    I've had lately an artists block or something. I'm just not feeling it and can't get anything done :(
    when that happens to me, i find some brilliant new music that really inspires me and it seems to give me quite a bit of direction

    That, or watch some movies, read some books/comics. Inspiration can be found anywhere.

    Why are you using fl 9 anyway? Moving from fl studio 9 to 10 was the best decision I've done in a while, and that was almost a year ago.

    i suck at fl studio and making music in general

    i've been trying for years but i have no clue in what direction to go to learn

    people just seem to pick their skill up out of nowhere

    and music theory and mastering/mixing seem impossible to learn unless you already have some sort of knowledge of them

    I did that shit for a year until I had ANYTHING. And I don't mean I did a song every now and then, I was doing that shit every day.

    It takes a long time, just gotta read up on stuff. I always hated how everyone seemed to be automatically better than me, but just practice man.

    Mess around with it, go in every direction possible until you find the one for you. And there's plenty of free tutorials around the 'net on both music theory and mixing.

    ive been making music for soon to be 2 years, and im only just finding my style. it varies upon how much time you spend in your daw, and how committed you are to making everything from scratch, but in the end you'll find everything you want in music if you put the time in :)

    Did sound for a children's charity fundraiser.
    I only turned up (With my whole rig) to do the sound for one band and a solo artist but stuck around and did the whole event for them (Playing children's CDs and such - They were going to do it through a pisspoor system). Got paid my expenses, very cool, great experience and it felt good helping out.

    It was a great for networking too, many a business card was handed out.

    Does anyone here use Reason 6? I use Reason 5 and I'm wondering if it's worth upgrading.
    Yes I am, I was previously using record though because I wanted to record guitar/singing etc. I went to reson to get the whole thing of easy decent recording as well as a load of midi instruments and synths and effects. I like the way it simulates all the rack devices so you can quite easily figure out what you're doing.

    Other than recording audio I think the main advantages it also has are the echo (a decent tape echo effect which is way better than straight digital delay) and the neptune pitch adjuster thing for recorded vocals: you can do all sorts with it, it's quite handy for transposing random vocal samples to fit with your song if you so wish. Hope thats useful info :)

    Being the fact that I'm broke and I'm perfectly content and grateful for the resources I have I couldn't careless if I had 10 or not.

    Anyone else have any ideas on how to fix my problem ?

    I bought a trumpet a few years ago thinking I'd be able to teach myself like with guitar, not so!
    Unfortunately it's quite a difficult instrument, as oppsed to say, sexaphone. It's gonna be pretty hard without getting some lessons to start you off imo :(

    You've tried youtube right?

    this sounds like guitar center

    Edited:

    that distortion is too forgiving, play without it so you can actually hear your mistakes

    Gotten a job as a studio-mixer and general sound-guy in my local town(I have 1-2 co-workes depending on what's needed).

    It's one of the most interesting but tiring jobs I've ever had. It's fun when you get free concerts, talk to famous people, mix and such, but on the other side you have talentless youth that have no idea how to play(in studio), don't want to use metronomes and weird artists that are really picky about everything.
    We're mixing for this metal-band right now, and it's the most out of time crap I've ever listened to, and they didn't want to use metronome.

    We spent 8 hours in ProTools stitching and listening, on the bass and drums alone. We weren't going to let the band off so easily, so we dragged the drummer and bassist into the mixing room, so they could hear how bad they were. Me and my co-worker continuously moaned, commented and laughed at the bad playing, while the bassist and drummer sat in the room with us. It was glorious!

    you should work with me. Our policy is that we will not polish a turd and we make everyone replay the parts until either they get it right or we give up and make them pay a fee for us to play for them

    Wish it was that easy. We're partly state-funded so that younger people can record their stuff, to increase the culture and music scene in my city. Problem is that most of them can't fucking play!

    Tomorrow, me and some of my colleagues are going to be rigging a Beatles-concert for the younger musicians in the general area. I just know it will be Yesterday, yellow submarine and let it be on repeat for the whole evening..

    FL Studio suddenly doesn't want me to use my mouse scroll. It just doesn't work in fl studio, but in everywhere else it works fine. I've looked through the settings and there wasn't anything that could fix it (at least I didn't notice anything).
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Yup, Ableton.

    But seriously though, try rebooting.

    I felt like making a few songs. Either I suck horribly or I'm too inexperienced for this stuff because I end up making every song sound loosely like an another song (albeit shittier) which is a do-not-want result.
    Ookay. I'll let composing be for now.

    Hey hey musical homies, I'm selling an album on bandcamp this weekend, $2.00 CAD for over a little over an hour's worth of music. (Mostly drum & bass and drumstep with some dubstep/house)

    No one knows who I am so I thought I'd get some word out.
