The DAW will become second nature to you when you’re comfortable with it and I find myself opening up my DAW as soon as I turn my computer on even if I don’t need it straight away. The most important part of choosing a DAW basically comes down to your computer, Fl Studio recommends at least 4GB of RAM but I have run it on computers with only 1GB of RAM before. Although you won't be able to create a 20 channel track you will be able to get to grips with it and decide whether you want to invest or not with your standard computer. I know there is a lot more to think about other than ram but we are not focussing on computer specs here.
OK let's say you've chosen your DAW Fl Studio, how do you set it up? Well to save time there will be a video on our YouTube showing you how to set it up.
Once you have your DAW you will understandably be itching to get right down to creating that first masterpiece but first we need to talk about a few things you may need. Now I know most people won't want to go spending loads of money on equipment as they just start but it's at this point you need to think about how serious you want to take producing, do you want to earn a living off your creations or is it a hobby? There is no wrong answer by the way most well know producers started there career with absolutely no interest in making money from there music just keep that in mind. However if you would like to purchase some equipment I advise you do it now and get used to using the equipment as you learn the DAW, that may sound like a challenge learning both at the same time but it will make the process a lot easier when you get to grips with your DAW.
