so that I stop polluting the music-created-by-SB-people thread with my desires to have more money with which to spend on gear, HERE IS A NEW THREAD
this is an electribe! I want it. it’s billed as a “music production station” and it seems to fit the bill pretty well! it’s supposedly a synth-based sequencer with some drum samples included, as opposed to the similar (by which I mean exactly the same) looking electribe SAMPLER, which is a sample-based sequencer with some synths included. I’ve been in a dilemma with my own setup trying to figure out whether I should lean hardware or lean software, which isn’t helped by the fact that my gear is split pretty closely down the middle (arturia microbrute + midi fighter 3d/twister + game boys)
so an electribe seems pretty well suited toward what I’d like to do, which is make moody house music with my microbrute providing lead lines. and there’s the added bonus of being able to hook up my gameboys to it as well to switch back to the other style I work on (space-y future bass-ish stuff) without any problems.
part of me thinks that I’m idolizing the idea of dedicated music production hardware too much, but as someone who had to hack things together software-wise to get things to work, having something that I can just turn on and start making music in appeals to me a LOT
