seems like a real chill dude. def a minimalist studio for sure. He has definitely embraced the world of digital lol.
Great, cool …best sound ever, lets take all the soul out of sampling/music, what a man … sponsorship by any chance?
your right lets not create anything original and just do whats been done for the last 20 years, i create soul i dont sample it. but atrack does sample and lets not forget he was the dmz champ and that barbara streisand track was sick.
word up what makes me laugh is that all these dudes front on the new technologies but hip hop was built of new technologies. planet rock for example.
I think a lot of cats are having mid-lifes crisis’
Whats the point of having a appogee duet if you dont run any audio into it ? He said it has the best sound this may be true but if nothing is going into it only sound coming out why should i buy that ?
Because it is that which is processing the sound that is within the machine as well.
As for why should u buy that? its all down to preference, personally I wouldnt use it myself, or a computer.. but different strokes for different folks
@ Benni I understand apogee sounds good coming out to the speakers but If your doing everything in the box or on the computer per ‘se and not for instance taking a trs cable and plugging in a guitar or mpc how will it make your music sound better ? logic is gonna sound like logic and pro tools , reason , fruity loops or battery gonna sound the same pending on what kind of plugins and internal processing you use .unless you run the signal out to an avalon or a mackie or something to fatten up the sound and run it back in .
the apogee is the internal processor for logic just like you could use a big ben to make it sync better you change the settings in logic and pt. I think you are applying analog theory to this. True if you record a bass or something in you might not get that big of a difference out but hes not recording anything in its all midi trigering different vsts and since its all digital ( 1 and 0) the the processor will allow you to get a different value of 1 and 0 than your card on your computer therfore getting a bettter sound from the vsts by processing faster or being able to handle more information its dialed in for higer quality audio conversion.
I have a logic minimalist set up like atrack however I do use the NI Maschine & the MPC 2000xl and I’m cool with my M-audio Fast track ultra!
Too fast…needs to be longer…
