      AWESOME to hear this! We think it’s really good too, back to basics in order to get HQ results.
      Good sample selection and combination is all that’s needed for that style of dnb.

      We are pretty sure that tutorial was done on a Macbook yes 🙂

      Sweet thanks for the reply lol GarageBand is wicked to make these style of soulful beats on me iPhone se a lot fun! On pc I use fl studio 12 but have been interested seeing what Logic Pro is like as I watched many drum n bass tutorials and the Mac ? seems very popular and hear reliable stable systems! So I’m hoping to upgrade! ??

        Logic X is a reallllly good deal at $200 USD, a lot of the tools in it are extremely good. Also a lot of CamelAudio’s plug-ins are now native plugins that come with Logic (Alchemy = Alchemy, CamelPhat = PhatFX, CamelSpace = StepFX). A lot of sound content that you can start manipulating too.

        That all said, I work on a 2011 MacBook Pro (with a SSD in it), and I want to upgrade eventually. Past few years I mostly work in Bitwig, so I might switch to using a PC, although I would like to still have access to Logic.

        BTW I liked the sketches I heard on your soundcloud, keep working on music, finish stuff up and move on to new projects.

        ANNND… I should have my analysis notes for the video posted today.

        I like Bitwig, currently using Bitwig 2.3, I found it fairly easy to pick up, but there are things I’m used to in Logic that I can’t seem to do in Bitwig. But I do get ideas down quicker, and find making device chains fun, as well as all of the different modulation options. I got it free with an Arturia MIDI controller, had it for over a year before I even opened it up, and started working in it more & more. I think it’s similar to Ableton Live in a lot of ways, but I have limited experience with Ableton.

        As for Logic, and really any DAW, they are tools, and my opinion on them is to figure out how to make them do what you want them to do. Once you can do that, they can be easy to use.

        I understand mate it’s all about figuring it out and what works well with your flow getting those ideas down! I forgot to mention i just recently downloaded a studio bundle pack with rokit monitors focusrite 2 generation audio interface headphones ? and recording mic! And it come with couple of vsts protools and Alberton live all for £439 so still the option to see what they are like! I noticed halogenix during the soulful breaks tutorial as well he made blej on Logic Pro seems like his using both or has changed to albeton live ???

        Like the sample packs! It’s a shame you can’t download the tutorials just to reference from!

      Sounds like an Electric of some kind through some kind of pedal – will try and find out for you.
      We know Halogenix is a musician, so most likely something he recorded.

      Cheers Harry much appreciated bud! That give confidence in my work positive feedback to move forward ?? me mAte was talking about how macs are long lasting reliable and stable! I’ve also been looking at gaming laptops as I work away a lot! Apparently really good reviews on Asus rog for music production so I’m sort of swaying back and forth struggling which one to pick the Asus rog or lastest Macbook ?? any thoughts? The specs I’m looking for are i7 7700 16GB of ram 256 SSD and possibly 1TB HDD for storing me sounds and samples etc I’ve seen a few Asus rog about £1466 on a couple of sites ?

      Bitwig is super duper. The ease of assigning multiple types of modulation to any plugin parameter, all within a short reach, is worth the price of admission alone, especially if you like to work fast. For sound design it opens a whole new world.

      These days I am often designing in BW, and then arranging in Studio One, which I also recommend.

      I’ve seen sale prices on full Bitwig as low as $99, so if you’re a bit skint then you might wait for a good discount to get into it.

      Also, if you’re mixing on headphones, Sonarworks Reference 4 is an absolute must, IMO. I just installed it, and now my ears can finally ‘see’ clearly. I should have gotten it a long, long time ago, and it would have saved me a lot of headache and second guessing.

      Also, Mixbus, which is a very capable DAW that is getting better all of the time, is currently on sale for $19 USD (yes I am a yank). I have the 32C version, which sounds friggin incredible.

      If you’re looking for a DAW upgrade over the more entry-level stuff, for not much cheddar, MB is a solid option.
