Ovy in the Studio
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
ENGLISH: When I went to my cousin’s house that day, one of his friends showed me FL Studio for the first time in my life. At that time I didn’t even know how to write a melody or what a plugin was, and at that moment, my life changed. FL Studio was like entering a new world and galaxy. From then on it became my temple — the place where I disconnect from everything else and create my music, sounds, and art.
