Hello everyone, I am pretty new to recording in general, and was wondering what kind of a Mac (laptop) I should get.(I have no Idea about Macs) I would be using it for such programs as Sibelius, Q…Continue
"Scratch what I said about the 2.7GHz model. I just noticed that the 13" 2.7GHz model is an i7 dual core while the 15" and 17" models are i7 quad-cores. According to some benchmarks the 2.0GHz quad outperforms the 2.7GHz…"
thanks for your help.
I am not sure what I will want to do in the future with the laptop. I just want a versatile laptop, which is good enough for recording acoustic drums and keyboard sounds in several layers over each…"
"It might help if you also stated in more detail what you hope to accomplish.
For running Sibelius, likely any Macbook should suffice. For running Cubase, it depends on what you plan to do with it. Work primarily with audio tracks?…"

"Hi there, Matthew! :)
Well, it's all programmed sounds. I used Acoustica MixCraft 5.0 for it (basically a real simple recording program, where you also can make music - it's like Cubase, just alot simpler). I do want to upgrade to a more…"
"I like the music you made for that video game.
which programs did you use to record it?
I am new when it comes to recording and composing would like to know how to get started ;)
Keep it up, and have a nice day
It is said that the Interval called a flattend ninth (13 Semi Tones) is one of the most dissonant ones.How about trying to compose a short piece that mainly revolves around the flattend ninth Interval, but as a goal trying to make it sound nice and not out of place.(Listening to the first movement of Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven you will hear him using this interval and it not sounding out of place, just as an example.) So enjoy the Challange and hopefully this Group will come up with more…See More

About Me (MUST be more than 10 words to be approved):
I was born 1988 in England, moved to Germany at age 4 and ever since live in Frankfurt Germany, I finished studying Music in 2011
at the Frankfurter-Musik- Werkstatt (Pop & Jazz school) in Frankfurt my main instruments are Drums and I Keyboard (Piano). I love Video Game music espacially the older stuff like "Secret of Evermore" by Jeremy Soule, or "Beneath a steel sky" by David Lowe.
I earn my money through teaching Drums & Piano, but am looking for a career in composing for Video Games or animation in general and working together with fellow musicians or animation students. If anyone is also fairly new when it comes to composing or animation, feel free to write to me.
I pretty much nearly only do music related things all day.
Well, it's all programmed sounds. I used Acoustica MixCraft 5.0 for it (basically a real simple recording program, where you also can make music - it's like Cubase, just alot simpler). I do want to upgrade to a more sofisticated composition program soon, but such things often costs alot of money...
But for starters I'd recomend MixCraft or Cubase for recording (off course you can use free software such as Audacity aswell, but really, Audacity sucks) and Sibelius - or free alternatives such as MusScore - for notation. Good luck! :)
