FLStudio tutorials

Today in the Image-Line Newsletter the new Harmor synthesizer,

Harmor is driven by a powerful additive synthesis engine. Its modules will look familiar to subtractive synthesizer enthusiasts including: oscillators, filters & phasers, these are featured in Harmor but, because they are performed through additive synthesis, offer more freedom.

After watching the introductory video I browsed some other videos, and what made me most happy was the tutorial about making tempo changes in a project (and how to sync Fruity Granulizer to the project tempo, to keep your loops in time with the changes) – I didn’t know this was possible.

Another video tutorial I’d like to watch (if time permits: it lasts 44′ !) is the Dubstep tutorial. Unfortunately the audio is very bad and because of the unintelligible mumbling of Mr SekoIdiootti you can’t make much sense of the lesson he is teaching, but if you let the video speak for itself, there will hopefuly be some tips and tricks to learn.

While writing the above, I’m still thinking about the Harmor: shall I buy it? It costs only $ 99 now, as an introductory price, but this will be $ 149 on October 1. So I feel a bit strained about the offer. Besides: Image Line is also developing a Groove Machine, currently beta-tested; a horrible attack of greediness is coming up in me 🙂

The guys at Image-Line keep expanding FLStudio – there is now even a mobile version (not for Android yet) – and although I have been making some music with other DAWs (Ableton, Renoise, EnergyXT), FLStudio is still my favourite workhorse.

So, where is my credit card? 🙂

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
