I want to get started making some kind of elctronic, funk, prog ambient rubbish. ALL I have at present is an electric bass and amp and a lap top.
So... I really want a decent DAW, thats very easy to use, for a noobie, I have used Ableton before, not sure I got the best out of it, is it good to begin on something like this? Is there something better?
I would also like a very good keyboard,
preferable something with sounds, ie, not just a midi keyboard, but have no idea where to start, my budget could be about £1000, but I want to get this right, I know Nords are good, what about Roland combo, its got drawbars!, Or what about a workstation like new Korg chroma? or a Dave Smith P08? Jut really not sure how to precede, Of course l would love a vintage synth or even moden analog synth for funky bass synth, but also would like a poly for 70's strings sounds and etheral pads etc, so P08, but is this too much for a beginner, am I jumping in too deep?
So what do I get? Any advice would be most helpful and I hope that from the replies there will be a consesus as to waht would be a good starter package? I would also like to get some external effect s like boss space echo and perhaps a moogfooger etc,
My total budget would be no more that £1500, possible £1800 tops so know there;ll be compromises
so I need a decent DAW, keyboard with sounds that acts as master keyboard, good bass noises and sounds effects, can it be done!!??
Cheers in advance
