Click on More at the top right, then an option to switch back to Classic Soundcloud will come up.

Don't use Vengeance loops. MANY of them are actually copyrighted.

Looks like all drum samples loops are fine to use, and melodic loops are fine for non-commercial (e.g. Newgrounds) use.

Why would you think that a commercial sample pack would distribute loops you can't even use?

I use FL because it's cheaper and gets the job done. If I really wanted to, I could grab Sonar or Cubase right at this minute and use it, but I get along fine in FL so what's the point?. I can run Omnisphere, Gladiator2 and Kontakt inside of it with no issues at all and if I need to use any extra features on my keyboard it only takes me a couple of seconds to setup the appropriate multilink(s).

Maybe I should turn around and say 'Only stupid people doubt FL'?

Not all of them are. Some of them fall under duplo.

The following are a list of bannable packs, as per researched extensively by one of the audio moderators.

Reason(s): Constructionkits/DUPLO or atleast 90% built around either.

Future house (all volumes) 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Trance sensation vol.1,2 and 3
Dance explosion
Vengeance Dirty Electro Vol.1
Vengeance Dirty Electro Vol.2
Studio vocals (Recorded by Vengeance)
Total dance sounds vol.2

NG Duplo is not the same as legality. We're far more strict than the actual law/licensing agreements.

Agreed. Tons of pros use Vengeance sound packs for their drums. Many professionally produced tracks also contain samples from other tracks. Music Sounds Better With You by Stardust; its main groove is apparently sampled from another track.

Hell, this track, Sunlight by Modestep includes a break which is a Vengeance loop! I cannot remember which, but I heard this track and thought, "Hey, that's pretty cool!". Then when searching through one of my Vengeance packs weeks later, I found this exact riff.

They obviously did not get in trouble as it is still a released track, but I think using 100% Vengeance pre-made material for a riff is pretty lame...

I used fl studio. There is nothing bad about it. Like any software it depends on the person. I can literally do anything ever in that program. I find it's the most versatile thing I have ever used. Try listening to some of my songs :)

Studying and shit

In September i started a new study. Because i wanted to be a teacher and i thought i would enjoy it and stuff.
Now i'm starting to realize it isn't for me.. well, i think so. I'm still doubting.
I'm an intern 1 day a week and i get to give lessons to 11/12 year old kids at an elementary school.
Being at that school and interacting with the kids and stuff is quite fun sometimes. But the actual teaching..

At first i really had to get used to it. Of course. It's weird to suddenly change roles from student to teacher.
But now that i've given enough lessons to see past that.. i still don't enjoy it like i thought i would. Is this what i'd want to do for the rest of my life?
But if i quit this study.. it'll be the 3rd study i quit. What the fuck am i supposed to do? Begin another study without having the slightest clue what i want with my life? Get a job with bad pay and stay stuck in it?

I wish i really enjoyed teaching. It would be so much easier. But i have to give a lesson tomorrow and i already look up to it.

Why does every big decision i make turn out to be a bad one? What will i do with my life?
Next week is intern-week (being an intern every day of the week, giving a lot of lessons). I guess i'll ride that out and decide afterwards if i am still thinking so negatively about my current study.
Blegh.

Studying is not for everyone. Perhaps you would like more hands-on work? Though, I guess your current situation involves actual teaching as well as study...

Anyway, getting used to this new Soundcloud redesign. I think it's really good. Updates pop-up so you can see if somebody liked your track without having to refresh pages or even look at your profile, you can keep a track playing while browsing Soundcloud (kinda like Beatport), and can pause with spacebar, rewind and fast-forward with arrow keys, plus more hotkeys.

I think they did a good job. I do notice some small glitches here and there, but that's always going to happen when something new is launched.

As much as I don't like fl studio (it's has the name loop in it. I hate the use of pre-made loops), I can't actually hate fl studio. A lot of musicians I respect make good and original music with it. It all depends on how you use it. Besides fl studio supports vst plugins. Some people only use only plugins, and spend thousands of dolars on them. All of the sound comes from the plugins, not the DAW. It doesn't matter which DAW you use. As long as you can do the mixing. You can even use a more advanced program to do your mastering (like soundforge) after you made a bounce in fl studio. Of course with the right plugins mastering in fl studio can also become pretty advanced.

right, but here's an interesting fact. The DAW -does- make a difference in how the final product sounds. There have been numerous tests by users who have rendered even simple wav files through various DAWs using the same effects with the same presets and the sound comes out different. Not like HOLY SHIT WTF IS DIS EVEN DEH SAME SOUND?! different but noticeably so.

Every DAW renders things slightly differently. I mean if you turn off the circular panning law (is that what that was called?) in FL, suddenly everything goes to high heaven crap. Some people like to start their project with that off which is a preference but still the point stands.

But for the most part I could not agree more. While each DAW is slightly different the end game is if you know your shit you're going to make that song sound fantastic either way.

Generally a DAW should render neutrally, without artefacts. Any rendering effects like dithering, stereo-enhancements or whatever should be optional. I know some DAWs automatically dither when you render with low bit depth, or they standardly atribute other effects to enhance the audio, but usually you can select as well not to do this. The differences of how a DAW renders still just depends on how you use it. If a DAW doesn't give you full control over how your mix turns out, it's really bad imao.
