Gross Beat Tutorial – Everything You Need To Know – FL Studio 20

In this video I show you everything you need to know about the Gross Beat plugin. This plugin can be used in almost any DAW but comes stock in FL Studio 20 Signature Edition.

Gofish says:

This is exactly what i am looking for. I have been searching for a way of automating pitch/time shifts. Thank you

GuitarHeroMusic191 says:

Wow, I’ve used gross beat in pretty much every song I make and I never really understood it fully I just experimented so much with it to figure it out, but now it makes a lot more sense after watching this haha, I love using the pulse and wave time manipulation patterns to make really weird bass

Neil Chhag says:

Very well articulated, loved it.

vishal jagtap says:

Michael Copeland Jr. says:

Abhishek Bhuyan says:

You don’t know how much this video means to me. Been hounding helplessly on the internet for months and this shows up in my recommended, and lo! I am now a master of gross beat (jk). But i now know the entire interface. Thanks for the help.

Did Benedict Cumberbatch and Myles Kennedy have a child together???

Gutter Cory says:

Image-Line NEEDS to be paying you for showing all their customers how to use their product. You have better tutorials than the Image-Line tutorials… hahaha… no cap…

Kevin Falk says:

I was hoping that there is a possibility to tap the right click points with my keyboard in. I think this way would be very natural

Alex Maxwell says:

just wanna recognise the effort u put in to upload the video and record it before final render to show where the time stamps would be

jlzerowq says:

Love this guy’s videos man!

Jarek Lit says:

Sometimes I got confused about the way it works, that’s why I only use half speed preset.

Pankaj Kumar says:



i’ve been using gross beat for years but never realized there was a wet/dry knob for time and volume until now. wow. it was so obvious. how did i not notice it??

Shurath says:

Can you use it in 6/4?

Gautier Lamimolle says:

Inspiring video and great job with the explaining.
Towards the end you say that this plugin is about (for beginners) trying out presets or modifying presets to make something sound good rather than understanding everything the plugin does, for me that’s the most important point and I think you should have said that right at the start of the video. But again, great job !
