And I, or anyone else who wishes to, will try and answer them.

Do we have a deal?

That's not making a whole lot of sense, but I'm not liking the sound of it.

Are you talking about using the bundled demo songs and adding your own guitar to it? At any rate, don't submit pieces of music you didn't make, please!

Hey, now! I've had the idea for a while, but the Audio Forum just came up! It's a good idea in itself, besides.

I think he's talking about doing covers of existing songs.

No I mean like take a riff from a song and just play it on the guitar.

Ex: I play Sweet Child O Mine on the guitar

It's my guitar but it isn't my song.

It depends on what you mean by that. By you saying "short synth", I'm assuming that you're having problems getting a nice, solid lead sound.

You may want to explore the parameters of your synthesizer. Some of them, such as the sustain and decay parameters, will cut your synth short when set a certain way.

I'm still not totally certain what trouble you're having, though. Could you give more details?

Cool, I got a quick question, do you typically use soundfonts & other types of instruments for your songs?

I'm not sure for the shareware version, but usually you can check at:

File > Save as > and under Save as type > MPEG layer 3 file. Or just Export under file.

I know this isnt personal, but what are DJ's meant to do if they want to remix something? I know some will use their own synth and rewrite a track, but sometimes a mix of two well known songs can be buzzing or hilarious.

Were you just concerned with him nicking a demonstration sound and posting it?

Indeed. It'll funny to see how it'll turn out, the conflicting natures of competition and trying to be nice to each other. :) Best of luck all i say, if you say the same to me :)

When I try to extend the thingy where you place the beats..... it extend to a limited number.. it lasts like ten second, how do you make 3 minute songs?


You could really go for a chocolate chip cookie right about now...

1) Click the Playlist button (or press F5)
2) Add loops on the appropriate layer by left-clicking

I used to use soundfonts a lot, but I now more frequently use Reason ReFills (Along with using ReWire, since I use FL for sequencing), and external hardware (Yamaha Clavinova CVP-207)

That's pretty much it. Going through my duties as an audio mod, I've seen it happen a lot.

Simply adding reverb shouldn't screw up your sound. I think your problem may be the order in which you are placing the effects. If you have the reverb added before the distortion, it will distort all of the reverb as well, and you'll get a very ugly sound. Make sure that reverb is placed under the distortion effect. Does this fix your problem? If not, give a few more details =)

Oh, man, there's so many sample resources out there! Unfortunately, I don't have the time that I'd like in order to be able to point you to some of them, but I did find a page that you should get use out of.

http://remixer.com/beats/

They're all in MP3 format, but it shouldn't be too hard to be able to use them. On that page, I also found this.

THE amen drum break! Enjoy.

It seems that you do not have the bundled sound codec installed.

In your FLStudio folder, go to System\Installers\VorbisACM.

In that folder, right click vorbisacm.inf and select install. You should be able to hear all of the bundled samples now

Since you are my new best friend, is there any way for me to use more than one instrument with Fast Dist applied without there being any sound conflicts or crackle? I would love a way :( If only i had Reason.

How do you extend the length of the song? I still haven't been able to get past a 6-second loop.

Also, is it possible to open existing MP3 files in order to edit/remix them in FruityLoops, or will I need a different program to do that?

See the included picture(thnx to Denvish!), you have to use playlist en there 'draw' your 6-second loops.

Also, is it possible to open existing MP3 files in order to edit/remix them in FruityLoops, or will I need a different program to do that?

Yes it can in the newest Fruityloops. Otherwise you'll need to convert your mp3 file to WAV. Or use another program to edit the mp3, like soundforge or cooledit.

Don't worry about it, the AP allows file sizes of up to 4Mb (~4000kb). A large percentage of submitted audio is 3+ Mb (which makes it a trifle annoying when I have to clear the AP's pending list), so 1.5 Mb is definitely not overly huge.

It is possible to compress your mp3s when exporting from FL, by dropping the bitrate. 128kb is probably more than adequate, considering that Flash artists are going to compress the sound a lot when they export it in Flash (if they have any sense, they'll drop it to 32kb bitrate or less)

that would help me too. being new everything I come up with is to strait-forward(listen to my only three songs and you'll see what I mean) there ok but I wanna be good. I tried the tutorials in the program but that pissed me off. Hard to read and annoying. If there is a sight that has you go step by step and shows me by having me do it would be great. Thanks so much for your help and for making the most needed thread
