The Complete Guide to FL Studio for Beginners
Let me tell you a sobering fact. They make excuses like this:. So in this guide, we are going to break down the main features of FL Studio to get you making music in the least time possible.
You need a comprehensive guide for learning electronic music. You can download it below. Download our free eBook for new producers and get started on the right foot.
The first thing to know about FL Studio is that all the windows can be moved around. Nothing is fixed, besides the toolbar across the top of the screen, which is what we will look at first. Here you will find the File, Edit, Options and much more up the top left.
Those should be pretty self-explanatory. Switching between them allows you to move between sketching out ideas to making a full track, pretty seamlessly. The snap control can be specified at those levels individually too piano roll etc. These are important, as they bring up the main views which we will discuss next. This is what the browser is for music producers in FL Studio.
By default, there are quite a few different folders. This will show you all sounds, automation clips, actions, anything done in the current project. This will show you all effect and generator a fancy way of saying instrument plugins. Any third-party VSTs or plugins you add will show up here too. Once there, click on one of the spare folder slots to bring up a window allowing you to choose a folder. If the Browser is your toolbox and materials, then the Channel Rack is your workbench.
Here is where you can make patterns and bring ideas to life. You can drag them over the top of the existing sounds, or into a new slot underneath, which will automatically create a new Sampler. You have a loop mode button next to that, which by default loops the entire pattern. Down the bottom, you can add in new channels. The key part of the channel rack is the step sequencer, and this allows you to quickly sketch out ideas. To add a step , left click on the box.
You can also drag across to add multiple. To delete a step , right click on a box also with the option of also dragging. Clicking on the box with the name also selects that channel. When a channel is selected, you can use some of the applicable menu settings we discovered earlier by revealing the dropdown menu options. The green LED determines whether the channel is on or not. Left-click to turn them on and off. You can right-click to solo a channel.
The two knobs next to the LED are for panning and volume control, respectively. This is great for mixing on the go without having to bring up the mixer and is very intuitive for when you are in a flow state. The number next to those knobs determines the mixer routing , which is something we will explore further in the Mixer section of this guide. Up in the top right, there are a couple of buttons. Clicking the mini step sequencer buttons swaps all steps to notes on the piano roll, which we will get into the next section.
The knob next to that determines the swing amount , which is a sort of timing effect that alters the notes to sound more human and groovy-sounding. Forming part of the Channel Rack is the super-powerful Piano Roll.
FL Studio is famed for its incredible piano roll, and the smooth functionality it has to offer. The same way you draw steps on the step sequencer is the same in the piano roll, but you have the option of clicking and dragging up, down, left and right to change timing and pitch. You can also hover your mouse at the end of a note to drag its duration shorter or longer.
Down the bottom, you have the velocity for each note. You can left-click and drag to adjust these values, as well as select an option from the Control dropdown menu to change what is being altered. Firstly, the main tools on the toolbar:. The arrangement view is designed to do just that. On the left in the Picker , any patterns you create in the Channel Rack will be able to be selected and dragged in. You can place these in any track, which is the beauty of FL Studio. But the arrangement is where you can use more than just patterns.
A lot more. You can drag in audio samples directly into the arrangement and structure them however you want, without having to load them into a sampler and play them with notes first. Additionally, any automation clips you create will appear here, which is something we will get into in the last section. Similar to the channel rack, there are a variety of tracks you can drag clips onto.
The height of these tracks can be resized, and you can turn them on and off by left-clicking on them and soloing certain tracks by right-clicking. You also have a variety of tools similar to the piano roll, with two differences. Once you have your sounds arranged how you want, the mixer is where all the magic happens with processing. Personally, the mixer is one of my favourite tools for creative sound design, because of the processing and routing capabilities.
Each channel will be assigned to a mixer track from the Channel Rack, as per the number we discussed earlier. If not, you can select a number to route it to. On the main interface, you can see all the mixer channels, and the master channel on the far left. The meter on the far left indicates the level of your entire track, whereas the small meters along the track indicate the level of each track.
For each track, you have a mute switch, a volume fader, pan controls for moving a sound left and right , stereo imager for making things sound more stereo or mono and other switches that are more advanced. These are your main tools for mixing. Most of the mix work will be on the volume faders, balancing the individual levels of sounds to make them blend nicely together. This indicates the routing of each channel, which by default is straight to the master channel the big one on the left.
This is where the real fun begins. So the inserts on the right are where all FX are added to process each mixer track. Simply left-click on the slot to open up a menu to select from the variety of plugins. There are many here to use , but some of the main and more practical ones are:. Each of these requires a lesson on how the various FX types works, so click the above links to see some great resources on those.
Now those are the 5 main sections of FL Studio, but there are some key features beyond this that will help you to start creating music. If you want to add plugins and be wary of this if you are a new producer , then follow the next steps to begin adding your Serums and your Ozones.
This will bring up a new window with a variety of options. FL Studio knows how to find plugins pretty well, so click on the Find plugins button in the top left. Wait a bit while it scans through your computer you might want to make yourself a coffee if you have a lot of plugins.
Simply navigate and choose a folder. When you load it up, if you want it to appear alongside the list of FL Studio plugins, simply click on the menu in the top left and select Add to plugin database. One of the most powerful tools in the arsenal of the modern electronic music producer — automation.
This allows you to add movement to sounds, influence the energy and tension, and fix up any mix issues throughout the duration of your track, along with everything else.
In the arrangement, a new clip will appear with a line, describing the control that you just automated. Right-click on the line anywhere to add an automation point, and left click to move it around. Notice it will snap to the current grid, which is neat. If you right-click on a specific automation point, you can change the curve type, which is super fun to play around with.
Now if you are used to using another DAW, then you might be asking where the bouncing and audio processing functionality is at. You can load it up on a slot in the insert FX area of the mixer. That being said, if you want to put it on an individual track, go ahead. Try dragging in a sample from the browser into the large sample area at the bottom, or clicking record and recording something from the track.
There is a myriad of processing functions in Edison. Because finishing music is the aim, right? Navigate to the top toolbar and click the save icon with the wave underneath it, as pictured adjacent. After choosing where to export, the following window will come up. After that, hit start and watch your masterpiece export like a b Apart from that, you should now have the basic set of knowledge to begin using FL Studio. You might be wondering how to use all these techniques to actually start making music.
Until now. Learn how to master the fundamentals of electronic music production with the best roadmap for new producers. Learn Production. Aden Russell General.

You can master your track within your DAW and even with the stock plugins. From the beginning, I want to establish that this article applies to my preferences. Surely you know other ways to master your tracks, so do not expect an exact recipe. Export your finished track , make sure you export it in Wav format. This way it will be higher quality than mp3. Add a Compressor Fruity Compressor plug-in.
Mastering is the final step in music production. After mastering, your song should be ready to go public. This is an example of something that you could easily do with the same setup. It may be a slightly too much squashed, but anyway, compare the difference:. Keep in mind that mastering goes hand-in-hand with mixing. Your song needs to sound balanced and as good as possible before moving into to the mastering stage. So if all that sounds a little too familiar, I recommend checking out some of my guidelines for mixing electronic music.

Let me tell you a sobering fact. They make excuses like this:.
Компания связана обязательством ни при каких условиях не раскрывать подлинное имя или адрес пользователя. - Это не доказательство, - сказал Стратмор. - Но кажется довольно подозрительным.
Сделка отменяется. Нуматек корпорейшн никогда не получит невзламываемый алгоритм… а агентство - черный ход в Цифровую крепость. Он очень долго планировал, как осуществит свою мечту, и выбрал Нуматаку со всей тщательностью. Нуматек - богатая фирма, наиболее вероятный победитель аукциона.
Она, разумеется, знала, что были и другие программы, над которыми он работал так долго, программы, создать которые было куда легче, чем нераскрываемый алгоритм. Вирусы. Холод пронзил все ее тело. Но как мог вирус проникнуть в ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Ответ, уже из могилы, дал Чатрукьян.
Он катался по полу и сквозь мутную пелену в глазах видел девушку, бегущую к вращающейся двери.
