Long time viewer first time poster?
So I been doing the beat ting for a while now, working with mc's from london and manchester. Now things are getting semi-serious so Im looking to change things up, its not broke or anything but I just want to make some adjustments, not fix it.
A fair few years ago, I ran an s900, sp808 and s3000 into an akai MG1212, results were decent, this was just for fun, I also used a novation rack synth and an akai s20 and vinyl, recorded some sessions and demos and nothing much came about, I then moved to new zealand and I moved to being completely ITB and its since then that I started working with MC's. Ive now moved back to the UK. However, I feel that if I get myself a sampler again (mpc 2000 is on its way back to me) I will start to take things more seriously, be more inclined to go digging and really put the effort in to make things work this time around.
Sometimes I feel that when its all ITB, theres not much room for soul, its all punch in punch out, with all these emulation VST's and physical model/sampled instruments it feels like things arent going anywhere.
Im looking to sample into an s3200 apply fx, lfo, levels then bang the floppy/zip into mpc 2000 and chop/sequence. Then possibly go from mpc onto tape. Im wondering if this is going to work for me though seeing as how ive been laptop for 2 years now. has anyone else been in the same situation?
Im taking a bit of risk here as I am kinda broke and semi jobless.
Last chance no breaks!
