The pattern window is pretty much the starting point for almost every type of project you will involved with. Any sound that you need to use inside FLStudio from VST to sample to built-in FLStudio generator can be accessed from the pattern window. Your workflow might vary from other people, but we'll go through some very basic steps on the ways to get sounds into the pattern. When you first open FLStudio or create a new project, you will be presented with the pattern window. Depending on your settings, you may see a row or several rows of buttons. Adding Sound Before we start putting sounds into the pattern, I should explain that you can have as many patterns as you want. There are a couple of ways to actually insert a new channel you could drag a sample from windows explorer or FLStudio Browser into the pattern window or from the main menu's Channels>Add One. They way I prefer to add channels depends on what I need. Channels

FM (Frequency Modulation) uses a different approach - pure tones (sine waves) processed in such a way that additional harmonics are created (one sine wave modulates the frequency of another) and added to the signal to produce the final sound. Unlike sub-synths, the basic module of the FM synth is called an 'operator', which includes a pure tone oscillator (sine wave) and an articulation section. At the basic level the articulation section is at least a simple ADSR volume envelope. FM synthesizers contain two or more operators (Sytrus supports up to six operators). Sytrus Implementation NOTE: If you want to create your own Sytrus patches or modify existing ones, it is recommended to check the Sytrus processing diagram.
