The time has come when you can start creating your first song in FL Studio 12.

This will help you in the following ways :

  • You will be able to identify what you've learned so far.
  • You'll gain confidence.
  • You'll begin your song journey.

 Okay, let's do this!

                                                                                  Part II


In this video we will go through more of the song structure and we will mix our channels.

It is recommended to go back to lecture 5.

                                                                           PART III


In this video we will finalize our song and make some minor tweaks to polish it.

By the end of this lecture, you'll be able to implement every single thing we've covered so far by creating a finished song. 

Section 3: Advance Techniques

Now when you have learned some basic techniques it is time for a quick view of what we will learn in this section.

Okay, let's go!


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


When you'll become more familiar with the song structure, you would also need some vocals to enhance your song. This lecture will help you to get best vocal results.


You don't want your song to sound unprofessional right?


This video gives you an idea of what we've learned so far.

Section 4: Creating Your Own Music Style in FL Studio 12

Here you'll begin your song structure and plan about what we're going to make.


In this video we're going to make some changes so that what we're creating remains a song by using the provided presets in the resources.

In this lecture we will make some huge changes in our final track as we go through the advance techniques.

We will give our song a final touch-up by using some basic yet required techniques.


We will finally mix and master our track and will export it for further use.

Thank You!

Instructor Biography

Rahul Dwivedi, Producer, Performer

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 mostly experiment so some of my buddies call me inconsistent. However, I do have my signature style which you may find in my songs.
