New fruityloops user, i'd appreciate if you could answer these:
How do I get Nexus, and how do I get it on fruityloops?
What is vanguar?
And what is z3ta?
Nexus, vanguard and z3ta are all VSTi's, virtual studio instruments, they're basically synthesizer plugins for studio software so you can make your own synth sounds in them (Nexus is a rompler, but forget about that right now). Your gonna have to buy them in order to get them, Nexus and Vanguard are made by ReFX, and Z3ta is made by Cakewalk.
To get a VST that you've downloaded (This is a good website to find free VSTs) or bought into FL Studio, you have to either install the VST or unpack the VSTs .dll file into your computer's VST folder, usually in [C:\Program Files\VstPlugins\], once you've done that, open up FL and go one [Channels > Add one > More...] and click the refresh button down the bottom, the new VST(s) should show up in read, double click the VST you want to use (or check the box if you want it to show up in your [Channels > Add one] List) and voila.
Before you do anything to do with z3ta or vanguard, I'd suggest getting the basics in FL down first. Youtube has a healthy amount of tutorial videos for beginners.
i sound lik a tutorial
