Re: Wanted to Get Started Soon So ...
I have an older Motif 7, Triton Studio, and Korg M3. I just bought a new Imac 27"; always had PC's before. I am 59 years old and was a computer wiz of sorts years ago, but have had years of medical issues, cancer, wrist pain, mental. I recently got some extra money. I used to play B3's and hard rock. Had all the cool keyboards. Original Mini-Moog, Fender Rhodes, etc. I miss the ones with the right sounds.
I am writing some rock/Christian (sort-of) music. I want to be able to play as much live as I can, but my idea is to create songs to give others ideas, maybe sell them; get new ideas!!
My wrists are really bad; another reason to get ideas in a DAW. I did a lot with MIDI when it was first released. I have designed digital devices, but things are slow for me now. I am using TC Helicon VoiceLive too...I not a singer,but without the ideas the songs don't make sense either. I need to get the ideas together sooner or I will forget them.
Bottom line, I need to understand the more technical stuff so that I am not intimidated. I started to use my keyboards and map some NI KORE AU's in a bass line and the MIDI went nuts. I am using VB3 in a song, using my MOTIF as a controller, and the Triton changes the program.
I used Cubase with my PC, but I want to move on and get serious before I come up with any other issues... Does this make sense?
