alright i want to start to make music and i heard FruityLoops is good so i got the demo and like it alot. I just want to know what are good tutorials for it so i can learn how to do more stuff.
Here's some tips to help you then. I've been using the demo for 40+ songs and it's served me well.
*Piano roll is your best friend. Fuck the step sequencer. But you might find more use for it than I have.
*FPC is the way to go. You can load the various drum samples lying around the program into FPC and have a really good drum kit. I found out that you can also turn down the tuning of all the drums in the kit by moving the root note a few keys down. (that's the orange spot on the keyboard on the channel properties. Right-click it, not left click. left-clicking limits the range of notes that the channel can play.
*Edison. Your best friend. You can record your whole song in there (it's better to use the export function for that) or you can record samples of the vsts that randomly pause in sound.
*Use the sampler. At first, I was reluctant to use it, but over time I became so aquainted with it that I use nothing but that and things like Slayer, Soundfont Player, FL Keys, and the drum machines. (except drumsynth.)
*If Asio4All freezes on you, use your normal driver.
and most importantly
*EXPERIMENT!!! that's how I found out how to do most of the stuff that I know now. Just check out one of my more recent songs. I once started making pure shit, but I moved up to great stuff after learning the software completely.
