    Hi all

    I am looking to find out how I can gradually increase an effect over time on my drums. Using FL.

    example of what I am after:


    3min30secs in, the drums roll up into the 2nd drop. they go from quiet and muffled, to loud with no low end at all.

    another example:


    Hopefully my question is clear. These examples are the ones I could find in 5mins.


    Thanks in advance, it's been bugging me for a while and would really help me out.

    It's simply an EQ with a low pass filter that is automated to go from somewhere around 200hz all the way up. I don't work with FL but i found this tutorial: Do the same with your drums like he does it with the piano

    In the FX part in the mixer, you'll see a sliding round button besides it. Right-click and choose "automation". you'll notice a bar shoing up in the playlist and you can set up parameters from there. right click and you create a point, slide up or down to make it change over time.

    That One Way tune is fucking stunning. The spacial location of each sound is perfect. I think I'm in love.
