Yeah I would need to get a sampler! FL looks pretty cool and hopefully quite straightforward as I'm a total beginner at this kinda thing! Cheers man
They all have a learning curve I'd say, and not many of them share a common interface so it's tricky. People tend to get comfortable with something
and stick to it. I started with FL which is excellent for building loops and crafting sounds, then I took it into Acid for sequencing ..
Another great tool is Reason because you have better visualization, you are working with a virtual rack of equipment.. the only reason I don't do a
lot with Reason is that it uses proprietary sound files for the most part, you can work with it but sometimes that barrier can get in your way.
Most of these apps have trials.. and acid even has an express version that's totally free..
Another app I just thought of that I used for a while is Reaper.. it's "free" in a sense because the evaluation never runs out, it just nags you for
like 15 seconds every time you start it up.... it has an interface somewhat similar to Acid Studio, but Acid has been out for a long long time..
