Hi guys, firstly I'd like to say hi to You, it's my first post here
I'm a proud owner of Microbrute for a few months now and I'm in love with it, but to be honest I'm looking forward to expanding my gear. Basically I'm trying to choose right drum machine, which is quite difficult for synth noob like me. I'm inspired by some oldschool sounds with slow/dark/drone bass and simple melodies, for example Hotline Miami OST (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWTbo5muJ_Q
I'd love to have drum machine that would fit such atmosphere. I've tried creating some loops with FL Studio, but it doesn't sound right to me. I'd also love to loop some tracks to jam to them, but I'm not sure what should I have - looper, sequencer, drum machine with sequencer or maybe another synth?
In other words - I want to program drum pattern, then add bass track and finally program some leads or just jam with created backing track. At the moment I own Microbrute, TC Electronics M350 rack processor (delay/reverb/etc.) and Roland Tri-Capture interface. What should I get and then - how to connect it all together? Yeah, I'm really confused, synth world seems to be much more complex than I've previously thought
Sorry if my questions are dumb, but I've read tons of threads so far and still don't understand many things, and what i more - there are nearly no threads/articles on such topics in my native language, which makes everything much more complicated
Of course I'm looking for user-friendly equipment, as complete noob I need something easy to use, without tons of options to choose on tiny screen.
And the last and most important thing - budget!
To be honest I need to find something rather cheap, but not garbage. I'm aiming at used stuff with possibly best value for money.
I'd be grateful for every advise from You guys, but please try to explain everything as simple as possible so I can understand this complicated (but beautiful) world of synths
