Want to build a Home Recording and Editing system

by BeyondHelp / November 22, 2005 9:54 AM PST

Hello all!

I am just an average guy who would like to maybe build a computer system and maybe buy some above average software and hardware so I can create my own music through some of the current technology availabe for the Home Studio type capability.

I know enough only to prove I know so little so I seek advice and input from those who may know from experience what it takes. Do any of the Forum members here write and create their own music? Would some of you care to share your expertise with the less knowledgeable.

I am not talking about ripping mp3s or making remixes of other songs (although I might like to cop a riff or beat hear and there). But If I understand the available technology as I think I do, I believe that there is hardware to tie in a piano type keyboard to the computer and then select an instrument sound like Electric Guitar, Bass, Drum, Saxaphone etc. and then use the keyboard to play the instrument to create the sound or rythm you wish. Am I correct??

Please advise??

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
