Rac Rivera says:

It’s very informative, it sounds great, good voice quality that easily to catch up…, Thank you very much…., I wonder if you can make a tutorial on how to make an orchestral type?, just like what can you hear on most movies, a good example of it is those sounds or music that you can hear in San Andres movie.

Abhishek Verma says:

There is an inherent problem in FLS sustain of midi notes. Like when you play a note with let’s say velocity 100 unit. And immediately after u play the same note with velocity < 100 units then the previous note is killed. I have 2 questions 1. Does this also happen in cubase and other daw? 2. How to get rid of this?

BrianThePiglet says:

how do you go to the editing screen…. mine just stays in the channel track

DrShankums says:

I still get surprised at how many views and comments I find on this video. I have decided the direction of the series I would like to start. I’ll be needing to build a new pc and get a few pieces of equipment together before I can start, but ill be going in depth into music theory and how to create your own original music and how to apply that knowledge to fl studio. Please continue learning on your own if it really interested you. I have every intention of making content, I just have to find the time and funds to get back to it. I hope to have more videos started in the coming months. I appreciate everyone patience.

Please help cause i can’t figure it out but my step sequencer is just a box hovering around and can’ place it between the tracks like how you have yours and it’s not showing pattern 1 title nor letting me rename or do anything with it.
