    :coold: it took me awhile to get the hang of it, without any physical MIDI instruments available, but I gotta say, it's pretty damn impressive, more capable than I originally thought it would be (I figured it would be some :greddy: loops) but if you have patience, or an actual MIDI piano, you can do some pretty impressive work with it... very cool.

    anyway here's what I worked on today, it's my attempt to replicate Van Halen's "Jump"... I didn't do too bad a job if I do say so myself :wiggle: d/l it and lemme know what you think :) perfect pitch doesn't hurt in doing this sorta thing though :embd: the synth arrangement was all me, the drum fill before the loop kicks in is me too... the loop was the closest one I could find to what's being played in the actual song.

    :wiggle: I just wish there was a way to apply more than just two effectors to an instrument :sad2: I can't get the synth to sound like the one in the actual song until I can apply a bitcrusher, distortion, AND overdrive to it :mamoru: damn cool though. :bowdown:

    Yep. Pretty sweet. I need to reinstall it or something. Last time I tried to launch it, it wasn't willing to participate.

    actually... does anyone know if apple or other vendors sell more MIDI instruments (or equivalent) for use with the machine? I'm finding that there are not enough orchestral instruments available to my liking :dunno:
