    • I think Pre-sets are typically pretty lame. Also, the title of your question conflicts with the description. Are you just looking to Master your beats or are you having trouble with arranging the mix as well?
    • When i am making a drum beat for my tracks, i like to use lots of micro editing, really go through and fine tune each sample to fit your needs, adding in cool effects like panning and maybe a lo/fi or hi/fi filters here and there to help add depth. Also, have you tried converting the midi track for your drums in to audio format? there are lots of audio effects you can use as well to clean up drum sounds, and with audio, you can chop up your beats and make them all crazy and stuff!
    • Honestly it sounds like you are trying to take the easy way out with your beats, and if you seriously want beats that sound dope as hell, you're gonna needs to put some effort into it. I'm not familiar with newer editions of FL studio, but i know all the tools you need are accessable and at your finger tips, you just have to take the time to use them efficiently. Remember that when producing and looking for that perfect sound, patience is a must.

  • Try to learn the basics first, and anyway mastering is a quite unique arena, you probably would learn that by watching guru fl studio videos at the net, not only they are more of the electronica tutorials, but quite good at mastering kicks or giving them compression cause that it the main reason why people need mastering, the kick isn´t working out for us, ok here are some main things you should do with the track.
    • Kick: edit the kick in edison and give the oomph a quite change by normalizing the oomph, this could easly be done not with the first part but the second part inside a kick, another thing is to use parametric eq 2 and take away the tones from 1000hz upper and to as low as 200-500hz and giving it only a clean kick, also add a limiter to a kick.
    • Synths: use parametric eq 2 to take away the bass, so the bass could play free, you could remove everything before 200hz
    • Pads: always a good thing to add sidechain, but in beats that sounds quite different, you probably would need clean sound
    • Hats: try to use automatic pan control using the formula controller at 3 ways lfo
    • Bass: sometimes add distortion, add stereo shaper at stereolize 3, add chorus..
    • Vocals: the hardest part I haven´t really known how to work with, but i nearly add compression with limiter, and use parametric eq 2, sometimes cool to add delay 2 at 2:00 and add at volume input the desired input.

  • Well. my friend says FL has a lot going on and it's complicated in that sense. He says its a bit unorganized and that's just the way it is. He said Logic is more organized in that matter, like you don't have to go back and fourth and edit each thing...There's also the Maschine by Native instruments that acts as a controller for these kinds of programs and it comes with its own program too. You can look that up...also get a keyboard if you don't have one.

  • Obviously, fl studio is not for you. Go back to garage band

  • side chain is the best method to master songs in FL mixer....panning is important too so that you can hear the beat clearly and remember to export as a WAVE..much clearer than the MP3..

    Gud Luck..Cheerzzz.

  • Picture the eq2 as a dinner table and the frequinciez as chairs every noise should have its own seat. Other wise the chairs become crowded. By filling the spectrum out it will make ur beats sound bigger and u wount have to side chain or link channels. This causes compretion which I feel steals the fullness of ur sounds. Some ppl would say cut the 808 at 40hz but in trap that's where u get the shake. Cut 808 at 100 an boost in the very low. Cut ur bangin kik Around60 an boost in the 90 to 100. Next brass or organ cut an boost at the next chair. And so on and so on. Don't use other ppls technics as mixing bible but more as a guide. Music is about originality do what u think sounds good. And don't expect to be able to mix a pro track over night it takes time.. An remember reverb is better than stereo off set some times

  • there are a lot of factors to consider in obtaining a good mix.  in my opinion the most important is sound selection leveling and eq.  effects and compression can give you mix life but without carving out proper space for each instrument and making sure your sounds compliment each other no amout of effects and or compression will make your mix sound any better.  all you will have is a loud washy mess.  ive found great techniques from fl guru and warbeats on youtube the will get you started in the right direction.
