Moving Ahead

Layers can be used to create complex instruments with different samples or to mix the sound of several instruments in one Channel, controlled by a single Layer Channel.

In this lecture you'll learn how to layer your channels.

Using Layers

In this lecture we will work with presets. We have seen them already but we'll cover the whole topic in detail in this lecture.

Working With Presets

Side-chaining a.k.a pumping effect is very important in electronic music. We'll cover this briefly.

Learning Sidechain Effect

One of the most important things in electronic music. Sampling saves time (you just can't synthesize everything in short amount of time). Sampling really helps producers to overcome this problem.

Sampling in FL Studio 12

At times, when you don't want to pay for presets of your favorite plugin. You want to create your own sounds (and most probably presets). Creating Your Own Sounds Will Give You an Upper Hand.

Creating Your Own Sounds

Music Producer

Hi! my name is Rahul Dwivedi. I love making music and video games. Most of the time I can be seen working on my computer or DJing at my friends' parties. I've been producing since 2013 and I've found FL Studio a great companion. I also use Ableton Live but FL Studio makes me feel like home. Whenever I start my studio session and end up by getting a cool track, I go straight up for a party and I play that song there. I design my own cover art. I mostly experiment so some of my buddies call me inconsistent. However, I do have my signature style which you may find in my songs.
