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

Recommended Posts

Yeah it is. It's that beatslicer generator. It's only a demo but you can buy the full for like 30$ (or crack it, i have yet to find a crack for it).

hey i have cool edit too, maybe i should start chopping stuff up in there... hmmmmm. I dont think i will buy the beatslicer, oh well. i still want to learn the fruity scratcher though, anyone know of a tutorial for it? I looked for about three hours last night.

they had a fruity beat slicer tutorial in there that let me know what the beat slicer was pretty much all about... do you really need a beat slicer if you manually program all of your percussion?

Probably not... i wouldn't think so i mean if you just used samples in the step sequencer maybe but if you made the samples or .wav beats your using yourself i wouldn't think so

i dont make the samples, i mean i put them in arranged, like i dont ever "EVER" use the step sequencer, it just seems like cheating to me or something, i put all my percussion into the piano roll and i dont use i also dont use the playlist, i program everything into one full song... does this like eat up more memory or something?

wow....i use the playlist and seperate patterns...all of that. I suspect what you do it's up more of the memory..i find patterns much easier because i stated creating music with Acid 2.0...

Yeah, i just don't use it. If i do, i just use automation.. i record the scratcher in a certain pattern doing a certain scratch. The thing tht doesn't make sense to me is the fact that the scratcher is an effect and not a generator...i can see it as both..

yeah, i only use scratch samples if i need em. I dont really have much use for scratching but i want to make some old school run dmc type remixes, my main inspiration would be "It's like that" run dmc vs jason nevins i think. Also egyptian lover is an old school techno hiphop mix that is pretty kewl i want to imitate the style of.

that's very time consuming, and very much a pain in the ass. if you wanna go on doing it that way, fine. but the step sequencer and playlist editor are there for a reason. it's about six-thousand times easier to do it that way. also... well... nevermind.

i actually find it to be a pain in the ass to have to switch between playlist and regular play to hear just one section, and then you have to move the playlist ummmm, playpoint (the line that tells you where in the song its playing) to where you want to hear, and in the playlist i will probably forget what little blocks are playing what... the playlist just seems too confusing to me, and i think it feels better to see my music in one big piece rather than a ton of little pieces i have to put together like a puzzle. I find the playlist more time consuming.

I guess if i used it more and got used to it, it could be better than one piano roll, i guess it comes down to personal taste.

I usually use the piano roll for percussion as well, because you can put percussion on the next measure to use as a fill. I guess I never use the step sequencer, either.

Well I'm what remixers call a Beginner. I have just submitted a remix to ChronoTrigger that might come up in a few days if it makes it.

Tell me what you think.

I also want to know on FruityLoops when using the playlist (because I haven't really dived into the whole program yet) I will have a solo going, and once the solo stops, it stays in the backround the whole time, Like the strings on the end of Lavos1999. It actually made a cool effect on Lavos1999 but in some cases I do not want it there. Any Help?
