I use it. Its a good production software. I also use my midi keyboard with it and about to get an mpc 1000 sometime soon, but I would get use to it first before you start gettin equipment hooked up. Enjoy making music man.

using it too since version 6 or 7. for a lot of free vst plugins you could check out THIS.

also using the korg nanokeys sometimes.

i'm not good in telling what's good and what's not but i recommend using the piano roll view. plus you should kick out the limiter in the master channel, it alienates the whole output in a bad way. at least that's my opinion.

i use it ... probably equally as much as the mpc ... it's a great platform to start off with. i use a korg padkontrol and a m-audio axiom 61 with it

Yeah, I too started off using Fruity Loops. It's a good beginners program for sure. From then I moved on to strictly hardware, but Fuity Loops/FL Studio really did help me learn the basics of production.

And a tip: Never, ever stop making music!

I agree, it helps you learn. I know people who use it exclusively and whoops the shit out of my hardware stuff, but the one thing they lack is that hardwork and grime you put in and get out out hardware. So let me say this, you dont need the MPCs, and the SPs, just a good sub, speakers, an interface and a midi controller, then download like crazy and experiment.

i use it cause i got it for free...but i don't use any stock sounds, i wouldn't recommend any of them. go digging, and find your own samples and just make your own sound kits. that's what i do.

as far as vst's and stuff, there aren't very many good ones out there for free...i have been able to find some pretty cool 8-bit synths and sound effects though, if you're into that sorta thing. otherwise, be prepared to pay a lot of $$$ for like massive or whatever people are using these days.

Hi, if You like a 12 bit / 8 bit (familiar of that) try Timemachine vst - simple emulator but can be useful :)

Good looks on the tips y'all. I'm mostly working on properly chopping samples and coming up with drums. I know it all comes with practice but coming up with good drum patterns can be a bitch lol

Drop the sample into Edison and chop it. Then drag that into slices and play with it on your computer keyboard
