fruity loops is the easiest one by far. you should try it again sometime. it samples but it's real shitty compared to getting even a cheap sampler.

cause when i tried fruity loops,i couldnt figure outhow to change the sounds n shit in the middle of the song,and i only knew how to use there pre made drum loops and sounds in the program n shit,so i had nothing to work with.

Get Reason and a midi keyboard. But understand the program may take some time to learn all its intricasies (sp?) It takes some time to learn how to utilize all u have to work w/ but its definetly a good program for the money. I wanna say the latest version will run you about $400-$500. You can then couple that w/ Recycle to cut up samples like what you where talking about.

practice, if you get annoyed with fruity loops, dont even bother getting reason or cubase, you just gotta mess about with them, dont be afraid to experiment. if you see a button, or option, click it n see what happens.

your not gonna become a master beat maker over night man.

^the FUCK are you talking about??? El-P Fantastic Damage has some of the most amazing beats ever IMO. Did you hear his tracks on the new Mr. Lif album??? I guess he's just an aquired taste.
