If you don’t know yet how to create a new pattern in FL Studio, here’s a very quick lesson for you.
Having a new pattern in FL Studio gives you the possibility to work in a fresh sheet, so to speak. A fresh sheet allows you to make another melody or rhythm on the Channel Rack that you can then use on the Playlist. The playlist is where you can build your entire track.
How to access a new pattern in FL Studio
The easiest way to access a new pattern, is to left-click on the “Pattern selector” (a bar at the top of FL Studio), hold and drag up to the next number. This new number represents your new pattern.
But what if you need to add an extra pattern in between two existing ones? Or what if you want a new pattern in let’s say spot number 10? How do you do that?
How to create a new pattern in FL Studio
Luckily, FL Studio also allows you to insert a new pattern anywhere you want. So, if you need to add an extra pattern, right-click on the “Pattern selector” and select “Insert one”. This adds a new pattern on the position of the current one. All the Patterns above it, will move up a spot.
This way, you can also remove a pattern by right-clicking on the “Pattern selector” and select “Delete”, which immediately cuts out the pattern from the list.
This is really all there is to it. Piece of cake!
