Now that we’ve covered insert effects and signal flow in FL Studio, it’s time to take a look at send tracks. By loading an effect onto a send track, you can route multiple instruments to a reverb, for example, and have total control over how much your instruments are being affected. This could mean applying subtle reverb to your drums, or submerging your synths in a deep, luscious space.

In this tutorial, Max Venus shows you how easy it is to route your instrument tracks to a send track to apply effects such as reverb, delay, compression and more. You’ll learn the benefit of using a send track over an insert effect, and how to route multiple tracks to one send. You’ll also learn how to set up multiple effects on a send track.
