If you would like your rig/studio to be added to the slideshow please post a picture of your rig (preferably with you in it AND FL Studio visible), if you are shy then just your rig with FL Studio is also cool. Upload it to this thread in Looptalk:
FL Studio 9.6 is almost upon us. While testing it, here's something that happened to the FL Studio Guru, really!
Here's what the FL Studio 9.6 manual says about the Autosave / Autobackup function:
The Autosave function will create backup copies of the current project (and or any overwritten files including .flp, .fst, .zip etc) to the Browser > Backup folder.
The Backup folder is located in FL Studio's installation directory ..:Program Files (x86)Image-LineFL StudioDataBackup. If you want to recover the last autosave then use the option 'Revert to last autosave' from the File Menu OR select a project from the Browser > Backup folder. Autosaves are made according to the following settings and rules:
Never (just remind every 10 min) - No backup files are made. The reminder to save your project will appear in the Hint Bar if 10 minutes elapse without a manual save.
Rarely (every 15 minutes) - Backups are made on every manual save AND every 15 minutes UNLESS FL Studio is playing, then the autosave is postponed until the project is stopped.
Occasionally (every 10 minutes) - Backups are made on every manual save AND every 10 minutes UNLESS FL Studio is playing, then the autosave is postponed until the project is stopped.
Regularly (every 5 minutes) - Backups are made on every manual save AND every 5 minutes UNLESS FL Studio is playing, then the autosave is postponed until the project is stopped.
Frequently (every 5 minutes & before risky operations) - Backups are made on every manual save AND on critical operations AND every 5 minutes, even when FL Studio is playing and before adding plugins.
Questions about how to remove vocals from music tracks is one of the most common questions we see in Looptalk (...after 'When is the next version of FL Studio coming out!', 'how do I record from a microphone' and 'do you like my hair'). With inspiration from nucleon (thanks nuc) we bring you the tutorial you have been waiting for...
Routing summary: This project has an Audio Clip (that is the original music track) routed to Mixer Track 1. Track 1's Master send is deselected. Track 1 is then routed in parallel to Track 2 (Vocal Kill) and Track 3 (Bypass).
Registered FL Studio owners can download the project used in this tutorial from Looptalk here: Gimme the project!
NOTE: All vocal removal techniques do bad things to the original backing track and this one is no exception. Generally, if you are serious about obtaining a song without the vocals it's probably better to re-make it from scratch yourself. The phase cancellation process messes with the sound in some not-so nice ways.
We've been busy working on a new plugin 'Pitcher' (the name & appearance may change)...
Pitcher is the development name for Image-Line's new real-time pitch manipulation plugin. It can automatically detect and correct pitch based on the input audio OR respond to MIDI input for live OR Piano roll modulation of monophonic OR polyphonic notes to create harmonies.
The skin is also under revision, so it will probably look quite different when you see it next, but we thought you'd like a look anyhow :)
Linear Phase EQ (LP EQ) is often used by mastering engineers and also in plugins that need to split the frequency spectrum into bands for processing (such as Multi-band compressors). The Guru shows us two LP EQ options for FL Studio: 14-02-2012
