Understanding FL Studio’s Channel Settings to manipulate audio and MIDI tracks
Loop, stretch, reverse and arpeggiate your sounds within the Channel Settings window.
Although each virtual instrument and effect contains its own array of controls and functions, the FL Studio Channel Settings window can be just as powerful in editing and affecting your sounds. By getting familiar with its various features, you can easily change the properties and performances of any sound you load into FL Studio.
In this FL Studio Tips video, Max Venus walks you through the various Channel Settings available in FL Studio. You’ll learn how to loop audio regions and apply time-stretching, reverse, normalisation and more. You’ll also learn how to adjust envelope and performance settings, such as the arpeggio, echo delay and fat mode, filters, portamento and more. You’ll learn how to apply these settings to audio and MIDI tracks.
We’re starting off with the basics in our FL Studio Tips series, gradually moving into more advanced and creative techniques, as in our Logic Tips and Ableton Live Tutorials series. Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube Channel for weekly updates on new videos and content.
