You're going to be using midi notation either way?

FL studio is actually a very effective starting point for beginners. All that GarageBand will teach you to do is make a click'n'drag song.

I disagree, Garageband is a lot more then just a loop library, ive been using it for about 3 years now and I honestly dont see any problems with it, and before you ask, yes, I have tried other DAWs including FL.
Theres a lot more to the program then what meets the eye, it does pretty much the same thing as FL, just in a different way and if you spend some more time on it, you wouldnt hear the diference.

I know the answer.. and you will never find out! HAHAHA!
Well Yes actually I do know the answer.

I wasn't talking to you, i was talking to everyone else.


To the person who made the alt: I like you. You are fooling everyone.
Well I don't like you. Copying my name and such.

I still can't believe you're so grown up and stuff. Not that you were ever the incarnation of immaturity, but y'know what I mean. :P

Dammit, now I feel as though I should start taking my own shit seriously. Oh well, maybe after a couple of more Stumbles/9gag refreshes/random flash games. :D

Ambient is just some fucking pad playing in the background and an occasional delayed sound effect.

Even if you ran off to another planet, it wouldn't help you if you planned on accessing any US-based websites. If the bill passes, it affects them no matter where you try to open them.

this is what you get for spelling birthday doom the other 364 days of the year! >:D

also it's my birthday today too except it's actually tomorrow in NG time but if you were born in the states that means you're more or less exactly a year older than me which means you're EXACTLY a year closer to DEATH than me!*

*happy birthday btw :>

p.s. i am gay

Microphone

I got a cool new microphone (first I've owned) and the sound quality is pretty good, despite it being predominantly a gaming mic. It's a clip on mic, mainly because I am a gamer and wanted it to be convenient to use, and because of this it does tend to pick up a bit of echo from my study, but with any luck I might be able to try out as a voice actor.

So... someone fill me in, what's all the commotion about? I don't watch the news or keep up with the latest happenings in politics and such... I know it has something to do with the internet and I'm assuming "control over it"... but I don't know the details.

We talking like monitored and heavily restricted access like in China?

Whut about me chron? we've met before. can I snuggle under your warm roof? could I share that nice cozy fireplace with you and make you some hot chocolate? I promise I won't be too much of a burden. I can bring my french maids uniform and clean up around your apartment or something?
