I did use FruityLoops to mix some of the music, and for doing some minor mastering, before I export the file as whatever.

Lately I've switched to Cubase since I'm recording instead of "typing", but I do use FruityLoops if I want to listen to
a piano piece from midi, because I have a piano VSTi( i think it's a VST ), The Grand, great piano sound.

Depends if you wanna pay or get them for free. What I know is that you can get alot of synthesizers directly from FL homepage.
And you can get packages with real instruments like EDIROL:

I use FL Studio and Ableton Live for producing. Get some nice VST's from Native Instruments, www.nativeinstruments.com. I use everything from them and they're one of my favourite VST companies. The Akoustic Piano VST that they have is amazing. It's the closest I've ever heard to a real grand piano. For synthesizers I use a lot of Korg stuff, just do a quick search and you'll find some stuff.

Nope, but I guess it does not play such big role, its also "pianoroll based" programm.

I use MadTracker 2.6.1 via Rewire with Cubasis VST32, so I have the advantages from tracker programs and pianoroll based program advantages.

VSTs... naah, forget it, in electronic better to use the real synth and so you dont have any latency and also you have simplicity (it STILL is the best to have simplicity)
-- when I wake up, I just switch on the synth and play, no messy software junk and problems.

I really wonder why I havent got any contact 20 years ago when computers were more reliable, colder, silent and not so messy and no latency.

The first thing that ever got me goign was actually a trial version of garage band >.< After that I got a copy of acid and it glitched on me so I stopped for a while. Then I got more heavily into electronic music and found that reason 3.0 was the highest quality computer synthing program available (at that time according to my friends Razz). Then I gave up after getting frustrated and when i got a new comp tried reason 4 ... I'm running into many of the same frustrations and might give FL a shot though I just got a tip from a friend that qubass might be my cup of tea.... so looks like ive got some experimenting to do

So, for me who have never known what FL is, and dont want to search for the info cause Im feeling lazy just now Razz

"What is it", how good is it and how expensive?? Smile
I know basically what it is, but guess its more than just a simple music-editing-software?

I've just registered myself here.
I have been jusing FL Studio for just over 2 years now.
I came here to get some more knowledge about music, instead of just placing random notes in the piano roll.
I do actually play guitar and the drums, want to add piano to the list but we don't have one here. I do have a MIDI keyboard for use FL Studio... Very Happy

Edit: See my avatar... xD

PoiZone is great too Cool

My problem is that I have problems with my drumming, I cant seem to get anything good out of it, but I'll might need more drumset research. But that's not my biggest problem...

First of all I cant figure out what type of music I wanna make, I'm very fond of guitar + orcestra and trance aswell as ordinary piano music, and be able to merge piano, acoustic guitar and trance together would be epic. I've been doing alot of composing lately, and I got a few finished 3 min pieces that I've composed on my piano. Aswell as a bunch of small 30 seconds made for testing orcestra stuff. And even more riffs and small themes.

I've been thinking about transfering my pieces I composed on the piano into some sort of trance music, but I feel that I completely lack the trance skills, tried listening to other stuff, but I totally lack the skills of layering and getting it to sound like good trance. I do believe it will come with practice tho, since I havent been making alot of trance, just tried a few things that failed.

Thomandy: There are several version, and the cheapest is pretty cheap, but the most expensive isnt that expensive either.

Demo available too if you wanna try out:
