How to Delete MIDI Mappings FAST

If you know the knob you’ve mapped to a VST Parameter, then simply RIGHT-CLICK the knob, and you’ll see a checkmark next to “Link to Controller” or “Override Global Links”.

However.. resetting MIDI Links in FL Studio is a little more involved, because you have to know about a Project Link vs. Global Link.

Project Links open Remote Control Settings pop-up window.

Global Links open Global Link Settings window.

The windows look very similar, but they are different!

How to Delete Link to Controller Mappings

When you’ve setup Link to Controller, that is called a Project Link in FL Studio.

You’ll know this by the Orange Icon in FL Studio’s Hint Panel:

Project Link (Orange Knob Color)

These Project Links are PER PROJECT. So if you save, this MIDI Mapping only applies to that .flp (FL Studio Project).

Simply RIGHT-CLICK the Mapped MIDI Knob in FL Studio, then click the checkmark beside “Link to Controller”.

The Remote Control Settings window opens up.

Simply press Reset, then click Accept.

The Project Link is now deleted!

How to Delete Global Links in FL Studio

Global Links are also known as permanent links in FL Studio.

Note, Global Links used to be called “override generic links”.

A Global Link is Blue in FL Studio’s Hint Panel:

Global Links allow us to get Hands-On Mixing in FL Studio (course) across any new or old FL Studio project you’re working on.

Deleting a Global Link in FL Studio works just like the Project Link (Link to Controller), however, Global Links are also saved in a special file for user convenience!

If you want to backup your Global Links in FL Studio, or if you want to manually modify them, the Global Links file is located in:

Documents/Image-Line/FL Studio/Settings/Mapping/Generic/local

If you just want to delete one Global Link, then follow the RESET and ACCEPT method above when clicking “Override Global Link” after you RIGHT-CLICK the knob.

How to Reset All MIDI Controller Mappings in FL Studio

To repeat, it’s very important you know the difference between project links and global links.

To reset all Global Links, simply delete the file in the location I just shared above. Restart FL Studio, and you’re permanent links are all deleted.

To reset all Project Links, these are shown in:

FL Studio Browser -> Current Project -> Remote control

You will then be able to see ALL PROJECT LINKS, and you can go through them one-by-one and delete them with the RESET and ACCEPT method.

Or if you just want to reset one knob, RIGHT-CLICK a knob, and if it has a checkmark beside either “Link to Controller” or “Override Global Link”, click it, then use the RESET and ACCEPT method.
