I have XXL Producer edition of FL Studio.

I've been trying for the past two or three months to make a decent trance track, or anything for that matter, But haven't been able to get anything going.

My two biggest problems are percussion, and synths.

I guess I could use a few tips on where to get inspiration if that's possible...

Help?

Synths are doable, you can make a decent sounding synth with sytrus, if you know how, try looking up how to make supersaws and stuff with sytrus.

The percussion, you usually have to find new samples, or create your own, or even slice some drum loops if you have to.

I saw you had a tut, checked it out, and it really helped.
Thanks!

Well, I think i got a question of my own.

I am interested in making some music (obviously) and I wanted to try doing it all on the computer. That is, inputing the notes and seeing how they sound, etc. etc. I have used a program called Psycle to make one song way in the past, It was pretty good. But i thought by now they would have new programs that were free that may work better than Psycle.

Maybe this is an easy question to be answered, and yes I have looked at the "read first" thing on the front page thing. I have downloaded something called Buzz and it was closer to something I was looking for.

Now in all of yours opinion, what would match a software like Psycle and Jeskolas buzz? (keeping in mind it needs to be free)

P.S. I'll probably have more 'fruity' questions later. XD

try starting out by making a simple bass line and then build up a good sounding main beat that goes along with the bass. or even find another song that has a synthisised bassline and listen to it. it might give you some ideas

How do i use the EQ correctly? I mean my songs usually sound too 'squashed' and doesn't sound professional. By pro i mean hearing the lead synth clearly as well as other instruments, not dulled down and compressed.

Thanks,

No, you're wrong. I'm considering upgrading from Producer to XXL when I can afford it.

You can find loads of VST plugins on the net that might help out, many are free and many others cost money. You can also download some better percussion samples, since the ones that come with the program are pretty bad IMO. One VST that I like to use is z3ta but that costs money.

Most likely anyone who has XXL and still doesn't have a clue how to handle FL.
I mean, who would buy something with all extras even before they have a general idea if it's the right software for them or not?

brainteaser?

I'm not sure if they're free or not, I don't use VSTs. But you can check it out.
There's about 150 or so there to look at.

Use 16ths and 32nds, and fade them in o.O

If you dont have any new drum samples, and just have the ones that come with FL... Try using the dance snare number 3 for rolls, thats the best one for them o.O

Hey, I have some drum samples and when I just click on one of the boxes to make it play, even if I have only one highlighted it keeps repeating itself and sounding awful. Why is this?

I am a newbie in making music.

Some one can recomend a programs that make music for novices?
I allready read the audio help page, but is too complicated to me.

I want a program very simple to make music. Like Mario Paint composer (you know what I am talking about?). One program that I chose the Instrument and the note and put in right place. Also, the program must be a freeware( no demos or trials, please).

Thanks for atention!

I'm sorry to tell you that there's really no program out there for free that's not a trial where you can compose your own music. There could be one somewhere but I'm not exactly sure where or what it is.

I highly recommend a FL Studio or Reason trial though. Get a feel for them and buy one.
I would suggest that you get FL Studio, it's very easy to use and you can pump out tracks in no time.

Sorry I can't be of more help. :/
