Your PSU is unnecessary expensive for whatever power you will be drawing. I'd go for something smaller like a 750W Corsair Builder Series (Modular) instead, plus it will save you money. Same with your case really, you can get good looking Full-towers which are half the price and are exactly the same size (I'd personally recommend looking at either a Fractal Design Define XL R2 or a BitFenix Shinobi XL if you want to save some more cash unless the look of the tower is very important to you).

Your general setup is pretty damn decent overall, that 4930k is going to absolutely curb-stomp anything which is thrown at it. With 64GB of Quad Channel RAM aswell, I would be very interested in how much of that you could use up in one of your compositions (usually, I only see people with 64GB+ working with Virtual Machines alot of the time).

Apologies about the double post but from what I said yesterday about moving my equipment downstairs and rigging some of the PA & Rack stuff up, I've pretty much finished the move (with the addition of two extra Microphones, a 24-Channel USB Mixer and EQ, Compression and FX modules in a rack-on-wheels to use)

PIC 1: Here! - The General Setup
PIC 2: Here! - The Mic Setup
PIC 3: Here! - The Mixer & Modules in the Rack
PIC 4: Here! - Desk with my ADAM A5X's Rigged up

Biggest benefit, no neighbours near this side of the house! Plus I now have enough room to make some wooden frames up and mount some big Acoustic Tiles to them (at the end of the month when I get paid to be able to do nice things like that).

Not a single one. Nope. Drum and Bass stopped being cool in the late 90's when it started getting mainstream. Too mainstream. Drum and bass is for people that like jerks such as Bass Hunter and Skrillex.

This post is 100% serious. 4 serious. Seriously.

Winamp

After 15 years, it's being discontinued. When I used Windows, this was by far my favorite media player / library manager. Good thing that existing software doesn't just stop working when it goes out of development.

Oh sorry. I thought his post was about dub and bass. My bad. In that case, screw pendulum, Evol Intent, Spor, Noisia, Current Value, Technical Itch, Ewun, and Diesel Boy.

Don't take it seriously. There was a time in my life when drum and bass was everything. The only reason why it's not anymore is because I'm a slob. If I remember correctly, sequenced has produced a little bit of that gay old liquid dnb as well. We haze because let's face it: music IS gay. And being gay is the new phat.

Yo dawg, you gay as hell *HI FIVE!!

I have no idea who those producers are (with the exception of Pendulum), but I will express hatred at you nonetheless for no apparent reason.

Noiaia are old Gs. They've been around a ggod while, a trio of production beasts from the Netherlands. Ass kicking DNB.

truly ass kicking, but they can do a lot more than just dnb, if you listen to their split the atom album from 2010 you see why. they inspired the whole edm scene as it is today. everyone wants to be noisia :D

Hi all. New here and just thought i'd say hi. I've been producing for about a year now and thought new grounds would be a cool place to show off some work and meet a few good people. I've uploaded a few of my tracks to my channel and would love some feed back, even a rating would be good :) Have a great day everyone.

Was you the guy that posted a girl the other day/earlier? O_o

Also guys, what's opinion on SynthMaker vs SynthEdit?

Synth Edit takes more CPU...

SynthMaker allows VST and Audio Unit exporting? 32bit+64bit? (SynthEdit only allows 32+64bit VST)

SynthEdit is much cheaper... xD

I got told to get my hands on SynthEdit first and then in the future, get SynthMaker

I've just noticed that lately people have been (slightly) misspelling my name by missing a third "i".
I mean, I got my custom T-shirt for a DoTA 2 clan/guild/club-thing I'm in, and the shirt has my username/online nickname as "Yoshii".
