Recording Instruments using Fruity Loops

Ever wondered how to record an instrument straight into FL Studio? Let me show you how.

1. Go to the mixer and click on Insert 1 (or any other empty mixer channel).

2. Hit the down arrow next to the words “IN” and select your soundcards input channel.

3. Hit the disk recording button located at the bottom of Insert 1 and type a name to save the recording as.

4. Hit the record button in the Main Window of Fruity Loops and then when your ready to record press the play button!

That’s all their is to it. Frutiy Loops will automatically record any sound input and when you hit the stop button it will load the recording into the Playlist as an audio clip. One of the best features of recording input is that you can playback what you have already created while recording a new peice.

Fruity Loops can make you a true one man band, by recording yourself on each individual instrument. Great programĀ isn’t it!

  1. Awesom.

    I just spent over an hour searching YouTube and websites looking for a tutorial on how to record a synth and couldn’t find anything. Even the FL Studio tutorials didn’t help.

    Simple tutorial like this and it’s recording. Great!


    1. I’ve connected my guitar via Focusrite Scarlet interface to record in FL. I have the same issue- the tracks bleed into my guitar channel. I can’t figure out how to prevent this. I’ve done headphones, but it’s still recording the tracks I’m playing along with onto the guitar track. What’s the fix?

  2. I have a what I usually do is copy my mp3 files straight to a track on the main window by dragging and droping then ill add my guitar and when I try to open any windows with sound effects like chorus it not only gives my guitar the effect but the song and I don’t want do I get it to where the song is normal but only my guitar has the effect I want???
