How do i add more of these? i think you would need a lot more of these to make songs.
well i answered this in your other thread but since it will be locked I put it here for future pppl

you have to change the beats per minute

if you want to make full songs you have to use piano roll not that

oh, piano role? Can u explain what piano role is exactly, and how to use it, ty.

XD - I'm only trolling man, I posted almost the exact same thing in the Reason thread - I would imagine though that where you were actually very cool with your answer - Ted will lose his frickin' mind...

I really hope you connected your keyboard trhough MIDI IN and not MIDI OUT. Mine works fine and if I remember right FL 3.5 had the compability to run MIDI synths.

Mmm, 'nother question. What SOUNDS would you use for ambient. Like, SimSynth, FPC, etc.?

Well...The most common.

I would believe this is the first time forumwise, third time otherwise- I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

this is for Fruityloops not general music questions, but since you said we were good then well.

File-Import-Library

find music file, to to get it just press like Ctrl+L to get the library then well the rest is self explanatory

Well, I just downloaded FL 6 DEMO the other day. Pretty nice program, I must say. But there are some problems. Like you said earlier, it is bad for orchestra.Is there any other good program out there that really focuses on orchestra music (having good trumpets, french horns, trombones, etc.)? Or are there just other great programs to look into as well?

As well, the program is still pretty difficult to understand, but I'm going to try and fiddle with it to learn it by myself, like you suggested. But I've read previous posts, and was wondering, are there any vital parts of FL that I need to know in order to make good songs? (like snap)

My other concern was plug-ins, VST's and samples. What exactly do VST's and plug-ins do? How can I reach them (or use them) in the program? Also, what are the best places to find extra samples, VST's, etc.? I can't go to their website, as everything there is subscribers only. Are there ones that I REALLY need to get, or should I just search google when I think I need something?

Sorry if this is way too many questions. :-P I have just been interested in music creating for a long time, and I really wish to make great songs. One last question before I go though. Which package is the better buy? Producer, Express, FL Version, or XXL? I just want your imput to see if the extra stuff in each package really matters.

Thanks again. This should, and hopefully will be my last post of n00biness.

I was about to ask the same thing:

I'm real new to FL, and I was just pissin around and made a short loop. Just wondering how I stretch that loop to be around 1minute....maybe longer, so that when I save it to MP3, it will auto-loop into a short song, if that made any sense?

Can someone help me out? Thanks.

In FL and other music makers, you piece the song together by making 'patterns'.
So, instead of having like, a 2 second loop on one patteren, you can make multiple patterns, and then arrange them on the sequencer.

As shown:

Thanks, makes sense, also it seems you have to hit the little "song" button for it to take effect in the playlist wondow.
