    Ultrasone - the PROline are awesome as studio headphones.
    for the studio - they're very neurtral but very very detailed. it's amazing.
    it seems v.few folks have experience with this austrian phones, but esp, if your cercumstances requires a closed phone the pro 750s are well worth checking out.

    good luck

  • Cian created a new topic ' Music Theory' in the forum.
    10 hours 43 minutes ago

    I've recently graduated from music college, studying guitar. I've always been a bit of a theory nerd, even before college. In general, i see a common desire amongst amateur producers everywhere towards bumpin up their theory game. Coming from a music college, with only bare beginners tutorials in DAWs (protools for recording, nothing on ableton) I am quite the opposite.
    So, few questions, answer whichever ones you're arsed about:

    How is everyone's theory knowledge? Anyone feel they need help? Is anyone else really into theory and love it to bits?
    What is your opinion on music theory? IE-> will it truly benefit your production, or is it much of a muchness?
    Are there any producers doing good music theory tutorials?
    If you have learned theory, how did you go about it? --> do you have an instrument, did you get tutorials, etc.

    Should demand be there, i might put together a few little theory hints aimed at producers. I'm begining to teach Ableton now in schools, and we're currently trying to adjust the secondary school (high school or w/e) curriculum to allow for music production. Should this go through, it'd be very exciting as producers will cross the boundary into being recognised as musicians (despite perhaps not being proficient in any specific instrument). However, with this comes a new challenge: teaching producers music theory of the same difficulty level as musicians, to allow for the standardised music test.
    Anyways, thats pretty much why im quizzin. Whats in it for you? If i begin teaching teenagers music theory through production, i'll have a load of material to post up for anyone who wants theory lessons.
    Cheers for giving me the time of day!

    I tried the iconnect4 to link 2 pcs and an iPad, midi and audio between them which worked well. Haven't tried the maxforlive solution but his other max products are awesome so I think this one will be too

    Man that software is AWESOME!! So cool! I'm definitely spending the 8$ on it, even if it turns out to be really buggy. I wanna see where they can bring this with a bit more time/cash.
    Have you used the software before? How is it on CPU? This perfectly solves the question i presented- one guy creates an instruments, while sending the audio to computer 2. That user edits and mixes it. So efficient! How does it weigh up against the hardware options? They look a bit pricey, cus i'd probably want to be sending both midi and audio, thus costin me 700 beans :/
    Thank you so much!

    if you have to buy a new sound card, make sure you go to the forums of your old card support area and make it clear you will not be buying your new card from them.
    Probably does little to help except make you feel a little better.
    Had that issue with an m-audio 1814 which is a cracking card just no up to date drivers for windows 7 and later osx

Why Producing In-The-Box May Be Holding You Back

Being able to make a fully-fledged song on nothing more than a consumer laptop and a decent pair of headphones is a truly amazing representation of how technology has progressed over the last two decades.

It’s cheaper, faster, and easier. The immense joy of musical creation is no longer a luxury reserved for those with money. Instead, it’s readily available for any person willing to dedicate the time and patience.

But this advancement and opportunity comes with a few caveats, one of which is that the music creation process in the eyes of a bedroom producer has been flipped upside down, chopped-up, and compressed into one holistic task.

Is this a bad thing? No. Not at first look, at least. Every producer has a different workflow, and in my opinion, anyone who stays in the game long enough climbs out of the ruts and moves past difficulties in that area. 

Despite this, there is a problem that many developing bedroom producers encounter. The problem of frustration: not being able to finish tracks, taking too long to finish them, or trying to grasp at the enjoyment that you once felt when creating music. This sense of frustration generally has more than one cause, and this article probably won’t fix it, but it may help some of you.
