I just exited the service and while enlisted, I began gathering DJ gear including my MPC, Macbook, Ableton Live 6, and of course the other goodies like a Rane mixer and a couple of Denon CD decks. I've been producing a few beats here and there as well as a couple of tunes for just getting started. I've been loving the software as well as the MPC. Check my reverbnation site if you want to hear any of my material. There's only a few tunes up now including a VERY rough mix (the beat and melody get a little off from one another about two minutes in). I'll be posting more soon. I just moved so, things are a little caotic.
I've been into music since I was a kid, I am now 30. I've been playing on piano, guitar, and banging around making noise. I also sing but not for anything I've made so far.
