How do you make your own sounds? iv'e been wondering for a while now...?
It depends what software you're using, and what kind of sounds you're going for. I primarily use Reason for this, mostly because I'm personally more comfortable in that environment than any other DAW. This series of videos does a good job of covering the fundamental concepts for synths: Link
If you're wanting to create a patch using your own recordings, I can only tell you how to do that in Reason, as I haven't tried it with any others. This is fairly simple: the NN-XT is built for pretty much this exact task - but the patches it makes only work on that device. I've used it to create some weird things, including a choir patch using only files of myself singing, and an attempt at making a patch made entirely out of cat sounds.
If you want to make your own VSTs to share, well. That's something I haven't done before.
