    Fl studio

    I don't see a reason why it would and it's the first I've heard of it. FL also has a VST plugin if you want to use it in another DAW. Also curious why you want to use Cubase with FL? Rewire was mostly a workaround for the limitations of programs like Reason, for modern DAWs it seems to me that they're all capable enough where using them simultaneously isn't that worthwhile.

    20 years actually, you see it's not as bad as you think!

    Ozone 8

    IMO not really. Disclaimer that I don't have Ozone but 1. Some of the stock plugins in FL are perfectly capable, PEQ2 and Maximus or the Fruity Multiband Compressor are solid 2. Doing a ton of processing on the master is far less of a necessity in a modern DAW where you have the whole project to work with and can change things on a per track level right up until completion. If you aren't summing everything into one wav and working on that in the end then in most cases a simple multiband compressor and limiter are going to be adequate. Ozone does have more bells and whistles than the aforementioned stock plugins but I'm not convinced they actually matter that much anymore 3. The best investment for mixing and mastering is your listening equipment. If you don't already have them, getting some really good headphones or studio monitors is going to make more of a difference than any plugins Ozone might offer some convenience and capability advantages but if you aren't a professional with no need to be judicious in spending I don't think it's $250 or $500 worth of advantage, there are other things you could spend the money on that will have more of an immediate impact both in terms of mastering and augmenting FL's weak spots.

    Soundfont issues/questions

    Genesis used FM synthesis rather than samples, there is VOPM though http://truechiptilldeath.com/blog/2010/05/04/opm-patches-out-of-most-genesis-games/

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I was just kidding, something strong flinging you way up in the air is in all kinds of games, but Skyrim did it the funniest. That's kind of the time we live in with all media, nothing is truly new but now you can take the best of everything that's come before and refine it and use it in different contexts. Big open world can also be traced back to the original Legend of Zelda I think some of the incorporation of open world RPG elements is that realization that some of these games are very much like a modernized LoZ, where the Zelda series itself took a bit of a different turn after LTTP.

  9. 1. Study the compositions. Transcribe it yourself if there's no sheet music or MIDI or whatever /howdoimakeliterallyanything 2. Play piano for hours a day for years. From the way you're going about this I'm going to assume that you are pretty young, you still have a lot of neuroplasticity and that makes it far easier for you to develop general skills like playing instruments and transcription now than it will be later in life. Work on skills rather than "what do I need to download for this?", you'll be glad you did in 10 or 20 years.

    Is Absynth 5 worth getting?

    If Komplete is out of your price range then Absynth isn't really something to consider either, great synthesizer but $200 isn't trivial when $500 is completely out of the question. Komplete is a good deal and you'll wind up spending more in the long run on small purchases anyway. I think NI does some kind of discount if you have an included product like Massive too, you could look into that
  11. I got Komplete recently myself and also have 8 gigs of RAM(I have a better processor though). I've had no issues with memory but I haven't pushed it with a massive amount of Kontakt libraries yet. For CPU usage it varies, some of the Reaktor stuff especially doesn't seem super efficient but then other things are in the expected CPU range. Some of the synthesizers like Massive, FM8, and Absynth are quite old and they don't move my CPU meter too far...maybe not stock instrument level but much more efficient than more recent third party stuff like Serum or Bazille. Can't comment on Omnisphere, just my experience so far with Komplete. CPU is probably more of a concerning factor with Komplete than RAM seeing as Kontakt does direct from disk streaming and there's probably plenty of content available for it that isn't a gigabyte plus for every instrument. At least at 8 gigabytes I think CPU would be more of a factor, but again this is more or less my first impressions

    Guitar settings in FL Studio?

    There's the recorded livestream of him playing with it too, Zircon is godlike at EDM production in general so his streams and tutorials are worth watching if this stuff interests you. And Seamless has been mentioned a few times in here, pretty much the go to resource for "how to dubstep in frooty loops" That said I don't think dropping $189 on a synthesizer OP will barely use before giving it up is wise. As a noob you might as well just use Sytrus(bundled with FL producer) until you've confirmed that you'll be doing this for a long time. The filters sound like the early 2000s software that they are but it's still a very capable FM/RM synth that can do a lot of nasty modern EDM basses or most synthesizer sounds in general. Using what you have for a few years and then looking into the cutting edge stuff like Serum or Harmor would be the way to go IMO, you'll need more knowledge and experience to really leverage the power of higher end tools anyway

    Guitar settings in FL Studio?

    You could take that a step further and turn all these farts into a wavetable for Serum and have TRANSFORMERS FARTING. If you wanna make good dubstep you need next level sound design bro
  14. Maybe I'm misinterpreting your problem but, unless you're rendering to 32 bit wav and distributing that you're going to have to get it under 0db eventually anyway. That's the loudness limit with 16 bit audio, you go over 0db it will clip(distort)

    Learn the basics of synthesis and spend a lot of time playing with synthesizers rather than trying to learn "how to make dubstep". You could just buy some preset packs to get that general aesthetic but it won't be as personal and lacking the knowledge of how the stuff works you won't be able to tweak a sound to make it work in a particular track or to personal taste. That and as a newb your production skills and engineering aren't as developed which is equally important, and having a more general knowledge of how this all works makes you more versatile
