My soundfont player broke. . .!

It was working fine when I first got it set up, now it refuses to play any sound. I don't know what went wrong. . .any ideas?

I did go back and follow the little tutorial on page 23, and it still doesn't work. Odd. . .

This may be explained somewhere in this topic, but I have trouble reading past page 20. I looked in the help file, and I'm still not sure I understand, but I need to know how to permanently adjust the volume of an instrument. I will adjust it before the song starts, and it will go back to the way it was as soon as the music starts. If I adjust it in mid-music, the volume goes down for that time around, but next time I play the music its back up. What do I do to fix this? Also, I downloaded some soundfonts from thesoundsite.net, but they are all sfpack files, and Fruity loops does not seem to read them. Please help!

right click the volume knob and select edit events. Set it to the volume you want it to start at.

If you change the volume this way in the middle of the song but not at the beginning, it will play at whatever volume it stops at when it plays again, this is why you edit the volume in the beginning.

Moridin: You need to decompress the sfpack file to use the soundfont. There should be information somewhere on the website on how to do this (I'm not sure how to go about it myself since I'm used to using sfArk).

Paragon: Would it be possible to provide an FLP file? On some soundfonts, not every note will play on a given patch, if that helps.

A10WaveRacer: Automation will change BPM at different sections. Select the button next to the stop key, so that it becomes brighter, or press R on your keyboard. Now, go to the section in which you want to change the BPM on the playlist. Select a blank pattern. Press play. You should hear some metronome clicks, then the song will play. Change the BPM at any point. Press stop. A new part will have appeared on the pattern you selected. At that point on the playlist, the BPM will change. Ta-da!

Is there anyway to make a midi file into a .wav or .mp3 file?

I really need to add some effects to a midi file i got but you cant, so i though maybe u can make it into a .wav file and then add effects!

Well, since this is the FRUITYLOOPS THREAD, just import the MIDI data into FL, drop samples on each channel, and then do your effects that way.

Is there any way to automate VSTi controls that aren't specifically automatable? I really want to use Pentagon and Triangle II to their fullest, but not being able to tweak parameters live is bugging me.

Well go to the VSTi, and do you see the little plug thing at the top left? click that, go down to edit event> and there's a shitload of events you can control with Triangle II.

Hmm...I said Triangle II and Pentagon when what I really meant was Pro-53 and possibly Absynth (have to re-install that one). :P

My biggest problem is that the mod and pitch wheels are useless to me due to the lack of automation/live recording.

I believe it works the same with most VSTi/DXi. Very few I've tried were not automatable (is that a word?) A lot of the cheap ones will have a big list like "Button 001, button 002" etc. Let's see, I'll check, since I (sorta) have both of the VSTi you mention.

Pro-52 (I don't have pro-53) has clearly marked automation. you can record pitch shift and modulation here.

Absynth is also event editor compatible.

So you're pretty much set.

Forgive my ignorance, but where is this located on 52? "event controller" is greyed-out on 53, and "enable CC to host automation conversion" in 52's menus doesn't seem to do anything. I tried just live recording while playing with the modwheel as well, and it's not working...

Hmm.. actually, I tested with the event editor, I didn't try live recording.

Umm.. oh well? :(

I have a very annoying problem, and if it was answered in previous pages, I apoligise for asking it again. I just do not have thte patience to read more than 20 pages of this. Anyway, my problem is that sometimes when I use VSTis, specifically Slayer and JunoX2, sometimes when I insert a channel and put another VSTi channel, the first VSTi channel will not give sound. I have tried to work around this but I need at least two VSTi channels in my remix, so I cannot seem to do so. Please help!
