FRUITY LOOPS 101 - PLEASE direct -ALL- FL questions here

Recommended Posts

I had that problem too... it changes to Nineteen, right? That was so annoying for a while. I ended up just copying the plugin from the old version (glad I kept it) and overwriting it into Studio. If you have an old version, this should work. If you dont, then I don't really know what to tell you...

Maybe someone should inform the FL team, and tell them to fix it immediately.

Oh my. Before someone else gets around to ridiculing you, I'll try and help. After you've imported the MIDI into one pattern on the playlist, choose another, empty pattern.

Add your kick sample of choice to the step sequencer. Then, on the step sequencer, add a kick every 4 spaces. I'm assuming your song is in 4/4 time (the default setting). Now you have a kick pattern.

If your sample is a loop of kicks, as opposed to a oneshot kick, you have the option of a) changing the pitch of the loop to slow it down/speed it up or B) use a wave editor to isolate one kick in the loop and save it as a seperate sample.

Once you've completed this DEAFENINGLY BASIC pattern, you can add it to the playlist, along with the pattern that holds the imported MIDI.

This explanation was a waste of my time. I feel horrible for posting it.

Yea, it was a waste of your time because it didnt help me at all but thanks for trying to help me and this time ill try to explain better :o

The midi file i work with have a faster tempo than what fruity loops have. The metronome has a slower tempo than the midi song, so if i add drums it wont have the right tempo for the midi. But other songs ive worked with had the same tempo as the metronome and i can add drums without any tempo problems.

Here are the songs im talking about:

http://www.zophar.net/gym/gaxe2.rar

They are in .gym format. Number 3 is a song that DOESNT have the same tempo as the metronome in fruity loops, but number 4 got the exact tempo and you can add drums without any problems at all(thats how i want all of my midi songs to be).

So is there anyway to get the same tempo as the midi song for the metronome(like in song number 4)?

I would be really happy if you guys could help me with this and thanks alot ! :lol:

P.S. I used a singlekick(packs/extras/c_kick), not a sample with loops of kicks!

How can I add reverb to a track in Fruity Loops?

Simple! Use the Fruity effects!

Click on the channel you want reverb on.

See the LCD number in the top right? Move that up to 2 (you can move it up to 16, 1 is the default FX channel)

Double click that number, which will bring you to the effects window. You can also get there by clicking the "FX" button on that toolbar at the top with the 5 large buttons.

Anyways, when at FX channel 2, apply reverb by clicking on the arrow next to an empty slot. Look for "Fruity Reverb" in that list... I think you can figure out the rest. btw the first channel in the effects window is "M" for Master, which means it applies to all instruments

Hope I helped.

okay despite my mass confusion using fruity loops, I'll try to ask this question and have it try to remotley similar to something that makes sense, here it goes...

okay, I've been working on about 2 mixes for a little while now, but I have a problem. I dont want to use the actual song, because I've noticed most remixe's on this sight dont, they are re-done on diffrent instruments and such...now my question is...how do I do that? Do I have to figure each and every note out? Do I have to use another program? or what? I really dont want my first official remix to be something many will say they could have done in five minutes, so please, help me out...

Record it live or through Midi.... make it sound like you heard it and want to recreate it but you have a big thing for a certain genre and you wanna make every melody to that style. I dunno... that's how you'd go about it.... then you shift to another style.... always shift....

Be the vagabond, the planete, the jack-of-all-trades...

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.

...

Nevermind. Solved it.

Hey, I have this problem! That's what I get for buying FL full.

SOUNDFONT HELP NEEDED PLEASE.

Edited: OK, I got the soundfont working after searching past pages. I still need a bit of help though.

The way the soundfont (being a drum kit) loads, I have to use it all in the Piano Roll. Is there any way I can get a separate drum-like channel for each instrument?

so what your saying is I have ot re-record the actual mp3 itself into midi format? How? Do I use FL or another program? And how do I like put notes in?

Also how do you stop something from repeating several times?

And how do you get it so it will automatically shift to different beats and stuff?

And one more thing, where the ^%& do I change the tempo?

A10: Fear my mad quoting skillz:

I have a question: How can I change tempo in the middle of a song?

Okay, pick a pattern you want it to start on, and right click the tempo once the pattern is high-lighted... then click Edit Events, and it's kinda straight forward from here (* the upper left area would of the whole screen helps a lot, it tells % and stuff)

you can just repeat that with any knob in FL

enjoy :)

Thanks to ResdntEvilFreak who helped me out with that 5 pages back. ^_^

Not only am a stupid nooB, I'm a stupid pirating nooB. I just d-loaded fruity loops off of Kazaa, and I can't figure out what port my Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth thingamawhatsit is supposed to be set on. And without knowing that, I'm pretty sure I can't play midi in fruity loops. Any ideas people?
