anyway, judging by your amount of posts and horrid faux anime style avatar one would assume you've been on the internet for a while, and therefore knew to google before asking anything, then again it probably slipped my mind for a second that you, like most people on this forum is a self obsessed baby who can't do anything by yourself and when someone you percieve as lower than yourself due to less won contests (ie pleasing 3 musical illiterates and buoy) you can't just say thanks and be done with it without adding some asshole bit like

but isn't this the whole point of the thread? Why go elsewhere when a lot of people use FL Studio and know the ins and outs of it anyway?

Ha ha ha :D Glad you said that about me, friend! I'm chuffed!

And I think everyone knows objectively why some people win more contests than others -- shows everywhere, not just on NG.

Sports are entertainment. Music is an art. Besides which, that doesn't even answer what she said.

I'm sorry, but enough stoking fires, okay? There will be no further name-calling or insults or bickering or raising past hurts in this thread. Same goes for you, midimachine. I've stopped answering those posts since SW came in, I think we can all do the same right about now.

Now, moving on to FL Studio questions.

I think, because that's the one that's recommended the most. For my part, I discovered FL through some friends in the Mario Paint Hangout (yes, there's a forum for Mario Paint users; NintendoCapriSun the LPer is also part of it). I used to be part of this forum until I switched to FL -- and a few Mario Painters had songs written on it.

Never turned back since. : )

Because it's a good program with good midi input, good automation, awesome midi parameter editing, and something called a "slide" and "portamento" function which doesn't have to be created in the synth that other programs haven't figured out yet.

Oh, and it's also cheaper and easier than most other "professional" DAWs out there.

Summary: Because it's good, easy, and not overly expensive for what it does.

I guess FL is expensive until FL 11+ is legally available for free to you. :D

Well, you have the option of volume envelopes.
And this is how it's done.

You can put that pattern in the playlist, and then turn the volume envelope down for that particular pattern only.

None that I know of. You should probably turn the instruments in that pattern down for that time period instead - if you're using the same instrument in multiple patterns for multiple purposes, then that can cause other problems. I wouldn't recommend doing that. (just in case that's what you were doing ^_^)

As well as the options given above, you could also turn down the velocities of the notes via the piano roll (assuming you've got note velocity hooked up to volume). Just go to the piano roll of the pattern in question, Ctrl+A, double click one of the notes, and turn the VEL knob down however much you want. You'll have to do that for each instrument in the pattern.

You could right-click the undo button to go directly to the undo list and click on the step above what you want to undo. That'll undo everything after the step you clicked. Aside from that, I got nothing.

There's a number of irreversible things you can do in FL. Sometimes they give you a warning like with the performance mode macro, but others they don't. I suggest playing around to figure out what is un-undoable that you're doing, then taking more caution with those types of actions.

General rule of thumb is that if you have to hit "okay" to do something, its likely irreversible....such as deleting channels or tracks.

Speaking of irreversible things: now this is something that happens on FL Studio that I wouldn't really have an issue with, I'd just like to know how to reverse it if I can.

There's a piece I dug up from my files. When I started it, I had Fruity Limiter on the master track. Now I've taken it off. The only automation clips I ever have are instrument volume envelopes and the main tempo envelope (no master volume envelope).

The master volume is at about 60% or 70%; I try to turn it up to 100% and it works for a time... but when I hit Play again, it automatically goes back down to 60/70%. I can hear it okay on my headset, but I'd like it at 100% so that the exported file won't be too soft...

Any idea how I can get around this?

Turn it up to 100%, then right-click on the knob and click "Init song with this position". That *should* work.

Wicked Ass Performance Idea

Okay so I have this idea in mind. Tell me if you think this would work.

I have an image of a live-stage performance using these tools:

- Laptop
- Novation Launchpad-S
- Akai MPK88
- Behringer CMD set up
- Scarlett 2i2

To do this all in one instance of FL:

- Run performance mode for custom improv intro to the set with the launchpad
- Run deckadance 2 as a plugin to fade into regular DJ mode with the CMD controllers
- Have a synth up the whole time for the MPK to do live key improv with performance mode and select songs being mixed in deckadance.

And then within deckadance have decks 1 and 2 be for regular mixing, and then 3 and 4 be for remixing tracks with intelligent cue points set up.

Tie that together with a custom DMX lighting show that I could design, and some QSC KW series speakers n subs for a sound system....and I think that might just be a performance worth seeing....IF.....IF I can figure out how to seemless do all that in once instance of FL with no instability.

Thoughts???

Footnote: The MPK would also need to control the fade ins and outs of deckadance, as well as control the synths parameters...also tabbing between different instruments with the control options on the launchpad so I'm not just using one synth the whole time.

I'm sure this has been asked before - but I'd have to look through a lot of posts to find it.

How do I execute a ritardando (gradual slowing of tempo) in FL Studio?
I love making music, but I'm not very savvy with the program.

Feedback is much appreciated!

projector program. Or a combination of the two. Just think that you get more out of an experience : out of say... Alice in wonderland movie spliced with Nemo backdrop on a huge screen than a
bunch of extremely expensive lights.

A good projector and backdrop would probably cost me about just as much. I sell DMX lights at my work so manufacturers sell me stuff at cost (about half of MAP pricing). But the sound and lighting part is least important. Most venues will have their own.

Speaking of expensive, how much do you think all that equipment would cost as a grand total?

Well ignoring cabling, power, software, and the laptop, here's the pricing breakdown for MAP pricing:

MPK88 = 700
Launchpad-S = 170
Scarlett2i2 = 150
CMD PL-1 = 100
CMD MM-1 = 150
Total: $1270
Total for me however will be around $700 cuz I get those special discounts.

Do you have some of that equipment already?

I have everything except the CMD controllers which havent hit the market yet.

What kinda show are you talking about?

It can be adapted for any genre, but in this case I would like to develop both a neurofunk and glitch hop set.

Better have a real good consistency playing in shows if I'd be investing in that. Personally I don't : see the point in using live synths unless I really know what I'm doing or it's a sit down concert.
From my experiences Fl rarely crashes due to synths. Then again I'm not plugging anything in.
But crashes happen quite often in live shows.. As long as you don't break into a sweat and feint
from nervousness, its not a huge issue to just reboot it real quick. That is if its simple enough to
reboot.

Well I wouldnt do a live show until I had practiced and gotten my side of things down, but I'm really tired of DJs and their standards and I want a performance thats more respectable on stage. Fading in and out takes near zero skill. Some people use a launchpad or maschine to trigger extra samples or effects but thats not enough for my satisfaction...which is where the performance mode and live synths come into play.

Since I'm here, I might as well ask the dumbest question ever.
What is midi? Is it another word for synth/effects hardware?

MIDI is just data for what youre doing on a controller. So when you press a key on a MIDI keyboard it sends the data (MIDI) which says how hard youre pressing the key, what key youre pressing, and for how long youre pressing it. Same goes for moving faders and rotaries, and hitting pads. So MIDI is just a name/standard for sending that kind of data.

There are non musical tasks that are also done using MIDI data, such as controlling lights.

i recommend going to the "channel" menu at the top, then to "add-one" and explore all the plugins, Poizone has some pretty good trancy sounds whereas Harmor has really powerful dubstep style sounds. I use those 2 plugins the most but they're not free. you can buy them off the image-line website though. just mess with the demos and see if you like them. anything that actually comes with FL Studio fruity edition usually sucks and i rarely use them.
