Anyone use fruity loops?

  1. Hey, just wondering if anyone is efficient at using fruity loops, got a few questions about the program need some help:)
     
  2. Yeah fruity loops is my shit, I'm self taught though so I don't know as much as I probably should.
     
  3. I make all my shit wit FL 9, massive / sylenths the shiyttt :smoke:

    Chem.ib'

    what do u need help with dude?
     
  4. Well I just started using it, the only thing I know how to do is make a track by using the samples in the packs, and I've messed around with the piano tool and stuff, but that's pretty much it. I just some help knowing what everything is, that's all:)

    ive been using it for a few years, i'm self taught as well, just trial and error and youtube videos pretty much.

    asking what 'everything is' is pretty general. we can't just run through and teach you the entire program. but if you have some specific questions we can try to help.

    the one thing i will say is to check out the mixer and play around with it, i didn't even know what the fuck the mixer was until i had been making music for months lol. yeah i was a total noob to music. but the mixer can make an average song sound awesome. one new technique ive been trying to implement is subtractive equalization, and i gotta say it works really really well and sounds really clean. i would probably suck at teaching if i tried to explain it but look it up (and you guys above me should check it out too if you dont already know about it).

    also thai is right, sylenth is the shit. nexus is nice too but way less customizable and it annoys me.
     
  6. Still trying to figure it out myself. Great program, lots of functionality, but takes a good minute to learn.
     
  7. to get other packs and stuff, is there no free way to get them? do you have to buy them?
     
  8. Sorry for the double post, but lets say I wanted the vocals to a track, I know how to upload another song, but how would I isolate the vocals and save that sample?
     
  9. there are plenty of free sample packs.

    i don't really get what you're asking in this last past here. are you talking about taking a song that has vocals in it and removing everything from it except the vocals? because as far as i know that's not really possible.
     
  10. What are other useful plug ins i could use?
     
  11. check out these videos to get the basics down.

  12. Ah nice thanks for the video
     
  13. I hope you bought the program and didn't download a cracked version...

    ...Support it..

    ..I want pics of a receipt, bill of sale, I also want pictures of you arm in arm with the cashier, the store (yes arm in arm with the store.)

    Common.. pics.

    I got a cracked version. so sue me. I'm not making any money off it anyway.
     
  15. You should have told me to take all those pics when I went to get it.
     

  16. What are you? A cop? :rolleyes:
     
  17. Lets say your using a kick , snare, hihat (just to make this easy) first select each one seperately then right click in the mixer and add each one to a channel (kick, ch1 snare, ch2 , etc etc for each vst / sample you use) Then once there in the mixer add paremetrix EQ2 to each one, this makes all of your instruments come to life, if its a hi hat raise 6 and 7, snare raise 3 and 4, and kick 1 and 2. Honestly this makes your song sound 10x "more vibrant" Then you could add FL fast LP and automate the cutoffs for build ups and etc.

    Once you master the basics, I would find a good VST online thats free and master it. When I say master it dont DL 10 - 20 and mess around with each for a day or 2. If you wanna get the most outta your vsts you gotta learn what ever single knob does and look up different OSC,s (wave forms, oscillators) Each vst will have atleast 4 oscs to pick from and could even have 100s if its more advanced. Then look up LFOs and how to automate the cutoffs, resonance, pitch, wt-position and etc.

    Edit : all the green in the picture is LFO automation, green is Envelope automation (could shape your wave form even more), and the yellow are effects. Lets say you put an LFO on the cutoff, you then get a dub step wobble if you use a regular sine wave at -24

  19. i might have to check out massive. i'm getting kinda bored of sylenth's sounds.

    also subtractive eq is cool, it's like what thai said with the parametric eq, except in this case say you're using a hi hat and you wanna have the high frequencies come through. well instead of boosting the high frequencies, you lower the high frequencies of the other instruments, making a 'hole' for the hi hat to fill.

    that's what i've been trying lately and i like it a lot more, boosting can mess up the sound and cause distortion and stuff.
     
  20. ive tried to get into it. i just dont have the patience to learn the program. and i know nothing of music theory so i wont be able to make anything good anyway.
