how are your headphones connected? through the interface or through your normal pc output?
also what interface do you use?

you know how you can adjust the volume of windows with the loudspeaker in the lower right corner of windows? that doesnt effect fl studio if you have it running on the asio drivers. so my first hint would be to set that to maximum volume software wise and regulate your volume with the volume knob on the interface. I also would connect my phones through the interface as well so you have a constant frame of reference because the D/A Converters in your interface are 100x better than those on your shitty onboard audio.

tell me if you've had sucess! ;)

Hey guise...

I started using this software not long ago and I'm having a trouble with a plugin called VSK Overture (Orchestral instruments). It basically makes some kind of static noise after every note that has a high attack.

Here I made a little video to show you http://puu.sh/ew13V/b4e61ff116.mp4

I used this plugin in one of my last songs because it's amazing, but when I use it with high attack notes it just sounds bad and my song sounds like broken in that part.

I really have no idea how to fix it and I couldn't find anything on google so... I just found this thread and thought it was the best place to ask about my problem. If any of you know can help me with this it will be appreciated a lot :L

I'll be watching the thread

Oh my. I got quite embarassing problem! I think this shouldn't be a hard problem but I'm out of ideas! So, my problem is that one of my Poizone instruments volume is slowly fading out, but I can't understand why!

I have checked ALL possible ways, which can affect this, like mixer volume, channel volume, note velocities, all kind of plugins that I use, like free filter cut off. Also nothing changes when I watch the interface of this instrument in poizone.. I don't get it! What else this could affect!?

Also, notes continue playing. They don't end when it's fading, so it's not about reverb or something.

Oh my god... Oh forget my question :D It was LFO rate! The amount was SO little, so it lasts really long and the fade in again. Problem solved.

I have another pretty simple question. I have a new Effects plugin (just the .dll file). It's CMT Bitcrusher, and it just came with the .dll file. I put it into Plugins<Fruity<Effects and gave it its own folder, named after the file (CMT_Bitcrusher_2). I used the mixer in FL Studio to import it (More, Fast Scan) and it appeared. However, when I try to put it into the mixer, it says:

Sorry, this plugin cannot be found.
If it has to be registered, make sure it has been registered properly.

Or something like that. Help?

It is. It already appeared when I performed a fast scan. But it can't be added.

Try putting the .dll file in the VstPlugins folder that FL Studio creates in Program Files on your hard disk by default. That's the main folder for FL Studio to load 3rd party plugins from.

FL checks if there's a license code for any plugin in those directories, and since it's never gonna find one for a third-party plugin it's generating that error.

you should try putting it in C:/Program Files (x86)/Vstplugins, which FL is a directory FL makes when you install it (if it wasn't already there).

Where can I find the button that makes dubstep bass? I've looked all over FL Studio and only managed to find a few synths with lots of knobs but no dubstep bass button.

No, that's the button that prints 'urgay' on the screen. I'm looking for the dubstep bass button.

Speaking of Dubstep, I'm questioning my style of Dubstep, if you can consider it dubstep at all.
Essentially all I'm doing is pitch shifting a Hard Saw Bass. And although it gives of a general sound of a drop, I'm looking into other ways of mixing dubstep. I've heard of a Modulated Bass, is there anyone who can help me achieve this effect?

inb4 yes, FL is my DAW, otherwise I wouldn't be here.

tbh this is more of a general sound design question rather than FL specific. try some googling, there are lots of tutorials that are both general and FL related

Do you know SeamlessR?
He create a lot of dubstep tutorials, using exclusively Fruity, Sytrus and Harmor... might be a good starting point.

If you're looking to create a wubwubthingie, a basic recipe could be:
-A saw at low octave,
-Triangle shaped LFO modulating a lowpass filter (possibly more parameters)
-Automate or change the rate of the lfo with temposynced ratio (1/4, 1/8, 1/12,1/16)
Add a good amount of distortion, and effects to your liking and voilà.

This can be done in thirteen seconds within 3xosc or WASP (Image line has a thing for controversial names, isn't it?)
But you'll get better result if you invest some time understanding the basics of sytrus and harmor.

What's wrong with this? Pretty good synths considering you made them with 3xOsc only.
