Okay, so, after purchasing FL Studio Producer Edition, I've finally had some time to sit down with a single track and put some thought and devotion into making it. This is the first tune I've managed to come up with that's (in my opinion) worth posting to the internet. It took about 10 hours to complete, and all sounds are made with Sytrus, 3xOsc (actually, just the bass synth) and free VSTs included in Producer Edition, except for Maximus, which I used for mastering.

Fans of Basshunter might notice a striking similarity between this and some of his earlier work, with the main difference being that my synths suck compared to his and this song does not include his pretty voice singing about video games. Before you get up in arms about copyright infringement, however, I'd like to assure you that none of the melodies. sounds, drums, or even chord progressions* (*that I'm aware of) are taken from Basshunter's work.

Enjoy, and write me a review telling me how to improve!

EDIT: Upon listening, it appears that the file was compressed in such a way that the bass comes through too strong and the mid range is muddled a lot. I'll try and find some way of getting around that soon. Maybe tomorrow.

cool builds

sweet beet :D

i like it, it a tone of perfection :D


Definitly has a sweet beat. Something I could listen to for hours.

Keep on making music please! ;)

Judging by this song, you don't have access to external VSTs yet.. Regardless, I can see your potential shining through this cloud of what I call "FL-y dance". Your melody and pattern ideas are pretty sweet. I actually started making dance myself on FL 6 and my stuff sounded similar to this. You're already using automations and mixing up your patterns/parts a bit. Good job to you sir. Keep on doing what you love! :)

Thanks for your help! You are... completely right. I didn't use any VSTi plugins other than Sytrus and 3xOsc in this song. I've begun looking at other VSTs that I can get for free, but I'm not sure where to start looking.
