I will very likely be around then. However, if it's just a NG general meetup, I'm not sure I want to attend... it'll probably be mostly 14 year olds :|

that's not true actually. I've been to quite a few and all of them are of drinking age or between 18-21.

it's a fun time. if not, we could just chill whenever you want and talk about music shit ^___^

At the moment for the price nothing is really better. The S2 when it lowers price more would compete though. The Behringer CMD controllers that have yet to come out will however top that set up with a comparable price tag.

well thanks once again, yeah i noticed that about the placement of the pads and wondered why it was different. and i will have to check out the Behringer CMD you speak of

I didn't give you any input, because I have 0 experience with DJ Gear in general... the closest I have is my APC40, which I only got recently and haven't learned all the ins and outs of.

i understand, it's cool.

I'm confused D:

nope, it's not a different name for plugin
it's a font (derp), but instead for words it's for sound.

that's the best i can think of sorry
also, you'll only need one plugin that uses soundfonts to use any
soundfonts are also used when you play MIDI files in WMP or VLC player or some other media player

Chrome's spell-checker just randomly underlined "a lot" in an email I was writing and I saw "alot" written as a suggestion when I right-clicked on what I wrote.

I'm considering changing browser because of that.

A soundfont is just a bunch of sound files packaged up nicely and set up to play different files depending on which notes you hit. A classic example of a soundfont is the MIDI standard, but others exist. They've been around since the 90s and aren't used so much anymore as processor speed and disk space has gone up. Further info.

Exactly the same happens for me. It makes me confused whether alot or a lot is the correct spelling.

I wouldn't blame the browser as much as the people behind the spellcheck language file.

Well if that's the case it time for me to learn how to play the piano. Maybe that will get me into music making spirit I desperately desire .

I recommend learning any instrument. Just learn anything that you don't already know how to play. That may get you inspired- I often simply fool around on the instruments I doknow how to play, without paying any attention to actual stuff like notes and whatever...and then voila--> New song idea.

This is only a suggestion that has worked in the past... because I still have this music block thing, too ;__;

Listen to different music, try to take note of the patterns then trying to make an original piece using the pattern you've noticed.

And don't fap afterwards. It makes it very awkward for some reason.

Nonsense. Piano is quite obviously superior to all other instruments. Learn that.

Jokes aside, I agree that any instrument will do but for practicality's sake, I'd still recommend learning piano if you haven't already. Apart from the fact that it's an amazing and versatile instrument, learning how to play the piano will make it easier if you ever buy a MIDI keyboard.

I know tonnes of people who use a MIDI keyboard just fine and they don't know how to play piano, but of course knowing piano will make the process a lot smoother and allow you to play more complicated stuff than standard chords in the left hand and a melody in the right.

That's just my advice though, quite obviously biased since piano's my favourite instrument. There's a tonne of instruments to choose from (most generally not as expensive as a piano) and learning how to play any one of them may be really rewarding, relaxing and make you think of some great ideas without mouse-clicking even once.

when school happens, about 5 a day.

i'm starting to try a 3 hour sleep cycle though.

sleep for 3 hours, stay awake for 6-8 hours. sleep another 3 hours, stay up for another 1 hour. so forth and so one.

I've always noticed that I feel amazing after a 3 hour nap.

When there's no school? A full 8 - 10 hours. However, when there IS school, it varies very much according to the workload (but it's a lot smaller due to a lot of a work and waking up at 6:00 AM), but I've had to stay up all night to finish my work on numerous occasions, and back when I had an average of 5 hours of Maths homework a day, I used to call 1:00 AM an early night.
