    This is actually my gaming PC, I plan to upgrade it to somethin better here soon. Prolly in the 3.2 GHz p4 w/HT range.

    I'm also currently fairly clueless when it comes to the program, I really want to understand how to work it well and be able to use my controller in conjunction...otherwise its just a buncha wasted $ right? Anywayz~

    I buy all my software as well... unlike the majority of the users out there. But i'll write up a tutorial on teh basics of Reason and How to unlock its true power with a midi controller.

    well I've got most of the basics down, bought the tutorial program too, the midi controller would be nice to learn to use. Mostly I just need someone that knows how to produce with Reason to sit down and work together on it. Probably would be my best learning experience.

    the midi controller makes a huge difference in Reason... it really helps with the creative process just because you can jam out all of your synth work rather than doing the point and click method.

    I just got my studio back online again after I had my main computer stolen from my apartment in April, I have to use my second box as my main now and I also had a few programs stolen from me too but I'm back

    Progs:
    Wavelab
    FL Studio 3
    Cubase SX
    Soundforge 6.0
    Acid Pro 4

    Equipment:
    Technics SL1200s (1 mk3, 1 mk2)
    Tascam XS-8 mixer
    Ortofon/Shure carts
    Sennheiser HD280 headphones
    M-Audio radium MIDI controller
    PC 1.7Ghz P4 256mb RAM

    I really need to get a soundcard because right now the latency issues i'm having while trying to jam out on the synths is ridiculous and I wish I hadn't had my old copy of Reason stolen from me. I used to rewire it into Cubase because i love the drum machine. Guess i'll start saving my pennies again. Oh yeah Jeffery/Pryzm keep it up with the tutorials its great for people like me who have just gotten into producing. I only really started doing this within the past year.
    Fuck your local scene! :rofl:

    A 16-bit Soundcard running at 96kHz???? You are kinda pushing that soundcard a bit don't you think. Most 16-bit Soundcards don't support true 96kHz (usually only 44kHz)... thats usually something that the 24-bit cards do... 16-bit cards can only do it justice if you have the right ASIO drivers and a stripped WinXP... but 16-bit cards and ASIO aren't really a match made in heaven... if you are serious about producing 24-bit is the only way to go.


    here are a few sites to help streamline your comp...

    http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/
    a site to help with the use of ASIO with Soundblaster or compatible cards...

    http://www.musicxp.net/
    a site to help streamline the WinXP environment and disable unneeded functions... i live by this site, its just the bomb.
