Too complicated to set up. And way to expensive. Software MIDI is another think. Fruityloops is super duper on building drums, but nothing can produce a full song faster that Sonar. When you have 30 channels, Fruity becomes a pain. > > We should start discussing tracks on the list, > > maybe, if no one minds ... get that community spirit hopping :) > > Definitely.

Reviewing each other is good, but I think it would be better to help each other progress in musical production. Like for example to try to find out how that super base from 'Addicted to base' was built and to emulate it. It would be cool to share expertise instead of guarding our cool tricks like a magician.
