How To Mix Inside Fl Studio

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 28 - 2012

Hey Hey my great producers! It’s going to be extremely hot over the next few days. Please be sure to drink plenty water and take the heat seriously. It looks like we’ll have record breaking heat by Saturday…..

I’ve been rolling out a few bangers lately using FL Studio 10. I must say my mix is getting a lot better. Once you begin to understand the frequencies, monitoring, and how to use effects it gets easier. I am still seeking a wonderful mix straight from my production software. I think this helps a lot when you need to work fast but efficiently. I’ve come up with a few techniques which are working for me. I found a video which is close to what I do and is an easy way to start for those new to mixing ” inside the box” using FL Studio.

Tyler Clark has a nice YouTube channel featuring his production and tutorials.Stop by and check out more when you have time.

Remember many techniques you see here can easily be transferred to any DAW or Production program like Reason. Also nothing is set in stone and you may come up with your own way to do the exact same thing. If you are doing tutorials please share a link and I will help you promote it.

How To Rewire Fl Studio and Reason

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 15 - 2012

Great Friday to you! It’s been a full week for me. I managed to end math class and make a few beats. I used Fl Studio all week, and I wanted to try some sound design with Reason’s Malstrom synth. I had the rewire going smoothly, but was only using one Reason track at a time. Today I’d like to set up a template with multiple outs from Reason to Fl Studio. I’ve mentioned How To Rewire Reason To Various DAWS before.The first video showing how to Rewire Fl Studio and Reason isn’t visually clear. Here is another video that is precisely done for Fl Studio and will help take things a step further. I am sure watching both will get the ball rolling for me this morning…

How To Select Studio Monitors and Place Them

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 7 - 2012

Hey you! What’s great in music this week? I’m working diligently on music as I get closer to my one course ending. After this math class, it’s back to two courses and less to less music but Yaaay to more knowledge…:) A little reminder: When I skip a week of posting, I am deeply into two classes. My schedule is 5.5 weeks of two course then 5.5 weeks of one course. Please know that I work hard to leave you plenty information to check out if I’ll be away. I appreciate you holding me down by visiting, emailing, and commenting.

Wow!! I’ve been back on my trusty program Fl Studio 10. I am loving the mix I’ve been getting. One thing I’ve learned this week is to leave plenty headroom everywhere. I had been mixing way too loud and loosing all kinds of frequencies. I’ve also been setting my monitor volume lower while mixing to avoid ear fatigue. Fl Studio’s plugins are awesome as well…the parametric eq2 is very useful for all instruments! We’ll surely get into more post about how to use the included effects…they really work when you learn how to use them…

I have the KRK Rokit 5 monitors and the M-audio Studiophile Av 30 in use in my lab. I haven’t posted enough about monitors here. It is extremely important to be able to hear what your beats really sound like. Every set of monitors handles different frequencies in different ways. It’s good to get an idea of what monitors do and how to place them in your studio. I found two useful videos to share all about monitors, and placement:
