Mixing with a Midi Controller in FL Studio,
If you don’t have motorized faders like these, or the Behringer BCF2000, it’s pretty hard to mix properly with your sliders. The Axiom 49 (2nd Gen), is no exception. Same goes for any other faders, that are not motorized!
Mixing with a mouse is cool, and honestly, it is more accurate, and faster. However, at times, it is a bit draining, plus, when seeing others working on huge mixing consoles, tweaking knobs, you right away want to get that hands on feel while you are mixing as well!
I’ll tell you one things, mixing with sliders is a lot of fun, but FL Studio makes it really hard. Even with the motorized faders. But, let’s get to the workaround.
Using the Global Function,
When using the global, switching from 1, to 2, to 3, this allows for essentially, another set of sliders. You can easily switch in between your mixer tracks to mix your WHOLE TRACK.
However, there is a downfall. Remember, I said if your sliders aren’t motorized, it’s just not the same.
When ever you go back to your next set of sounds, so for example, if you’re on global channel 2, and change a few faders/sliders, now, go back to global channel 1, guess what?
When you go to move those sliders again.. they are in a different place, and your volume will change as soon as you move them. This is where the motorized is awesome, it will adjust to the exact spot the mixer track is at!
It’s Fun Though! — Try it Out!
Nonetheless, it is fun to try it out, just for the fun of it!
Watch the video, and see if mixing becomes that much more enjoyable!
