    Ah, good old Music 2000. Shame I can't us it any more because it throws a CODEC MISSING-wobbler everytime I try to run it.

    On a serious note mate, if you really want to get started making tunes, get a DAW and crack on learning it. Like jimjimjim said, you need to ask specific questions or otherwise, no-one will be able to help you get better. Asking 'How do I be like Netsky?' is almost like asking 'How do I do wicked sick mega 3D graffiti?' Or 'How do I get a six pack in 10 minutes?' You're only gonna learn by yourself with years of practise and perceverence.

    First off, I recommend you check out this:
    http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php/1...ed-DAWs-inside

    Pic a DAW and get to know it. You're on a PC so an easy one to get to know is FL Studio. A little higher up the range would be Reason, Cubase or Ableton Live. I don't know Cubase but I know its very powerful. Ableton is also very good at a lot of things. Not my personal preference but I know that a lot of my friends use it and live by it. Got some seeeeeeriously powerful shit in there. Reason, although I haven't actually played with R6 yet, is seriously good at some things but falls on a few hurdles. You cant use VST's for instance. I used it for years and have found myself coming back from Logic to use some of the instruments and compressors in the Reason rack because I prefer their sound. Each to their own though. Just a few pointers.

    (Also, while I think about it, if you are on Reason, you can follow a guy called 'BoyinaBand' on YouTube. Some really good tutuorials all the way through from compression and EQ to making UK Garage and Drum and Bass. He's here: http://www.youtube.com/user/wwwboyinabandcom. There is also another guy that focus' on DnB using Reason. Some of his stuff is dark as hell but he's a very good producer. I learnt quite a bit from him when I was starting out: http://www.youtube.com/user/loki1200)

    Learn how to make beats to start with. Simple drum patterns and things to then layering samples.
    Samples can be found here:
    http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php/2...-Change-Thread

    Also, there are shit loads of free samples packs for one hit drum samples. A lot of DAWs come with samples themselves anyway. Just have a look. The WorldWideWeb is your Oyster!

    When you've learnt how to use a piano roll and change your instruments and make drums and stuff you need to next, learn how to EQ and compress. Compression is possibly one of the hardest things to learn in terms of mixing and engineering so really look into it. Play with a compressor along side reading about it to understand what it does. These are your 2 most basic mixing tools. You don't know how to use these, you ain't gonna have any good tunes, let alone giving Nestky a run for his money.

    A couple of tutorials for these are here:

    I know this is for Logic but its a very good tutiorial:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-CoFUvj9Q0

    Again, for Logic, but it'll help you get the idea:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HjYskicZRw

    I would go on but I'm tired and need a piss. That should get you started though.

    Mo fire

    Check out YouTube and search the forum and internet for answers. I highly doubt many people on here had a teacher to show them the way, many of us have just picked up the knowledge throughout our progression.

    Quite honestly, I think just sitting around and fiddling with your DAW is the best learning experience - especially if you are just becoming familiar with how things interact one another and how sounds can change when effected certain ways.
    It'd be sick if you checked any of the links above

    Re: Searching for a teacher.

    I offer half price tuition to producers from Holland.
    I learnt from Rob Playford who co wrote the Production Wizard VOL 2 with Tiesto.

    I have helped Noisia & Spor create basslines as I have shown them my infamous resample technique. If you require tuition please do not hesitate to contact my agent via PM.
    He's a member on here actually, search Danwell.
    I offer an additional discount to forum members who have access to the Q bay so start posting!



    Thanks,
    Dr Sam Rogers
