Fruity Loops tutorial: hardstyle loop

In order to create your first hardstyle loop download tutorial samples and the finished project – samples for tutorial (zip)

Open your FL Studio

Step #1. Drag to the “pattern 1” files: “hardstyle kick 1.wav”, “hardstyle hihat 1.wav “Hardstyle snare 1.wav” and “Hardstyle kick 9.wav”

Step #2. Check the boxes on the step sequencer, as the image

How you’re done, press the “play” or a space on the keyboard to play the piece done. Cool? That’s not all.

Step #3. Go to the “pattern 2”. You’ll see empty step sequencer. Now you can arrange a different sequence on the same samples or add new samples. (tip: You can copy the “pattern 1” to “pattern 2”, would be faster and to change only some elements)

Step #4. Select all the squares on step sequencer on the sample: “Hardstyle_snare_1.wav”. Then right click on it and select “piano roll”, like in the screen:

Step #5. Now you’re in the piano roll. Go to “note proporties” window and set the value of velocity (dynamics / volume) as the image:

Step #6. Right click in an empty space on piano roll, like the screenshot, and select “note paning”

Step #7. Set the value “note paning” (left / right channels) as the screenshot:

Step #8. Go to the “piano roll” sample “Hardstyle_kick_9.wav”, set the sequence, the velocity and note paning like the screenshot:

Set sequence and velocity:

Set paning:

Step #9. Go to “step sequencer” and set the kick and hihat as in “pattern 1”:

Now turn on your new loop! Cool? Save the project and continue to enjoy, experiment and explore further options of Fruity Loops(fl studio sample packs)!

Run my project, which can be found in the root directory with tutorial files and see if you came out the same way as me?
