So yeah, I got a really serious question, HOW to work with Fruity Loops? I currently got Fruity Loops 7 Producers Edition. I was playing around with the generators and I liked it. But I am interested in making music. Can someone give me some help with the basics or perhaps some links? I thank all of you in advance, please don't be mad at me.
first you gotta decide what genre, youre into because usually that decides your tempo. You'll find that most hip-hop has you around the 75-95 bpm range and much higher when dealing with either drum/bass, techno/ and electronica. Best way to get started is the same way my dreamweaver professor told me and thats to trace. In other words, find music you like and try to recreate it as much as you possiblly can. There's a ton of drums and sounds in the "packs" file that will give you what you need to get started.
Interesting thing about FL Studio is that theres no right or wrong way to make your sound. No more than a week a ago, I just changed how I mastered tracks and I had been mastering tracks a specific way for about 2 years but once you find a new way to approach it, it puts old ideas in the past. Always Find innovative ways to manipulate the program to do what you want it to do.
Play around with the FX Alot. As you add intruments channels to your project you can assign them to FX channels and FLStudio has tons of plugins/vsts at your disposal.
If you need any other info, youtube has tons of vids of tutorials and aspiring producers who demonstrate different methods of putting together projects. Other wise if have any other questions I'll gladly answer them.
