I don't know if this question has been asked already, but:

How and from where I can get more instruments into my FL 6? (A link to get them wouldn't mind) Thanks in advance.

Download a VST, soundfont, or instrument sample anywhere on the internet.

Configure, rape with effects, and piano roll away.

If you need clarification on how to install them, tell me.

Either synchronize your beat to the sample, or use Fruity Slicer.

Hey, I've tried the FL7 demo, and I'm liking it but is the basic idea that, you build your song in parts, (those patterns) and then link them together with other patterns?

If so how do you link these patterns together?

Also my patterns are 12 'blocks' long. Is there any way to increase that or is that only on the demo version?

You dont necessarily Link them together. You create patterns, then place them in the playlist. Organize them from there to create a song. After making pattern 1, click pattern 2 on the playlist to start a new pattern.

Also my patterns are 12 'blocks' long. Is there any way to increase that or is that only on the demo version?

Yes, Either A) Use the piano roll (Right click on your channel and select "send to piano roll"
Or B) If it's drums or something the piano roll way can get annoying for that, so the top left of the sequencer there is a little box with a -- in it. Or in your case a 12.... Turn that up to make your patterns longer.

Is there a way to make a individual sound or a beat fade out then fade back in?

And is there a way to make the song a normal slow paced beat with the temp thing but then later in the song make it go faster without moving the tempo at all?

Open up the playlist, and then make your patterns there. Each block uses the patterns you create on the stepsequencer.

Use automation. That's a bit more complicated, so look it up :P You make automation clips on your playlist, but at the bottom section. You can do this with tempo too, but it can get messy :P

So, say for the first layer you have a basic beat with a kick on every beat. You'd make that with your stepsequencer, then on the playlist each block you draw on that layer means that that sequence will play. So now say you want some snare drums to come in a little later. Go to the next layer on the playlist and make a snare drum sequence. Then on you playlist, make that pattern come in the third bar. Basically, just do that with all your sounds and you should get something to come out =)

hey, im sorta new to fl studio and i just got a few quick questions. first off, how do you make certain instruments or the entire song fade in or out? like at the end of the song, how do you make it slowly quiet down? because i am making a song that would end perfectly like that. also, how do you speed up in the middle of the song?
thank! redcru92

Well to speed up in the middle place the nodes closer together. As for fading out at the end either find a
sound pack that does that or mess with the nodes individualy with the button right by the keyboard. Each bar is the volume

Well the nodes are on the soundboard which is the thing with at start up has snare, hi hat, clap, etc. Nodes are the rectangles to the right of the names. if you look in the upper corner of the soundboard you see keyboard and to the left of it the button you looking for

Hey I need a shitload of help with effects.
I don't even know where to start but I need all the basics. I know how to create and use automation clips and can use them to change pitch and volume and thats about it so any help you guys could give me would be awesome,

Also I'm still really new to Fruity Loops and electronica in general so if you could check out my audio and maybe give me some pointers it'd be greatly appreciated.

Well, since the search gave me a big angry face because "fruity loops tutorials"
was too long of a search, and "FL: Main" didn't get any results, I'm going to have
to ask for some help here. :P

I would like some beginner fruity loops tutorials, something that will be able to
teach sombody who just turned the program on, and doesnt have any clue at all
what is going on.

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Sorry for not searching harder, its just so much easier to ask.

This site has some nice tutorials about FL, most of the basics you can find out by just messing around a bit and reading some of the help files in the program.

That looks like it has a lot of info, but its not really laid out in a way that gives me a "start-to-finish" lesson.

I bookmarked it, but are there any other resources I can use that are more noob-friendly?
