    yeah unless you got some fetish for hardware, go soft. hardware is gonna be phased out shortly enough anyhow (except for the few exceptions).

    suggestions:
    -Reason - Multitrack multimachine monster - no vst plugins
    -Fruityloops Pro - same as above - uses vst plugins
    -Cubase - same as above - uses vst plugins - VERY HARD TO LEARN (at first, but well worth it after the curve)
    -Wavelab - sound editor all in one
    -t-racks - "instant" mastering
    -sony sound forge 7 - sound editor

    those are just a couple more widely used progs. the descriptions i gave are not near accurate for what they actually do. just do some googling and figure it out.

    I don't know about those reviews above mine
    but it sounds like you don't have the first clue
    about these machines. Good luck figuring out
    reason off the bat. Coming up with good beats
    on one little piece of hardware like that is not
    going to happen.

    Download fruity loops or something and play
    with that for a few months. Go to school for
    audio engineering and figure out how to work
    midi and pro-tools environments. Then try to
    get into stuff like Reason, Sonar, Project 5,
    Sound Forge and all those. Acid is a good starter
    program for getting used to mixing down tracks...

    You've got years ahead of you, bub.

    use a computer for just drums if thats what youre doing. Ive been making beats for a while, I use reason and a midi controller like my friend just said. it works fine. if youre gonna get hardware, just save your money and get any version of an mpc. they can do anything.

    If the SP 303 is good enough for Madlib... it's good enough for you.

    Roland is always a good brand if you want to hold a piece of hardware, but like everyones said.. cubase, fruitloops and reason are probably your best option.

    Bwah.. that thing's just a sequencer, a
    maelstrom and a drum machine on Reason...
    that you can run through various replicas or
    effects. Like everyone else said, when you've
    got a midi controller the fun begins.

    I'm interested in Cakewalk Project 5.

    I lost my cd for reason 2.5. Does anyone know where I can get the no cd crack? I'm not paying for this shit all over again and I can't find it anywhere (warezp2p has been my main source of inquiry, and I find the shit but all of the connections are poor and it just says connecting and never actually connects)

    thanks in advance.

    pretty much. the equipment to do so is so damn cheap, anyone can get started.

    let me brake it down:
    if you go soft. get reason and either ACID PRO, or PRO TOOLS, if your computer savy try LOGIC. project 5 is cool but i wouldn't fork the cash out for it. personally i use CUBASE SX PRO TOOLS ACID and RESON along with my hardware.

    if you do hardware:
    DO NOT BUY THE DR SAMPLE...that thing sucks soooo muck dick.
    listen to corpon, get an AKAI MPC.
    Shadow uses that and nothing else,if he can make all that shit on one perice of equipment...so can you, its the best.
    or you can try the korg electribe sampler(the green one) its pretty cool too.

    hey (no subject)- usually if you really bought reason and didn't pirite it in the first place, after instalation, you shouldn't need the CD every time. unless you told it not to instal the sound banks on to you comp.
    unless you have the soundbanks...you cant do much of anything with reason, and those are about a gig for both and are hard to find a reliable download. if you have the serial number, call propellerheads US branch and they might hook it up real cheap with replacements
