what?

Look, I have a first note that is 12 steps long, and starts on the 1st step. 2nd note, 4 steps long, starts on 4rd step. I use FL preset sound Strings->STR_GTF_C1 (non looped bass sample with a slow decay). When I play that track with Cut Itself ON the 2nd note simply cuts the previous one and I only hear the 2nd note. When I turn OFF Cut Itself, 2nd note sums with the sound of the previous, making it all louder. So again I turn ON Cut Itself, but also I set my own ADSR setting in the Channel Setting->INS->VOL. I set min att, min hold, min dec, max sus, min rel (so sound is heard only during the duration of the note). When I play that track again, the sounds are summed (louder) and I hear the 1st note playing after the 2nd note. Is this more clearer now?

OH. yeah, thats a lot better.

so you basically want two notes playing, and you want it to stay the same volume, right? don't use the asdr for something like this - its more for articulated passages and looped notes that have to be an exact length, like in padded stuff.

you're going to have to automate the volume on the whole thing to get it to stay one uniform volume. i'm not sure why you'd want to do that since it'll sound a little wierd - its not a natural sound to hear that, specially down low, but whatever. automation is the way to go - just edit events and set the channel volume at half of what it is now when it reaches that note, then pop it up back to normal at the end of the second note.

is that what you needed?

Yes that's one part of it. The other part was just my curiosity why does it work in that way :D

Tnx.

ok so, i was working on something in FL5, and all of the sudden error error cannot find blah blah/artwork/skins/ whatever.bmp

occasionally this happens...i was wondering if there is an easier way to fix this other than re-installing because i really don't feel like doing that...any suggestions? im a dummy and didn't back up the files last time this happened, boo.

On the topic of FL artwork, those damn grey-green fruits are really starting to depress me. How do you change the fruity loops wallpaper?

And in response to the guy above me, I use a wireless network connection and Fruity Loops, and have found no relationship between any aspect of the two in any way shape or form.

I seem to be having trouble giving my songs a "full" sound, or whatever you want to call it. They always sound really....empty. Since I could never explain exactly what I mean, I'll just post something of mine so you can hear for yourself.

Here's to hoping someone responds before the link dies...

Well, I figured it COULD be an FL issue, since everything I do is within the program, so I thought I'd post this here.

I have to ask though, what does arrangement have to do with making it sound not as hollow? I realize that to some degree arrangement does affect the "fullness" of a song, but I think the biggest problem here has something to do with production probably the free soundfonts I used. I've heard people do better things than that with free sounds though, so I don't want to try to use that as an excuse.

Scratch that last post. What I originally meant to ask was: is FL capable of producing high quality songs using only the Fruity effects? I mainly use the parametric EQ, reverb, and stereo enhancer. Is there something I'm missing to make it sound better?
