8. Testing Chord Progression.
OK, now let's have some fun. but first 1 more think, since only System Exclusive is filtered you need manually set same tempo in FL Studio as on KORG .
After Tempo is set Start Sequencer in FL Studio and using Left Side of Keybord (Lower) start playing , if everything went good Korg should already play any chord your choice
If not ,...something is missing and you have to come back to point where is a problem and fixed.
9.Creating Full test (all Tracks).
Before you jump to start making real style I want to continue tutorial, make sure I'll cover enough information to avoid future mistakes.
Assuming previous Test Chord progression went successful, now we going to create more track.
First we create some Beat. Open piano roll on CH 10 Drums. On left side of Piano roll you should see some names of Drums Elements.
Is a midi standard Roland GM/GS drums set, which is very close to sets in Korg, but not exactly.
Try to make something simple, is only for testing. When you open piano roll on track CH 11 Perc. you not going to see any name, only notes.
That's making more tricky to do, but if you planning use Drums kit for Channel 11,
on the time writing notes you can temporary change assign channel in Channel Setting from 11 to 10 and names going to appear .
Remember to change back before testing or saving!!!
During a test you can change assign sounds on Korg to have more clear final result.
**Every time you start FL Studio Sequencer program going to sent to Korg Program chang data and put sounds assign by Midi Out plugins.
If this is issue for you you can filter out on Korg MIDI In "Program Change".
Remember to write all in C major only.
while you playing you still can adjust all parameters in real time (on FL Studio).
If after few test all seems OK we can move forward.
10. Making Style (all Elements).
Now we ready to create entire style. I'm not going to cover step by step what must be in which elements, I hope whoever reading this knows this already.
Only few reminders. Remember about different between CV1 and CV2, all notes must be in one chord range, Drums has not requite more that 1 CV (drums cannot be transposed).
You can make a style using only mouse, but if you prefer using keyboard here is how.
To using keyboard + mouse you need to exit record mode in KORG and be in Style mode with Local on disable, split key off, and make sure on MIDI OUT Ch 01 is set to Upper 1.
MIDI IN setup stay in same mode Ch 09 - CH 16 assign to Bass - Acc 5.
You be available to play notes for selected in FL Studio Channel, even record them directly.
You be not have possibility to check how style response on chord transpose .
TIP: Try make much you can, then switch record mode and test each pattern (element).
When all be almost ready (you still can adjust later) we start getting ready to Testing All.
11. Testing Style (all Elements).
In this part I'll show you easy way to test all elements at once.
For this we going to build a song in Playlist mode in FL studio.
Few tips before we start, we going to create 2 same patterns , only different will be : 1 for CV 1, 2-nd for CV2
Think like you create a song, set fills, break, use all variation, Intro and Endings.
