I use Fl studio, and 'Edison' its audio editing plugin can't edit more than one audio file simultaneously. Software like 'Audacity' can do multi-track editing but audacity can't be used as an external plugin in other DAWS. Is there any vst that will do the job of Audacity, since I still want to use Fl studio as my platform?

  • Can't you open several instances of Edison inside FL Studio? – José David Aug 7 '16 at 1:12

You can accomplish this by using the "playlist" where all of the tracks are assembled to form the timeline of the song. Simply load all of your audio files and even midi onto it and you can slice, arrange, add automation and all of the effects you could desire to them.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more!

  • I dont know if this is still a problem in fl studio, but back in the days when i used it. I was not able to edit in playlist view without rasterisation. Even if I deactivated rasterisation for the playlist view I still had a rasterisation where for example the cut tool will snap in (it was very small, but still prevented me to cut at the desired point) . Maybe this got fixed or I was just too stupid to use the program correctly – Olli Dec 6 '19 at 11:48
  • @Olli Thanks for pointing that out, it's interesting to know. I just checked it out on FL 20.5 and it still is snapping to a specific measurement which is roughly 1/2 - 1/3 of a centisecond each. – Transverse Audio Dec 7 '19 at 2:08

You see,a single instance of 'Edison' in FL Studio is not meant for multitrack audio editing. I guess, you want a sequencer where you can edit multiple tracks simultaneously. The 'Playlist' in FL Studio, sequences (plays) all elements of the project to make the final song. The Playlist window is a stack of multi-purpose 'Clip Tracks' that can hold Patterns Clips, Audio Clips and Automation Clips.
