I recently got FL 8 XXL about four days ago, and I'm now set with all the VSTs I could ever need along with basic knowledge of the piano roll, playlist, auto' clips, mixing, filters, controllers, etc. So I'm posting to ask you all for advice on how to really start getting in to composing some of my own songs (not just lame patterns).

I already have a few years of piano lessons behind me, so I know some theory, which chords work together-yattayatta... If anyone reading this with knowledge on the subject could post links reguarding: tutorials, beginner project files, or sites, that would be excellent! I'm into composing trance, house, and electronica usually based on hard rock beats, such as Junkie XL, Egg, and Daft punk do.

Thanks for any advice/guidance in advance!
