What do a Novation Launchpad, Livid Block, Native Instruments Maschine & FL Studio have in common? The're all working together in FL Studio Performance Mode demos below.

 

Since we released FL Studio 10.5 (beta), Performance Mode has been in your hands, and we've been excited to see what you're doing with it. Here's just a few of the many videos submitted to our Performance Mode (Looptalk) thread. If you'd like to submit a video (for the chance to win a plugin of your choice), click this link.

The FL Studio development team is working on a new Performance Mode for FL Studio. We thought those interested in this feature would like to have the opportunity to discuss its development. Please see the link below the video.

 

 

Demo with samples

 

How it works

 

Click here to tell the development team about your aspirations for this new development or click here to see the Performance Mode Development Series

 

The system shown above is an early Alpha and will probably change by the time we release it. It works by dynamically adding clips to the Playlist as you trigger them, in this way it's also a real-time arrangement process. All three clip types (Audio, Automation and Pattern) can be triggered.

 

Controllers

 

Keyboards - There are 12 Clips assignable to each Playlist Track (one octave of a MIDI controller per track)

 

Launchpad & Mouse - Unlimited Clips assignable to each Playlist track.

 

Other Pad based Controllers - Limited only by the number of MIDI note assignable pads


At the moment there is basic scripting to define extra pages on the launchpad, you're able to define actions for buttons, among transport ones, notes & controls.

 

The CPU load is similar to the project as it would play normally.

 

Enjoy

If you club, perform music live or DJ regularly then your ears will be copping to some pretty harsh treatment, so there is nothing wussy about protecting your valuable hearing. If you have experienced ringing in your ears after a gig, then that is a sign you have pushed your ears too far. So what are the options?

 

THIS IS A GUIDE ONLY.

 

Typically you have between 2 minutes and 1 hour safe exposure time in a club!

 

1. General purpose Noise Reduction: These will reduce the sound level by 22 - 33 dB and can be had for around 15 cents a pair, when purchased in bulk, and can be reused a couple of times. Throw some in your gig-bag, car or helicopter. The down-side is that if you need to make critical mix decisions then these will significantly skew the frequency response of the music to the low end. If you are mixing then you should look at the next two options.

 

Earplugs and FL Studio boxes


Low cost: You can buy boxes of 200 quality foam earplugs on eBay for $30 USD

 

 

2. Special 'flat response' earplugs: These are designed to reduce the noise levels but do so with a relatively flat response. Rather than losing the highs as the foam style do. These cost between $10-20 USD for a few pairs and should last 6-12 months with heavy use (and regular cleaning). We especially like the skin tones and low profile of the EarPeace models as it encourages compliance & so wider use. NOTE: 'Musician' style earplugs may not block noise as effectively as standard NR earplugs, so take care and definitely don't use these for industrial NR purposes.

 

Hi-Fi / Musician's Earplugs

 

Two respected 'musician' products from Etymotic and EarPeace

 

3. Custom moulded earplugs: These are popular with music professionals and include a soft silicone shell with a flat frequency response filter positioned in the best place for your ear. These cost around $100-200 not including the audiologist's fees for making an ear moulding. Your local audiologist will be able to recommend some brands to you. If you want to see an example Etymotic make these. They should last years with good care.

 

Custom molded hearing protection

 

Custom moulded earplugs are the next step up

 

 

4. In-ear monitors: These are becoming very popular for stage performers as they block out the direct house sound and deliver a custom mix in your 'ear-bud' style headphones. A good set of these will set you back between $199 - $1500 USD. Respected brands include - Futuresonics, Ultimate Ears, Sennheiser & Shure. Like the NR style earplugs there is a hierarchy of standard fit to custom ear-moulded designs, explaining the rather large price range.

In Ear Monitors block the live sound and replace it with your own private mix

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Protection is only useful if it's used correctly in accordance with manufacturers instructions. All exposure times are indicative, please consult the recognized health authority in your location for the official safe sound level exposure charts. Use your brain and look after your most valuable asset, don't lose the beat!
