(Mod note - please move if offtopic) Greetings: I just wanted to drop a quick line to say I am grateful for this site as I have been checking it out. I bought a mac last year after years of PC use and I love it to say the least! I started getting back into music after 10 years of pursuing other stuff like work etc. I found an Archer's Organ Book from Chicago in my parents house 10 years ago and used to enter the notes into my computer via Cakewalk (prob first edition) and would play the songs back via midi to a Roland Juno 2. I still have the Organ book which is some 100+ years old but wish I had the Juno 2 still. I am interested in learning how to work with Logic Studio 9 which I have on my mac. Here is a list of gear that I have: Apple iMac 2.8ghz Xtreme Core 2 duo Intel 24" Screen Ram is maxed at 4gb Logic Studio 9 Native Instruments Komplete 5 Adobe Creative Suite CS4 Final Cut Pro 2 Reason 4.0.1 PC - 2ghz Core 2 duo / 4Gb Ram WIndows 7 Ultimate 64bit edition Soundblaster Audigy Z Platinum ASIOV2 (Fruity loops 9, Reason 4.0, bunch of VST instruments) M-Audio Keystation 49+ Roland PC-300 Behringer 4 channel mini mixer Akai MPD16 - drum pad controller Emagic mt4 - USB midi bridge Buffalo 8x Blueray External Burner Stack of 500gb External Storage drives Analog Sequential Circuits Prophet 6 Analog Synthesizer (This was recently given to me by a co-worker! It's in mint condition but needs repair. Only the tune pad lights up. The battery needs obvious replacement. Needs investigation further.Has midi ports on it through.) Wishlist: MOTU | UltraLite-mk3 - Hybrid FireWire/USB 2.0 Audio Interface So that's my intro and hope to get involved more and learn to effectively use Logic Studio to create something. I want to be able to do some recording for my neighbor and his band eventually. I am just starting with basic keyboard but practice chords and scales everyday. I am not able to read music and play but have taken music theory in college. Thanks for reading! Mike NElson "Muxster" So. Cal.
