FL Studio is full of neat little features to help make your sequences sound cool. One of such is the Swing -tool in the Step Sequencer (or groove templates in Piano Roll Quantizer).
In this quick tutorial I will show you how to easily make your beats and synth/basslines swing using the aforementioned features.
In the Step Sequencer, there’s a Swing -slider. Just adjust it to right to add swing to the sequences you have in Step Sequencer. I’ve found that values from 30% to 50% gives a nice swing to rhythm:
In Piano Roll, there’s a Quantizer tool. Press ALT+Q to open it and load a groove template (16_machine swing.fsc is nice for swing) and adjust the ‘Start Time’ for more/less swing:
That’s it – easy and effective! Now go and make some groovy music 🙂
