Inside Out (VST FL Studio inside Voltage)

Post by zerotonin » Sat Nov 28, 2020 3:11 am

Here's a weird one, but it's fun too. Figured I'd post it in case anyone has identical gear and is experiencing cabin-fever levels of boredom.... :P

I use FL Studio. Because reasons. Don't judge.
I also have the Akai Fire controller for FL studio.
If I use the host module in Voltage to load FL Studio VSTi version, I can use FL as a sequencer, drum-machine, controller, etc. module. It synchs and controls other modules via the various MIDI utility modules. And the excellent thing is that the Akai Fire still works just the same, so I can control FL inside Voltage. Also, the FL vsti still finds all my other MIDI stuff, so I can sync up BeatStep Pro to the FL clock, and control my outboard synths.

Why, you ask?
I don't know. But I did it anyway and it was fun.

If anyone actually wants a patch, haha, I can provide. Don't all speak up at once now....

Ha funny thing is i just did it the other way around. I am also a fl user and own a fire. I posted some instructions to use the fire to Trigger the vm midi to drum trigger. Its at vm facebook page.

Fl is a nice daw. I have been using it since version... 7 i think.
