Hello! I'm new to the forum, sorry to revive such an old thread, but I can't access any of the links on the list... it just redirects me to the forum homepage. Help, anyone? Thanks :Smile3:

Hi, welcome :Smile3: Unfortunately, since I made that thread the forum has undergone various updates and upgrades which mean that the format for thread links has changed, and the links there no longer work. However the threads are still there, so you might want to copy the thread title you want to find, and enter it in the search page - make sure you restrict the search to the Music Production forum. Hopefully this will bring up all the threads which relate to that topic.

Those threads are all still there, I think, but you might have to dig through the search results for them. I'm very sorry but I no longer have the free time to spend two hours doing the digging for people :Smile3: I suggest you also join the Psytrance Producers' Forum on Facebook and ask your questions there. It's very active and has a lot of very knowledgeable people there.

If you right-click any link and copy it, you can see which number the thread had, see example
http://www.psymusic.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=63215

Once you find the number (which in this case is 63215), u can search for it using the search funtion in the forum. That will bring you the thread.
