I'm looking to make something using a drum. But, I don't have any sort of drum sounds aside from the stock FL stuff. What should I be looking for, to get the rock/prog rock drum sound I so desire?

Look for some decent sample packs. If you have some money to spare, look into getting Vengeance Essential. Otherwise just look up some free samples. I get most of mine from DNB wiki, The Parathile Drum Pack is my own, and has some cool realistic sounding Drum sounds in it :)

I'm in the middle of a collab with someone and they used a filter I've never used before.
I've tried to find it, but no luck. He's not online much, so I can't talk to him and ask him

Some one tell me where to find this:

Also if you know where to find it, go step by step. I'm a little bit of a nub.

Well, first I googled moogish filter, because that's what the screenshot suggests it's called. First hit was an audio blog thing, so I searched for 'moog' there. Among the first ten results was a link to a VST called Moogofilter.

It looks like a basic synth.

Click on your sound in the sequencer, then click on a channel in the mixer and press CTRL + L

turn it down, it's probably clipping. In FL, make sure the level meters never hit the red zone.

The master volume? Wouldn't that cause the side effect of people having to turn their volume up to listen to it? I hate having to do that haha. Any other way or is that it? I tested it and it does work.

the whole process of getting your music as loud as you can, without going over 0db is an art of it's own, and is called the Mixing of the track. Generally includes EQing sounds that don't contribute to the song and instruments that conflict with eachother. Also a big part is dynamic compression, usually the use of a compressor on individual instruments to make them have a higher average volume which gives them a higher perceived volume. I could not go over exactly what mixing is or how to do it effectively in a single post. Your better off searching youtube or google for more info.

Oh and once you've rendered your song, open up a new project, insert an audio clip and open up your song in it, then paste it down in the playlist. In the audio clip controls check the 'normalize' box and then re-render the song. This makes sure that your song peaks at 0db and cannot get any louder without clipping.

Hello. Can someone tell me what envelopes are and what they do? I know they change some properties of the sound, but they have some default, like: Envelope A changes this, Envelope B changes other things etc.?
And other thing, there is a way to change de tempo while the song play? I want say: at 00:00 - 00:10 the tempo is 140, at 00:10 - 00:40 the tempo is 160, and then the tempo change back to 140?

I'm sure you're talking about the basic ADSR envelope. Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release.

Attack is the initial volume control when playing a note, as well as how long it takes for the note to reach it's peak volume. Shorter attacks are for quicker notes while longer are for notes with a "fade in" like pads or strings. Decay is the point going from it's maximum to the level of the sustain. Sustain is the volume when the note is held, and release is the "fade out" of the note.

And other thing, there is a way to change de tempo while the song play? I want say: at 00:00 - 00:10 the tempo is 140, at 00:10 - 00:40 the tempo is 160, and then the tempo change back to 140?

Doing that requires using a automation clip in the pattern roll to set the tempo to those speeds, it could be instantaneous or it could be gradual.

Yeah, but that would take quite alot of Trial and Error using Automation clips. Right Click on the Tempo Gauge and Choose edit events. You can see the number of bars on the top so you can work out what bar it is you're upto and where you want the change. Along the side You'll see the Bpm Numbers, so its much easier than the Automation Clip.

Hope it helps.

Well, thanks for the information. One more thing: when I open FL, the Master window appears, and it shows "Ahead" Envelope. What it does?
The "Attack" and "Release" Envelopes in the same Master window have the propertie "Curve": what this means too?

If you know about other type of envelopes, please tell me, I want know.

You're looking at the Limiter, which I don't toy with much. I was talking about the ADSR you find in the "INS" tab on the channel settings window. That envelope is always there, although most of the VST's have their own built in. You might have to ask someone else about the limiter, or refer to the help file.

Yes I was talking about the ADSR of the INS tab, but when I opened FL again, I saw the Master window and got this doubt. Thank you =]

Yeah, it's all about playing around and learning it. People make some interesting sounds doing things like that.

You mean like, One Instrument/Sample Fades into something else?

In FL Just right click the volume of the Thing you want to fade and select Automation Clip. Goto the pttern sequencer and you'll see the clip and a line inside a box. The high up the line, the Higher the volume. So adjust how you want it by dragging the length of the box or the height of the Line in the clip.

Ok, i'm sure this question has been asked quite a bit, but i never got to see it on here and i dont like to flip through over 90 pages to find it, but how do I record my voice and put it on FL studio 7 XXL, I have a mic and microsoft vista (yes, i hate vista too) but I've been wanting to make some songs with words in it, so if anyone could be as so kind to help me with my question, it'd be much appreciated.

Try a program called audacity. Record, Export as .wav

Open in FL using wavtraveller or audio clip or whatever you feel like using.
