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


Recommended Posts

There should be a whole board for FL...this is too long

I've been seriously debating going through and compressing this whole thing into a bunch of compact info sections, and starting a new FL thread with them. Like, only one thread, and first post is your basic stuff, then the next one is on clipping or something, then going from there. I've only got a 56k here at home though - is there any way someone can get this whole thread into a PDF or HTML file or something so that i can work on it offline? If someone can load each page and save it, that would work too - just something so i can access it offline at home. I'll go from there.

EDIT: clarity and spelling.

when i start a new project, how do i get it so there is only one default channel (Sampler) instead of 4 (kick, clap, hihat and snare) and keep it that way?

don't think you can...sorry. make a saved project with only the sampler and just open that for every new project?

No, you can change your startup template to whatever you want. Mine is set on a blank sampler. Unfortunately I'm at school so I don't remember how I did it :( Check out the FL help though, it's definitely in there.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a FruityLoops or Reason question, but this board seems more active so I'll try my luck here.

I've got a FL file I've made that I want to be able to transfer to Reason, as I really don't want to have to write it all out again. Is it possible to do this?

I dont know about that but my friend has truble with his MIDI files when I got FLstudios5 my MIDI stoped working. What do i do? can you help?

Likely your settings reset. When I upgraded to 5, I just had to re-select the correct MIDI and audio devices. Try that.

If you need more information, then provide greater detail about your problem.

1. Keyboard Controller's just like any other thing you can link a control to (like the peak controller, X-Y controller etc). Just link it to any control the same as you would for any other controller. You can then write patterns for it in the piano roll, or use an external keyboard to control it (probably what it was intended for in any case). Check the help file for more info.

2. LP = Low pass (filter). It's a frequency filter designed to allow low frequencies to "pass" and cut out others according to how it's set.

Hello, how exactly does the online download system for flstudio 5 work? If a hard drive crash were to occur, would fruity loops be able to be reinstalled? Is the download some kind of file that could be backed up on a cd? Thanks very much. I am highly considering fl via download and would just like to know. Has anybody had negative experiences with this? positive? Again, thanks. :D

You get a regcode and username. Write it down. Input it every time you want to re-download the regkey for the software, really pretty simple. I've had to do it about a dozen times and have never had any problems.

All I have to say is, FL Studio 5 is awesome. If you have the plan with free upgrades get this now. If you have the money, order it. This version is awesome. I just got it today and I'm already noticing some much better samples. Guitars that sound like guitars, drum kits that sound real. It is great.

For vsti> right click a channel, insert channel>more>refresh>fast scan, then check the box with the vsti(s) you want. The vsti will now appear in the insert channel list.

For vst> go into fx>select>more>refresh>fast scan, then check the box. The vst will now appear in the select list.

lemme know if it works. if not, make sure your vst(i)s are in the right folder within the fruity path.

I couldn't get my midi to work for a while either, correct devices, everything as it should be... except for one problem. You have to add "Fruity LSD" as a sound effect in the Master channel, then change it's channel to 0. My midi's automatically start as channel 0, so LSD needed a little convincing to work.

I've got a problem with FL Studio 4. Every time I save a MIDI, the instrument patches revert back to ---. So I have a midi that's entirely piano (except for the percussion track.) Is there a simple solution to my problem, or do I need to download some other program and try it? I've tried some other MIDI programs, but they usually end up messing something up with my song.

FL5 question...

Okay, i JUST switched from FL3.5.6 to FL5 and, well, you know in the playlist and in the piano roll in fl3.5.6 things would snap very neatly to the grid, and you could expand and shrink nicely and neatly to the grid, well is there a way i can do this easily in FL5 without having to be very precise about every click and quantizing it?!?!?!
