- Song was made in couple of days, about 3-4 hours.
- I made it with FL studio 9
- I used 10€ logitech headphones, I have no idea about the quality of the mix

Chapter 4

This is my almost complete rap beat. It's funny I don't listen rap or make rap, but someway I am starting to like doing these beats.

This one I made about couple of weeks ago.

It's pretty simple, only one melodie replaying again and again, but there is a space for a rap too. :)

FL Studio 9

FL Studio (formerly known as FruityLoops) is a digital audio workstation developed by Belgian company Image-Line Software. FL Studio was originally the creation of Didier Dambrin who went on to take the role of the lead programmer at Image-Line, responsible for its core development.

FL Studio features a graphical user interface based on a pattern-based music sequencer. The environment includes MIDI support and incorporates features for editing, mixing, recording, and mastering audio. Completed songs or clips may be exported to Microsoft WAV, MP3, and the OGG Vorbis format using various interpolation algorithms.

Today I tried to do a rap beat. It is maybe the easiest music genre. Okay, all music can be hard, but that must be one of the easiest to complete. I would upload here a link, where is the beginning of that song, but i don't know any places where to upload audio. But I try to find something. It would be better if a player would be here, so you don't have to go to other website.

I also had thoughts that I could write something else here too than music things. I don't have anything in my mind right now, but in the future I will.

edit. I uploaded a short sample to youtube. Here it is:

Chapter 2


Now I am going to tell you what stuff I use when I am making music.

The most important thing is my laptop of course. I use an integrated soundcard, I am not a pro so I don't care much of those things. I used to use Koss headphones but those went broken so I am using now some shitty logitech headphones.

The program I am using is FL Studio 9. I have there some VSTi's installed. I also have couple of real instruments, an acoustic guitar and a keyboard ( Yamaha psr-403 ). I don't usually use them when working out something, but they give me an ispiration.

I haven't done music a long time. I could say I have done music many years, but the truth is I've been very unactive. Maybe a half hour per day, maybe less. Sometimes more than month breaks. Now I am trying to get with this blog my motivation back to this hobby.

Let's meet again in next chapter.
