I'm new to this forum, but in no way new to music production. I'm a classically trained pianist and used to teach Piano Performance and Music Theory at the School of Sacred Arts when it was located in Livonia, MI.

I started sequencing MIDI on a Mac II in the late 80's using one of the first versions of Opcode Vision. Anyone remember this? http://www.cassiel.com/space/Gearhead/Opcode+Vision/vision.gif

My studio then grew into a few tall racks of outboard sound modules, samples and effects units around a Mackie 32-8bus mixer and an ADAT (still MIDI based). Since then, I've literally dumped all of my outboard gear and am now working entirely in a Core 2 Duo Pro Tools box. It is amazing to see how music technology has changed over the past 20 years.

See you around!

Welcome, manoian!

I'm fairly new around here too. Folks are very helpful, so you'll soon feel at home.

I've been writing songs since Adam first saw Eve, and I worked as a pro Pianist-Entertainer up till recently.

I hate that work 'retired', but let's say I prefer 'music-with-the-mouse' these days. I started using Cubase on the Atari back in 1995 (no audio then!), and I must say that working with the lastest VSTi's & software samplers is a dream...

Have fun!

Hi, Manoian,


My first sequencer was a Yamaha QX21 or something like that. Then I got an Atari STe with Notator SL. It worked fine for Midi but had no audio. I then upgraded to Logic 1.0 and have stayed with Logic ever since.
