It has been a long time since I have been here. I kind of got away from recording but now my 17 year old son has been bitten by the bug and so he has has a ton of questions for me about how to operate the system and I seem to be suffering from sometimer’s disease. He is trying to get FL Studio to work as a VSTi. I can remember how to make it play but I can’t seem to remember how to get it to not play. He wants to use it as a drum track for recording purposes but then drop it out for the mixdown. How do we control that channel?
Hey Terry, good to see you back here. I remember you on here from years ago.
I gave up trying to get nTrack and FL to work together with Rewire (not for any deep technology based reason) and just exported a wav from FL and imported into nTrack.
So, I can’t really be of any help I’m afraid. But I thought I’d say “hi”.
I remember you too. Good to see you. I don’t see Mac or TJ around. Feels funny without them here. I did some searching before I posted hoping to find the answer. I never learned to use rewire. I just load FL as a VSTi. It works fine for me like that. The problem is I can’t remember how to get it to be quiet or just not play. I know there is a way to see the VSTi channel but can’t find it. I don’t really want to go through a big learning experience again. My son is the one who will be running the system. I told him to register here so he can start to learn the things I can’t teach him but this is bugging me so I want figure out what I am doing wrong. Anyway, if one of you can at least remind me how to do this I would greatly appreciate it.
Yeah, Mac & TJ left here years ago and started up Audiominds.com. They’re still over there or were the last time I looked.
The forum here is pretty quiet. There are a few of us who hang out in the other parts of the forum here and a few of use different DAWs now but there’s still a good feel here (mostly!)
Yeah, I checked over at Audiominds too. Both absent. I remember when Flavio created the “other” forum to get the bickering off of this forum. I went there a few times but too political for me. I just wanted to learn N.
I am still running ver 4.1.6. I thought to upgrade to the latest but my son thinks my system is already struggling. I’m not sure how much more demanding the new version is. Might still do it.
