Fl Studio: Patterns, Playlist, And Song Mode (part2)

Posted by Ms.Tris On September - 29 - 2008

Back at it with part 2 of Friday’s tutorial. By request I’m including the flp, the sample, and zip yaaay… I made the sample this morning using the slayer,fl keys, and orchestra string soundfonts.

In case you missed part 1 here is the link:Fl Studio: Patterns, Playlist, And Song Mode (part1)
…. ..

I have my sample loaded into the Fl Slicer, I changed the pitch, and played a nice sequence into pattern 2 which I have named “sample verse1”

I go to pattern 4 which I named “snare” and added some snares on beat with the sample. Next..I moved to pattern 3, and played some kicks using my midi controller. I now have 4 patterns..
2=sample verse1
3= snare 1
4= kick

They make a decent beat starter that sounds like this:

I am basically using “song mode and patterns” in Fl Studio like a multi track recording system. Here is what the beat looks like in the program:

From this point I continue building the beat. I may make a different pattern of the sample for the hook or verse 2…I can add a heavy bassline, some percussion like crash cymbols, and effects. I can make a new kick pattern, or a new snare pattern.

Let’s say I’m adding a crash next. I add a new sample channel, load a crash .wav. Assign it to the mixer, and make a new pattern ” Crash”…. I would now have 5 patterns:

I can continue to add patterns until I have a completed beat. Now I have several patterns which can be arranged in different order through out the entire song.My Beat may end up looking something like this:

  1. What’s good Ms. Tris really liked that Tutorial. I always find it very interesting to see how other ppl have their own ways and routine in making beats. I usually don’t work very much with the songmode even tho you make it seem pretty useful lol maybe I gotta check in that some more.

    Hola DISC JOCKEY TRICIO Utilicé un traductor en línea, así que soy esperando yo entiendo su pregunta. Pienso que usted pidió el archivo de Fruityloops. Haré más clases particulares que incluyan los archivos muy pronto. Tengo uno aquí en el sitio, pero no es un golpe del sur sucio. Aquí está el acoplamiento:


    Le enviaré mi email address, e intentaré ayudarle tanto como puedo. Usted me ha recordado aprender más español. I’ el ll todavía esté utilizando un traductor en línea, pero pienso I’ el ll pueda ayudar. Cuando hago la clase particular del sur sucia de la jerarquía incluiré el archivo del flp, y le dejo saber cuando post-it de I. Gracias por tardar tiempo para comentar…
