    Really, I can't believe I just read this:

    "How to get in the vibe and stay focused?

    For a while now i have trouble just staying on task and just making music. I think i need some new fl studio 11 skins or something because everything feels the same every time."

    everyone gets stuck from time to time.

    listen to music you don't usually listen to other music you wouldnt normally listen to

    explore new ground...something will eventually capture your attention and give you ideas.

    work with other people....i started a collab with a forum regular literally yesterday and everything's coming together very nicely, after being stuck with some nice drums i couldn't do anything with for about 2 weeks. It's really good playing of each others ideas

    armed, I really appreciate your respectful answer, I really do. But this was the post from someone on other forum I use, and I was really reading this and thinking on how can a change in the way his DAW looks improve his inspiration. It seemed pretty stupid to me, as everything you said really works on overcoming the infamous writer's block, but not a change of how the program looks.

    reason i didnt want to use FL is because it looks horrible, even when you are used to something appearance is still very important

    edit: I mean creativity or whatever is a delicate thing...looking at an ugly screen can easily inhibit it

    ah i see, well that does seem a little silly....i know full well fruity looks like shit, but i still enjoy using it....i don't think a changing the colour of the windows is gonna make any difference.

    maybe he should try some mood lighting....or a bonsai tree...bonsai trees are good for vibes. all zen and shit.

    Come at shit from a different angle. Switch FL for Logic or Ableton. Become a scientologist. play everything through old popped speakers with everything set to distortion. Grow a moustache. Wear a kilt. Drink more umbongo. Get a pet rabbit. Renounce scientology. Eat the rabbit. Shave the kilt and swap the moustache for a pair of dungarees. Visit your soul with a warm cup of ayahuasca.

    Take control. Fight the man in the mirror.

    Search for new horizons, new samples, new drumkits, new sounds in general.

    Relax, do what you wanna do, and if you don't wanna do things that "people try to press you for do that things", keep far away from that people and be yourself, focus on your way, in do the right thing on the right side of your road.

    =)
