What's up everybody- decided to take the plunge and get access to some solid instruction and hopefully help get me going on producing some cool stuff here at SA instead of dumping several thousands of dollars into a brick&mortar school.
I messed around on an old version of Fruity Loops very little a few years ago, but have grown a bit am and excited (and proud) to be working with a legit paid version of Logic Pro 9 on my trusty macbook with an Akai MPC mini.
Was inspired by a festival in San Fran to start making some dub/ambient/psy/D&B type tunes, but am starting with more straightforward 4x4 stuff to get a handle of Logic and its vastness (e.g the Trance tutorial I'm working on now).
Artisits I loved in the past (junior high/high school) that first got me into EDM are: LTJ Bukem, Underworld, Digweed, Orbital, Leftfield, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Massive Attack, Portishead, DJ Shadow, Squarepusher, Crystal Method (Vegas), and the like
Artists that are really inspiring me to right now, and that I would like to "aspire" to are: Birds of Paradise, Shpongle, Ott, Morphatrix(formerly Morphonix), Bird of Prey, Auma, High Contrast, Ital Tek, Opiuo, Tipper, Skream
Really look forward to benefiting from the vast array of resources at SA, and hopefully in time I can give back what I learn along the way as well.
