To put a drum kit on FL Studio follow the following with this step by step tutorial.
Open FL Studio and make sure you are in the Playlist view.
Please note that the following steps guide you to add a drum kit by using a previously saved drum kit. If you would like to add a custom sample as your drum kit, please see our page “How To Put A Custom Drum Kit On FL Studio.”
Click on “Add Media” and select your desired media which will be your drum kit. You can then drag this media into the Playlist to place it wherever you desire, or move it along by clicking and dragging it with your mouse.
You would like to now set the project tempo. Please see our page on “How to Set and Use Tempo in FL Studio” for step-by-step instructions on how to set and use the project tempo.
Once you have successfully set and used the project tempo, click on “Add Automation Clips”. You can then choose each drum kit you would like to add by clicking on each media file. If you would like to change the velocity, please see our article “How to Change Velocity in FL Studio” for step-by-step instructions.
Once you have added each drum kit you would like to have, please click on “Save Playlist As” and name your new playlist or song. Once again, see our article “How to Save and Name a Playlist in FL Studio” for step-by-step instructions on how to save and name a playlist.
Click on the share icon (the little white triangle) at the top of the screen and select “Share”. You should then be taken to your computer. Select FL Studio Project (FLP), open it, and then select “Open Source Code” from the drop down menu. You will be taken to a different program and you should see the file name of your project saved in FL Studio.
Your new drum kit is now ready for use in FL Studio. To use it, click on “Open Browser” and go to the Browser – Drums – Kit folder. Select the desired kit you would like to add to your Playlist. You can then drag it into any channel on the Playlist or move it by dragging it with your mouse. Once inside of a channel, make sure you have a drum pad assigned to each sound by clicking on the left-hand side of each drum pad and selecting the block that corresponds with each sound on your drum kit.
