How To Sidechain in FL Studio 12 – Kick and Bass Clarity – Fruity limiter

Hello lovely people!
This is one method I use for sidechaining, it’s probably the quickest and most controllable/flexible method in FL Studio 12.
I know that other methods exist however I have been asked for the method I use to get a clear and crisp kick.
Side chaining can be used for creating subtle definition between bass elements or for drastic sound shaping as can be heard in many EDM and Future Bass tracks.

In this tutorial I show how Fruity Limiter can be used as a very simple yet versatile plugin for Sidechaining Kick and Bass (or any two elements). Kick and Bass is/are a big problem area for beginners because they are so critically important to the feel of so many style of music yet it can be hard to reference bass on regular speakers and headphones. Clearing up some of the clashes using side chain compression is a simple and effective way to regain clarity.

For those who are asking, the link to the song being mixed is “SPARKS”, which you can hear here:

No matter which DAW you use or what equipment you have, I’m determined to help you succeed. I try to share as much as I can about the industry and give an insight into the world of music production and the business behind it by showing you how to release and sell your music online.

Being an FL Studio Power User I also focus tutorials on getting the most out of FL Studio, My DAW of choice.

Micahel Wynne is a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen).
In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo “Miavono”.

In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on “In The Mix”. I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.
