STEP SEQUENCER

Graph Editor

Use the Graph Editor to set the properties of notes in the Step Sequencer. The Graph Editor can be used to control note panning (Pan), note volume (Velocity), note release velocity (Release), cutoff (Filter cut), resonance (Filter res), pitch (Pitch) and shifting (Shift). These properties are particularly useful for adding motion to scores, such as filter sweeps or accents to rhythms.

  1. Graph Editor button ( G) - Shows/hides the Graph Editor view.
  2. Property Selector slider - Slide this bar to select the note property to edit. All instruments will respond to panning, velocity, filter cutoff (Mod X) , resonance (Mod Y), pitch and position shifting. However, some external instruments may not support all those properties (for instance, a mono instrument may ignore the panning property).
  3. The options are - Pan (note panning), Velocity (note volume), Release, Mod X (Filter cutoff), Mod Y (Filter resonance), Pitch (note pitch) and Shift (Note start time offset). Shifting delays the playback of the note with 100% equal to one 16th note. Pitch - while the pitch property changes the note's pitch it is intended for use with drum samples and effects; If you want to enter a melody, use the Keyboard Editor.

    To edit bars - Left-click a column and drag up/down to adjust the property. You can change all values simultaneously - hold Ctrl and adjust one, the others will follow. You can also create value 'ramps' - Right-click a value and drag to another, FL Studio will automatically interpolate the values in between the first and last step selected.

NOTES: The Graph Editor properties will only affect active steps. The maximum number of steps in the Step Sequencer is 64, controlled by the Pattern Length control.
