Well, I just downloaded FL 6 DEMO the other day. Pretty nice program, I must say. But there are some problems. Like you said earlier, it is bad for orchestra.Is there any other good program out there that really focuses on orchestra music (having good trumpets, french horns, trombones, etc.)? Or are there just other great programs to look into as well?
As well, the program is still pretty difficult to understand, but I'm going to try and fiddle with it to learn it by myself, like you suggested. But I've read previous posts, and was wondering, are there any vital parts of FL that I need to know in order to make good songs? (like snap)
My other concern was plug-ins, VST's and samples. What exactly do VST's and plug-ins do? How can I reach them (or use them) in the program? Also, what are the best places to find extra samples, VST's, etc.? I can't go to their website, as everything there is subscribers only. Are there ones that I REALLY need to get, or should I just search google when I think I need something?
Sorry if this is way too many questions. :-P I have just been interested in music creating for a long time, and I really wish to make great songs. One last question before I go though. Which package is the better buy? Producer, Express, FL Version, or XXL? I just want your imput to see if the extra stuff in each package really matters.
Thanks again. This should, and hopefully will be my last post of n00biness.
