Music producer mainly creating hip hop / trap / electronic / experimental music.
I'm most comfortable behind my keyboard midi controller. I track out simple progressions and melodies on both my midi controller and guitar. All that being said I'm not very good at actually playing any instrument. I have no training and play by ear. I'm mediocre at playing any instrument. Working on changing that. I do best in my DAW with my mouse/keyboard/and my wits.
Fruity Loops 11 Producer Edition
I just like the overall experience and lay out better than newer versions of FL.
Peavy 12 Track USB Mixer with built in Phantom Power
Yamaha Piano Midi Controller
And various other hardware loaned from friends that I experiment with until eventually returned.
Currently bumping study beats/chill hip hop mix youtube channels.

A culmination of my influences and my outer expression.
In my other life I am thinking about when I can get back to producing.
