Hello everyone, well i just spent an hour writing a new thread only to loose it ! no I'm really bummed! To cut a long story short, i spent alot of money on my home studio and i don't have the brains to get it working ! I'm at least six months into having everything set up and have nothing to show for it ! my main hang up is getting my head around midi stuff and how to get it to bounce to disc with the other audio tracks ? do you need to make midi into an audio track to bounce to disc ? I find it hard to learn this stuff when i often don't even understand what the manual is telling me to do? need a dp for dummies ! oh i'm so lost don't know where to start or who to ask ? anyone know of any good tutorials for beginners or dvd's that speak in a newbies language ? If i could just get the midi stuff figured out i'd have enough to start making my music and i'm sure i'd work the rest out along the way ! Well thanks for listening. Any west australians here using dp ?
