Ok, so I am about to purchase both a KORG WAVESTATION SR and ROLAND JV-880 synth modules and I quite like the sounds I am getting from them. Is there anyway I can hook them up to Fruity Loops through MIDI like soundfonts (in that I can use several instruments from the module at a time, it seems to me that I would only be able to use the instrument that was currently selected) or somehow get them onto my computer? I don't know much about this kind of work, but I would really like to get them working on my piano roll, I really like the instruments on it. Thanks!

You can accomplish this by using midi in and midi out at the same time, and audio cables going into your mixer [preferably] then into your computer.

I think you'd have to record the waveform in FL somehow to work with it though.

Also, low latency is a must. :)

Well, if you want both the Korg and the Roland to work at the same time, I'd recommend a mixer. Just a small one, like that one Behringer for $40. 4 channels, real simple-like.

Midi/audio latency is the delay time between action and reaction. For example, if you have 20ms of latency [which is surprisingly unnoticable], the time between hitting a note on your keyboard and hearing it through your speakers is 20 milliseconds.

Recording waveforms in FL has been explained before. It's kind of a bitch, but made easier by the fact that your keyboards can be midi controlled.

Hello there!

I'd like to know if there's any way I can directly feed the sound coming into my computer to the FL Mixer/FX Processor?

I have 3 synthesizers, which are somewhat limited in effects. The plug-ins I have with FL are much better. However, I need to know if the final "mix" will sound good before I record synth sequences... and with all the FX plug-ins I might use, the possibilities are endless. So I'm wondering if I can just feed the sound directly to a mixer track (with activated effects), thus immediatly having an idea of the sound I'm going to have in the end.

If that's not directly possible or implemented, is there a generator plug-in that can achieve that by directly taking the microphone input and giving it to FL?

Thank you for your help guys!

FL 6 issue…

I just recently acquired FL 6 and it’s great, but placing a track in Paino Roll and Playlist is way too sensitive.

Is there any way to just start a track at the beginning of a measure without spending 20 min making sure it’s perfectly lined up?

Help me, fellow music men (and women) You’re my only hope…

As we look above the red circle in this picture, we see the little word 'snap' followed by a selection with the word 'line' in it.

You probably have none. Change it to line.

Okay, so a question not about FLStudio, but the samples that come with it. yes, I know they're all overused, and that almsot anyone can identify them in no time at all. But does anyone know if said samples are free for use? i.e. if I put together a little musical group and made a CD, could we sell the CD?

(sorry, best place I could find to put the question)

Might've been asked already, but.. With my M-Audio Prokeys 88 keyboard hooked up to my computer via a USB Midi cable, the sustain pedal doesn't seem to be picked up on by Fruityloops.

Is there something I could try fiddling with?

I asked a few pages back about a problem I was having with FL. Everything was coming out distorted when I put 4 or 5 instruments together. I mentioned that I had only 256 mb RAM at the time, and somebody said that that wasn't enough. Now I have my laptop, and I have 1 gb of RAM and the same problem... everything distorted.

If you want, I can host the file...

I've picked up FL Studio two or three times, among other music-making programs...

I don't learn easily, especially from non-interactive material. (IE: internet, books. I don't consider search engines to be the same level of interaction as communicating with a human. it's grossly inadequate, especially if questions pop up a lot)

I'm also easily discouraged.

is there a way to plug a MIDI into a SoundFont?

I know last time I tried FL I got a WAVE file to play at 78.4 BPM at the same time as another WAVE file at 86.6 BPM. now I can't find any such simple settings directly connected to the WAVE files.

"57 Channels and nothing's on". tons of information, and no way to make sense of what's actually important. I have a headache. too much stumulus and/or stress gives me a headache. I think that's the problem with these new programs... they have to include all the features you would need, but not everyone will use all of them, so there's superfluous stuff there that just distracts you from the job. you're not SUPPOSED to learn it all inside-out, but they still treat the information on it that way.

I wonder how much I could actually get out of trying to transpose a song into a ... whatever. you know, figure out the notes. I don't know what's the best way to be familiar with notes and such.

oh god! why can't I find any documentation on this?! I can't open multiple channels in the piano roll, and I can't open multiple piano roll windows. how am I supposed to compare two channels?? god! nothing works! I turn the volume of a channel down and it still plays! nothing I do works!

how do i start recording and getting used to the tools used? advice much needed

NEVER EVER EVER EVER admit to the entire forum that you downloaded a program instead of purchased it. You will be looked down upon.
