FL Studio – Introduction to FPC part 1 [VIDEO]

The FPC (Fruity Pad Controller) plugin in FL Studio is a self-contained multi-layer/velocity drum machine that makes it easy to create, edit and swap drum kits on the fly. FPC supports 16 multi-layered patches for banks A and B. 1080p and full-screen recommended.


Watch the video above for a basic introduction to the FL Studio FPC plugin. This can be used as a powerful drumkit which can be controlled by a MIDI controller or the piano roll. In the video I show you how to load samples, control them with MIDI or the piano roll and assign different pads to different mixer tracks.

In this video I use a MPK Mini MIDI controller. Check out my Top 10 Budget MIDI Controllers article for similar awesome bits of kit.
