I’m new to computer music and I’m looking for recording/composition software. Could someone answer a couple questions for me? Is FL Studio only for loop music or can it be used for normal stuff too? Would some other software be better for non-loop composition? Maybe something towards the cheaper side, but not crippleware. I’m a bit low on funds.

Thanks for any answers.

For even less money… $39 you can purchase Music Creator 4, which is a full featured Daw. It’s actually a slimmed downed version of Sonar 6. It still offers plenty of features that a number of users probably would never use. IMO…it has a better work flow than Reaper. However, Reaper is skin-able, and has numerous features. You can download a non-crippled evaluation. It’s like $50 for a NON-commercial license. I think it’s $200 for a commercial one?? You can usually find MC4 at BestBuy, Micro Center, Staples and other similar retailers. My bad if it’s not appropriate to mention… Read more »

Thanks Ronnie, reaper is exactly what I was looking for. It’s full featured, cheap and doesn’t take up a whole DVD for installation. I took a while and checked out many different programs and reaper really stands out from the rest by a mile. I downloaded some of their demo projects and seeing how they did things, I used the same techniques and have already recorded my own song using Reaper after using it for only a few hours. Music Creator 4, on the other hand, is exactly the kind of crippleware I hate. It’s so simpleminded that I feel… Read more »

Glad you found something that works for you youngster! I don’t think you’re a moron but you certainly act like one when you choose to make needless “attack responses” because someone tried to recommend an affordable program to you. FACT: You stated you’re NEW to computer music. 2nd: You stated you were low on funds. I recommended something to you based on this criteria. Do your research before commenting, which will void you of making ignorant outburst, because you’re a “newb” that’s assuming things. MC4 is the same exact sound engine as Sonar 6, with some minor limits that’s only… Read more »

Tremendous props to Ronnie. Sometimes people need to be shown how to act, and you broke it down!

woah, they have certainly been hard at work. I have the boxed version, and if they could make the sample layers in the FPC be like the sampler channels (you click on the sample and the sampler settings come up for it), then I might just pay $30 for lifetime updates to get that!

Wow! Why does everyone need to be so politically correct and inoffensive? Are you all so delicate and fragile that you can’t even stand the idea that someone might be rude? Are you made of porcelin and so easily chipped and shattered? Sure the guy was a little brash, but to attempt to emasculate him in the expression of his feelings, the way religion emasculates, is so sick and twisted that to live life in that manner is nihilism. How can you stand to go thru life putting on the glib happy face of nothingness? Has all your rage been… Read more »
