Okay..so i've been producing for about 5 years now, but its always been on software(Reason/Logic), but i'm aspiring to be an original producer and not just someone who makes beats!
I sample quite a lot and i've seen the MPC2000
is well reccommended, but apart from that i dont really know anything else. I know about 'Sound Modules
' and i hear roland are pretty good for that but i dont really know what the hell its for.
The only peice of equipment i own is an M-Audio KeyRig
linked up to Reason
on my PC!
I'm a real hip-hop head and i love beats by Dilla, Exile, Madlib, Flying Lotus, Samiyam
etc, so you should get an idea of the type of beats i'm trying to make!
But if someone can just take some time out to just break it all down for me and give me some reccommendations also bearing in mind costs, it would be appreciated greatly
