This emindsca teaches you how to import sound samples into FL Studio, such as new instruments or effects. If you don’t have any sound samples, you can get them from the FL Studio developers’ website.
Part 1 Importing Sound Samples
1. Open FL Studio. It’s a black app with an orange carrot icon.
If you don’t have any samples to import, you can purchase some from the FL Studio developers’ site.
2. Click the OPTIONS tab. You’ll see this option in the top-left side of the FL Studio window.
3. Click General settings. This is toward the top of the OPTIONS drop-down menu.
4. Click the File tab. It’s at the top of the Settings window.
5. Under the “Browser extra search folders” heading, click an empty file-folder icon. These icons will appear on the left side of the window; clicking one will open a browser window where you can select your sample folder.
6. Go to the sound sample folder and double-click it. Depending on where the folder is located, you may have to navigate through several folders in the browser window to get to it.
For instance, if the sample folder is in your Documents folder (Windows), you could click Desktop, then Documents, and finally the sample folder.
7. Click the OK button. It can be found at the bottom of the browser window. This will bring in your sample folder. In the column of options on the left side of the FL Studio window, you’ll see a location with the same name as your sample folder appear—this is where you’ll access your imported samples when constructing tracks.
Part 2 Downloading FL Studio Sound Samples
1. Navigate to the developer’s website for FL Studio. It can be found at https://www.image-line.com/. This link will take you to the home page of Image Line.
If you haven’t already, sign in to your FL Studio account by clicking SIGN IN in the top-right corner of the page and entering your email address and password.
You will not be able to download free samples if you have not purchased a version of FL Studio from Image Line.
2. Click the CONTENT tab. This option is near the top of the page.
3. Click Samples. It’s to the right of the “Type” heading near the top of the page.
4. Find a sample that you’d like to download. If you don’t want to pay for one, look for a sample that has a FREE SELECTION button in the bottom-right corner of its box.
Anything on this page is available if you’re willing to pay for a sample.
5. Click FREE SELECTION to the right of a sample you like. This will cause the sample to download to your computer, though depending on your browser, you may need to first select a download location.
You can also add a paid version of the sample you’re looking at to your cart by clicking ADD TO CART. When you’re ready to check out, click the cart link in the top-right corner of the screen to the left of your name, enter any necessary check-out details, and then click CHECKOUT.
6. Wait for your download to finish. Once it does, you’ll be able to import the file into FL Studio.
