Check this groovebox for ios, seems that tablet technology is catching up with desktops or laptops, is this the future of music production?

You tried sending demos to advertising companies? Not digital form or links to websites but on a Physical CD or USB stick or something?
I do a fair bit of running (3-4 times per week) and race on average once a month. I would say pushing through that pain barrier and getting a PB or chasing someone down and crossing the line is my main 'buzzrush' in life these days.
If you could bottle the feeling hard exercise gives you, it would be worth a fortune!
Well he's added a free (price of shipping) vinyl to the package now.Be interested to know how many have signed up but i'd be surprised if it was more than 20.
Well sort of knew it! Dunno If the new single or album will be any good I'm not sure! We'll see.
For me getting the first buzz rush in my life was an ultimate life changing experience, it was like there was no good music to hearing excellent music for the first time in late 1991, I was in my brothers old escort car travelling somewhere and heard this :-
psi division mindf**k 2000 elasticman mix. I'm sure a lot of people had this experience and had an ultimate rush or excitement or electro orgasm or whatever. But do you still get that feeling when hearing good music? John peel used to say this when he first heard rock n roll 'there was nothing then there was something '. I was 13 and never taken drugs. Was it like a first shot of heroin or something?
What was the first tune that gave you that experience and got you into rave music? I
I've listened to about a hundred nu rave tracks on Soundcloud in the last month, but rarely get a buzz-rush now. Do I grow out of it or something? They are never as good as good old tunes? Or no longer a novelty?
Also what drugs like ecstasy do? Do they enhance that feeling or enhance the sound or what? What about ketamine and amphetamines or other club drugs?
How else can I experience this? Winning the lottery?
What you reckon?
I thought Another Dimension was pretty nice. The other track, Humanity, I found a bit dull.
Got excited when I saw this yesterday, but must admit not really feeling either track.
Saving grace really, we're really so spoilt for releases currently that bank balance cant keep up.
FL Studio, have done since the first version. Ridiculously easy to use.
I did have a go with Reason for a while a few years ago but I just didn't get on with it. I can't really see any reason to use another DAW either to be honest. FL can do pretty much everything all the others can, at least everything I want it to do.
For anyone who might not be aware, the latest releases on the recently relaunched Knitebreed Records went up for presale yesterday.
"Paul Bradley - The Sweet as a Pie EP", and "The Timespan - As Predicted EP", and if bought as a bundle, the first 100 buyers get a copy of my exclusive album "Class A Speed".
I am immensely pleased with how this turned out. It is mostly in the mid-90s breakbeat style, pianos and stabs and all that. The CD contains a couple of kickdrum led tracks but mostly are in the oldskool hardcore/jungle style.

@ JMT - Wish I had the time to knock 4 tracks up in that amount of time & decent ones at that!
Takes me about a year to finish stuff! lol
@ EleveneezerGoode -
Track names have been added above - where they exist - most were just labelled as "Compo track / entry".
I still think having a good variety of tracks in the 91-94 style is good. There was a lot of styles back then that were all mixed together : More housey / piano styles with big vocals, mental stab affairs, dark minimal & ragga jungle to mention a few. It's the variety of styles that keeps me listening, especially when certain types are all mixed together. Too much listening of one type could end up sounding a bit boring.
So, any future compos will feature a big batch of various types of sample like this one did so people have a nice choice of what to make.
Already got a load of interesting bits together in one type of style, but need to get a lot more before the next compo comes along.
We've also done compos remixing classic tunes (I might have sent you some links - can't remember) but as a lot more of these artists are coming back, don't want to annoy anyone, so from now on it'll strictly be original tunes - although not to say some classic samples won't be added to the packs
My username is eddie voyager i think ? lol Havnt really been on this forum for a long time , but tbf this is where it all started for me really . Really stoked to be in the top 5 . allways been a great forum for compo`s and feedback on tunes etc , good or bad , and trust me ive had plenty of bad feedback over the years lol . as i said somewhere else ive not really made any tunes for a couple of yrs and thought the compo was a great opportunity to get some inspiration back and spur me on to actually finish something !! Thanks to everyone who voted for my tracks and thanks to gaffer and RG for makin up the compos and releasing the tunes , giving up an comin artists something to aspire to.
Btw l wasn't trying to put ppl on a downer, l really am impressed by the tunes submitted and l was the first to say so. I just think that looking back on the votes, there's 2 distinct mindsets, reflecting 2 distinct periods in dance music: freestyle techno rave, and the more narrow serious junglism stuff, so ... *Shrugs* the quality of the uploaded tunes is still fuckin mint.

Good stuff, is there any money in hardcore rave jingles? How do you approach someone?
Okay but that would mean lots of crackheads are gonna vote Junglism no matter what else is there, and ur basically putting two warring kittens in a bag by having 1991 side by side with 1994
@ JMT nice tunes, especially the piano track
BTW I would also perhaps name the tunes when all the votes are in, it'd be interesting to know what to call some of the songs

The length of the tracks was cut, as I don't think people want to listen to the intro-outro, they are of course needed for mixing.
Big up to all, as the tracks were the best set of tracks I've heard in these compos.
