Reverb, EQ, distortion and delay are all highly useful effects for sound design, production and mixing. It can be fun to apply these effects to your sounds and experiment freely, but it’s worth knowing how an insert effect can alter your signal flow. Learning the commonplace parameters of insert effects, such as wet/dry mix, can also help you dial in your desired sound quickly.
In this FL Studio Tips video, Max Venus gives you an introduction to FL Studio’s Insert FX. You’ll gain an understanding of signal flow and the difference between a send effect and insert effect. You’ll also get a glance at the essential parameters of Fruity Reeverb 2, Fruity Delay 3, Fruity WaveShaper and Parametric EQ 2.
