Hm...Four or five year. But unfortunately due some other obligations I had a lot of pauses during that time period.
“Trance has become a dirty word, we need to return to the ethos of how this genre gained this tag in the beginning. History shows underground djs move the scene forward to I want to show clubland there’s a more serious and soulful side to trance"
depends where I start counting.
I started with Rebirth about 11 or 12 years ago. After a break of a two years I started in 2004? with fruity loops. Since 2 years I produce with Cubase.
I think my main goal is having fun, so almost everyday I produce I reach my goal

About a year and few months now
I could say "for years", but I don't produce that frequently, so my learning curve takes a lot of time. I only spent a few hours on producing in a whole month. Maybe even less.
2 years and a half i try to make 1-2 tunes each month and try to push my production skill a bit on each one trying new things.
I am giving away this melodic progressive house tune after a great summer, check it out!
I discovered Dance eJay around 2000-01. Recording silly vocals, pitching them up, and adding loops was tremendously fun.
I've used proper sequencers since 2004 (FL Studio 2004-05 -> Reason 2005-06 -> Ableton Live 2007-now).
I've been making music for a long time, but it's only the past few years I've realised how immensly important storytelling, visualising and ideas really are in the music creation process.
Also, it's not about how many years, as this article explains: http://www.fluentin3months.com/hours-not-years/ - In other words, it would be inaccurate to say that I've been making music for more than 10 years, when there are others who have put in the same effort in less than half the time.
since march 2003 with FL - switched in sumemr 2009 to ableton.
i also had piano lessons for 3 years.
well the daw never counts when your deep enough in the daw you can do practically the same like everybody else with an other daw. just your action counts there.
About 7 or 8 years. On an off though. I've only started producing frequently everyday about 2 years ago or so.
I have used FL Studio from day one, and will never change to something else.

Almost tres anos. Started with FL Studio and still there, not gonna change it soon. Still on version 9 because I like my block patterns also they messed up the zooming.
Back then I also tried Ableton, couldn't find piano roll.
