i agree whole heartedly.

I've seen so many good ideas and riffs by friends and other people on the net that had the potential to be amazing with just bit more time.

Thats where the practices / learning comes in.

I do what i did on guitar, i practice other peoples songs, not sure if anyone else does this, but i like to sit down and copy tracks and apply what i learnt from that to my own.

I find different genres of music apply alot more knowledge of different bits of equipment, i.e you'll learn alot about compressors and sampling by listening / practicing french house.

I listen to alot of fidget to see what they do on synthesizers.

its very rewarding and you will normally find out ways how to make things your own rather than jumping in the deep in and going "why the hell am i so bad", not sayng copy tracks, but learn. there is a barrier from just listening.

(going longer here) i find it very very easy to get discouraged making this type of music compared to an instrument based environment, because it is so very hard to jam and get the ideas in your head out on the computer, and i'll say it, its not because you suck, its because you suck at the computer.

It's all about the rythmn.
I'll show you using fruityloops the way that these techno producers do it up.

Sorry, all i can help with is that the synth sound is heavily relying on the rythmn to make it sound the way it does.

take a sample of any sawtooth synth being pitch modulated and put it into a sampler. cut different parts of the sample into 16ths or whatever you feel like. and write the rhythm in midi.

sorry i'm a bit slow.

I actually googled "sawtooth synth being pitch modulated"

and i didn't come up with any good sounds

i just wanna be able to do the synth's at the drop from songs like "let the bass kick" and "moombah (afrojack remix)"

alright well start a new sound make osc1 like a saw at 0.00 then osc2 the same thing but at -12.00 then osc3 same thing but at -24.00. then go to ur lfo, change it from a sine to a saw then hit the sync button make it like 1 over 4 or 1 over 8 watever u like. then drag the lfo to each osc and make it modulate each one by -12.00. then like luke swits was saying u can put some notes down or just one long one save it as a sample chop it up then write a rhythm
