Gear you are using?

I'm using this for gear:

Korg Trinity
MicroKorg
MC-505 Groovebox
Sp-505 Sampler
2 Boss SE-50 Super Effects Processor
Beringer Effects processor

This is alot of old Gear so I'm kind of outdated for sounds But I'm trying to make due. I'm looking to do Future Pop, Aggrotech and Dark Psybient music.

What gear do you have and what kind of music are you planning to make with it?

Re: Gear you are using?

Same here... keeping it in the box. I do use Maschine, which adds a tactile component to the MIDI programming. Since I'm still very new to this, I think I'll add the NI keyboard some time, soon. Right now, I know a handful of chords and a few basic scales. Maschine conveniently can be set to specific scales and chords, which is really nice, as even I can just play along until something sticks.

I am mostly interested in retro sounding old school techno as well as more experimental/industrial sounds. Nothing organic, just cold steely mechanic precision.

As far as what's in the box is concerned, I went a bit overboard:

Reason, quite tricked out as far as synths and effects go
Logic X
Maschine 2.4
Ozone 7 Advanced
Main synths now: Serum, Massive, Omnisphere 2, Razor, Reaktor, Abl2, ReDominator, Monark
Effects: Ohmicide, FabFilter Timeless 2, Saturn, Volcano 2, Pro-Q 2, Pro MB, Limiter and all the Ozone 7 goodies

I'm all out of excuses for why my stuff doesn't sound right... except... I don't have monitors, yet.

A couple of budget computers and budget instruments. Naming it all would be a waste, considering we have a 'pictures of your studio' thread that pretty much everyone here posts in.

YES! The Microbrute looks like a great Synth. I'm thinking of getting it as well.. I was talking with sweetwater and they suggested the Roland JD-Xi.. I'm still trying to make up my mind.

Re: Gear you are using?

The Roland JD-Xi is rather shit IMO, jack of all trades, master of none. You'd be better off buying Komplete for the money (and I'm a hardware nut).

That being said, I wouldn't worry about your gear being old/outdated. That actually seems like a bad ass little setup IMO.

Agree 100%
1 get a micro brute or other analog synth since like me it is what is missing in you set up
2 old gear is sweet I used to have a Roland XP-50 and I miss it and a Korg trinity is a big step up from that!

Re: Gear you are using?

Yes, I'd say an analog mono would round out that setup nicely. I'd say save for a Dave Smith MoPho Keys. For myself, I found that the MicroBrute was very lacking in variety when it came to sweet spots on the parameters and I ended up not liking the filter. Though honestly for Industrial et al. an Arturia Brute might be more up your alley as DSI tends to be more classic, brassy analog.

I did enjoy that : )

Also great for just hitting record and going at it. Lots of happy accident sampling magic is going to happen there.

Never have been so much dissapointed from a synth actually. When I played the MicroBrute in a local music store, I tried my best to like it - so I ended up using Brute Factor on everything - That thing sounds so boring, the filter's totally lack any character ouch^^Maybe a cheap solution for driving a small modular? Would also spice up the whole thing.
Also agree on the JD-XI - looks good on paper but...Also why is it not possible to route the digital part through the analog filters?

Re: Gear you are using?

The short answer to everything is that a lot of junk has been released trying to take advantage of the analog/vintage craze...YMMV

Unless you really, really need that tactile interaction NI Monark is brilliant. I dont bother using either of my analogs for bass these days.

Then there's that bad habit some companies seem to have like products that get thrown onto the market that are just not ready -
.
'We'll fix that with firmware upgrades lol.'
.
- And professional journals keep silent, dunno why. Beatstep (Pro) issues, Ms20 Mini being noisy as fuck etc...

Re: Gear you are using?

I just got clouds and elements for my modular. I might by frames too, idk.

I also bought a monotribe 2 weeks a go, but I ran out of parts for mods and now it's just sitting there.

I also need a new KP2. I don't really know gear, I just buy what I need for my current vision. Also I've tried to make a compact 9U live case, but I already have shit hanging from the sides. I also want a monotron and new delay pedals c:

Re: Gear you are using?

"Outdated Gear" -- no such thing!

I just bought a Yamaha SPX-90 on craigslist. 12bit 'crap' digital effects from 1985 -- HELL YEAH.

I'm not the least bit interested in the new analog revolution or whatever. A lot of it seems like over-priced toys. I'd rather spend the same money on goofy digital gear from the 80's and 90's. But, that just suits my tastes, really; to each their own.

But, as for the OP's question, the reality is that for my project 99% is done "in the box" with soft synths, Kontakt and Ableton Live.

Hardware:

-Maschine
-Ensoniq ESQ-1 (but what I really want is the SQ-80 !)
-Roland MSV-1 -- I bought this module for ONE PATCH, an absolutely amazing mellotron-style space-choir Pad that I just had to have.
-Alesis MIDIVERB II
-Novation SL mk2 - primary controller
-Ibanez lp 'goth' guitar
-shure sm58 mic

-Michael / dead when i found her

I commonly feel like that, as well.

To add to the thread... I also do almost everything ITB, but some outboard stuff I use:

-Roland D-50 Linear Synthesizer
-Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1UWmkII
-Roland MC-808 Sampling Groovebox
-Epiphone guitars (acoustic and electric) w/ various pedals
-Cello
-Yamaha DD-65 Digital Drum Kit (though I don't use this for the sound, I mostly use it as a MIDI controller)
