>watching anime about manga artists
>decide to do something more productive than playing videogames and watching anime
>torrent fl studio
its been 3 months already and I've already made some tracks
I really recommend producing music as a hobby if you have a lot of free time, its great!!!!
I already made a few tracks, share you're stuff if you do the same:
I started out with no experience in music theory or playing an instrument whatsoever, ask me anything, I'll be more than glad to help any fellow neet anon in the righteous path to making music!!!!
also a little about myself
i've been browsing r9k for a while
i have a huge case of psychosis and i struggle with depression and anxiety everyday
i live in a faraway country in the east and am forced to pursue school there instead of america from family
i found making music as a hobby as a getaway to all my problems and its honestly great.
if you guys have any questions plz ask and ill be more than happy to help and answer them
yes its a hobby and basically im just trying to help other fellow neets find a more productive and positive hobby than just anime and playing vidya. amateur production in music as a hobby has helped me a lot in furthering my steps into self imrpovement and i honestly just think its such a great hobby that i wanna share with other anons!!!!
sorry lol its just a hobby that im working on in the side honestly i just do it because it boosts my shitty self esteem once in a while that helps me work further on on other stuf
>did the same in the beginning of 2014
>not a single track finished
How the fuck did you do it, OP?
It's so depressing when I try to make music.
I started out with reverse sampling with music I already enjoyed listening to and just went from there. I started reading up on music theory and self teaching myself the basic functions on the daw im using
i tried to use fl studios a while ago but i'm not very good
i took an audio production class in high school but i can't even remember the software we used so all my knowledge is meaningless
when you stretch a bit of music, how can you get it to line up with the beats in the track?
I'm trying to take a music sample and line it up so i can put lower kicks and higher snares over the drums that are already on it, but no matter what i do to the file or to the project's bpm i can never get it to line up
>I really recommend producing music as a hobby if you have a lot of free time, its great!!!!
how do i learn to enjoy music though? it just sounds like noise to me, even the well liked and skilled artists. i can't imagine anything i make will be enjoyable to listen to either
I don't have the motivation to do that or anything at all
have you listened to the /mu/ essentials? imo a good place to start if you have only listened to popular/widely acclaimed music
there are some good albums there if you haven't heard them already
