  1. I have both a keyboard as well as a real piano, so I'd probably record the real one, if I wanted to do any recording. I also have another question... I have my keyboard, and it's hooked into my computer through a In/Out USB Midi 1x1 cord. Is there any way I could have the things I play on the keyboard go into the piano roll, or something, of FL Studio? I'm really not sure what to do about that.
  2. Lucky. I wish people would chuck some good mics out every now and again... hehe. Do you have any idea, or guesses as to what it would cost for me to get even just half of those mics? I don't plan on doing any recording right away, but it wouldn't hurt to know. And judging from that, you'd need quite a few mics to get good enough quality out of a piano? My piano is located in just the perfect spot right now, it has just the right amount of an "echo" when you play it, would that affect which mics I use?
  3. Heh, I've heard a bit about the E-Mu stuff. Just one last question for now...how much did your mic cost? And yeah, I'd most likely have to route it through an old laundry chute and through a couple vents to get it down to my piano. It's a shame, I've got such a nice sounding piano. And again, thanks for the help.
  4. I might have.... "forgotten", let's say... to hit it. Ha, silly me. And yes, I have a piano, but it's downstairs in it's own sort of room, and my computer is way upstairs. I really don't know a lot about recording anyways. I'm guessing I'd need a pretty good quality mic? And even if I did, I really don't know how I'd get any recordings onto my computer. Anyways, that aside, would you have any suggestions as to what exactly is "much more high-end". I'm sorry if I'm sounding like a real beginner (which I guess I am...to composing for the computer anyways), but I really appreciate all the help.
  5. Alright... I don't sing, and I'm not sure if I want to do any recording. I'm doing all my of my music... production, sequencing, MAKING, in just a small room, far from my piano, so I don't have much use for a mic atm... A small question about FLStudio. While I was trying out the demo (Still haven't gotten the full thing yet, it should be here pretty soon though), I set it so that my keyboard was hooked up with a MIDI In/Out cable, and enabled it in FLStudio. For some reason though, if I hit a note of my keyboard, it will "press" a note and play the audio in FL, but it doesn't want to be marked down in the piano roll. Or anything else for that matter. Any info would help, thank you!
  6. Hmm. I'm pretty sure it was just the program I'm using. I bought FL Studio and everything seems to be working alright as far as soundfonts go. As for software, the only program I really used up until just recently had been Anvil Studio. Unregistered at that! And you say that Soundblasters aren't good for music production? What would you reccomend then? Preferably something in the $100-200 range, but not too much higher, I don't exactly make all that much money.
  7. Hey, I've done some lurking for a while now... I've really enjoyed all the music on here. I myself play the piano, saxophone (tenor and alto) as well as the clarinet. I've been working with pretty much just MIDI stuff, but I'm trying to get better and break away from that whole, robotic sounding stuff... Any suggestions for someone who knows quite a bit of theory, and can play live, but isn't sure what to do when it comes to computers? Please? Heh.
  8. I've worked with the basic MIDI soundbank that came with my computer for about a year now, but I've gotten tired of having such low sound. Trying to fix this, I went and bought myself a Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS. While it's quite an improvement over what I had before, and the fact that I can use soundfonts now, I still have a ways to go before I can get any QUALITY music done... Anyways, I had just a few questions to ask... 1. Is there any free software out there that will let me load multiple soundfonts, or for that matter, is it even possible to load more than 1 soundfont at a time? 2. Is MIDI the way to go about doing my music? 3. How much memory is there on the Audigy 2 ZS anyways? I can't load any soundfonts larger than a couple MB... And most of the soundfonts I download are in the 11-30MB range... 4. Is there anyway I could go about getting more room for my current soundcard, or do you suggest a completely different soundcard? 5. My MIDI program is pretty limited. It won't take any audio (wav) longer than a minute. Do you suggest any programs for MIDI/just general composing? Thanks for taking the time to help me. I've been wanting to get something that sounds better than just plain MIDI sounds for a while now, but I wasn't sure what to do.
