Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning FL Studio.
If you're a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files for this course. We'll be working on the same project throughout the majority of this course, and I've included versions of it at various stages. I didn't include a version for every single movie, but I did want to include key versions where I either imported or recorded a sound that you won't be able to duplicate on your own. The files themselves are named by the chapter and movie number they appear in. Now, the files are also zipped up. To use them, right-click on them and choose Extract All. Be careful that you don't just double- click on the ZIP file here in the Windows, where it looks like you have access to the files, but if I try to open this project right now, you'll see that I'm getting this message that some data files are missing.
Instead, make sure you right-click on the ZIP file and choose Extract All, then click Extract. That extracts all of the files properly, and then you can double-click the project file to open it in FL Studio. Also, be sure to keep all the contents of the project together; otherwise, you may end up with missing sounds or error messages.
