Ghost notes in FL Studio are amazingly powerful. They have increased my workflow to a new level.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how ghost notes increase my workflow, and how they’ll also increase your creativity and productivity!
First, what are ghost notes? Well, when you have a pattern that has a couple different instruments playing, it allows you to see the notes that you have previous played inside that pattern.
This is really helpful when you want to record an instrument on top of a previously recorded instrument.
A problem that happens to me a lot is that I forget what the chord progression of my track is. But since I can see the ghost notes of the previous instrument, I know what notes pertain to the song! Therefore, while improvising over the beat, I can hit the right notes, cause I can see ahead of time the next chord to play.
Also, seeing ghost notes allows you to quickly add in notes on a new instrument to add that layer sound, or a new melody. You can see the previous notes and exact timing of them; this also prevents adding in the wrong note at the wrong time.
Super handy, and I can’t imagine working without ghost notes in FL Studio.
