I'm curious to see how many other coachella-goers are into music production/anything recording or electronic music related. Post your gear and software of choice, and genre(s) you typically strive for.
I'll start out...
I do most of my sequencing, chopping, mixing, editing, and processing in Pro Tools LE 7.3 , via the mbox 2 pro factory bundle (by the way, this comes with an amazing ignition pack)
I use reason for some sampling, various synth sounds, and alot of percussion/drum elements I like to pull out of there via rewire into pro tools.
I use the Korg mini that everyone and their brother has as both a Midi controller and analog instrument, which is great for anyone starting out. This sounds like a pretty limited set up, but it's all my budget can afford for the time being, and even then, it's allowed me to learn and produce some pretty cool stuff.
I mostly aim to create ambient pieces, house, acid house, electro, trip hop, microhouse, and a combination of any of the above. I love sampling and feel that getting a good bass sound and a solid kick and snare sound is key to a good electronic track. most of my stuff is incomplete/ still in the process, but i'm near completing a few tracks i should be able to post on myspace soon. i want to hear your music!
now your turn
