In this instalment I discuss sidechaining in the FL Studio Mixer. Sidechain sends were introduced with FL Studio 9, so if you are using an earlier version, time to grab an update.

 

 

Download the project shown in this tutorial here in Looptalk, I have added some extensions to show the effect of the sidechain more clearly.

 

In this tutorial I explain what sidechaining is and how it works in the FL Studio Mixer. I sidechain a KICK to Fruity Limiter and use that to pump the volume of a PAD sound (sustained chord) routed through Fruity Limiter.

NOTE: Sidechaining is just another term (and use) for multiple-input effect plugins, FL Studio supports both multiple-input and multiple-output plugin instruments and effects.

 

Other uses for multi-input effects are things like vocoding, see Vocodex or Mid/Side stereo encoding or decoding, see Fruity Stereo Shaper.

Of course, the most common use is seen in multiple-output instruments like FPC or Slicex, where you can route each drum pad or slice to a unique mixer track for separate effects processing.

 

Regards Scott.

With a flurry of videos we welcome you to the FL Studio Guru blog. We will be sharing with you:

  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.

Today I’d like to alert you to a great video about Audio Myths posted on YouTube by Ethan Winer (below left) of RealTraps (makers of sound control solutions for studios). Ethan & co-presenters cover such issues as placebo effects in audio, loudness vs quality, 'scam' equipment, dithering, expensive vs cheap soundcards and more...oh yes it's about 58 minutes long, so get the popcorn out :)

 

 

Of particular interest to many home producers will be the section on Cheap vs Expensive soundcards, that starts at 41m:18s if you want to jump to it. Surely you need to drop $2000 on a 'professional' audio inerface if you want quality audio recordings, right?

 

The video contains excerpts from a workshop given at the 2009 Audio Engineering Society conference. You can learn more about the AES on their website. Enjoy!

 

To discuss this bog visit this Looptalk thread...

Visit LoopTalk to see the FL Studio Guru thread with downloads and more! :)

This is the first of two videos that will look at setting up PDC in FL Studio. PDC is required when plugins introduce unwanted, internal processing delays that causes their audio to go out of sync with the rest of the project.

In FL Studio 9, PDC setup has been made much simpler with the 'Create Submix to' function on the Mixer menu. When you use this function, the currently selected Mixer track 'steals' all the Mixer tracks that were routed TO the track you select from the menu. If you choose Master, then all tracks routed there go to the selected Mixer track, then you can add a PDC compensating delay to that track.

 

Check out the online FL Studio manual for more info about PDC.
