FL Studio 20 – Complete Beginner Basics Tutorial

This video is the first in the FL Studio 20 Basics Playlist and is to help those who are completely new to FL Studio 20 and are looking for a place to start.

Watch the FL Studio 20 Basics Playlist here : https://goo.gl/2Yxrf2

I try to simplify the DAW and it’s signal flow for those who are not familiar with FL Studio’s workflow.

This video shows how to navigate the Browser, Channel Rack, Playlist, Piano Roll and Mixer so that you can start making music :)
There are far too many features to cover in one video but luckily there are lots more (shorter) videos on each topic.

Finally I understood how to use Patterns. Im on the edge to switch from Ableton to FL because of BRSO articulate plugin

Stevethesearcher says:

Great video. Everything was clear to me except the insert and send channels in the mixer. The mixer in FL studio seems quite small and poky compared to the mixers in other DAWs. In Sonar for example you click inside a very obvious box in a mixer channel and add an insert. I just saw these tiny little strips in FL studio and thought to myself where do I add my insert and send effects?

Ian Boland says:

My GMS synth sounds different and it’s wierd.

Shia says:

my song tempo wont stay the same as my pattern tempo when i play it and when i play the “song” on the playlist, its really sped up. i have been trying to figure this out for so long. does anyone know how to fix this

Johnny Apostal says:

Looks so cool… I havent used FL since FL 2 from back in the day,,, its totally come along way since then… & honestly miss the fun times I had on it… So just a few Q’s I have are:
Is it possible to route from insert channels (as u called them) to Aux busses & then from Aux busses to other Aux busses before u hit the master buss like u can in Logic Pro?
Can u also have more than 10 plugins on 1 insert channel? Also How stable is FL20 on a Mac with various 3rd party audio unit plugz?

BassBoostingBrony says:

Today I switched from fl11 to 20 and There is something that really bothers me!
I cant really change my plugins in the Pluginpicker list (the grey one) back in fl11y ou could just hide everything you dont want to make it nice and tidy. And it always autoassigns any of my plugins to both effect and generator. Please help me!

Jen says:

PLEASE HELP, when i record midi sequences in FL my keys stick and hold the notes forever until I hit the key again. I already unselected the keyboard focus button but it still sticks and holds. Not sure what to do

Baron Jay says:

Beautiful!
I love the simplicity!

Johnny Apostal says:

One other thing… How about inputs & outputs regarding analog equipment… say if I had a Apogee Symphony I/O 16×16 could I assign different ins & outs thru an I/O plugin like in Logic? Also regarding sidechaining… Say if I send my kick to a buss can I select no output on that buss & use it as a sidechain trigger for other compressors from other insert channels?

sokarcreative says:

OmgItsNavel says:

Really helpful video but I feel like I need to take a step back learn the basics of music. For example, I don’t even know what reverb is and some other musical words you mentioned. I’m looking to learn all of that but just I’m unsure of what to search for to learn that on google.
