Probably the number one question when it comes to making beats with FL Studio is - "Can I get professional results?"
And the answer is a resounding "YES!"
You have to understand that FL was never intended to be a newbie tool from the beginning so it doesn't exactly hold you hand through the process. You need to have some sort of an idea of what you want to accomplish before you begin. If you want professional results, then you have to think like a professional beat maker. There is no shortcut to this.
Before you get scared and think that FL is not for you, let me add that there are tons of videos on youtube and sites like Warbeats FL Studio Tutorials that will help tremendously. Before you know it you can be using techniques known to professionals in your own beat making.
Think of FL Studio as a tool. it will not make or break you. That is all on your level of commitment and talent and even more importantly, LUCK.
Yes, it's true that the most talented beat makers are not always the most famous or successful beat makers. Luck is about 70% of the equation. Putting in the work and investing the time (and in some cases money) will prepare you for the opportunities and generate some of that luck. Don't sell yourself short.
Like any dream, making beats for a living is one that requires some investment in time and effort to become a reality. Start today and that's one less day you have to invest later!
