Man I'm a god at FL Studio, I open up my Sawer, insert a small tune, and I make something amazing using presets. I then publish it on soundcloud and gain like 2000 plays. My family thinks i'm the shit, my friends think i'm the shit, my band teacher thinks i'm the shit, and wow, i'm going to do this for college. This is my passion. I'm talented and a natural at this

Ur gonna go to uni and then meet dozens of "the shits". Talent is only achieved through hard work so please humble urself. 2000 views isnt a lot. I once made a rap song about twerking and it got like 1.5k views on youtube. Being proud of something so small is really something id advise against. Who knows maybe you will understand when you go to college.
Inb4 falling for bait.
Is there a question in there? Regardless probably a troll but if not, like the other poster said there are a lot of 'the shits'. It is sad but hard work and even some talent don't mean a lot if there is nothing special about it. Also 2000 views isn't a lot, most cat videos get more than that.
yeah, no. Only kids that try to make future house/big room or whatever the fuck is in, use presets. I mean, come on, OP. You lack the creative ability to turn a fucking knob? It's called a fucking modwheel, use it.
There are soundcloud/bandcamp threads 5x a day on /mu/
Are you a dumb dumb?
Look, I'll post one of mine. Nobody cares bro. No one cares at all.
This isn't /b/. I assume this is your first rodeo on boards other than that.
I do infact use the mod wheel from time to time. I don't fucking know how to make my own presets. That actually requires work and shit, but i'm too busy with school and i'll get my ass on the table in college
Then you're not good at this, OP. A decent producer knows how to make his sounds from scratch or make them adapt to what he has. You're just a cookie cutter and apparently not a good one at that. Take it from a guy that's signed to Spinnin'.
I know im not a fucking good producer and I want to do it in college. I want to spend money doing something I don't even know if I want to do in life. Why is Aphex Twin so good? I can probably recreate his stuff easily, I don't understand it
If I were you I'd take piano courses and get really good.
But then I like edm that has a good keyboard player like Feed Me much more than boring people that make nice synth sounds but aren't good at playing.
I really need to because I want to start a funk/acid jazz band but no one young seems to like the genre but me and guitar isn't how it's written.
I am going to take piano and then jazz piano for it. Funk is basically jazz goes pop and they heavily overlap.
Much of edm is based on disco.
If you can't play then you can't write anything worthwhile. Edm is full of the same kids that punk is. People pretending to be musicians.
