|Does anyone use fruity loops? I have no skill with this I dabbled years ago on and off but never really managed to create something. Would love to mess around with music just to listen to in the car and as something to do when I am bored. Like I just don't get where all the samples come from etc?|

Is stefannsen still on here? I bet he'd be great at it.
What music software have you managed to make music in?
@Technoishmatt Complete beginner dude. I used to just add drums, kicks etc and mix them around. Never actually made a full track.
I never used Fruity Loops - samples are not my thing. I had school friends that used it. I just didn't like the sound.
I think I've said this before, but I really recommend trying Figure, especially for a beginner - but not only. It's free and on iOS and PC.
I used to spend loads of time, first in Cakewalk, then ReBirth, and then Reason, making electronic tracks - just for personal use. I don't have the time really for that any more - but enjoy messing about on my ipad or phone when commuting / travelling in Figure.
You can only do short loops in there, but it is fun enough, and I also listen to them for fun.
Here is a selection of my personal favourites:

Wow Fruity Loops I remember that from when I was a teenager with a dial up modem. Times flies in the end.
Technoishmatt has listed the main software I remember from back in the day. I think you can download sample packs online, have a google for whatever you are looking for.
