Item description for FL Studio in Use by Roman Petelin...
Electronic musicians and composers will create songs or loops only minutes after launching the software with this guide to FL Studio (formerly Fruity Loops), a complete virtual studio application. How to streamline the recording of multitrack musical compositions is explained in order to create complex songs and realistic guitar loops with 32-bit internal mixing and advanced MIDI support. Musicians are then shown how the resulting song or loop can be exported to a WAV/MP3 file and how MIDI events can be exported to a standard MIDI file. Preparing FL Studio for effective work, carrying out the main operations, building patterns in Step Sequencer, creating a melody in the Piano Roll view, and assembling and mixing a composition using Playlist and Mixer are also described.

Reviews - What do customers think about FL Studio in Use?
ugh!! Jul 3, 2007
Terribly written. could have been much more - perhaps like a recipe type tutorial book. Vague steps-by-steps... Information readily and freely available on the internet.
Not Helpful to Beginners and Worthless to Advanced Users Oct 10, 2006
Petelin and Petelin have created a very well-padded book (it contains more useful information on several VSTi plugins that can be used with FL Studio than it does for FL Studio itself) that is very spare on useful information having to do with using FL Studio. Most of the FL Studio related content is handled better by Image Line's own FL Studio help file and the tutorial videos available to all registered users on the FL Studio website.
Arranged more like a help file than a book, this manuscript simply covers the basic functions of FL Studio in rudimentary fashion, never really explaining in depth exactly how to use the tools found in the program. For example, if one turns to the scant index looking for mention of how to record, one finds only one mention of recording and that is "recording the guitar." If you turn to that page (237), you'll find only a few paragraphs about recording guitar, in general and no mention of how to do so in FL Studio. Since the basic function of FL Studio is that of a recording environment, this is an inexcusable omission. There is almost nothing in this book that would tell a beginning user how to begin recording multitrack compositions and that is what most users are going to buy the book expecting to learn.
Since the book is of no use to beginners, I can assure you that no experienced user of FL Studio is going to find anything new or helpful here, either. Better to read the Loop Talk message board on the FL Studio website, where you can find tips and tricks galore, as well as ready answers to your questions about FL Studio.
Trying to glean any useful information from this book that can get you started making music in FL Studio is a highly frustrating experience. I consider my time spent doing so a complete waste and my money wasted, as well.
