Modern music-making is incredibly visual. Our computer screens are packed with information at all times, with a plethora of features and files immediately accessible via our DAW. It can be easy to get lost in your own project if you’re not careful. Small visual cues like colouring and grouping can be essential in keeping on top of your creations, and FL Studio comes equipped with plenty of tools to help you stay organised in the Playlist.
In this FL Studio Tips video, Max Venus demonstrates the importance of Playlist organisation. You’ll learn the benefits of grouping, categorising and colouring your tracks and instrumentation and the best practices involved. You’ll also find out how to keep automation clips grouped with the tracks they’re affecting.
We’re starting off with the basics in our FL Studio Tips series, gradually moving into more advanced and creative techniques, as in our Logic Tips and Ableton Live Tutorials series. Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube Channel for weekly updates on new videos and content.
