Get started making music with the popular one-stop shop for music production, FL Studio. Author Garrick Chow shows you how to set up your inputs and outputs and then moves straight into building drum tracks, layering in other instruments and samples, recording MIDI, and creating patterns with the program's step sequencer. He also covers the Playlist window, using it to combine patterns and arrange your song with pattern clips, as well as edit audio and automate volume. Finally, Garrick moves to the Mixer, where he demonstrates how to add plugins, set up signal routing for effects like EQ and reverb, and export your final files.
(music playing) Hello, I'm Garrick Chow and welcome to Up and Running with FL Studio. In this course, I'm going to cover the basic knowledge and skills you'll need to have under your belt in order to use this incredibly powerful digital audio workstation. We'll start with a tour of the FL Studio Interface to get our bearings, and I'll show you how to show and hide the tools and windows you'll be using throughout this course. From there, we'll follow through the path of a common workflow by starting with the Step Sequencer and Channel window, where I'll show you how to create patterns by programming beats and recording MIDI keyboard performances.
Then we'll combine our patterns together in the Playlist window and begin to edit and assemble them into a song. And once we have the sections of the song combined together, we'll move to the mixer to record a live performance, as well as to apply effects to our tracks. And we'll wrap up with a look at some of the most commonly used effects and how to apply them in FL Studio. By the end of this short course, you should have the information necessary to start creating and editing your own projects. So, let's get started with Up and Running with FL Studio.
