Robarth, intrigued to know what software (DAW, samplers, plugins and other stuff) you are using and how far you have got.
I remember being in that boat, in the late 90s and using a Windows 98 program called Data Becker Studio before switching to Fruity Loops/FL Studio and it took me three days to get a bloody sound out of it ! I didn’t know anyone who could help me and I didn’t get the internet for another twelve years.
To this day, I don’t know much about music but I still look forward to what can emerge out of a session on the old pc. Whether, it is something short and sweet that took me hours to perfect or something I knocked off in 10 minutes and could never get close to again without the saved project.
I hope your hobby brings you many years of satisfaction.
