I've two question:
1. Some tracks (mostly synth) keep getting louder every time they're being played, like it builds up the
volume instead of having a steady sound. how do I fix it?
2. How do I make a full length composition?, all I've been able to do is make some short loops
but how do I put them together?, like making a 3 - 4 minutes composition. (not just 6 seconds loops)
Thank you :)
Two questions for two posts, eh?
Well, I'll do my best anyway.
1. Hard to answer without seeing the project, but... did you put any reverb or delays on the instruments? If you have reverbs or delays, they can increase in volume due to getting built up from the previous sounds. Aside from that, I'm not sure what would cause it.
2. Not really a FL-specific question, but... First of all, the way FL works is by using patterns - you can switch between them and put them into the arranger. That could be a problem with how you're composing - however, if you already know how to use multiple patterns, then it's more a matter of experience and listening to other people's music. Try to copy some aspects of what other people do - how do they use melodies? How do they order buildups and breakdowns in their music? Learning music theory is a good idea as well, and eventually compositional theory if you already know the basics of music theory.
Hope this was helpful!
