Really easy to follow and understand. I have the fundamentals of FL Studio in place now. This is definitely for the beginner. But also for the person looking to move to the advanced level, but who still doesn't have a full grasp of the basics of FL Studio.

No blabla in this excellent tutorial, it goes straight to the point.
Really loved to see Andrew coming back with some videos on the newer 12 version.
And yes, thanks for proving that FL Studio is not only meant for dancefloor stuff !

Was hoping on an FL Studio tutorial ever since I signed up & here it is! As much as I love Mac, Windows based FL Studio has been a great program in my arsenal for years. Great to learn more about it!
