Just stumbled uppon this site. I thought i was the only one left using music 2000!
Im from the uk,and have used 'music 2000' for 9 years.I use prof music production apps like reason and ablive,but keep coming back to 'music' for ease of use and just makes me more creative when using the limited sample set.
Got 'MUSIC' on ps1 when it came out,then got 'MUSIC2000' also on ps1. Then got 'mtv music generator2' for ps2 and hated it (plays down,not across) thought 'Music 3000' for ps2 was going to be cool but couldnt get on with the interface.(great sounds though).
Also have 'Music2000' for pc which is great but always crashes when i try to sample edit or import samples from a cd,though have got round this prob by editing own samples in audicity/cool edit then importing them.Still freezes up now and then.direct x probs i think. Exporting to wav is also hit and miss.. sometimes there is pops and clicks which when zoomed in,in a wave editor,the 'pops' are actualy bits missing from the wave.
The best for me has to be music2000 ps1. In the early days,i wired up 1 controller to 2 playstations(and tv's) so i could sync record the outputs from both ps1's (say 1 made to play beats run through an effect processor/compressor,and the other to play the synth stuff) all plugged through my dj mixer.-cd burner (i didnt have a computer then!) The other advantage of this system was polyphony. when you load up the ps with say more than 8 or 10 tracks, the sound suffers with samples dropping out or that one string note would jump out no matter what volume you set it.
Have about 25 memory cards full of tracks.
I now have a ps3 which i continue to use music2000,though now i have the optical audio out plugged into my edirol sound card to get my tracks to pc,or into my boss br recorder.
Sorry if i bored you! Looking forward to hearing your stuff,and ill upload some of my (music2000 only) tracks.
