I'm waiting until I have a budget to work with ;]
Sakupen owes me $500... >.>
I've talked about getting some new drum samples to work with, since mine all suck so bad... But lately I've been wondering if I shouldn't invest in some drum mics and PA equipment instead. I really want to include more live instrument samples in my music. As well as drums, this will include basses, guitars, percussion, maybe piano, and _MAYBE_ vocals.
I'll still be making techno - but it's going to be a lot more progressive, branching out and encompassing multiple styles and genres. I've just felt like I've been running out of ideas with the software alone. I want to shy away from making fast catchy techno and go for something more creative and self-indulgent. Something unique that utilizes the sounds of a lot of different instruments with experimental recording / FX treatments, as well as the usual digital synths and samplers. The drawback of all this, however, is that it's going to complicate the work that I do, and slow down the writing process a lot. Oh well :]
