Nice way to get mags. For example, I buy frequently Computer Music there and you don’t need to subscribe to the mag.
It is cheap as ~4$ for one issue. I can read the mag on Windows, Android and Amazon Fire Tablet.
If you have trouble in Windows that the pages are black or not displaying, you can “Reset” the app in Windows “Apps and Features”. Select Pocketmags and “Advanced Options” and press “Reset”. This will set the app to default without logging you out or anything else.
I can recommend Computer Music because of the software and good tutorials you get there. The software can be downloaded after you register over at https://www.filesilo.co.uk.
I made a short video about fxpansion Geist2 and how i use it to remix a loop to customize it for my use. This is the first video of more to come. There are already a lot of tutorials out there and i hope my videos will help nevertheless. Enjoy. 😊
Make sure you have “Slice” and “Auto Load” buttons enabled.
Browse to your loop which you want to slice.
Add or delete transient markers as you like.
Press “Done” and the loop will be sliced and mapped to the pads.
For easier modifying enable “Remix”. This will allow you only to create one step per pad. Of course you can disable it and play more then one pad/slice at once.
I create my music with Presonus Studio One Version 4 Professional. This DAW get’s better and better and i love to work with it. I have Studio One since the first version. In 2010 i bought the first version for 16€/18$. Legal and confident directly at Presonus. They had a NAMM special this year. Or was it 2009 ? Really can’t remember. Anyway, i got a bargain and entered the world of this DAW.
Actually i am guitar player. No profession here. No music here. So still a guitarist ? Let’s say i know some stuff by now. In 2014 i got more into electronic music and decided to produce my own electronic songs. I am still an amateur and learning day in day out.
Since then i bought more and more software. Actually plugins or VSTs. My music is made ITB (In The Box) which means there are no really hardware synths involved in my music making. I own a cheap MIDI 48 keyboard, an AKAI MPK mini II and KORG nano Kontrol. No device makes music on it’s own. For my purpose it’s ok now. Of course i like to expand. But that’s another story.
