Ive had this problem before but it never bothered me because I dont usually use samples, but upon actualy testing the sound compared to soundfonts I would much rather have my beats done with samples.

The problem is, last night i got about 800 or 900 or so wav samples from a few sites (a lot were drumloops and drum samples, but there were also vocal samples and various other things I would really enjoy using) and only about 40 or so of them are recognized by fruityloops.

They are wav files but fruity just doesnt see them so I can't even use any of them.

Is there something i need to change in the audio properties or something?

I am going to check the help file in fruity right now and if i find the answer I will delete this post.

DAMN GAY WINAMP

When you have an mp3 or wav file they both show as "winamp media file" so you dont really know whats what...

The site I went to for these claimed everything to be in wav format, though 90% of everything was mp3...

OMG! i have like 800 mp3s to convert to wav format... sigh...

don't know if this was ever asked...but sorry, i just don't feel like looking through 79 pages :). anyway, is there anyway to create triplet/sixteenth notes in FL? im not sure it thats the proper name (haven't had music class in years) but what im talking about is like for a drumroll that is really rapid. like i saw the piano roll for a drumroll, and it had like three notes inside each step...how do you do that? ill take a screen shot if you don't know what i mean...but im sure you do...kinda. thanks

In Piano Roll

Doeble click on a sixteenth note. Window pops up, you got two rows of three boxes.

On the second row, set the boxes to 0:0:8. When you do this on the second note, move the note onto thefirst and then make sure you double click the second note and not the first. Duration is the same but make thestart time have it's third box turned up to 8 instead of 0. Do the same for the third note.

:P There's a much easier way.

Simply adjust the snap value in that little black window way up there that probably says "Line" right now.

Tip o' the day: Learn to use the playlist, it's one of FL's most useful tools.

Also, there's no way to export to a MIDI file and keep all your playlist information in it, MIDI simply doesn't handle that stuff. I'm afraid FLP is the only format that'll save your playlist.

if you want to personalize your fruity loops listen up!

go to your fruity loops folder and look for where your sounds are once you find them you can move them around and put your sounds in them. When you go back into fruity loops the menus and sound should be in the order that you aranged them

(if you understood that go ahead and try it out, it make it easier to navagate around...........but if you did't understand by all means don't try this, you can screw up your stuff and might have to reinstall everything over)

kinda helpfull I think, write me if you have any questions.

BlackMageArmy: Actually, you can do a lot of personalizing with the "Extra Search Directories" under the File Settings menu. I personally use it quite a lot so that I don't have to keep on moving things out of the FL directory when I want to install a new version, and all the files are accessable to other programs without referring to the FL directory. If you make any folders or add any files inside the FL directories, though, they will show up the next time you run FL.

Today's top tip: Get new skins, and change your background every now and then. It really helps your creative drive.

n00b here :

I'm trying to use FL for the first time.... and since I don't like the piano roll thing, I just import my midi stuff in it.... so...

I enjoy playing around with the wasp thing and soundfont player... however I'm sure FL can do more than just that.... but... :?:

< n :oops::oops: b...

If you want the FLP file, just IM me. :wink:

Or better yet, use a scoring program (one that uses music scores) and write your music there. Export out of the scoring program and into FruityLoops. Now all you need to do is just touch up the velocities which is the lower graph (the graph on the bottom).

If you don't like the FL piano roll, you should give up music. It's the best piano roll there is out of all I've tried (Cubase, Logic, etc)

I didn't say I don't like FL's Piano Roll. I just don't like Piano Roll, that's all.

Actually, that's what I do. I use my good ol' MIDI score editing program and I import all the stuff in FL... but ... I'd like to know what to do next, because for now, it's somehow still MIDI... :?
