Fl Studio 8: Recording With Computer Keyboard
Posted by mstrismusic on June 25, 2008
I’m planning on selling my Edirol Md-16 mixer, and I had to disconnect some equipment to do so. My midi controllers are off, and I feel like making some fire…I mean extreme heat to upload here…….
Have no fear Fl Studio is here ;-) …
There is a lot of power in the program, and Fl Studio has a function that allows you to use your typing keyboard as a midi controller.
It’s an easy thing to accomplish if you don’t have an external midi controller or if you are using a laptop. Here are 3 ways to activate this function.
1. Hit ( Ctrl+T) and activate the keyboard
2. Look for the icon of the “Typing Keyboard”, and click the small square to the left to activate the keyboard.
3. Go to options, scroll down to “switches”, activate “Enable MIDI remote control” and ” Typing keyboard to piano”
Go To Options Panel
*–>”Typing Keyboard to Piano” – When selected, your typing keyboard will function as a MIDI (musical) keyboard. Right-click the LED to select the base octave for mapping the keyboard keys.< –this is instructions from Fl help file**

There you have it! Pretty cool huh?....
** update: to record what you play you will have to push both the"record(the dot) and play( the triangle)" buttons.**
Happy Beat Making To All...
Pz Til Later~..
