  1. because i half-jokingly said something like 'or you could just pirate it ' you know, because i assumed most of you were at least a little cool and wouldn't go so far as to permanently BAN someone because they casually mentioned the act of pirating. not where to get it or how to get it, just the fact that it exists. oh right because when someone gets caught it's usually because they mentioned pirating something on the fucking ocremix.org forums right? another thing that refuses to change here: most of the forum members are gigantic faggots.
  2. really? this place has changed. im not sure if it makes me happy or pissed, but a friend of mine* was banned at least a year ago from ocr forums for mentioning that he pirated software. welp :\ *spoiler: it was actually me
  3. I'm looking to buy an external recording interface for my Macbook Pro. I'd like to take advantage of my Firewire 800 port, which is significantly faster than the common Firewire 400 and USB 2.0 connections. I'm going to guess that I won't have much luck, considering I ran a search on zzsounds for "Firewire 800" and it only gave me one result (some high-end interface) Any help would be appreciated My budget is something like $200. Thanks!
  4. yeah, thats the problem... im guessing even if i did sign up there's an extremely small chance any jobs will pop up near where i live. i'm in a pretty small town :\ is there a way to get this kind of information other than paying someone for it? and other than searching through hundreds of job posting sites of course...
  5. http://www.gamertestingground.com/ I'd like to know if anyone has heard of this. I responded to an ad on craigslist about "we need beta testers for a FPS game", so I got all excited and sent an e-mail. Unfortunately, I got an auto-reply with a link that eventually sent me to the site above. Anyone know how it works? Theres no way I'd sign up for it and give them money but I'm just curious. Thanks in advance
  6. thanks so much for the replys analoq and tweek, they helped a bunch. i think the best thing for me to do is just buy the stuff i need/want and just figure out how it all works together, then take it from there. that's more fun anyway
  7. mostly loops, im not sure how most sets are done but in my head im thinking, basically build a set beforehand with loops kind of as a base, then while live, create more loops on the fly and maybe incorporate some live instruments too. also using controllers to mess around a lot with effects/mods, etc. it will be just me for now, although it would be nice to collaborate with some other people in the future. i do know a few musicians who play live instruments and might be willing to contribute or just jam out and stuff...
  8. I've been thinking of branching out of remixing and doing crap in my bedroom to performing live for others and stuff. I'd at least like to give it a shot. My experience with remixing/producing is pretty much confined to software synths. I have a single midi controller ( oxygen 8 ) and other than that, I make all my stuff with a keyboard and mouse. My questions: 1) What kind of equipment should I look into getting for performing live? I have a great laptop I can use but I'm not too familiar with the more technical side of sound engineering(?) and how stuff all gets wired together and whatnot. L
  9. im surprised no one's mentioned the squidfont orchestral soundfont... it's free, and it's pretty damn good. http://soundfonts.darkesword.com/ edit: okay okay, it's not nearly as good as those programs you can buy for hundreds of dollars that almost perfectly emulate an orchestra... but for free, it might be the best soundfont you'll find.
  10. i think Nicholestien might be my favorite user on this site. evar. not that it matters. i lurk tons and post rarely
  11. hello hello first of all, i'd like to say i love the site and all the invaluable information that i've been finding on the forums. now, i've been producing music (very casually) for uh... maybe 6 years now. just you know, messing around with fruity loops, reason, ableton live, etc. i've never got really hardcore into producing stuff, but its kind of been a dream of mine in the back of my mind recently i bought a new Macbook Pro. It's my first laptop, and i'm very very pleased with it. i bought it mainly for graphic design/ web design stuff, and also because i just moved in to a new apartment
