Multiple Arrangements is one of the notable features of FL studio as most of the DAWs in the market do not support multiple arrangements. FL Studio 20 is designed in such a way that you can switch between different arrangements. If you are in a confused state to choose between two instruments you try both at the same time.
Time signature changes
The predominant western popular music is composed in same time signature which is 4/4. Most of us know that there are different time signatures like 3/4, 5/4, 7/4 and a lot more. We have no idea why most of the artists are confining themselves with just 4/4. FL Studio has a great feature to change the time signatures in the entire playlist. All you need to do is Shift+Alt+T and click accept which will change the time signature of the selected file.
This is a very important feature as it can save a lot of energy of the CPU if you are working with a lot of plugins. To do this, right click on the track and select consolidate – from song start. Now you can see that the track is an audio bounce on the playlist. This feature will help a lot when it comes to creativity. You can easily throw audio into sampler or Edison which will make the sound designing process much easier.
Grouped Tracks hiding
Even though hiding the grouped tracks does not make a huge difference, it does have a little bit f impact. It will come in handy if you have a lot of tracks to work on. One can come to know the true potential of this feature when they have to work on more number of automation clips.
