Need a little help here with TS404...

The problem I'm encountering here is with distortion. I made an somewhat irritating preset with TS404. When I play it in Fruity everything is just fine, with annoying distortion and all. Now here's the problem: when I export my song to mp3, the distortion's gone not completely gone, but the screaming noise is gone. Anybody know what's this about?

I could post my preset, if it is of any help.

I'm still hacking away at it ... I haven't covered very much, though, since I've been particularly busy over the past weeks. I'm about a fifth of the way through my bit.

DM Lee: Hopefully, once myself and Mythril have finished, the new FL 101 will be mostly for advanced questions. Almost every basic question has been asked and addressed throughout this thread ... Although I suppose having an FL Masterclass thread wouldn't be such a bad idea.

Edit: Wow, I'm further than I think. :) I've got about 18 pages left. Then we have to make categories, order the responses according to the categories, fix it up so it's more HTML worthy, find somewhere to host it (would Pretzel be willing to put it in with the guides on this site?) ... Sounds like fun!

I have a question.

I know that you can tie a keyboard into FL and have input from it.

I'm wondering if there's a way I could get a drumpad or electric drumkit to do the same thing.

I just don't want to buy some drumpads and find out I can't do it.

Idont know anything about drumpads at all, but I would assume it would have to use be midi compatible, like, it would record the hits as midi information to play the song back for you... if it was something you would have to record as audio then I dont think fl would support that, you would need some kind of audio processing tool like cooledit or acid or something.

I dont think fruity records live audio, just midi, but I could be wrong and if I waisted space here sorry.

K, i didnt know.

I thought everything has to work through piano rolls in fruity unless it uses the step sequencer.

If you recorded audio live would it be just a really long note on middle c or something, or one block in the step sequencer or something?

I havent dealt with recording audio with fruity yet, sorry.

Firstly, does the drum module have a MIDI output? If it does, you can export MIDI data from it, although you'll only have the MIDI data rather than the sound of the module.

It should have a sound output on there somewhere, although if you want to record in FL, you need the Producer Edition. If you've got that, you can record from an audio source straight into FL ... I think this is covered in the manual, and there's a guide in the "Tutorials" section of your Projects folder. I'd explain a bit more fully, but I don't have the Producer Edition, and I'm supposed to be busy.

There was a post on this a little while ago... You should use something else for recording audio, cooledit or soundforge, or one of those free ones that were mentioned earlier, and then save it as a wav to use in FL. If you really want to, load a random sample, and in the channel settings, press ctrl+e to go to the recording interface.

I have Cooledit, but my point in questioning was that I wanted to have it so I could play a keyboard and have the audio come out of my speakers as SimSynth, Osc, Soundfont, whatever.

Okay here's a pickle for you guys to fix.

I attempted to make a fadeout in my song by pressing the record button and gradually turning down the master volume. Somehow it moved to the start at payback, so at the start of my song there's a pointless annoying fadeout...

It's too late to undo the recording.

What can I do about it? I've tried deleting the events, over-riding the recording with actual events, setting it to a controller, the reset button and everything, but it still does this stupid god damn fadeout, and it won't let me record over the top of it or anything! In fact, it's gone and messed up and faded out repeatedly through all the song, sometimes leaving it virtually silent for a long time, and just turning up and down randomly every now and then, it's completely ruined my mix!! What the heck am I supposed to do??
