-1

DSI Mopho X4

Casio HZ-600

 

Not pictured is my Korg ESX-1 SD.

 

I'll probables be buying Korg's reissue of the Arp Odyssey if the price is reasonable. Because mmmmm, mono synth!

Wait, is that really yours? Mind if I come over sometime? :P

Ben's an absolute synth nerd. It's worrisome, really. Might have to stage an intervention. :(

Random thought for random thread. I cannot stand earpads like these:

Never will I buy ANY headphone with these or an on ear design. Too uncomfortable. My ears have gotten used to over ear and IEM designs. Can't take it anymore ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHH (turns green and rips shirt, while magically retaining pants)

You guys even go offtopic on a thread that doesn't even have a topic!

Well, the point of being an "offtopic" forum is to have "offtopic" posts. But ironically, posts that are "offtopic" are actually "ontopic", thus not actually 'offtopic", as the thread was meant to be. The only way to combat this paradox is to be so "offtopic" that even "offtopic" seems "ontopic". That is what we are currently doing.

Random thought deuce:
Schit is such an awesome name for an audio company its awesome. If I ever make a (audio related) start up, I will name it Pu-C. It'll sell itself. "Come see what this Pu-C is capable of" or "You've never expedienced Pu-C like this".

Yeah those are terrible. I don't mind on-ear like Momentums or Image Ones (gen 1), but if they have that cover like those or the Image One gen. 2's, heck no. I much prefer over-ear though.

On another note, Serj Tankian's ORCA in lossless...beautiful.

A classmate of mine has the X10 and they just look super clunky and unwieldy for a portable headphone. Only tried them for a little bit, and that was over a year ago so I can't say that much about its sound.
