    I use Fruityloops to make all my music. I don't rip any loops though. Everything I make is original. Are you talking about taking songs and cutting them apart?

    loops

    You are a genius I love your stuff I am just curious where u get your orchestral,vocal stuff from,
    or how do you get that into fruityloops,
    I am just new to this and find it facinating.
    your music has in fact inspired me to have a look at this,
    i am actually just a webdesigner with no music experience but great expectations any help or ideas appreciated
    ok just visited your site nice ,
    how about those tutorials then???

    Yeah, I'm with Calpomatt 100%.
    Fruityloops is easy & fun to get into. I use it to make all my loops.
    I'm learning all the time with it, there is so much to it, but then it's not too scary for a beginner to get into. Definately get hold of it now.

    If your after a tutorial, check out this introduction to Fruityloops put together by non-other than myself Introduction to Fruityloops

    Hope it helps

    noodleweb - Thanks man. For a while, I just used the samples included in the program. If you go to my site, I have a .flp file you can download and check out. I would basically take the strings_softer instrument and apply a filter to it to make it sound like vocals. I used that same instrument for most of the orchestral pieces too.

    Recently, I purchased the soundfont addon to Fruityloops. It's only $30 and well worth it. Once you have the addon, you can use the thousands of free soundfonts out on the net. Here are some good links for ya if you get the SF player:

    http://www.thesoundsite.net/
    http://hammersound.net/

    Some other good sample/help sites:

    http://www.futureproducers.com/
    http://www.samplefusion.com/
    http://www.hollywoodedge.com/
    http://www.synthzone.com/

    Good luck man.

    - Matt

    Hey Calpo, cool links. Wow - thesoundsite is SoundFont heaven!
    I've been using the Soundfont player more and more. Soundfonts are excellent, although I'm not entirely sure how they're put together Nevertheless, they're so easy to fire up and to use.
    Thanks

    Acid Pro 4.0 by sonic foundry is also really good.

    Magix

    Check out Magix Music Maker. (www.magix.com) I don't use it anymore, as I am more into actual recording, and use loops primarily to suppliment what I have recorded, but Magix is where I started. It's extremely easy to use, it's very affordable, and it comes with a ton of loops straight from the box. If you get more into this, you might check out Cool Edit 2000 or Cool Edit Pro. (www.syntrillium.com)

    Hope that helps!
