Mostly stuff like In Flames, DevilDriver, Lamb of God, Mudvayne.

But lately I have been lazy so I just put my MP3 player on shuffle and let it play whatever it wants.

If the MP3 player is dead, I listen to a classic rock station around home and when in Pittsburgh I listen to 105.9 the X.

Hey Marclar, I found that myspace link 'carbonentity". is that you? If so, I like your beats. I am more of a funky breaks person, but I like your hard house style.

I hear ya on that one. I tried doing so myself using reason, I could barely operate the program efficiently let alone get anything of a good production value out of it.

I also play in a hard rock/ metal band (or used to anyway) we had written many songs but that as well can be a painstaking process.

Agreed, creating music is hard regardless of the aspect, although I've found sampling a little easier to do. The biggest problem I ever had for music was lyrics, since I played in a band. So, I just stay as an instrumentalist, and let the music try to convey what I'm feeling.

using samples is an ez way to learn. but in the end of a production, you cant truely say its yours.

this is what the oprogram looks like: and this isnt even a complicated song

I use FL to sequence my drums. Nice program, and capable of a lot more than what I use it for....

I did all my recording thru a Yamaha AW1600 home workstation. No computer interface. I could never figure out those pesky programs. I guess you have to if your goal is sampling.

For recording with my band, the AW1600 was an excellent product.

Ya I did not have a manual. It took me half a day to get the sound to come out of my speakers with Reason. that did not include time ensuring that it wasn't my computers sound setting directly :)
