i was looking on here for a music producing thread but didnt find one so uh ill start this off. i am curenntly using acid pro 5 to make hip hop beats and i just bought a roland sp-404 portable sampling machine and im still learning how to use it. i got one of those 1gb jamedia compact flash cards to store more music on but i cant figure out how to get the patterns i created onto my computer from my sp404 so i can finalize my beats in acid. any help would be greatly appreciated. also post what kinda music you make with your turntables and stuffff. or even if you just play an instrument in a band.
