I see ya-all makin all kinds of loops and I would love to make drum loops and add in a little flavor here and there. Trouble is I am terrified of anything to do with midi. I looked at it in Cubase and the parameters are overwelming to me. Where do I start? And if I do can I support this new habit with less than yet another job?

May 24, 2002 07:05 am Don't make MIDI drums loops, look into FruityLoops ( www.fruityloops.com/ ) Or Sonic Foundry's Acid ( service.bfast.com/bfast/c...mp;bfmtype=gear ) to make drum loops out of actual wav samples of real drums, that is what I do, I actually went to a buddies out and we sat down and recorded samples of his DrumWorks drumkit and Cymbals and I hacked them up into individual drums and I use them in FruityLoops, so it sounds like I am really playing with my buddy John...which is cool, the only thing missing is the heavy drinking and dirty jokes that usually come along with him too :-)

May 24, 2002 10:07 am Wow! dB you did it again! The light bulb came on! We won't talk about wattage. I was reading about fruityloops and wondering what made it so different that it could play back midi files. Daaaa. This I can do! Brian (John II) is coming over this weekend! How perfect!

hehehe, we aren't talking a halogen flood light here are we? ;-)
Glad I could help, using wav files is what really sets FruityLoops apart from the crowd in my book!
May 24, 2002 10:15 am sound forge acid 3.0 is pretty sick too. i personally prefer it over fruity loops, i feel it's a little more flexible and stuff. just a thought

May 24, 2002 10:17 am ya, collapse, another member here, is an avid Acid fan, I have used Vegas a lot and they seem pretty similar, it is a viable option as well for what you are trying to accomplish. FruityLoops is just my personal preference.
