    Easy people I've managed to finally get my PC setup & need a little question answered.
    I've put three kick drums on top of each other & have added a little compression & reverb to them all. All three of them are just a single kick drum & I haven't got any other loops created within the track (imagine a single kick drum & thats it). I want to export this as a Wav.file the way it's sounding but whenever I do this & load it back into Fruity loops it only sounds lvery low in volume like only one of the three kicks is playing. Do I need to export it as a loop or is their another way to help me out?

    If you export it as a wav, an its too quiet, use the master volume to make it louder when you export, an when you have imported the wav, turn the master volume down again.

    Since they took the amp option out of FL4 is tricky to knock up the volume :confused:

    You can bounce down the three kicks to one channel im pretty sure - but i dunno how to do that either!

    I reckon your just exporting a single pattern, are they all on the same pattern or separate?

    When you export you should choose song if you have multiple patterns playing.

    In my experience, whatever it sounds like in Fruity is what it will sound like as a Wave.

    Yer I'm exporting it as a single pattern rather than a song, as all I wanted to do was make a loud chunky kick drum then be able to save it as a wav. then import it into loads of other tracks I'm working on.

    Well if it's all on a single pattern it should save with no problems, not seen this problem before.

    Stumped.

    When you make the wav make sure no tracks are muted that you don't want, normalize the wav afterwards (you might want to remove the silence that comes after the kick) and when you load it in the default volume setting for it will be about 70% as i remember so crank it all the way up and it should be alright.

    Also any master effects will alter the volume too.

    Nice one Serum should be taking your advice this weekend about it, I think normalizing it should help. Cheers SDM & Jay for the advice, hopefully try and take this on board aswell. i'll let you know after the weekend. ;)

    also check your compression output levels that it isnt sitting somewhere at -10 db for threshold.
    You could also normalise each drum / kick before creating your loop & then checking it in a wav editor after exporting it as a loop.

    I had just written a long ass reply & I was timed out & lost all the info.
    That sucks ass in a big way.

    MFU :gun:
