    well...

    well, if you are not going the computer route, you might want to try the mpc. for the price range you have you could get a mpc 1000 or 2000. and if you want to sample, you can get you a decent turntable and that would put you at right about $1500.

    you can always go computer, im assuming you have one since you are online. you could get fruity loops studio $150 or reason $300 (you can get demos at their site) then a program like cool edit which is like 3 or 4 hundred, a sound card and some studio monitors and a turntable to sample for about the same price. im use software, but im not bias towards hardware, im planning on gettin some myself, but you can get the most for your money with the computer route, especially if you are just learning, you might later decide you dont want to do this and be out only like 3 or 4 hundred instead of 1500!

    good luck on you musical endevors!

    What you need, in my opinion:

    • An Emu MP-7 Command Station. You should be able to get one on Ebay for about $500 or less.
    • A MIDI Keyboard like the Oxygen8. Available for $150 or less.
    • A digital recorder like the Boss BR-864 or Fostex MR-8. $300 to $500
    • Some Monitor speakers like M-Audio BX-5 or Alesis Mk2. About $300 for a pair.
    • If you have $ left, get a Studio Projects C1 microphone. About $200.


    There you go ... a pretty complete home studio for around $1500 ... no computer required

    As you get more money, invest in expansion cards for the MP-7.

    Equipment for Hip-Hop/R&B?

    Say cuz I'ma tell ya like this playa, you said you have $1500 to work with right. I Think you should keep working to get some more paper until you get about $4 g's at least $3 g's. If you buy a midi keyboard now for a couple of hundred or so dollars then when you see the Motif ES and the Triton Studio or the Fantom-S your gonna be like damn I should have just saved my paper so I could cop one of these great workstations. I know your at a young age and want to get equipment now but you really need to be patient and save your loot up for what you want. So you don't buy some cheap a** keyboard and then turn around in a couple of months after you master that board and buy a different board. Now what you have in your studio is alot of unneccessary equipment and that is a waste of your money. But at the Guitar Center you can trade in your old gear to get new gear. So I guess you would be able to cop some equipment now to get started into the production game and upgrade to something better later as you grow a become a better all around producer. See what I'm sayin!! In my studio I have the Motif ES with a standalone CD recorder,Reason2.5,[2]Turntables,Mpc 2000 XL,Triton Classic, with a very fast PC and pretty soon in Nov. I will have the MPC 1000. I know earlier I was talkin bout unneccessary equipment like having 2 great workstations like I do. Well to make a long story short I have the paper to do that. Just like the big name producers in da game they have about 4 or 5 different keyboards because they have the paper to do that ya feel me. So if you need help choosing Hip-Hop/R&B equipment you should take a visit to your local Guitar Center and try out different workstation and other equipment that you can use for Hip-Hop/R&B production and save to get what you want playa. In other words don't let anyone else make that decision on your equipment you try it out for yourself and make your own final decision. Ya it's OK to get different opinions on equipment but just make sure your the last one to make the decision on what fits your Hip-Hop/R&B production needs fo' reel. Holla back at me with a reply if you would like some opinions on top of the line Hip-Hop equipment. GoNe!@#$ GoGetta$%^&

    yeh youngi I would listen to that piece of advice, hold back a little save more paper and by the time keep researching different types of equipment and sh*t. Plus while time is passing when new stuff come out the older stuff possibly something that you want will be cheaper and you'll be able to stetch your $$ even further

    Talking

    PLZ READ THIS! MAKE QUICK EASY MONEY NOW!!!!!!!!
    Posted By: Ali <Dontknow95@hotmail.com>
    Date: Sunday, 27, July, 2003, at 1:52 p.m.

    !!!PLEASE READ THIS! ITS LIFE CHANGING!

    I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back,
    I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an
    article similar to this that said you could MAKE THOUSANDS of POUNDS within
    weeks with only an initial investment of
    £30! So I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but like most of us,
    I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that if you send £5.00 to each
    of the 6 names and address stated in the article. You then place your own
    name and address in the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at
    least 200 newsgroups.
    (There are thousands) No catch that was it. So after thinking it over, and
    talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured: "what
    have I got to lose except 6 stamps and £30.00, right?" Then I invested the
    measly £30.00. Well GUESS WHAT!?...
    Within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured
    it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I
    made about £2500. SHOCKING RIGHT? By the end of the second week I had made a total of over
    £10,000! In the third week I had over
    £1,000,000 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made
    a total of just over £1,500.000 and it's still coming
    rapidly. I KNOW THIS ALL SOUNDS UNBELIEVABLE BUT PLEASE I CAN ONLY PERSUADE YOU SO MUCH OVER A KEYBOARD AND A SCREEN BUT PLEASE BELIEVE ME THIS REALLY WORKS AND REMEMBER THE ONLY LIMITS IN LIFE ARE THE LIMITS YOU PLACE ON YOURSELF! BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND FOLLOW ME IN THIS UNBELIEVABALE JOURNEY PERSONALLY I AM ONLY 19 AND I HAVE MADE OVER 2 MILLION POUNDS IN OVER A PERIOD OF 2 MONTHS! THIS ALL SEEMS LIKE A DREAM BUT BELIEVE ME MY LIFE HAS JUST CHANGED DRAMATICALLY IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS IVE ACHIEVED SOMETHING! IF YOU DO AS THIS LETTER SAYS YOU CAN SHARE MY DREAM AS WELL! It's certainly worth £30.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more than
    that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly,
    WHY it works... Also, make sure you print a copy of this
    article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I
    promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start
    making more money than you thought possible by doing something so easy!

    Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (Print it out or download
    it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!

    It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only £30.00 (Plus postage)
    IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and
    it is 99% no risk - it really works!
    If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
    extraordinary dividends.
    PLEASE NOTE:
    Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and 1,000,000 or more can be yours in
    20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and
    integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully
    adhering to the instructions.
    You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business your
    product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of
    developing Mailing Lists.

    STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece
    of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 UK £5.00 bills and
    place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen
    through the envelope. Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them.
    You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating
    the above phrase, your name and address, and a £5.00 bill. What you are doing
    is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
    LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it!
    Like most of us I was a little sceptical and a little worried about the legal
    aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the
    Post Office and they confirmed that it is indeed legal. Mail
    the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:
    DO EXACTLY AS IT SAYS BELOW DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING!! WATCH THE MONEY ROLL IN!!!!!!!
    #1) Jane Knight
    14 Harrowdene road,
    Wembley,
    SA5 9JH

    #2) Robert Smith,
    25 Greenford Road,
    Harrow,
    RT5 8UI

    #3) Olga Chenko
    23 Fernbank Avenue,
    Sudbury,
    Wembley,
    Sa3 8ui

    4.) James Romero
    98 Abercorn Crescent,
    Harrow,
    Ha8 8io,

    5.) John Scott
    55 Welbeck Road,
    Harrow,
    HA3 8JM

    6.) James Pike
    719A Christchurch Road
    Boscombe
    Bournemouth
    BH7 6AQ

    STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other
    names up 1 place (#2 becomes #1, #3 becomes #2, etc...) and add YOUR name and
    address as number 6 on the list.
    STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to
    original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
    least 200 newsgroups. (There are hundreds of thousands!) All you need
    is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make! You won't
    get very much unless you post like crazy.
    This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302
    & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.
    PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the honesty
    and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
    adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of integrity, the
    program will continue and the money that so many others have received will
    come your way.

    NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you, either on a
    computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES that
    you are truly providing a service.

    so, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six
    members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with
    one dollar each. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when
    your name reaches the #1 position you will
    be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for only
    £30.00 (£5.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, add
    your own name to the list and you're in business!

    the letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list.
    Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If

    Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for various

    Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by

    Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
    everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a particular
    group, click the post message button. You're done with your first one!
    Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is
    jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of it, it
    will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE MORE
    NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE! BUT YOU
    HAVE TO POST a MINIMUM OF 200** thatís it! You will begin receiving money
    from around the world within days! If you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as the
    postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT. **

    Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me £5.00 make the MINIMUM 200
    postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the
    original 5, that is another £125 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM
    posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an
    additional £625.00! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM
    200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will make an
    additional £3125! OK, now here is the fun part, each of those 625 persons
    post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name at #2 and they each only receive 5
    replies that just made me £15,625!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver
    this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per
    200 newsgroups react I will receive £78,125, with an original investment
    of only £30.00! AMAZING! HAVING SAID THAT I ONLY EXPECTED A LITTLE BUT I GOT A MILLION POUNDS IN MY FIRST 2 MONTHS WICH WAS WAY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS! When your name is no longer on the list, you just
    take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send out another £30.00 to
    names on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And start posting
    again. The thing to remember is: do you realize that thousands of people all
    over the world are joining the internet and reading these articles everyday?,
    JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So, can you afford £30.00 and see if it really works??
    I think so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no one
    sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when
    there are tons of new honest users and new honest people who are joining the
    internet and newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try? Estimates
    are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining
    the actual internet.
