I know, when projects get complicated it's a pain in the ass to navigate through them if they aren't properly organized. I'm moving in that direction, almost there.

3/20/13 Step responds:

It's not too hard! Every time you add a new instrument, right-click on it, click Rename / colour and give it its own unique name and colour. I like to group instruments in certain sections and give them their own colours, like brass = red, strings = brown, woodwinds = blue, percussion = green, choir = pink, bass = purple, etc... and then I vary the shade of the colour depending on the size of the instrument. I even choose an icon for each instrument which can be done in the right-click context menu as well!

After that, do the same thing for them in the playlist, then go to the channel settings of each instrument, hit Ctrl + L and it makes a new mixer channel for the instrument, automatically transferring the colour and the icon you gave to the channel.

It may be a bit annoying at first but you get used to it, and the end result is awesome. At least if you're an OCD maniac like me it is :3.

Thanks for adding me to your favourites list! I actually use FL Studio too, I'm just so used to it I know I'm going to hate anything else. I see people complain about your style of work... well, they should've seen my projects. Chaotic, illogical stuff only I can comprehend and work with :D yeah, I'm such a lamer...

3/19/13 Step responds:

Man, your music is great. I'll add you on my favourites list five times over if I could.

Yeah I love FL Studio and proudly stand up for it when people bash it down because of its bad reputation for being the "beginner" DAW :P.

I used to have really disorganised project files, with patterns scattered everywhere in the playlist. Can't stand that anymore haha.

Awesome, thank you! Looks like almost all 23 citizens of Malta are avid fans now.

3/10/13 Step responds:

OK but in all seriousness I have NO idea why you're getting most of your exposure from Malta o.o.

Maybe it's because I'm SO DAMN POPULAR here that people don't only listen to my music but check out all my favourite artists too.

One can dream...

that's like 400 listens so far this year

...I kinda ran out in the streets all over Malta screaming your username and holding a banner with a link to your SoundCloud account.

Um... uh... well...

How do I put this...


Looks like we've got a trouble maker over here. Get at him, mods

BETRAYED BY MY OWN KIND.


calm down

3/6/13 Step responds:

YOU'RE TELLING ME TO CALM DOWN? YOU? TELLING ME?

I'M CALM. OF COURSE I'M CALM.


2 notes at a time? Give me a break. Your lack of skill is pathetic

3/5/13 Step responds:

Says the guy who said my pieces were too complex a few months ago :3.


I don't use fruits because they are too mainstream! Beside the joke, I'm going to review your song and decide whether I should fave you or not.

Spelling my provocative name is not easy, I see.

3/5/13 Step responds:

Hipsturr.

Thanks for that review ^____^.


HEY BUOY! HEY ELITSTINEN! FRUIT IS DELICIOUS AND GOOD.

3/5/13 Step responds:

YEAH. YOU TELL 'EM.

ELITISTINEN*.

YEAH.


I have no idea why Elitistinen and Buoy hate fruit. It's a perfectly healthy part of a diet and REALLY DELICIOUS.

3/5/13 Step responds:

TELL THEM, SKYE :(.

You work so fast... I can't keep track of it :3
The song is pretty... cool :)

3/5/13 Step responds:

Me? Work fast? Some people tell me I work slowly haha. It took me over 6 hours to make that song and I consider that little :P.

Glad you like it though Asandir!

I agree with Elitistinen. FL Studio is icky! I don't want cooties.

3/5/13 Step responds:

Oh don't be so immature.


Ew, FL Studio.

EW YOUR MOM :((((.
