Re: Need help, please, I dont know where to start from

What specific problems are you having? Also, to be quite honest, one month is pretty much nothing when it comes to learning how to make music entirely in a DAW and I say this just to be clear, I hope you are in it for the long haul. Realistically, especially if you don't play an instrument or have some music background already, it'll might be a year or more before you have something you'll want to share with your friends. This also assumes you are consistently putting in regular hours on throughout the week

what did you think? You just turn up and start making music exactly like you want it? Fuck you man for not giving it any respect. Do you tie a cloth round your head and become a master of martial arts? Delete fl studios and watch tv... Or don't... No sympathy from me as youve probably gathered

Naw. We just blew your distortion of reality. We all have hopes and expectations. It's part of life realizing if they are realistic or not.

All depends on your aspirations. You can get a bunch of loops from commercial sources (loopmasters.com). String some loops together and off you go. Just don't post that here.

You're in for a learning curve. I was able to make some tracks relatively quickly, but they didn't quite sound right. I shared them anyway. The whole point is to enjoy making tunes and getting better at it.

Re: Need help, please, I dont know where to start from

Edit: I don't think anyone has had a trouble-free journey through the jungle of making music on a DAW. It's hard work and you need a sharp machete. If you are passionate about music and making music, it will be easier (even joyful, exciting, fulfilling, life-changing, etc) as you make it to different plateaus.
I've been at it for 20 years now (damn!), making music, playing in bands, tweaking/designing sounds and I still learn new things every other day. Still curious.

Sorry man. Really wasn't my intent. I can't say whether or not I thought making music with a DAW would be easy or not when I started. But I do remember being frustrated along the way. Then I finally got it into my head that it was going to take a while to get good at.

But seriously, if you are having specific issues ask specific questions. Loads of people here love to spend time talking about making music in DAWs. It is just kinda hard to answer such a broad/vague post.

That is the coolest description of Industrial/EBM I've ever heard! So true.

Ah, yes, also get a good microphone, lots of distortion and a vocoder to have some proper sinister lyrics to go along in style.

Sucking but thinking you are alright serves the good purpose of acquiring the skills to use the program. Those first few months or even years of ignorance are what catapults lots of artists into full blown hobby or career mode. I think a good place to start would be finding someone else who is in a similar spot and sending lots of wips back and forth with each other.

Re: Need help, please, I dont know where to start from

Buy the Idiots Guide to Music Theory. I spent years trying to figure out how to make music and spitting out garbage until I read that book. Granted, I did stumble into a few listenable pieces of music by accident, but nothing really clicked until I learned some basic theory. After that I started analyzing the chord progressions and keys of my favorite songs which allowed me to see the theory at work. Everything started making sense at that point.

Take a song you really like and attempt to cover it. Figure out the notes, progressions, scales, whatever that are in it and try to copy it. This will provide a good walkthrough of how the pieces of a track all work together to form the whole.
