A Good Music Production Program?
« on: November 20, 2009, 04:55:13 pm »
Ok. So I have a pc, and I'm looking for something better than melodyne. I would like program that at least has autotune and a bit crusher, but is fairly simple to use. Also, I lack a piano to plug into the computer, so is there any program that lets me use my keyboard as midi input for a VST?

FL Studios is the obvious answer, that's what most big producers use. I personally don't know too many others, I'm more into mixing, but once you get FL down you can do just about anything.

There's always the old standby sonar. It's kinda expensive, though.

Here's the link for it.

Personally, I think FL Studio isss kinda shit. BUT THAT'S JUST BECAUSE it doesn't do the thangs I look fo'. Hence, Ableton for me!

That saiddd,
FL Studio sounds like it could be exactly what you're looking for!
You'll have to get the autotune thing seperately, though. I believe that's a propietary technology? But you should just be able to use Melodyne as a VST in FL Studio and be fine.

It also has a bit crusher (amongst other effects), step sequencer interface, etc etc.

Look up a couple of youtube videos of how other people use it, there're quite a few. That's how I learned. Once you start getting the basics everything else really just falls into place, but it is really confusing at first.
