Can you actually make anything worthwhile in FL Studio?
The synths sound way too computerized and digital to be good so it always sounds like some garageband amateur shit, the piano roll/sequencing is ass and it seems like its only meant for generic trap/EDM. How do the other big DAWs compare?
I made this using FL. It may not be your style but it should show it's capabilities. Get some vsts and it'll expand your sound immensely. Hardly generic trap or edm sound here.
i've been using this program for like 5 years. it's very powerful but a lot of things about it are ass-backwards
i use it to make progressive ambient and some EDM stuff, i can post clyps if anyone wants to hear some of the quality you can squeeze out of it
So its more VSTs than the DAW? I dont even use a midi or anything just the default synths so that might be it. The default synths are so fucking awful though.
Like i said its all about creativity.You can make great stuff out of cheap sounding synths but you even have tons off efects and you can master it to sound better etc.So its all about you.
Yeah. Just download some plugins like Sylenth/Omnisphere/etc. on TPB and a few vengeance packs and you're on your way.
Even with the defaults the Sytrus and Harmor are capable of sounding good with a few adjustments. Figure out the effects in the mixer as well, those are what help get the sound you want.
>If its not sounding the way you want it to, its an operator error
No DAW has proper support for xenharmonic composition. Their piano rolls are limited to 12-EDO or less. It is so bad that people are resorting to composing in EXCEL.
Assuming you have the default FlStudio VSTS, you need to master Sytrus, Harmless, and Harmor and learn how to create your synths with attack, sustain, release, etc. After that, you have a lot more creative freedom with the program.
U wot m8? You can make anything you want in any DAW. Load in your own samples and VSTs. When picking a DAW it's more about your preference for the interface, they all have more or less the same basic functionality.
yes, you can do this also. there are xenharmonic VSTi's that will treat the piano roll differently (one octave over 24 notes). You could also use pitch bending for any other instrument, arduous but I don't know why you would expect microtonal scales to be part of the basic functionality of the software.
I use both FL Studio and Pro Tools. I prefer mixing in Pro Tools and it's better for working with recorded audio. I use FL Studio for sequencing.
As I said, you can figure out ways to do it with any plugin, which will be arduous but not impossible. Therefore it still stands that you can make anything you want, even if it will be time consuming.
>I dont even use a midi or anything just the default synths
Actually off the top of my head, you could get a 24 note scale on most plugins by running two instances, with one fine tuned up half a semitone. That wouldn't really be that much hassle.
check it, 24 note microtonal scale in sytrus, easy https://clyp.it/hn4fzqir
Just watch a tutorial or two and you'll get it. You can try figuring out what everything does by yourself with no guidance but it'll be confusing and won't sound as good. I used to do this before taking the plunge and actually reading/learning how to use the program and I went from making shitty loops to decent songs.
Made with fl:
It's great for sampled hip hop.
But i now use bitwig and I like it a lot more.
I made this stuff with FL and massive.
