Using Plugins in fruity
It is possible use VST and DXi plugins within the Fruity Loops Application, although some Steinberg VSts won't work.
With most plugins you can set the note length. Setting the note length to a long note will be the equivelent to holding a down a key
on a Keyboard which is a big advantage over samples because, samples will only play for as long
as they were recorded.
During the plugin installation process, it will normally ask for the VST plugin directory. If you have Cubase or Logic installed
it will normally default to their VST plugin directories. This is fine as long as you copy and paste the .dll file that it
installed to that directory to the Fruity VST plugin folder which will be somewhere like "C:\program files\FLStudio4\plugins\vst".
If you don't the plugin may not work in Fruity.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to get a plugin ready for use in fruity.
1. Open FL Studio Application.
2. Right Click on the top sample in the step sequencer window and choose "Insert Channel">"More..."
3. You will then be presented with a list of plugins that are installed on your computer. If you have recently installed a new plugin,
then click the "Refresh" button at the bottom and choose "fast Scan (recommended)". It will the tell you at the bottom whether it
has found any new plugins or not.
To select a plugin, you must tick the the box to the left of it. It will add a little "F" to the box.
Once you've selected your plugin, click the [X] in the top right hand corner of the window.
The plugin is now setup to be used in Fruity. You only need to do this once for each plugin as it will automatically be in the plugin list
next time you use Fruity.
