its a VERY basic tut just to get you going..... making a full track is obviously a lot more complicated than this!!!
first off is the pic of the sample browser and the step sequencer, if you cant see either of these click the buttons in the pic....
now get some samples...... in the sample browser in the pic you can see a folder called "packs" which is highlighted, click this, it contains samples that come with fruity
in this example im using samples from the "realdrumkits" pack, click on the samples to preview them then drag them to the step sequencer (drag them to the place where the arrow points in the pic)
now draw in a beat, the beat in the pic is a very basic example of a std drum and bass beat
now once you have a beat going, you can adjust some velocities, follow the instuctions in the pic..... the values in the pic are just very basic examples
you will also notice ive put more beats in, including some ghost snares; i will explain those in the next pic
heres a basic example of ghost snares, you have the main snares at standard velocity, and the ghosts are quieter....
now you have a basic beat going, lets load up a synth to make a bassline......
in the example im using the 3xOsc that comes with fruity because its a basic synth
load it up by clicking channels (see pic) then "add one" then pick the 3xOsc
now turn down the volumes on osc's 2 & 3 so you can only hear the first one
the sound will be quite high pitched so raise the root note (the pic says lower it but its wrong). by raising the root note you lower the main pitch (c5)
to raise the root note, RIGHT click an octave or two (or three) higher.... in the pic i set it to c7
now open the piano roll (see pic)
draw in a basic melody
now to adjust the synth settings.... im not gonna go into full detail here, just give you a few basics
turn up the vol on osc two a little and change the wave shape, the wave shape will change the timbre/texture of the sound.
the "CRS" will change the pitch of each osc..... it is very important to do this in octaves or your sound will be out of tune..... to adjust in octaves, adjust in sets of 12 semitones (-24, -12, 0, +12, +24) you can see how many semitones it has been adjusted by by looking at the panel just below the "channels" button you clicked earlier
the last pic shows you how to send something to an effects channel
ok well thats the basics, hopefully that will get you off to a good start
Firstly, marlz is fooking good lad. Respect to you for doin all that mate.
BDS, its a shame you live in Birmz mate. i live in portsmouth. I would happily invite you round and show some stuff. Marlz will sort you out mate. Just persevere. I learnt how to use fruity with no guides or help. Just takes time mate.
