yo future producers,
ive got a question. ive been making beats for a long ass time on fruity loops. i have been making beats now for 2 years with nothing more than what comes with the pirated version of fruity loops. with this in mind its time for me to change my ghetto ways and upgrade my shit.
i plan on purchasing a new midi or synth here in a week and i have a few questions related to which one i should purchase. also keep in mind that i will be getting reason and my budget is $200-$400 maybe $500 for the midi or synth.
1. which (midi vs. synth) has the best sounds and if so which one? if you could explain to me also how you get sounds if they dont come with the hardware that would be cool for example a midi.
2. i want a drum pad (the buttons you push to make drum sounds) this is mandatory unless i can get one for relatively inexpensive on its own.
3. im going to be making hip hop (mobb deep style) beats
any other info you want to provide is welcome
