    M1 Macs seem to use the 8GB more efficiently, and I'm mainly using this until I graduate college in a few years. I wouldn't be caught dead with an 8gb windows laptop. then I'm going to try to upgrade to an Apple Silicon 16 Inch with 32 gigs+ ram when they start supporting that much ram

  • I started with Ableton and tbh it kinda spoils u with all the easy s*** u can do quickly that takes much more effort in other DAWs

    I recommend Ableton only drawback is u have to have 64bit plugins which actually makes it harder to pirate I mean find the right software. But there's such a thing as too much freedom i find being limited in plugins isn't a bad thing

    cracked software doesn’t get updates tho, right?

    well, no. but updates aren't very important. there's rarely any changes between versions anymore, its mostly just bug fixes now. You coulddd just buy everything but that will run u a few hundred lol.

    Logic is certainly the way to go for a Mac user IMO with no former experience @op

    best value for your circumstances too

    You got a Ableton crack too?

    actually, yeah I do

    just for windows tho

  • to me, ableton can make sense but it isnt the one you should start with. although if you master abelton, I don't believe you'll want to use any other one (which I never did). the arrangement view is pretty unparalleled

    I love logic though, so intuitive and works for the apple experience

    If you’re serious I’d say just get Ableton. Once you get good at making beats you’ll be happy you chose that workstation.

    I'm working with an M1 MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM.

    I'm tempted to try Logic Pro, because it seems to be a good value, but I'm open to other suggestions.

    I also want to buy a MIDI controller.
    Are these decent for beginners?

    Also, I know these are not the best audio quality, but will my
    Sony WH-1000 XM4 be good enough headphones when they'e using a wired connection and not bluetooth?

    I just bought the MPK Mini 3, I love the portability and the finger drumming aspect has been what I've wanted. It's my first daw too though. I've seen the arturia mark2 consistently rated better than it, but it's also bigger and the pads seem oddly structured

    holy s***.

  • How early are we talking? If you're 100% starting from scratch, play with GarageBand loops and get familiar with the UI: it translates perfectly to Logic Pro, which is a wonderful DAW and leagues better with the M1. That said - if you end up getting into 3rd party VSTs, be prepared to feel a bit limited by 8GB of RAM. There's plenty of strategies online about freezing/bouncing tracks when needed, but tbh I'm also used to pre-M1 conceptions of RAM sizes so I could be wrong.

    As for the headphones - I'd recommend grabbing a wired ATH-M30x or similar rather than the WH-1000 XM4. To my knowledge, those headphones have the same problem as many ANC headphones in that they process sound to mimic a better soundstage over bluetooth. You're not getting a truly neutral sound, and your mixes will suffer in turn once you play them on other speakers. I've got a trusty pair of the M30x's and I know plenty of folks with more credentials than I who swear by the M50x's.

    FL Studio to start out on n then graduate to logic or ableton or stick to FL depending on your needs but there is no "best daw" only daws to suit your work flow. Look at a frequency chart when looking for headphones so you know what to exoect. If you want to make rap music, having headphones that can handle low-end is a must, but no matter what you're going to have to learn your headphones

    let me help u out breh

    ive been producing for yrs but switched to an M1 8g ram mac just like u and now im trying to set up my stuff again

    found a working FL20 crack but also found out there is no working purity crack for the M1 macs (yet). I'll either wait it out or just buy a copy

    working on an omnisphere rip now ill prob post an update in here.

    FL is definitely the best daw to learn in, but logic is more mac-ish, if that's important to u.

    I can get u links to all the stuff i mentioned, dm me (add me as a friend, click the three dots, click send message)

    i just got an m1 mac too and tryna make it my music workstation plz hmu with all the cracks
