So is it just me, or is this REALLY HARD!!! Making music is insane.
If anyone has any tips/tricks/ or great programs that they would
recommend a true beginner, I would greatly appreciate it.
I have about 10 years of musical background with several instruments,
but as far as making music on the computer goes, I’m spent.
I wish I could take music from albums, but then it’s copyright
infringement. Does anyone know how much you have to pay to use a song in
a game? I’m an indie developer so I’m not sure if they would even

It is a good question.
For beginners it is easy to find it difficult to find the time to learn
a new program. There is alot to know. A good starter program would be
something like FL studio. The user interface is basic. You can download
the demo version online and then register it for $150.00
FL studio is great for sound effect creation. Lets say you have made
some home recordings of things banging and clanging. Through your sound
card you can load your samples into a file. Then start Fruity Loops
In the Settings menu, go to the file icon and select your file of
samples. Close FL studio and start it again. Your sounds are now
available on the left margin under your file name. Now comes the fun
part. Just open the file by clicking it (in the browser, left hand
margin) and drop it onto the channel window. A sampler window opens and
now you can tweak the sound in lots of ways.
