That pretty good!  It sounds very "Ninja-Tune"-ish, like Amon Tobin. Your production quality is great. I think I read before that you use Fruity Loops? Do you master it outside of FL?  What about a keyboard/controller? (I'm always curious as to how people create their electronic music).

I like it.

I do some mastering with T-Racks24, just to get the album the unite-feeling. Haven't used any midi-keyboards or controllers with these tracks, although I have a basic cheap midi-keyboard lying around here. And yeah, I made basically everything with FL Studio.

Thank you both for downloading the album, and for the positive comments! (well mostly Stookie since he's already actually listened to the album ;)

T-Racks is what everyone keeps telling me, but it's so expensive! But from what I've heard, it seems worth it.
The people I know who use it says it's night and day difference on the quality of their tracks.

Well with the new multiband compressor in FL Studio6, I'd say the need for an external mastering tool isn't so high anymore. (although some professional mastering tools are surely a different thing)

Cool. I've been using version 4 for a while and haven't upgraded because of how well it's worked for me, but maybe I will...
