Fruity Vocodex? mwahaha. Fruity Vocoder is old. They remade that with FL9 I believe (could be 8)

Actually I've been searching everywhere for a good Orchestra soundfont, even Google, and I'm unable to find it anywhere. This may seem like a stupid question but can anyone tell me where I can find an Orchestral soundfont? I really cannot find one anywhere, and I'm looking everywhere and still can't find one.

Hey guys!

What are names of some popular VST plugins that are used in FL? I've really only been messing around with Sytrus.

Whats the file type, and is it an audio clip or a sample? (In fl... the channel will be pink or grey respectively, you may need to reload it in as an audio clip)

Does just the outline appear of the box?

If so , open the properties for that audio clip and de-select "play from disc" or something like that. The form should appear then.

This would be accomplished with an automation clip for panning. Send your channel to a mixer track, then right click the panning knob and go to "create automation clip" then just do it. You can also use the record setting in the top middle to do it by hand, or there's a few other ways to automate it that I can't remember that maybe you can find in the manual or on google or wherever.

However, if the kick drops out, there's a really annoying click sound that's very noticable on the sidechained channel.

I've noticed this on other newgrounds tracks, but not on any professional music. Is there any way to avoid this?

Included in FL Studio 9 is a new feature in the fruity limiter which allows it to act as a sidechain compressor without the need for fruity peak controller. The click you're describing could be one of several things, so before I say any more could you check and see if the sound persists will no effects or compression on the channel you are sidechaining to? (i.e. turn off the sidechaining but leave the peak controller or whatever).

Also while I'm here, I have a question: does anybody have any creative ways to make windy filler noises? All your generic electronic whoosh and whishes, I'm sure you've heard 'em before. An obvious one is to put a lowpass filter on it and automate that, but I was wondering about other methods?

Yes, just a simple increasing automation connected to the delay's input/feed or damp knob.

Um...I'm experimenting with this melody I made, and I was wondering if there's any way to figure out the exact notes the arpeggiator is playing in FL studio, other than listening by ear. It's really complicated with a four note chord being played and whatnot...

Well, put the four note chord into the piano role, then go to the little triangle button in the top left, tools, arpeggiator and look for yourself.

I'm just at the cleaning up stage of this massive song I've been working on, but it's becoming virtually impossible now because the program is just being too slow.

Restart your pc, disk clean, registry clean, defrag, close other users, close other programs, set your VSTs to play in low quality if they have the option, optimise effects where you can (remove unused things, use one compressor instead of 2 if you can, stuff like that).

One thing that helps me a lot is switching the smart disable for all plugins. (Tools > Macros > Switch smart disable for all plugins). It gets my CPU usage to like 6%.

For some reason my song has started skipping and sounding all glitchy when I play it back. Like an old CD that keeps skipping ahead or a record thats getting scratched too much. You know the sound... any advice on why it's happening?

Most likely your audio settings. Go to your audio settings and up the buffer length until it stops

Also, how do I reset the channel settings for a particular plugin instrument to its default?

This varies from plug-in to plug-in. Usually there is an "init" button or "reset" or many times a default preset in the list of presets.

I went to file < import but it looks like you can only import MIDI files. Any help?

You can either put the drum loop anywhere in your 'Patches' folder of FL Studio (Typically Local Disk > Program Files > Image-Line > FL Studio > Data > Patches) and then drag it to the step sequencer or playlist, depending on where you want it, or you can open the Edison (by clicking on the 'Open new audio editor' icon in the Extra Shortcut Panel), click on the SD card icon at the very left of the Edison window, click 'Load sample...', find your drum loop, and once you've loaded it, click on the button at the very right entitled (Drag / copy sample / selection), and drag that button onto the playlist or step sequencer.

Sorry for the massive sentence and bad explanation, and I hope I helped. There's probably a quicker way to do it, but that's how I do it ^^.

Ah, my bad, I should pay attention more often...

I also put the .wav file in with the loops folder where you said it would be, but it's not showing up in the browser... D:

Try and put the drum loop in Local Disk > Program Files > Image-Line > FL Studio > Data > Patches > User. Then, go to the browser, and click on the User folder in there. If that doesn't work, try refreshing the browser by hitting Ctrl + R.

If that doesn't work either, then there's something weird in the Fruity Edition which I don't know about O.o.

I can see the file in the user folder, but damn, when I look at the same folder from within FL Studio, it says it isn't there!

OK, that's weird. Are you sure the file is a wav file? The browser only shows files with particular file extensions, I believe.
