If that's the case... you have to copy and paste to new generators... MIDIout channels only work with a keyboard... me thinks.

But this opens to new options, and thus dling VSTis from KvR-VsT would be a solution....

Okay so open as much generator channels (generators include 3xOsc and VSTis and the handy-dandy sampler) now... copy and paste which ever you wanna play.... this can be fun cuz you can expected sounds going on...

does this help.

Why does it make no sound without a keyboard?

Because the keyboard takes all the duty in making and processing MIDI out... since MIDI out goes straight out... not through the Sound card wavetables or anything along that line.

Fruity Loops question here:

Is there a "pedal effect" in FL? I'm using the GrandPiano.wav sample, and the lower notes resonate beautifully, but higher notes seem more staccato. I'd like to lengthen these notes, preferably individually, since a global effect would make the lower tones last far too long. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Well no crap the higher notes seem staccato, you're pitching up one sample. Use mda Piano from www.pluginspot.com. That'll sound the same at all pitches.

OK, first I must apologize. This question may have been asked already but I'm too lazy to read the whole thread ~ :P

I can't get FL4 to make any noise when I import a MIDI file. The little VU meters light up, but I don't get any sound. I've fiddled with the various MIDI and output settings, but to no avail. MIDI works fine in WinAmp.

I'm using the demo version of FL4, if that makes any difference.

I could tell you how to route your soundcard's MIDI to Fruityloops, but I'm obviously too lazy to tell you that. So, instead, you can use the horrible sounding Fruity LSD plugin! Just drop it onto any FX channel and match up the ports of your MIDI channels and the LSD plugin and you'll hear MIDI. Generally when you import a midi file, the port of the channels are set to zero, so just set the LSD to port zero and you should hear stuffage. k? k.

you can also add an instrument to the pattern on the step sequencer (drag and drop), then right click on the button on the step seq. for the MIDI pattern you imported, got to edit, then copy (or cut), and the same on the desiered insturment except paste instead of copy.

I'm having trouble with my Fruity Slicer ... It refuses to slice speech synth samples. WAV files slice just fine, but not .speech files. What's going on?

Edit: Nevermind, I managed to figure it out. I was using underscores to separate syllables. Fruity Slicer recognises that as one word. So, it sliced the whole thing as one big sample. Problem solvered.

Okay... echo in music talk is called delay... just to let you know :wink:

why?

Because sound data is delayed through a 'fire-bucket' model crystal delay chip and fed back into the original signal...

Now about your fade out?

It's called automation.

How do you do it (or wanna do it for the exact piece...)?

1) Master volume.... (this one is bad because it fades out your delay too which isn't what you want) right click on the volume slider and it should have an Edit Events option (if it doesn't... you got FruityLoops 2.x or got a really crapallicious ripped version of Fruity.)

2) Piano Volume..... (this is probably best) same method as before except on the piano volume knob.

Questions on how to control the automation?

Thx alot Xelebes, but i have a even more noobish question.

Everytime i try to save my work i get a warning that says:

Some of the Fruityloops plugins used for this project are limited demo versions. They will be deleted before saving the file. Continue saving?

Should i download other plugins or what?

thx for helping me.

I loaded a midi file and i tried to add some kicks to it but the kicks were to slow and it sounded terrible! The song and the kicks didnt have the same tempo.

How do i change the kicks tempo without changing the songs tempo, and how do i know what tempo its gonna be?

Thx !

heh, i had that problem....often still do.

now i've got an even more annoying problem. When I go to export a song into MP3, it will crap out on me, around 10%. I was gonna export one of the demo songs, XOR-AMZ or something like that, because my computer sucks (doesn't have enough power to listen to it through FL).

anyone know why FL would just close 10% through an export into MP3? It has done this a couple times (every time I've exported into MP3 actually) which isn't often, because it takes me about 30 minutes to do one song. And if I even look at the monitor wrong, it will mess up....

I'll end up actually buying FL, but until I do, it would be kinda nice to have a functional version. speaking of version, mine is 3
