Performance Tweaks for FL Studio,
FL Studio comes great out of the box, however, there’s always a few extra modifications you can do to help performance, just like in most computer programs.
There is also some cool options hidden into FL’s settings that will increase the smoothness of your FL Studio, or just adjust FL Studio to your comfort.
FL Studio’s GENERAL Settings,
Open up FL Studio, hit F10, and check out the GENERAL tab. Inside here is a bunch of goodies to get some extra performance/smoothness for you!
I personally like the Ultrasmooth visual feedback, and alternate meter scale. This give me more accurate results on the meter, and that butter-like smoothness to FL Studio.
Also to mention, at the very bottom of GENERAL, there is Undo history. In here, you will find, Maximum undo levels. Make sure to click the Undo knob tweaks setting, and I have my number at 100, just in case I realized, I was doing it wrong.
A few changes in FL Studio 11,
So I recorded this video before the release of FL 11, and have noticed a few of the options are not in FL 11, since this video was recorded in FL 10. But you can still take advantage of a few of the options!
- Ultrasmooth Visual Feedback
- Alternate Meter Scale
- Small Scrollbars in Editor
The small scrollbars gives you just that little extra working space, especially if you don’t have more than 1 computer monitor, which I’d highly recommend at least 2 computer monitors!
Other Shortcuts/Helpful Tips,
A couple cool tricks to get around FL Studio’s playlist better are:
- ALT + Scroll Wheel (Moves height taller and shorter)
- CTRL + Scroll Wheel (Moves width wider and smaller)
