New to Drambo and iOS production - couple questions on starting
I read a post on another site that basically said something to the effect of “if you don’t understand Modular grooveboxes or synth modulation you wouldn’t get it - drambo wouldn’t be a fit for you” - I’m one of those who didn’t know modulation outside of analog terms and recording, and I felt like the message was talking to me
but I also saw the live sessions with drambo and it looked like a mini Bitwig app as an older Pro tools user, so when I saw it was also a DAW like app and audio unit I just took a chance because of the creativity it seems to inspire. It was a good gamble, and since I had a few auv3 compatible and perfect for use in drambo I took the plunge and it’s been awesome
it was a little overwhelming at first, but now that I’m comfortable with the app, I need to simply understand synth production now, or rather get comfortable with this new version or format of recording. In fact I prefer to work in drambo for solid idea sculpting, playing with ideas, and I even see it as a complete production tool (I am quite sure you just can’t make vocals, but that’s just a GarageBand import away for most I would imagine) now.
question time: where/how did you learn how to really get a grip or even mastery of the app and iOS production of this type? Is there a solid reference or bible that often is shared in the community? (Besides the manual I mean of course )
do you use the Arturia minilab 3? Do you prefer the Akai or Nektar to the Arturia?(25 key controller) and with the Arturia, what do you use faders for? I’m familiar with most of the other features but was curious if there were any fader controls of use and how you control them yourselves ?
I have a fairly complete bank of apps/auv3 I purchased, including Zeeon. What are you favorite or top 3 used Audio Units do you use for production?
how many producers use drambo? It’s been out a couple of years so I assume it’s well known in the iOS community . I just bought a MacBook m1 so I decided to finally purchase this but it looks like years went into this piece of software so is there a large base?hundreds? Few thousands ?
it seems Drambo is a unique hybrid of an app, being many things, and the only thing that seems to be similar is Gadget/Nanostudio, but they would be more like a pro tools older model while Bitwig and Ableton live would be more like newer Drambo, is this a reasonable way to compare them or should someone explain it more coherently:) if you would be so kind to help teach an old dog new tricks
how do you use Drambo within aDAW? I suppose if you used all internal Drambo components and no Audio Units, but The auv3 integration is what made me go for it in the end
who are some top dogs to listen to, both for tutorials and for song and musicianship? I would love to hear some epic drambo production hits.
thanks for your time
