i also make crap. i'm dabbling with breaks but i have no ideas beyond the drum programming and a bit of sampling. i think i need to try the weed-smoking technique.
i'm not necessarily bent on making stuff that goes with what i spin. i play piano and guitar so i want to buy a decent mic and a pre-amp and make random electronic stuff with recorded elements. but it'll be awhile until i can afford it. especially seeing as i want to upgrade my turntable setup to three decks first.
