HEY MY NAME IS ANDRE IM FROM PHILADELPHIA I AM CURRENTLY ATTENDING LA FILM SCHOOL TO BECOME A MUSIC PRODUCER
MY PASSION IS HIP HOP BUT I WOULD LIKE TO LEARN HOW TO PRODUCE ALL TYPES OF MUSIC GENRES AND BE THE BEST PRODUCER I CAN BE. I JOINED THIS COMMUNITY TO NETWORK AND MEET PEOPLE FROM OTHER PLACES THAT USAULLY COULDNT INTERACT WITHN TO BECOME THE BEST PRODUCER POSSIBLE
I am passionate about music. I'm from Puerto Rico and I want to learn how to fuse different genres from the Caribbean like reggaeton, reggae, salsa and more. It is the main reason why I decided to become a music producer and start at LA Film School. I have plenty of sounds and ideas in my head that I can't wait to share with the world. My Instagram page is @zayas and my Tiktok is @fabiooooooola.
Just joined the community and I would appreciate any advice on the 61 key versa the 88 midi controller
Hi, I just receive a Zoom R8. Bought it used from Reverb, and was hoping to use it to demo out some song ideas. I am running into a couple audio-playback issues. First, there is no audio playback from the console itself (while in fact the LED screen shows audio coming through my guitar in input one). Second, after trying with headphones, I am getting playback, but very muddy, and only on the right side.

Hi - Are you still offering Akai 12 track tape transfer?
