    I use it but people good at the technical side would call me a beginner I expect.

    Musically is my thing so it doesnt matter what I use.

    it doesn't take long at all if you know how to use the F1 key. basically it brings up the help page for whatever you have in focus. if you have the mixer open and hit F1 it takes you to the mixer help page, if you have the wasp open, it takes you to the wasp page. wanna learn how to program the sytrus, open sytrus and hit the F1 key, it'll tell you all about the knobs and what they do and give you tips on how to use them so you can apply that knowledge. remember the F1 key, it is ur friend.

    The first time after a bit i quit lol, but i got some help after i tried again, it was hard to me at first, i still don't know how to use everything in there(most of the stuff i don't know how to do i might not even need right now), but i know enough to get by.
    Hear some of my music, click the Fl Studio image below. Yes i'm a CHRISTIAN, and i don't critique secular songs, so please don't ask me to if it has any offensive lyrics.

    good advice being given so far.
    but you wont 'fully' learn about anything until you 'fully' want/need to use it.

    so, it takes as long as it takes for you to grow into a dynamic and well-rounded musician, and then some.

    early on, if you dont NEED the things in there, let along know how to use them, then it doesnt really matter if they are there or not. as long as what you need to move forward is in front of you.

    for me the key is that *I* am dictating what i do. if im using something, and i get an idea, and i dont know how to achieve it, i figure it out. if the tool is incapable of doing it, i find a new tool. the best tool is one that never stops you, regardless of what level you are at.

    it took me about 6 mos when I first started to learn everything (i was a alow learner) I practiced everyday and watched youtube and warbeats.com video. it help me a lot. I don't use it as much since I got a mpc, but I still do sometimes

    I made a beat the first time I ever used it. It was the first beat making software I ever used. But it took me years to learn all of the features to the point where I can do what I do now inside of it. I know tricks that most people don't and that took forever. I think only the designers of the software and people that use only FL Studio for over 5 years might have a better understanding of it.
