That's probably not a fruity loops problem...or is it? I don't think anyone else has had this problem. Maybe you should try moving the file and opening from it's new location. O and try and make sure it's telling you that the .mid file doesn't exist, not some other part of fruity loops.

never mind i think i know what the prob is....its because of my windows fonts..they are messed up...soo if i save a file in FL i get p$8.mp3 or p$8.mid etc..

Now i have to format my shitty windowz..

Okay Im new here, and being the newb that I am, I have a question about breakbeats. How might one go about making one? I mean, I have the thing down perfectly in my head, but I have no idea how to transfer that into Fruityloops. Any suggestions/tolerance of my n00b idiocy would be much apreciated.

*Sigh*

A breakbeat is not a solo played by a drummer. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

A breakbeat is a drum rhythm in which another drum rhythm was taken, broken apart (thus the "break"), and rearranged into a new rhythm to give it a jagged edge where it was chopped apart. Breakbeat is also a style of Electronica that uses these rhythms. Chemical Brothers, Crystal Method, Hybrid, Fatboy Slim, and many others have done this style of music.

A breakbeat is rather simple to create. Take a drum rhythm, typically one you created, render it as a .wav. Put that .wav into a sound editing utility, such as CoolEdit or Sound Forge, and seperate it at any spot that you see a spike in the spectrum that would signify the hit of a drum. Take these new slices, render each one as a new .wav, and load them into your sequencing program. Rearrange them into a new drum beat, and you're good to go.

breakbeats generally do just that, break the beat. And often the use of gating is essential in breakbeat music, but its not absolutely necesary.

For example, if you have a beat that follows a melody, you will drop everything out of the song for a measure except the essential parts of the beat and the main part of the melody and then have the melody not play on any sections where no percussion is present (use gating for this). And then viola, you have a break in the beat.

Breakbeat songs would consist of doing this constantly throughout a single mix, well not constantly, but enough to make the song be classified as a breakbeat.

Usually breakbeats are accompanied by a general drum n bass beat throughout.

Dont everything i said too seriously since im not so experienced, but im just saying what i do know of breakbeats

I just have a quick question on FruityLoops... specifically the SoundFont player. Is there any way to... um... not have to buy this SoundFont player? Um... if, um, so... how would I go about this? I have tried something starting with a K and ending with a aZaA, but that didnt work out. Sorry if I'm being overly secretive, but I'm a newbie here and dont know what's what. Dont get all mad and defensive of the industry... if you dont approve of not-especially-legal computing than just say so and dont help me, or maybe ban me if I'm breaking some rule that I unfortunately did not know about... But, if I were to persue this not-especially-legal way to obtain the SounFont player (not that I will) what would I do? Hypothetical question (but its really not (but I shouldnt have said that)). I'm assuming many of you here are all very violently aversed to not-especially-legal computing, but... remixing is barely more than a hobby for me yet, definitely not worth many real dollars.

Also, where do you think I could get some feedback for non-remix compositions? I will eventually get to doing some remixes, but I'd like some feedback on my experiments to know what's good and what's not before starting one.

I found it on KaZzA easily. Search for Fruity Soundfont (NOT PLAYER) and you should get it. It's about 680 Kb or sumtin.

I have asked this question before, but I didn't get an answer. WHY do I get 30 seconds of blank space at the end of the songs I make. I open a MIDI in FL, add soundfonts, screw with the volume and pan, and render it. Viola! Cello! A 1:32 piece is 2:08 with blank space at the end of it.
