fl studio in 20 reviews

Karleen even showed us how to import plugins into FL Studio something all my other courses that I have paid for didn't do.

So you will never get bored, and will often feel the urge to pause the course and play with FL studio on your own and see what wonderful sounds you can come up with.

Someone new will learn valuable knowledge to create interesting game music and also learn the basics of FL Studio in the same time.

Very good course if you’re trying to get into fl studio, the content is delivered very simply and is easily understandable I like the vibe of the Instructor, it's easy going and understandable up to now.

"I thought coming into this course, that I might not have been able to get as much out of it because I have a decent understanding of music theory and I've worked with FL Studio before.

I had a very minimal hobbiest music background (1 year of casual study/practice) coming into this course, and slight familiarity with Unity and FL Studio.

The music in this course is done in FL Studio and the DAW side of things is relatively light, so you will likely need to get to know your DAW of choice yourself as you go along.

I'm learning a tune about composing in general and composing for video games in particular.

This is a great course if you have interest in making or understanding how to make music for video games.

Very thorough well-planned introduction to music for video games on a beginner level and people with intermediate knowledge to brush up their skills.

Great detail, finally able to wrap my head around music theory and composition as it fits within video games!
