With the release of the latest FL Studio Guru video, we have reached the 20 video mark.

 

If you haven't checked it out yet then the Free FL Studio Guru series aims to cover:

 

  1. Tutorial videos that cover the commonly asked questions in Looptalk. We’ll try to keep these around 3 minutes.
  2. Top Tip videos that cover those ‘Power user’ shortcuts and features that really make FL Studio fly.
  3. Blogs about the music production, technology, software and anything else we think is cool and relevant to the producing musician.

In this tutorial we explore the effects of the interpolation settings on the live audio from Sampler Channels & Audio Clips.

 

 

Interpolation is a curve fitting process that computes intermediate sample 'amplitude' data between the known sample points (filling in the gaps). This will reduce aliasing when samples are transposed.

 

 Interpolation is only used when the pitch is transposed. Like most things, interpolation uses some CPU power, so FL Studio gives you the option to have different live and rendered interpolation settings.

 

So what about other plugins?

 

VST, Dx & FL Native plugins (synths & samplers) may or may not have their own internal interpolation settings (sometimes called over-sampling).

 

If you check Sytrus for example you will see it has its own Live (Draft) and Render settings. All good plugins interpolate/oversample or whatever, but some just don't show these settings to the user.

 

To make sure plugins DO put their best foot forward when rendering, use the "HQ for all plugins" on the Render dialog and the select "Notify about rendering mode" on the Wrapper settings.

 

To download the project and plugin used in this tutorial visit this Looptralk thread.

 

Enjoy!

The FL Extension box from Image Line brings more than 75 additional plugins and product upgrades from the successful FL Studio library into retail stores. Buy an FL Extension box in-store, choose and download your FL Extension product on-line.

 

FL Studio Extension Box

Pick your FL Extension - more than 75 to choose from!

 

Consumer research conducted by Image Line showed that 61% of customers buying FL Studio and plugins from a retail store were aware that online purchases were available. Reasons cited for buying in a physical shop included not having a credit card and not trusting online shopping. Of the in-store shoppers, 74% said they would buy the FL Extension product if it were available. Interestingly, 54% of download customers also said they would buy the FL Extension product as it was seen as more convenient than using a family/friend’s credit card or bank-wire method.


Choose from 75+ products with 1 box: In light of this research, Image Line saw a strong opportunity for the FL Extension product to bring increased sales to Image Line’s retail partners and greater choice to in-store customers. The key advantage is that the addition of a single SKU allows retail partners to sell any Image Line product previously only available for purchase on-line.  


Image Line offers over 75 downloadable products, including product upgrades. The FL Extension box gives retail partners the opportunity to participate in the hugely successful Image Line product portfolio and for in-store customers to buy these download products from a trusted retail establishment.

Box graphics:
Based on input from retail partners, the box graphics are designed to indicate  the product choices and not just a single product in the box. The box reverse-side text explains the details of the system, including how to combine several boxes to get a wider choice of download options.   


How it works: Retailing for $99 USD each, the FL Extension box will contain a code that will unlock a range of downloadable plugins, products and upgrade options for registration. After purchasing the FL Extension box, the customer goes online and chooses the product they want to download and unlock. If a customer needs to unlock higher value products, they simply purchase more boxes in-store.
For example:

FL Extension Box addition

 

  • Buy 1 box and choose from: Sakura, Sawer, Toxic Biohazard, Poizone, Gross Beat, any 3 standard sample CD’s, Deckadance House Edition, upgrade FL Studio Fruity to Producer Edition,  etc.
  • Buy 2 boxes and choose from: Maximus, Sytrus, Varazdin Orchestral sounds, upgrade FL Studio Fruity to Signature Edition, Deckadance Club Edition, FL Studio Producer Edition, etc.

 

Maximizing customer satisfaction: The FL Extension box eliminates buyer’s remorse and compatibility issues. Customers can try out any  downloadable demo and test the product works on their computer. Importantly, the customer can confirm they are choosing the product that meets their needs and expectations.


When the customer is ready, they can use their FL Extension box to unlock the download from a demo to the fully working version. It’s the ideal try before you buy retail product. To see the products available online visit the Image Line shop - http://shop.image-line.com.

 

Availability: FL Extensions will be available at all leading FL Studio stockists (April 30th, 2010).
