Hello from Michigan.
I used to lurk this forum years ago, then switched to using reddit.
However it seems like reddit doesn't really have any good subs for IDM/Techno/Ambient type production.
Anyway, I've been making music on my PC as a hobby for about 10 years, never seriously.
Started on FL Studio (which I still love btw) but now I'm on Ableton.
Influences include Aphex Twin, BoC, Brian Eno, Classic Techno/House, old New Age labels(Windham Hill/Narada), and shoegaze
Looking forward to learning a bit more about production here and giving any advice when I can
