I hope your unofficial end of summer weekend went great. Happy Labor Day to ya!! I have some interesting things to share with you from last weeks Sheila E. concert. I’ll be posting a video up before the end of the week….I am also seriously busy starting today, I’ll fill you in on that too…

Well Well 2 the WELL!! Look what we have here! I admit I am such a fan of great musicians especially the ones who make hip hop in melodic fashion. If you have been on Soundclick in the past 4 years you have surely seen the name Johnny Juliano. He’s been topping the charts with almost each uploaded track. Johnny has also produced records for Wiz Khalifa and other industry artist.

What makes Johnny stand out from the rest for me is he incorporates Funk into his grooves. What I mean by that can only be referenced by listening to the artist of the 80’s. Anything coming from Princes Purple camp, or the wonderfully funky George Clinton crew. They use melodies in a certain way that heavily relies on manipulating scales in a moving manner.

The second thing that caught my ear are Johnny’s amazing mixes. I love the strong clarity that can be noticed in each beat. All this from inside Fl Studio? WOW…You can hear a collection of some of his works here:

Recently Juliano has been sharing tips and tricks. He’s released his first mixing video as many producers requested. The video touches on the basics of mixing inside Fl Studio. Hopefully he’ll continue to release them. You all know I am a strong believer of “each one teach one”. Thanks Johnny for sharing your knowledge!

Remember the techniques can be worked into any DAW. The whole idea is to leave room for each sound frequency included in your mix.

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.

Mixing and Mastering Preperation Basic Tips for using FL Studio 10


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…

Fl Studio Mixing Advice

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 24 - 2012

What’s goodie! 🙂 …You all read the title?..Told ya Fl Studio will always be in my line-up. I think out of all the tools I use, Fl Studio with Maschine and Reason rewired is really my favorite for beat making. Next up is my hardware (Mpc etc). I made a hot track this week using Fl Studio 10. I think I may even keep this one for myself..(yes I am rapping again!! if you need a hot 16 or a hook let me know). I really think after learning more about mixing, things are coming along straight from the program. Some people are using Fl Studio for everything including vocals. Next month when I have a lighter schedule, I’m going to play around with recording audio into Fl Studio.

Image-line has really been doing things with tutorials lately. I was trying to find a way to delete all patterns at once this morning so I could make a template. I stumbled on a video section section I had no idea Image-line posted:
Mixing Advice!!! Woo hoo..enjoy!

Fl Studio Mixing and Production Techniques

It’s gonna be so hard to pull away from music today…I have a quiz later so I have to hit the books..Oh and if you know how to delete patterns at once,please drop a comment 🙂

NI Maschine Multiple Outs + Fl Studio Template

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 3 - 2011

Happy Friday! ..Much to do today before a fun weekend….beats, beats, and more beats..:)

I have everything connected to my pc now. All my hardware and software are synced fairly well. I am still fiddling with a few things. I have been using Native Instruments Maschine for 85% of my beats this year. I absolutely love it, and the work flow is a breeze. The thing is, I also love Fl Studio. The mixer in Fl Studio is my favorite. What I’d eventually like to do is use both Maschine and Fl Studio together. This way I can do a better mix of my Maschine beats using Fl Studio’s mixer.

The first problem I ran into was getting Fl Studio to detect Maschine as a plugin. On My Windows 7 system the file path to Fl Studio plugins looks like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Image-Line\FL Studio 10\Plugins\VST

I had to copy the Maschine.dll file into the Fl Studio 10\Plugins\VST Folder.(NOTE: I did not move the original Maschine.dll but I just made a COPY)

Once Fl Studio detected Maschine, I added a Machine Channel. I used the plug in wrapper to automap Maschine’s outputs. I got to Maschine’s wrapper by clicking the left hand menu and selecting “PROCESSING”;

Next I set up “Group A” outs from Maschine to 15 Fl Studio Mixer Channels.( NOTE:”OUT 1″ on Maschine will be assigned to Fl Studio’s Master Channel in the mixer)
This means I will have to assign my Maschine”outs” starting at “OUT 2”.

For example, in my Maschine Group A, I loaded the 808 Southern Kit. I send the 1st Instrument to “OUT 2”:

I continue to assign the other Maschine outs to 14 mixer channels in Fl Studio…Snare808= OUT 3…ClosedHH= OUT 4 and so on.

It took a few steps, and I’ve set up a template (.FLP file) if you’d like to have it:

Right Click to download:

Fl Studio Maschine Template Zip
Fl Studio Maschine 808kit Template

Keep in mind this is a basic template for 16 outs. I am still trying to figure out assigning channels manually. This way I’d be able to add more than one Maschine instance, which would allow more outs. (If you know how to do this please help :)…)

How To Sync Akai Mpc With Fl Studio

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 1 - 2011

Great morning to you…. feels like we skipped through the end of spring to summer…it’s code red heat on the east coast..wow..

I am in super beat mode this week. I have basically been real slow with adding new beats to the site. Mainly because I was having such a hard time mixing my tracks the way I like. Once projects got started, I found myself spending hours and hours just getting the kicks right. This was all due to new equipment and new mixers. Today I am so back in stride again. The set up I have now is perfect for me. I am still a newbie engineer, but the mixes are finally getting there.

I can say that the two years of mixing headaches helped me learn a lot. I know so much more about sound and frequencies. I understand what a compressor does, and most plugin effects as well. Sometimes you may not see the bigger picture, but hang in there when trying to get your sound correct. Keep creating and practicing the mix, good things will happen with your music.

I have all my software flowing smooth. Now it’s time for the final step of connecting all my hardware and syncing the midi. I am still trying to get the Mpc2500 to work as a Slave to my DAW. I don’t like sequencing on the Mpc. I figure I could use it as a module while running other hardware via “midi thru”, and recording the midi inside the DAW. I’m also revisiting a few videos that I posted about using Reason as a sound module in the mpc:
Using Reason As A Sound Module With Mpc

I am basically connecting everything to sync with one DAW. All hardware and all software to record inside Reaper or Studio One. After making a a beat yesterday with Fl Studio, I realized I’ve never tried to sync the mpc2500 to it at all. Since I am in tech mode, I figured I may as well give it a go…

Here is a quick video which is not high quality but gets straight to the point:

Now I am off to work..enjoy your day 🙂
