FL Studio 9 Tutorial

FL Studio 9 is the latest version of the popular audio/MIDI workstation. Version 9 introduces exciting new features and numerous bug fixes. These new features continue FL Studio's assault on the domination of applications such as ProTools and Logic. In this VTC course, author Sam McGuire helps FL Studio users navigate the FL Studio application, focusing on the new features in FL Studio XXL Bundle. The course is based on work flows you would find in the real world and not simply a list of definitions of tools and functions. Using FL Studio to create music is the goal, and this course helps users create a seamless and transparent environment. Continuing on the FL Studio 8 course, this new material is designed to sharpen your skills and provide the means to be a master user of the software. Work Files are included.
