Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.

I got into music in around the year 2000 — I started by playing the keyboard in school. Also, my dad is an opera singer, so I was raised in a house full of classical music and harmony all the time 🙂

How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?

An old school friend of mine was making beats and they were sounding more professional than what I was usually hearing back in those days, so I asked him to reveal his secret to me. He told me that he was using Fruity Loops 2 I think that time, and from there, I started my journey with FL Studio.

Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.

I have worked with many famous Arab artists like Hamza Namira, Tamer Hosny, and others, as well as international stars like Snoop Dogg and Shaggy.

Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.

I am using a Pro Tools HD Native soundcard and UAD Octa for some plugins. I also use many hardware preamps and dynamics, as well as some sound modules like the Moog Slim Phatty, Access Virus, Roland Fantom XR (Rack), Roland Integra 7, Roland Fantom (Latest Keyboard). For studio monitors, I depend on the Adam A77X with the PreSonus central station.

What is your top FL Studio tip for up-and-coming producers?

FL Studio is the best starting point for any producer because it’s very fast and reliable. My advice for newer producers is to not waste your time watching tutorials all day because the trial and error method will let you remember every tiny detail versus just studying it. Just search for the things you need to learn how to do. I think FL Studio is a straightforward DAW and you won’t need to search too much. Just start creating music rather than wasting time searching for how-to’s.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us?

Thank you so much for this opportunity — I am so glad to be one of the chosen artists in your respected community.
