How To Use Automation In FL Studio

How To Use Automation

Using automation is one of the basic skills you need to learn for making any type of music, not just electronica.

It can be used for various tasks such as fade ins/outs, filter sweeps and some very unusual and cool effects.

It’s also an excellent way to add more life and variation to your production. For example, if you have an otherwise monotonous and simple synth line, just by automating some filter parameters you can make it sound exciting.

In FL Studio it’s easy to create automation for VST plugin parameters and FL Studio interface functions – practically anything can be automated.

This simple video tutorial shows you how to automate VST synth parameters in FL Studio using automation clips.

    Now THIS, I didn’t know. Admittedly, I’m still learning about what’s what, even this long in, but this helped immensely – I was looking for a way to automate the filter cutoff for a riser section, but the only thing I found was to add the Fruity Filter to the effects chain and automate the frequency knob on THAT, and it… didn’t sound so good. So this helped immensely XD
