There are numerous sounds You can get from the FL Studio's basic installation. In version 12.1.2, You can find a fine piano on Fl-keys generator (in the plugin browser, go to Installed > generators > Fruity). There are many piano sounds, through which You can list by clicking on the < and > arrows on the top right corner of the FL Keys window. ...

According to the manual, the "stereo separation" filter (control) only increases or decreases existing stereo separation, so if you find that the knob increases stereo width, then the filter's input was not completely mono. Such stereo width corresponds to the "s" aka "side" component in m/s (mid/side) encoded audio. The Fruity Stereo Enhancer effect's ...

MainStage is the standard, especially in musical theater pits. Another option, if you don't have a MacBook, is Ableton Live, though it's expensive and I think it's hard to use. I personally prefer to use hardware synths. The software synths require a high end computer in order to not choke on the sheer amount of data. Even using the most powerful laptops ...

Most of the suggestions in the comments are good ones. However, let me add a few suggestions of my own here that might help steer you in the right track: Do some research on your desired sound All of the artists, producers, and so on, that produce the sound you want to make -- How do they do it? Ask this question and do the research around the subject, and ...

If your characterization of "white noise" is somewhat accurate, you are out of luck. You can get various bits of noise from unstable power supply and inverters for step-up DC/DC converters and ground loops. But those will be whining or humming. Broadband noise, in contrast, is almost sure to originate from the analog circuitry of your microphone, and it ...

A (internal) sound card and an (external) audio interface are basically the same thing technically, just in a different format - so it's not correct to say in general that an external sound card produces better sound quality (though in particular cases, it may be true). Also, are you ever recording live instruments, or using your computer to perform live? ...

With an analogue mixer and a 2 input computer audio interface there's no way of processing each of the independent mixer's channels in the DAW. The issue is not that the mixer is analogue (most of the entry level mixers with embedded audio interface are analogues mixers), but that you don't have any way of feeding each of the 10 channels independently to ...

Keep in mind that though there are a ton of different programs out there for this sort of things, they have many things in common -- virtual instruments, tracks, piano rolls/midi editing, audio effects chains... Much of the difference between them could come down to personal preference on their workflow/layout instead, or as mentioned in another answer, ...

I've tried lots of DAWS and Fl studio was the easiest to understand at first use. So that is what I use till date. Here are the benefits Fl studio has over other software: Free life time updates. It has the most video tutorials online You can set it to act like any other software because of its very flexible workflow. The Mac version of Fl studio ...

If you were to compare music creation programs with video editing programs, it would go something like this: You could think about Garage Band as the equivalent to iMovie. A simple consumer-grade program that produces good sounding music without much effort. It's not a program professionals use for music creation, though, since it's very limited compared ...

Short answer: no. Bluetooth was not designed for live sound. Bluetooth audio latency is in the region of 150 ms. If you happen to have an apt-X-enabled bluethooth device the latency is 30-40 ms, which from what I understand is as low as you can get. This might be acceptable for watching video, although just barely. For live sound (PA) use it is completely ...

If you want to edit the volume sensitivity of your MIDI Controller, go to Options>MIDI Settings or Press F10. If you click on the button shown here, you can edit the curve of sensitivity. This is the default. And if you want no sensitivity, you can do something like this.

I've been a bit around the block and here is my story. I used to produce a lot of music in my home studio, so I wanted to bring those exact sounds with me live. For quite a long time my setup consisted of either Logic Pro, some softsynths and a midicontroller. Later Logic Pro was replaced with Mainstage. The possibilities where endless. So was the risk of ...

The core of a successful live show, in my experience, is the same regardless of what equipment is used or what type of show it is: preparation. Whatever controller(s) you have you want to learn like the back of your hand and practice with them daily. Setting up mappings, presets, defaults, and saved sessions that are ready to go as quickly as possible is an ...

I ran into the same problem. There are troubleshooting options in the channel settings windows in FL Studio. The only way I was able to get the correct tone (the same that I get in Reaper with Bias) is to select the "Use Fixed Sized Buffers" option in the processing tab.

This could be a hardware driver problem. Do you have up to date drivers from your hardware. Also look at updating your video drivers as they can sometimes have an effect on your sound (as strange as that sounds).

FL Studio is cool. It is fundamentally different from garage band because garage band is an arranging and composing tool for live feeds of instruments or making drum loops and adding samples. FL Studio has a beat matrix (starts as 16 boxes each representing one beat) and you can build up custom drum loops this way. It is also possible to arrange in FL ...

Sound Card (internal or external) and Audio Interface are all names for the same thing. Years ago, the onboard sound of a computer was limited to warning beeps (though you could sometimes cheat even this into outputting recognisable though lo-fi music). So you put a SoundBlaster into one of the motherboard slots. Then computers started having onboard ...

This bell sound is made by tubular bells, also known as concert or orchestral chimes.

You might try a collaborative website such as bandlab. It is an online daw that you can share with others and work on songs together. It also has a chat function so you could ask alot of questions of folks who do the type of music you are interested in. For me to get over the hump from fun noodling to finishing a song I had to establish a process, a ...

Yes, you can! shift+click on all the channel selectors that you want to copy (they will light up with a green border when selected). You can also double-click on one of the channel select buttons and it will select (highlight) all of them. To copy the midi in each channel selected press ctr+c To paste the midi into a different pattern, press ctr+v.

I'm posting and self-answering because my Google searches only led me to specific Ableton channel issues (I'm using FL Studio), lightshow issues (I'm not concerned with the lightshow feature), or users who can't get any lights to light at all (my lights were mostly fine). The answer is kind of obvious but I hope it helps someone: Update the Launchpad's ...

What you're really asking is: "how does a compressor work?" -- there are lots of great YouTube videos that explain the basic concepts, including all the controls in Fruity Compressor, so I would start there. If you like learning by experimentation, though, it might be more instructive to use Fruity Limiter instead (using the compressor controls by clicking ...

Depending on what keyboard you have and what software is comes with, it is likely that the easiest way to get the sequenced tracks into FL Studio would be to export the tracks from the keyboard through USB to your computer system as individual wav files, and import them into Fl Studio.

Maybe the "white noise" is fan noise from your computer? If so, putting some distance between computer and microphone and letting the microphone face away from the computer (a cardioid microphone usually has a marked sensitive side, with the least sensitivity being just opposite) might help.

The fact this happens in various different software packages shows you it isn't caused by them, so no, don't bother buying a new DAW package. I'd lay odds on it being because you have a USB mic plugged directly into a laptop - this is rarely a good idea if you want even semi-decent sound quality. So get yourself an audio interface. If you do want to ...

You should go for ab interface as its quality of sound is much better not because of the sound card but because of evrything it does like zero latency , frequency check. If you use your inbuilt soundcard it will crash sometime soon u might have to reset your device every now and then.its better to use audio interface. Go for presonus audio box or focusrite ...

I totally forgot about the Fruity Limiter that FL Studio automatically adds to the master of any new project. It was boosting the gain as it does by default!
