    Hello from Finland

    .. so hi all

    I'm a guitarist/bassist trying to turn into home music producing. I've made and played music in bands for 15 years or so, but somehow I've always managed to not learn pretty much anything about DAW's and such, somebody else has always taken care of that. Now that the internet seems to have broken most social bones from everybody, I've noticed that it's really hard to find people who would actually have the time to go jam out and rehearse together and stuff. Sad as that is, I was hoping I could still learn the digital ropes to produce my own music.

    I went for FL Studio (the cheapest version) and have been dappling with that for some days now. I'm really not too much the wiser for it yet. I also noticed that I need the more expensive version to actually record any real instruments! Kind of a bummer but I have my hands full with everything else this program has for a while.

    I would like to learn to make some semi-decent beats, and add bass and guitar to those. My music tastes run from fusion jazz to hip hop to black metal to delta blues, so I'm really not aiming for any particular genre. Actually one of the best things when you get older (I'm 42) is that you can just make music for the fun of it, without having to stress over any pipedreams of "making it big". So this is just for myself.

    I'll be seeing all of you around.

    I'd say once you get used to fl studio, upgrade to producer edition at least.
    But, only after you have produced at least 15 beats beforehand.

    Interfaces will come with daws that have live instrument recording enabled by default.
    Producer since 2010.
    Tecmo, Ubisoft, Bandai, Marvel, Arc.

    Tervetuloa vaan

    I've been here for a long time. Not really a FL specialist, but can help with most things. Also, in my forties and from Finland.

    Moro!

    YEah I've now fiddled with the FL Fruity Suck-ass-edition and although I've found my way around to getting a few things done, I'm still hugely frustrated with how far I'm from getting an idea down from my head before I get bogged down by my inability with the interface. And the Fruity edition also has a lot of things locked so I really gotta upgrade asap. Sampling would be one of the things to learn, but yeah there's a hundred others in that line as well.

    Fuck yeah man!!! its awesome to hear someone like you getting into production. youve got quite a fun journey ahead of you. and everything is going to look and seem crazy but you will get the hang out it in no time. just start out small. watch some basic tutorials on how to make a beat and go from there. i learned a lot from a guy named SeamlessR. he is on youtube. i would start there

    Goodluck! feel free to message me with any questions you have. im happy to help!

    Love - Calectic

    Yeah, the cheapest version is just enough to get started, but not enough to do the full job you'll eventually need done.Good luck with your future learning curves, you're at the tip of the iceberg. You should be able to find plenty of help here.
