Creating a Template in FL Studio,

Increase Your Workflow in FL Studio (Create a Template)

Creating a template within FL Studio is actually quite easy. It takes you about 5-10 minutes, but saves you major time in the long run.

Also, once you get your first template set up, you’ll start to realize you make beats a certain way. So when that time comes, just simply go back and change up your template again, modifying it to suite your needs for quicker beat making ;).

Save Yourself 100 Clicks EACH Mix,

For me, I have EQ’s and compressors on about 30-40 of my mixer tracks. Yes, it takes a bit longer for FL Studio to open up.. but I feel it’s worth having my FL Studio set up for me, each time I open a fresh instance.

Making a FL Studio Template is Very Simple.

File -> New from Template -> Empty

I like to start from Empty allowing me to start from scratch. This means no plugins are open; everything is bare.

Now from here, it’s all up to you 😉 — You have to think, “What do you think would help you out as you make your beat?”. Again, as you go along, you’ll start to figure out your workflow, and how to set up your FL Studio to suite your needs.

After you’ve set up all your mixer tracks with EQ’s/compressors, opened up the VSTs you want open, and set up your master channel with the effects for mastering (and an audio meter), it’s now time to save it!

File -> Save As -> Templates -> Minimal -> Make a New Folder (Name it My Templates) -> Save your Template as, Beatmaking

If you do sound design, you can also set up a different template, and save it Sound Design. This allows you to switch in between the templates for each skill, making sound design easy with its plugins, and beatmaking quick with its plugins.

Free AMAZING T-RackS Meter,

A meter on your master channel is very important. It allows you to see, and understand, what’s going on inside your track! You can either use FL Studio’s Wave Candy, or, I’d highly recommend IK Multimedia’s T-RackS Metering (Free!).

Remember, you can change your template WHENEVER you want, just always keep in mind, “If I were to do it this way, would it save me time while making the next beat!”.

Annoying Aftermath,

Once you mix with your template, and have gotten so used to your style, there is something sad to mention about using a template that suites you. Once you go back to your older beats, where you didn’t use the template while making the beat.. guess what 🙁 .

That beat is exactly how you made it, and everything is set up how it was before. No EQ’s on mixer tracks etc. You have to open up all those EQ’s by hand once again!

But at least you have something to look forward to in all your new beats! Once your FL Studio template is set up, everything will be a very smooth beatmaking and mixing process!
