On the list of tutorials we should have made ages ago but haven't yet, is a short and to the point 'Getting Started' with FL Studio. If you who think this may just be for new users, perhaps not. Watch for a workflow that doesn't need lots of clip-selectors or Block tracks.
In this Guru tutorial we look at setting up side-chain inputs on VST plugins using the excellent VocALign plugin from Synchroarts. VocALlign automates the often tedious manual process of aligning vocals. After setup, all it takes is just a single click. But wait there's more!
Sidechaining is an 'audio send' from the output of one mixer track directly into an effect plugin loaded somewhere on a second mixer track. Sidechaining allows plugins that can accept more than one audio input to process multiple independent audio streams, in addition to those passing through the mixer track where the effect is loaded. For example, VocALign can accept a single sidechain input to feed in the guide vocal, while Vocodex can accept a pair of sidechain inputs, one for the Modulator and one for the Carrier processing sections.
Every day we see customers say 'Oh wow I didn't know FL Studio could do that' on our forums. That means we've been bad and haven't made enough tutorial videos! The latest revelation today was that you can automate Mixer Track routing. Here's how:
