    Lol, no worries dude. You technically gave me two or three followers since you and your friends share an account, right? And I figure there's something to learn from everyone! Now get making some tracks! :D

    Ok.

    So, I got some another person into making electronic music and of course they aren't the best at it yet and use pre-made loops and such, but he does play the drums. After most my best friends became beginners in musicianship, I wanted to do alot of stuff together. Then, I realized I was the only one who was doing music and Chris really wasn't. We had ideas, but we never put them into action. So, this sounds odd, but I made Coin Toss a project instead of a band, and I started doing things solo. Now the Coin Toss Project is pretty much the superband of my 4 friends and me. Everything we release together goes there. It is pretty ridiculous, but I can finally go my own way and do other things. Weird, huh?

    Ah well, maybe you're better than you think. Even if you're not, you'll manage with your other musical abilities :)

    Wow, that's.. funny, kinda, I suppose :P I'm quite wary of pirating things in general, but I wasn't even aware you could do that with software, haha.

    I sometimes put out previews, but usually I have a track pretty much finished by the time I release previews, which defeats the point a bit. Other times I release previews that go down brilliantly, though I never end up finishing it, for some stupid reason XD

    Sure, fire away! :)

    Yeah. My parents think I should sing good because my dad is a singer and my mom is pretty good. I think I just got the bad genes. lol

    Chris always torrents and hacks stuff. Him and his brother that is. One time, he told me a story of how him and his bro downloaded the Ghost hack that cuts television power out. He went to karaoke and when the first person went up he cut the power. Off-topic completely, but funny. :DDD

    And yeah feedback is great. I always make sure to put out previews to make sure everything is good.

    And I have some more great big news if you wanna hear.

    I'm... okay at singing (that's stretching it, a lot). I've only tried it for one track, so with the right edits made I could probably make myself sound all right, but I've yet to REALLY try it :P

    Oh sweet lord, he didn't buy it, he torrented it, I believe. Which I know is piracy and all, but you're right- it's about 600 bucks or something similarly expensive. Too expensive, really. My theory is, it's kinda okay to torrent that sorta software, if you can make that money back by making amazing music, and becoming famous and shizz. THEN you buy it, and everyone's happy :P

    Yeah, I love getting feedback, even if it's only to tell me "This isn't good, here's why...". As long as criticism is constructive, it's good :) And then it's nice to just get complimented too, lol :P

    Yeah same here. I can't sing, but I can write good lyrics sometimes. I can't ever hit those high notes!

    It is cool to do get others into it the music biz. But, your friend bought Ableton and doesn't do anything, that is crazy. :O
    Isn't Ableton like 600 bucks?

    And thanks for the feed. It is always good to hear that music is succeeding! :DDD

    Oh, it's quite different to the Soundcloud tap thing (in that it's significantly more consistant/accurate). :)
    That's pretty cool. A friend of MINE should be producing, but he's just too lazy. He's got Ableton and knows how to do some things but he hasn't done ANYTHING. I'm eventually going to do a collab track with him to get him into it, haha.
    That song is pretty cool! I like the genre (Wonky), haha :P I could definitely hear someone rapping over it! That's one problem with producing- I write lyrics for almost all of my songs, but I don't like singing for them (even with Autotune), so I have to wait and try to find someone willing to do vocals for free, haha.

    Yeah I do that sometimes. I tried tapping on soundcloud once and got terrible results... thats why I downloaded the WiiMetonome on my homebrew. :P

    Anyway, I just got a friend into the music biz and he made a few tracks and got 3 followers (including me). Awesome to see new people get into it. I also wanted to show you this. Tell me if you like. :DDD

    Well, that's actually a perfectly valid way to do it too, but it probably wouldn't hurt to use the Tap method just to be sure. You just right-click the tempo box (that's usually set to 130 or 140 BPM by default). Select Tap, and then.. click on the tap icon to tap out the tempo. :)
    Sometimes songs are a bit... uncooperative, and have weird tempos like 129.3462. At least, that seems to happen, sometimes. :P If it seems to alternate between two tempos that are right next to each other (like 124/125 and so on), chances are it's somewhere in between :P
