Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Good for FL style Recording, but........ Maybe this is all great info for a dedicated FL Studio user, making nothing but Electronic type music, but I find most of this confusing and so different from standard DAW and Studio recording. This may be the thing I hope they change the most about FL in the future, a more common sense mixer and recording use feature(s). I mean Cmon, that you have to figure out which fader does what by trial and error, that things arent auto assigned like a standard mixer/daw, just makes me shake head at all the extra steps and time it would take on a large project, hoping to not get mixed up or lost, make a mistake, etc........ Maybe it just me...... I like so much about FL, but this aspect leaves me wanting lots more for more standard and common music producing....... With that said, Nothing wrong with this tutorial in covering what it does, and how it does it.... Reason for missing a Star is that I felt the actual lessons and examples could have been a bit better/longer, using more contrasted media to really get idea of what doing (other than recording simple beats from one track to another). I'd have love to see more standard recording included... a singing performance, a guitar riff or chord progression from an eternal mic, maybe even a random sound capture or something to be edited or manipulated and how that can be done in FL........ For some (many) this tutorial may be just perfect, dunno...... apparently I'm not a hardcore EDM guy, lol

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Brief and to the point Useful tutorial for FL Studio beginners. Could have benefited from 1-2 additional more advanced lessons, for example, dealing with latency in recording external MIDI instruments.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Finally! Thank you so much for bringing theses tutorials to us Groove 3. FL-Studio is not my main DAW but it, to me, is one of the most difficult ones to wrap my head around as far as workflow is concerned. Now I can finally wipe the dust off of my FL-Studio Signature, and start to dig in. I've already made great progress thanks to you Eli.
