For the record I have nothing against using computers to make music. I just think they benefit from a little hardware mixed in for intuitive purposes. It might be trendy somehow to migrate away from the computer, but I find myself having a lot more fun with hands on gear than by pointing and clickin...

Yo, I heard that it isn't fashionable to make mnml on a laptop anymore. I heard the new trend is to squirrel out with hardware on 300 pressing white white labels distributed by hardwax. I am going to by an emax because I want people to think I am totally real like someone from Detroit. Would an MPC...

I think I'm leaning towards an MPC because if, god forbid, anything ever happened to my laptop, I could still make music purely on the MPC and my hardsynths, since my MOTU has some meager built in effects which could probably hold me over.

Lots of good input so far, thanks everyone. Perhaps I should clarify my goals a bit more: Logic is my main DAW, and although I love its capabilities I find myself getting into loop-itis very easily, mostly because arrangement in Logic requires (for the most part) dragging/dropping MIDI blocks around...

mpc 1000 vs Maschine

I'd like to add some sort of hardware drum interface to my setup, something that will let me do hands on drum programming and possibly a bit of live work. The NI Maschine looks nice, especially because I like to run most of my percussion samples through some reverb and/or delay in Logic, and from wh...

$700-850 seems to be the going rate for good condition 101's these days. Think that's too high of an entry fee into the world of analog? I know they aren't getting any cheaper. Are they costly to repair, if they ever happen to need it?
