Konbanwa!, I'm just happy that EM411 is still around after all these years.
I'm an engineer thats been building synthesizers for the past half decade.
Recently I've been experimenting with the synthpop / indy vibe, thanks for listening.
Giorgio Moroder / Donna Summer
Electric Light Orchestra
Yellow Magic Orchestra
The Human League
Synth: Custom Analog modular - Musi Basis System (like a hotrodded / stylish Blacet, would be the closest example).
Rhythm: TR707 with Musi sound ROM expansion and MIDI sample dump transfers.
MIDI controller: Custom electronics KORG RK-100.
Sound card: EMU 1616m
Vocals: Shure SM7B
Monitoring: JBL Professional
Sequencing: FL Studio
Just the essentials.
I have some Moog and Sequential gear I'm fixing up / repairing lent to me from friends but really the only synth I've been using for the past year is my Musi modular. Together with FL I can layer or build pretty much anything. Yes it does take time patching everything in, and I have to decide on a final BPM before I start recording tracks, but I'm happy with the setup.
Electronic Music news: FLS10 is out, fixed my gripe with 9 :)
Written June 09 2011 , Tags: FL Studio 10
Heya, FL Studio 10 was released recently and its performance, and usability is much improved over 9 and 8. Theres a backwards compatibility option for the pattern loop window in the playlist so your not stuck using the new patter clip method. Although the work flow is easier to use in 10 than 9 with the new pattern clip method, since which ever pattern you currently have selected is set ready to write in the playlist. I can see why FLS is making this transition.
Anyway long story short, Pitcher is fixed, all the audio settings and multi core performance improvements, along with the audio clip disk handling is great. The resolution zoom in is way easier to use (no more changing PPQ) ect. You can tell a lot of work has gone into perfecting the playlist performance, scrolling and the audio clip waveform updates on zooming.
So in other words its like a rare anti-bloat ware update, considering how other company's new versions are usually slower than prev versions. I mean for the typical simple work I do I was able to drop my ASIO drivers from 7MS down to 5MS latency with about the same buffer under run probability.
So ya the playlist zoom, audio performance enhancements, pitcher working perfectly, also the vst compatibility is better but that was added in 9, also the riff machine was added in 9 which I really like. It just feels inspirational I guess. Oh and the recording options for quickly re-taking a recording pass are perfected. (just remember you now have to RT click the rec arm button to select recording directory). But its just like, bam, bam now when I'm tracking vocals.
Man its kinda nuts, I looked back at my older FLS versions folder and I got my license when version 4 was out like 2003-04, man its been quite a journey. Ain't too shabby for a single license!
Yup- the commercial incentive is to find new users - not scamming existing ones in to updates. IL is a great pioneer, technically and commercially.
damn now if sony would only fix my huge gripe with acid pro 6 I'd be happy as a clam too...no automation of fx on audio tracks??? wtf?
That's the same reason why I like Reaper so much.
thats crazy we be using fl-studio 10 today i foudn a bunch of magazine that date of 2000 when fl-studio was still called fruity loop and it was at version 2.1 and where we dint have this sorth of licence yet that permited us to try un restricted the software and you had to buy new licence for each version time has change indeed
