    Heya,

    I wanted to make some dnb/techno like song with a lot of acid sounds in it. I was looking around on the web, but couldn't find a good aicd plugin for fruity loops. Does anyone have any tips for me? I would prefer the free plugins, but I don't really mind paying too. Oh, and I know fl isn't the best software for dnb, but I'll just give it a try ;).

    Boris,

    i could be wrong, because i've never used it but isn't that what the toxic biohazard plugin does that comes with fl.

    also work on a nice synth then use the fruity love filter to fuck around with it

    Check Vanguard by reFX. Very trancey presets but with lickle tweeks can do great acid lines.

    thanks everyone. I thought fl sucked for dnb, but perhaps it's just that I don't know how to make dnb in fl. But thanks!

    If you don't know how to create tracks of certain style in 1 program, it wont be any easier to create it in any other program. I'd say the biggest difference between FL and heavier DAW's is in recording physical inputs and the quality of any built-in effects. Fruity's plugins and generators are alright but their only true power lies in their full modulation capabilites within FL. It's clearly designed to be used in creating music from scratch instead of cubase and the like, whose primary purpose is to record and mix 'real' music.

    any old synth can do acid lines, certainly not accurate 303 emulations but thats beside the point

    I'm not sure what you mean by that but having no sense of humour and being as relaxed as a crowbar, I must say that Fruity is clearly a faster way to create a sound. All you have to do is drag a sound in and it's already mapped across the keyboard, you have filters, arpeggio, pitch bend, vol+filt+pan envelopes 2 clicks away. It's just that those filters are so distinctively thin, just like the all fruity internal generators are distinctively plastic on their own. Combining fruity with a good VST collection and maybe even doing the mixing in another host would be combining the best of both worlds. For me at least. Not cubase tho, Reaper is 10 times cheaper, suited better for my budget.:wave:

    edit: and well, I didn't really say cubase is strictly for recording or mixing. Mistabishi seems to use cubase 4 for his tracks so there you go.
