So you decided you want to become a music producer, but don’t know where to begin?
This will give you the chance to test it out and get a feel for all of it’s features. The main setback is you cannot save, but you can still export the songs and play them just about anywhere. In fact, I did this for a time when I was messing around with the idea myself. I probably made an album or two just by leaving the program open and coming back from time to time to finish what I made and export it.
Once you make the commitment and download the trial, there is definitely a learning curve before you churn out the next mega hit. I certainly advise that you take the time to get to know your DAW by reading the manual. If that is not your cup of tea, then why not get some videos under your belt.
Image-line (makers of FL Studio), have put together a pretty amazing YouTube channel for you to sink your music making teeth into. I would recommend the Getting Started playlist even if you are a seasoned producer trying FL Studio for the first time.
This will be enough to cover the basics of navigating and provide some valuable insight into the tools at your disposal.
Once you get your feet wet, then you can begin the long and exciting journey of creating the next mega hit… or at least something for you and your friends to enjoy at the next party. Gotta start somewhere, right?
