FL Studio is one of the world's most popular and exciting music production systems. Everything you need in one package to compose, arrange, record, edit, mix and master professional quality music..
What can FL Studio do?
- Audio editing and manipulation including pitch correction, pitch shifting, harmonization, time-stretching, beat-detection & slicing, audio warping and standard audio manipulation (cut/paste etc).
- Automate most interface and all plugin parameters by recording, drawing, and using spline-based automation curves or automation generators with formula-based control of links.
- Be hosted in other DAWs as a VST or connected through ReWire.
- Live music performance including video effect visualization.
- Mix and remix audio, including application of real-time audio effects such as delay, reverb & filtering.
- Multi-track audio recording.
- Record & play MIDI input recording from keyboards, drum pads and controllers.
- Sequencing and arranging.
- Synthesizer & effect plugin hosting (VST 32 & 64 bit, DX and FL Native format)
One of the great features of the FL mixer is that every insert has a built in Parametric EQ. No need to instantiate a plugin if you want a quick and dirty low cut. Swap left and right channels in a stereo signal with one click, and the same goes for polarity. Plugin Delay Compensation is available for third party plugins if needed. Multiple views are available in the options view tab for those of us that want a wide mixer or for alternate placement of mixer inserts.
It has been my experience that FL rarely crashes, and if it does a third party plugin is usually to blame. That being said, every third party vendor software that I have used within FL has worked without any issues. Be it hardware or software, FL will ‘play nice’. Once more, how many of us were working in another DAW just to have a hardware/software conflict that derailed the creative process for hours? Few conflicts in FL means more music output at the end of your day.
Perhaps not apparent from a glance, here are some of the FL 10 features that you just can’t live without. Slicex is the FL audio slicing tool with quantizing features. The audio is cut and each slice is sent to the piano roll and triggered by different notes. Such a great tool for tightening or mangling audio. Edison is the FL audio editor. It is one of the most powerful FL plugins with a plethora of tools to manipulate audio. There are too many features in Edison to be discussed here, but perhaps in a future installment. Direct Wave is the FL sampler. The perfect tool for manipulating samples and setting up velocity triggered sections of a sample library. A purchase of this plugin can unlock additional functionality, which is well worth the investment.
