Could You Build A Better Production Setup?
in the same price range...$899?

If so, what would it include? What would you cut, what would you add?

P.S- I'm starting to see more and more production setups around the Mac Mini

Roland TR-808
the focal point of today's hiphop & pop music

Also the tackiest sounding drum machine known to man

Producers who used the TR-808:
Rick Rubin
KLC
Afrika Bambaataa
Marly Marl
Marvin Gaye
Juan Atkins
Richard Davis
SOS Band
Charanjit Singh


||TR-808's Unique Sound Characteristics:||

Kick Drum: Short and clicky
Snare Drum: Short, bright and snappy sounding
Hi hat (open): Reversed white noise. .
Tom: Unreal sounding. Did sound good tuned down (Kick worthy).
Conga: Workable when swept at lower frequencies.
Maracas: Paper shuffling sound.
Rimshot: unlike any rim I've heard, more like a clock ticking.
Hi Hat (closed): Ch ch ch ch.
Clave: A slow Geiger counter.
Clap: Not real, but believable and good sounding out of the box.
Cowbell: More cowbell - Most unique sound from the TR-808.
Cymbal: Nothing, but high pitched noise.

Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto
a punch/set Mayweather needs to look out for

The uppercut. It doesn't always stop Berto's opponents, but it opens the gate to his combos.

He's most effective with the uppercut when;

Opponents are on the ropes
Back peddling
After a jab or touch jab

I know Mayweather is catching a lot of heat for this choice, but I don't think it'll be a bad fight. Not my top choice for Floyd nor my 3rd, but he isn't as bad as people make him out to be. He's underrated.

What do you think +Edward Ricketts

Music Production:
I've always been driven by 3 things

knowledge, money and visuals.

Tapping into what people buy is intriguing enough most of the time, but experimenting or trying to figure how things work; routing, grooves, equipment etc is where you can get carried away.

I learn best by applying what I've learned or discovered in a track.

Aside from that, visuals spark the creative juices for me. Everywhere I turn there's visual stimulation; graphics, ads, photography, film.

When all factors are mixed together, the possibilities are endless.

Knocked out 13 cues today messing with settings, aiming for another 10-15 tomorrow.

Inspiration, without it, I'd be screwed

What keeps you going?

Mayweather vs Andre Berto
Mayweather sparred for 24 straight minutes and you didn't see a minute of it?

"I didn't see a minute of it bro because at my gym, I was sparring for 56 minutes" Andre Berto

49:03

I don't know if I believe that

Sometimes I prefer pads over keys
especially when laying drums and percussion

This seems so true.  I've laid down quite a few drum tracks using my keyboard, and I can only imagine that any tablet style device would work better.

Akai Mpc 2000XL

Never owned, but always wanted one these.

I don't know if it was due to the many skins and mods I saw in stores or the fact that everything I heard from it banged!

Gonna be the most collectable covers, a lot of people gonna break themselves trying to collect them all and it'll probably open up the world of comics to a whole new bunch of potential fans who may love hip hop but never into the comic book scene.
