    I started making beats at 5 years old, with my Yamaha Portsound Synthesizer. It had a built in drum machine. I am now 36 years old.

    Started with Fl Studio when I was 20. Got some equipment and made beats for about a year then life hit. Had a kid, sold the equipment, got married. Im 35 now, I got the urge to get back into it last year when my friend sold me his mpc cause he couldnt figure it out. Here I am.

    WOW! You were pretty much born to be a musician. With 30 years in, I must hear some of your work :)

    21 now 23 in June. So not a long time ago. :) I still learn how to make better mixes because I have relatively little experience with music production in comparison to overall experience with music as I've been playing the guitar for 11 years now. :)

    I started back around 2005 or 2006 I was 18 and just been messing with “Fruity loops” at the time. Not really figuring out the basics of it till later on, but there was a long period where I stopped making beats then got back into it. Long story short here I am now at 31 trying to do this
