Tell us about yourself
I am Afrojack, Nick van de Wall, I make music and sound and most people know me from my club-tracks, others from ‘Take Over Control’ and some other others from some parties here and there I think.

How did you get involved creating music & FL Studio?
I started using it when i was about 11 years old, just for fun, making remixes and mixing records through each other just for fun, FL studio felt really easy and obvious, and I never stopped using it (ed: 12 years so far).

Tell us about your production environment & toys?
Right now my production environment is mostly my laptop and Beyerdynamic DT pro 880 headphones but in my studio i have a Virus TI, Moog Lil Phatty, Korg kaosillator, Yamaha Motif rack XS, and even though I’m ripping sounds from here non stop, my synths mainly come out the Sylenth1 VST.

Do you have any links you would like to share?
…and I have one more thing I’d like to say, all my tracks are 100% FL studio, mostly even with fruity compressors and equalizers used, the only things that are on my master channel is an izotope ozone and sometimes a waves L3 multimaximizer (sometimes).
So don’t let people tell you that Logic or other programs are ‘superior’, its just practice practice and experience!
