Professionalise,Where do you start?
« on: January 07, 2010, 10:45:46 PM »
Hey Mark, how's life?
Love your work :)
I wanted to ask you if possible more than just a question....maybe even get a small advice..

I love music, and i love the gaming music industry.
I can remember games that i played only so i could hear the soundtrack(Civilization 4,Heros IV).
I'm not a proffessional and there isnt even a gaming industry where i live,
But i do enjoy working and composing with FL9, and Omnisphere...really "noobish" tools, and this brings me to my first question:
1.Where do i start?
i mean, should i study music? or simply based on skill and luck?
2.what tools do you work with? what do you recommand?

im sorry for my poor grammer, and i have alot more questions but i dont wanna waist alot of your time.
Do appriciate all the help :)
Have a wonderfull day!

Fruity Loops is fine. Lots of people are using it to a professional standard, and Omnisphere (at least Omnisphere 2) is certainly a professional product - great sounds, easy to program and some of the lock features when searching are awesome.

Where do you start. Load up Fruity Loops and have a play. That's how I started with Trackers back in the late 80's. For sure I was learning violin, and you could argue that music is in my family so perhaps it's something we're switched on to, but simply have a play. Studying music can help, for some people.

I've been using Cubase ever since it first came out on the Atari ST - and still use it on PC now. I've not much experience with other sequencers and it can be a personal thing, so the best thing is to get to a shop who will demo the various packages for you and let you spend some time playing with them. You really need to do that before spending £500 on software - you may not like one in particular.
