    I have been using a computer to make music since 1999. I have used quite a few different software music making software programs, and been through many computer upgrades. Been playing guitar for about 50 years. I am uploading a song I created using a backtrack ( i am playing guitar ) about a year ago.
    I guess the attachment didn't work......oh well.

    I do have some songs on soundclick.....

    Any other people making music with their computer?

    At the moment? No... I've been to busy doing other stuff. My studio stuff has taken a back seat.

    I make music sometimes. I've made many more than these four bellow but they're my favorites.
  4. Here's my first studio in the early eighties.


    I finally moved up to Tracktion 4 from T3.

    Here's a mix of some old school techno I composed.

    Here's a rocking piece. I don't know the guy who made the video. He just liked the song.

    BladeOfGrass, Soundclick is telling me I'm missing a plug. I gave up on all Adobe software.

    I've checked out your music man, it sounds awesome. Great guitar solos everywhere. :)
    I've also been making music for years. I have also used many software and right now I'm back to fruityloops. I like all their upgrades.
    I also have a page on soundclick, but I moved onto soundcloud.

    I've also started making vids and putting it on my youtube page. But all my stuff is on soundcloud. I miss, I wish they still had the old format. I had my first tracks I've ever made there. lol, it sounded horrible compare to how less
    horrible I sound now. Lol

  7. Used to have Native Instruments something or other, Ableton Live 7 or some such, and Spectrasonics Omnisphere. But it never amounted to much. I never learned how to properly use Ableton, the NI stuff, or Omnisphere, despite how much time I spent tinkering with them. :)

    The Commodore 64 came with instructions for making a random music generator . I appreciate
    synth music that has a pure and simple relation to its machine itself . When she heard the music
    though , Mother took my Commadore away and refused to explain anything .

    Finely hooked up all three monitors (screens) to the DAW system yesterday... and the second set of speakers to my far-field amp, soundcard installed too.

    Doesn't mean I've recorded anything though.
  11. What I learned from having ableton/omnisphere/native is you have to have a solid foundation in music to make good techno. and that I don't have one! :)

    You can just use your imagination and come up with something new I think. There's lots of music that sounds the same. That's my philosophy.

    I recorded a few tracks in Logic that I'm reasonably pleased with, but am having to downgrade to Cubase LE as my Mac packed up.

    I'm not especially knowledgeable about music theory or technique, I've just listened to a lot of different stuff over the years. I tend to view it in pictorial terms, and in terms of layers of sound and frequencies, and vibes.

    Brian Eno's set of printed cards "Oblique Strategies", subtitled "Over One Hundred Useful Dilemmas", can be useful for non-musicians in overcoming creative blocks.
