I've been using fl studio for about 3 years and I have yet to produce anything without that "corny" feel to it. Any suggestions on how to get more clean and pro sounds out of it? Or is it just a dumb toy?
I myself still use fruity loops too because I started with it and I just know my way around in it. But I also found out that you need some good eqing/compressing effects to crank up the quality of your sound. After you get those I think you can make a quality tune with almost every program. Just for you then to find the right beats/basslines!
Learn to correctly eq, compressed, and add warmth to your songs. Under no circumstance may you use the sounds that came with fruity loops. Get some new samples. Purchase some good vsts. Be innovative. Think about what parts of the songs you've made make them "sound corny" and then do shit different the next time. Keep trying.
