started on v1.5 and had a good deal of experience with reason/fruity loops/buzz before live.

if you're a musician and can read/write music this stuff is a breeze. basic synthesis concepts + live can take you really far.

neither are pre-requisites though as there are a ton of tutorials available on youtube or premium sites nowadays.

It's easy to be tempted to buy the latest outboard remake or softsynth but you're just wasting your money and time.

at least you can resell gear. vsts and plugins are the real wast of money, imo.

disagree. i've gotten more usage out of u-he's diva then just about any synth i've ever owned. granted, i've sold some fucking awesome synths i wish i had back.

as always, it comes down to how well you know your gear/plugins.

push is awesome btw. if you want other awesome controllers check out the livid stuff. top quality.

dixon remix is better

Laptops don't look as impressive if you trying to impress a prog/tech house bird.

pretty much

or you could just buy a laptop for the same price and then have a laptop with software that can do the exact same thing.

laptop + controller + software makes a trillion times more sense than shelling out for 1 or 2 of these.

just use a computer jeezus

this is good

Got the MK2 a few months back. Solid piece of gear. The studio version is probably overkill for most.

Kasabian's latest effort is excellent

thanks for the tip, this is great.

Heard good things about the Mini and Micro Brute.

Depends how much you want to spend though.

Best synth I've ever owned was the Alesis A6. Can't believe I sold it...

Gone Girl was great.

Absolutely loved Caribou's latest effort.

I'm about to give this a whirl -

great set from Kollektiv Turmstrasse

The Golden Girls are huge whores.

the chainsmokers used to "DJ" here in NYC. they're fairly popular amongst mainstream horror people these days.

they played "open format" which is the worst of hip-hop, pop and EDM blended together to form an unholy trinity of ear feces.

Digital Marketing & IT for non-profits

Always been a fan of this

digging this

downloaded this so didn't see any of the horror people, but this set is excellent.

haven't enjoyed a dj set of his this much since his e-mix.
