hey hey.
i've been wondering how you can make electronic beats like bands like The Postal Service or Athlete do. Keyboard just isn't doing it for me. Is there a certain program I should get, or something else?

I know this isn't really guitar related, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks!
^ no, download the producer edition (no demo) of FL 7 or 8
thats great for practise (making your own backing tracks) but it misses a lot and can't really get to the level of publication.

get the latest cubase, it has a lot better sample-adjusting, far better synths, and clean mixing possibilities (aswell as mastering, but thats a tough one)
