    Apart from Keyboards and PC (Software, VSTs), what hardware do you use that give you more creative ideas/freedom. Some of my friends use turntables, some use the MPCs. (most use software programs like Reason, Ableton, Acid etc).

    I used to mess around with DJing, and when I got out, I kept one 1200 for sampling. I collect wierd/obscure records. Other than that most of it is done in the box (Reason, Ableton, Tassman)

    if i had a better setup.. ANYTHING.

    its pretty much all in the box for now, like theres an AAAEEEIIIOOOUUU sample in reason (maelstrom synth) i sped up, sounds like some satanic mumbo jumbo, or alien language, made a nice opener and inspired a weird ass (cool) song.

    later went in logic and added me going 'ahhhhhhh' (like in death metal songs) which turned out to complement the hats pretty well, so i might mess with that some later too.

    record anything you can. even stuff like miking a lighter going off can give interesting results. i would love to record various sounds from a ranch sometime, the machinery and the the mooing and such.

    putting a mic in an odd spot can be nice, like in a can, and record a live instrument a foot away. never know whatll come out.

    mostly for creative inspriation, though, i just use a guitar riff i wrote. or anything that pops into my head.
