@djDarkX - I'd be seriously considering this if I wasn't already set up for the time being, it's already taken me years to learn the plugins I have as it is (I have bad impulse control when I see cool things on sale)  :p  


@HexMozart88 - I also started out with guitar tablature...  :wub:   I'm still a bit on the slow side when it comes to reading notes because I don't really use scores for writing?  I write quicker using piano roll methods, but I'm trying to get myself to use music theory on a more conscious level these days.  I still can't see myself using the cubase score editor that much in the long run (even though it is very powerful in the pro version) but at the very least I wanna start being way more conscious of my keys and chord variation/voicing in the future.  Cubase has a bunch of tools for staying in specific keys/switching keys and adding chords quickly, so it's not like I even have laziness as an excuse haha.

FL studio. Been using this DAW for the last 8+ years or so. It doesn't have the best interface and tools for working with audio / vocals, but I give it an S+ for MIDI work. Most fluid and intuitive piano roll I've ever used, and I've tried a lot of different DAWs. Works best for me, especially since I use more synths/samplers and VSTs.

I use FL Studio for my compositions, I think this is the best audio editor for beginners. It also fits perfectly with my VST plugins and gives a great sound. I recently bought new VST plugins for my electric guitar from the Blue Buzz Music store and the operator offered me a licensed version of FL Studio for my purchase, but I already had it. The sound quality of your musical instruments can be adjusted in FL Studio and thanks to various plugins, you can achieve the perfect sound. Good luck.

RMMV
I use FL Studio (the $200~ version, forgot what it's called)
It took me a long time to have the money to buy it but .. god. It's SO much more user friendly than the freeware DAW I used before (cakewalk). I know it hurts to shovel out that much money if you're low income, but it's so worth it IMO. If you can, highly recommend.

There's also a huge community around it, so it's easy to learn. I'm particularly fond of busyworksbeats

I had a birthday party earlier today. No-one showed up. ;_;
yay my offer is up :) joys
@wrigty12 hi! thanks for showing interest in my work. Sadly the tablet I'm using broke, so I wasn't able to create anything for weeks. Got a new one with display, I'm still not used to it though, so I'm still practicing, doing basic drawings again. Also I'm in my last year of college. Thesis, projects and other activities takes most of my time ;_;.
I'll get back to it whenever I get a free time.
Any artists here planning on participating in the Inktober art prompts this October?
It's right around the corner.
It's rpg maker related so I'll post it here, I worked on a little free rpg maker zine and this was my piece. Play Grimm's Hollow if you haven't already, I liked it a lot. (i don't remember if posting a link to a product even if free is allowed via profile posts, so if anyone knows lemme know)
