FL Studio’s Playlist, Where the Beat Comes Together,
Within the playlist, there’s a lot of creativity that can be done in here. Placing in your patterns from the step sequencer, and arranging them, is just the beginning.
You can create automation clips that can provide real cool change up to your sounds, that your patterns just didn’t have. Such as the DBlue Glitch, filters, or even just volume change!
The playlist is where creativity takes a whole new platform. Creating the composition is one thing, but arranging, mixing, and adding cool transitions and effects into the beat, this is all done in FL Studio’s Playlist.
How to Add Patterns from the Step Sequencer to the Playlist
Personally, I like to use the + and – on my number pad. I’d recommend checking out this tutorial as well!
As you scroll through + and -, you will see that you change through different patterns. While going through each pattern, just simply click onto the playlist, and now you have your pattern added to the playlist!
From here, you can copy and paste just like you would in windows etc. Take away, or add to your beat with new patterns, and build your beat.
By right clicking on knobs, you will be able to create automation clips. You can tweak these so that over time, things can change within your track.
Hope that breaks down the playlist for you. These are just the basics. The playlist is a very advanced tool that can create a very professional end result!
So after watching the tutorial of just the step sequencer, I will now be moving into the playlist. The playlist is where you take the patterns you made in the step sequencer, arranging your song, and making the beat!
