FL Studio Guru

We’ve launched the "The FL Studio Guru Blog" with the purpose of providing video tutorials to help you get better acquainted with some of the, often, overlooked features of FL Studio. The FL Studio Guru will also be discussing topics relevant to DAW based music production. The ‘Top Tips’ section is the place to start if you like your tutorials in bite-sized chunks.

Deckadance 1.6

Deckadance now delivers a completely new BPM detection engine with improved tracking (remember to re-analyze your library), new and DJ streamlined audio settings, more and improved setup options, iTunes playlist support, expanded native support for MIDI controllers and a new built-in Deckadance Control CD Creator, ultra-accurate timecode file for CD players. Get the latest installer and explore the huge list of additions and improvements we couldn’t find the space here to tell you about.

FL Studio composer, Jimmy (Big Giant Circles) Hinson, is part of Wall of Sound, the team who produced music for Mass Effect 2 which shipped over 2 million copies within 3 days of its initial release on Jan 26th and achieved the 2nd highest rank on the XBox 360. Jimmy tells us his parts were 100% FL Studio produced, you can read more about his involvement here at Big Giant Circles. The Lead Composer, Jack Wall, is interviewed here at Daily Best Articles (link no longer available). Jack notes in the interview “Jimmy Hinson was a real find for me. ... He has a real knack for bringing wonderful rhythmic beds to the music without sounding "dancey," which is a true skill and talent of his. I’m really looking forward to working with him more in the future.”
