INSTRUMENT PLUGINS / EFFECT PLUGINS / CHANNEL SETTINGS

Fruity Wrapper

The Fruity Wrapper is a software interface/layer between instrument / effect plugins and FL Studio. The control options (1, 3 & 4) are common to all plugins (FL native, VST & DX format), while the plugin options (2) only appear on Wrappers that are hosting VST & DX format plugins. The Wrapper provides compatibility with the VST and DX plugin standards (the screenshot below demonstrates the Fruity Wrapper hosting a fictitious 'Poi Poi' VSTi plugin). More information on plugin formats can be found here. For more information on installing and using 3rd party VST/DX plugins, click here.

There are two versions of the Fruity Wrapper, Effect & Generator. FL Studio will select the appropriate wrapper depending on the plugin type loaded. There are several control options:

1. Plugin Menu

The Plugin Menu contains various plugin-specific commands, including preset management. The commands displayed will depend on the type of plugin being hosted. NOTE: The Save preset as command can be dragged and dropped on a compatible target.
