Nothing. But my first piece will be Spirit Absolute 2 monitors.

I really want to move away from looking at a computer screen all the time Mad

Want to go more 'organic',...band-like.

Don't really know where to start. Thinking Ableton with Midi Controllers.

bobule Wrote:eventide orville

is that why one of LN tracks is called 'Teventide' Cool ?
yes - teventide was done way back bout 3-4 yrs ago when i got my first eventide - an eclipse

then a coupla years back when i sold all my analog system modular kit i spent the money on upgrading to an orville.. best money i ever spent!
also the sample at the beginning of teventide was my first use of the eventide - that sample was actually some female voices going 'doo' then run thru tide pitch crystals and filters
