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

Recommended Posts

click on the generator and you'll see a little box in the upper-right hand corner that says FX. double-click that and assign it to a mixer channel. then on that corresponding mixer channel just lay down any effects you want and a winner is you.

keep in mind that you can assign more than one generator to a mixer channel, too.

cheers

dj inflict, effects are not generators :P

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. :)

I don't have....well I don't use an external mixer. How do I record waveforms in FL? And Low Latency? Start speaking ENGRISH man! :)

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.

I have a mixer I'm sure, my dads a sound guy at Dollywood, he has all kinds of sound equipment lying round the house.

Do you know where its been explained before? Was it on this topic somewhere?

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)

The included samples are free to use in your productions, but you can't like, sell a sample CD of them or something.

Why would you want to anyway?

D:

There's a little ditty I made back when I was using the demo that I'm very attached to.

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?
