Fl studio hookup


Guitars, Amps, and Effects. So many newbs think you need to connect the main outs to a soundcard and can monitor off the Fl studio hookup room outs too. "Fl studio hookup" that high pitched whine every time you want to record? You are getting it because you hooked up the mixer improperly. Here's some better ways. First with a cheap mixer which I don't recommend and second, with a mixer with an alt bus or direct outs required if you are serious!

Here's all you do is connect the main outs of the Mixer to the soundcard line input s.

You then connect your speakers to the line outs of the audio interface or soundcard. That's all you do. You may also need adapters to connect your powered monitors to the soundcard's output. Any stereo mixer will work.

Monitoring directly off a soundcard with active monitors means you have to control the volume in software on your computer. This is less than ideal. If you have multimedia speakers it's not so bad because there is a volume control on the speakers. Active monitors may not have that and your monitors may occasionally blast you with Fl studio hookup volume that's loud! You cannot monitor your external MIDI synths while you record or they will get recorded too.

There is no way to separate the signal. If you are just using soft synths this is not a problem. You can't monitor the mix at the mixer. Here's what an ALT bus looks like on the back of a mixer. This is for people that want to connect their active monitors to the mixer, as it is done in advanced studios. You need a mixer with an ALT output sometimes called a subgroup out, or group out You can also use direct outs see below from two channels.

The subgroup ALT connects to the Fl studio hookup line in. The soundcard line out connects to any two available line inputs.

The can be aux returns, tape ins, or channel line inputs preferred. Though it defies newbie common sense wisdom, you do not have the main outs connect to anything. The Control Room outputs act as the main Fl studio hookup and acts as a volume control for the whole system. You simply press the ALT button often the "mute" button to send the channel to the soundcard. You can monitor both the signal you are recording and the playback signal from the computer.

You can use the headphone jack and this will keep the studio quiet and the recording clean. You can put processors like compressors in between the alt out and the soundcard "Fl studio hookup." You can monitor your external MIDI synths and modules without recording them to audio and when you want to record them to audio it's just a button press away. Mixers with ALT busses cost more, but are worth it in my opinion.
