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

I'm trying to link the cutoff of ts404 with my pitchblend on my keyboard. The problem is the pitchblend is auto linked to the pitch in FL. How do I remove it from the pitch? The pitch is the only thing that will work for a controller on my keyboard.

get to where it says that the current soundfont is "Nineteen." Click on the Folder icon next to it and browse for your soundfont and select it. yay.

I've done that, it just reverts back to "Nineteen" next time I load the program.

Did you buy the soundfont player? If you didn't, then that's what happens.

I have a terrible problem with making MIDI's in Fruityloops: when I export a flp file to midi, I only get acoustic piano and the standard drums in the midi. These are the steps I do when making a midi:

...

perhaps the problem is that when I enable midi output, I get an error: "The given device is already in use. Wait till it's avaible and try it again" (translated from dutch, but I think it looks like that).

If you know what's going on, please help me.

I followed your steps exactly and I was fine. I suspect there's a problem with your install of FL, or there's a hardware/software problem somewhere. Try running the FL diagnostic tool if you're a registered user (help>FL Studio Diagnostic Tool).

RePosting. Does anyone know why it's opening like this, and how I can get it to open in the VST window?

Easy one. It doesn't like you.

But seriously, you shouldn't use Slayer if you're looking for a realistic E. Guitar sound. You should get a guitar amp VSTi. I know there's at least one at Kvr-vst.

I have a question about soundfonts in FL. Is there a way to add vibrato(maybe in an event editor window) to soundfonts? It doesn't matter too much to me if I can use the mod wheel on my keyboard with it or not, just that the capability for vibrato exists for soundfonts in FL(and I hope the solution isn't to put a ton of pitch bends up and down alternating along the length of the vibrato).

Also, for soundfonts, would the Crystal VST (www.greenoak.com/crystal/) be a better plugin to use for soundfont playback?

I need to know whether Crystal would be better than the FL Soundfont Player since most of my sounds come from soundfonts, and I need to know about vibrato for the same reason. Thanks.

Kawaru -

Vibrato is always possible by using an LFO, however with Crystal you can't do that. The best possible way to do vibrato is just by using an 'edit event' wave, or by using the Fruity Formula controller and using that to modulate the pitch or volume, based on how you want your vibrato to sound.

As for Crystal, i've found that its got its good parts and its bad parts - some are ok, some are just CPU rhinos. Take your pick...but SF isn't that bad either.

:twisted:

Thanks for all the answers, guys. I did some messing around of my own yesterday and found that I could link the mod wheel on my keyboard to the modulation knob on the Fruity SF Player.

So I guess that works for what I need, but it doesn't seem to make much difference for soundfonts where the samples already have vibrato. I'm assuming the only solution to that is to find non-vibrato samples.

Nemba, I'm also going to check out the player you linked to and see how well I like it.

Is it possible to import WAV's or MP3's to FL? i want to use pieces of other songs in some of my compositions, but im not sure how to cut them out of the actual songs...

Well, the basic way that I would do that is simply using the Audio Clip channel in Fruity. Just plug that in, and use it liek you'd use a sampler. You could theoretically use a sampler also, but the AC is a lot more specialized.

No Mp3s, though - it only takes OGG or WAV files. sry.

:twisted:

Please excuse my noobishness, but all the thread links on the first page do not work anymore. Could someone re-copy new/updated links (just beginning tutorials, etc)?

It would be rather painfull to search through this 100-page thread for the new links.

Thanks.
