Not too much love for Acid then? Nothing quite like placing every single hit where you want it.. and it rewires loverly.

Hey dopamine your tunes are fantastic but you use only the Yamaha RS7000 for the production ?
Can you explain your method?
Thanks mate.

The RS7000 is a 16 track midi sequencer with built in sample based synthesizer, effects and a sampler. I use a lot of samples so I tend to create a lot of noises etc using either vocals or one of my hardware synths then sample it into the RS7000 to be sequenced or mangled. The computer is used as a sample editor/effects unit but all my sequencing is taken care of on the RS7000. Once i have my finished track I record it into sound forge - and that's about it really.

It's a limited setup as i'm restricted to 16 tracks, one multi effect, one reverb and one delay but I thrive in the limitations. It pushes me to be creative and generally come up with ideas and sounds that aren't what everyone else is doing.

I've recently added a Virus C to compliment the Yammy. I do have other hardware but the RS7000 + Virus C are what I run together on the final tracks, everything else gets sampled into the RS7000.

One of the main reasons I dont switch to a software rig is because I play live with two RS7000's and a guitarist. It's an extremely stable and reliable rig and we're not about to change any time soon. What you hear on my records is exactly what you hear at our gigs, except with a little extra 'umpfh' ;)

Matt
Fair play to ya mate. I sequence everything on the MPC2000XL for pretty similar reasons i.e. gigging. I used Cubase many years ago and still have a go every now and then on software sequencers, but it's just not as much fun as programming beats on my MPC.

For me, the main motivation behind writing music is the process not the end result.

What I have heard of dopamines forthcoming work I hope he sticks to what he definately knows best. 8)

Some people spread themselves to thinly by using to much instead of getting the FULL benefits of using less. Mr Dopamines sound is very distinct, very well produced and is moving dancefloors!

With work recently signed by Rennie Pilgrem and supported by pretty much all the big names, with more to come from labels such as S.O.H. & Titlefight I think he is doing more than something right me thinks. :lol:

And to have one of your forthcoming tunes hammered by the likes of Evil nine speaks volumes.

One of my favorite producers of 05 and he'll certainly be getting my vote for best newcomer @ the next breakspoll.

Yeah, I just read that you like to use 2 of them along w/your guitarist for live shows..... obviously, do what works for ya.


Scott, one of your favs for '05 - the kid just barely came out (no offense Dopamine). Let him get started before you go putting him on a pedastal he hasn't yet achieved. How many records does he have out.. 1 idn't...

Why mention Evil Nine to me? You know I don't respect the bullshit they've been making the last 2 years.

No offence taken but I do find it funny when you dont respect Nectarios for making similar statements ie. why should we listen to the constant whinging from yourself when you haven't had a release. Seriously mate, you are constantly on the attack and always trying to knock down what everyone does. If only you could turn that energy into something positive and try and create something while you're at it you would probably be a lot happier.

I'm not "always trying to knockdown what everyone does"

Just because I bitch about Evil Nine from time to time doesn't = me being what you said.


I give plenty of positive encouragement

Cubase SX 3, rock solid so far and with a couple of good plugins (not the standard ones mind) and some tastey speakers you can make your wet dreams reality.
