Edison Recording Options tutorials gratis free



Edison is a fully integrated audio editing and recording tool. Edison loads into an effect slot (in any mixer track) and will then record or play audio from that position. You may load as many instances of Edison as you require in any number of Mixer Tracks or Effects slots. To open Edison press Ctrl+E in a Sampler Channel, or load from the effects menu into mixer track/s.

1. Transport Controls

2. Recording Options

These options take effect when Record (1) is selected from the Edison transport controls. Load Edison into one (or more) effects slot(s) in any number of mixer tracks and each instance will then record from that position. Alternatively it is possible to record directly into the Playlist.

  • Now - Audio recording begins immediately the option is selected. To stop recording, de-select record mode (1).
  • On input - Recording begins when an audio signal is received. To set the trigger level, left-click on the Peak Meter (6) and move the mouse up/down. Note: Edison uses a pre-record buffer so that transients will not be lost when a signal is received. In other words, you do not need to make a 'triggering' sound to guarantee early transients that may be below the trigger threshold.
  • Input - Recording automatically pauses during silence and resumes on audio input. To set the trigger level, left-click on the Peak Meter (6) and move the mouse up/down.
  • On play - Recording starts when playback is started from the main transport controls. 'On play' mode will also place accurate song start markers when Play starts/stops or the Playlist loops back to the start of the song. This is useful for recording multiple takes so that you can easily select the region(s) you wish to export to wave files and include in your song.
  • In new project - Starts the recording in a new project.
  • Max - Sets the maximum recording time (in minutes). When the time is exceeded, Edison will wrap and overwrite the previously recorded sample. Note: The Max feature is useful for continuous background recording (in conjunction with the RAM-sparing Input mode) so that you don't miss stellar performances while jamming. However, be aware that recordings longer than 5 minutes use progressively more CPU during the wrap phase, slowing the GUI considerably.

Note on Bit-depth: Edison records audio using 32-bit float quantization and preserves the full quality of soundcard quantizations above 16-bit. FL Studio receives audio from the soundcard as a pre-digitized stream. Bit-depths set in Edison have no effect on the original bit-depth of the recording (set in the soundcard options) and affect only the stored and saved bit-depth of the sample.

Exporting recorded audio to the Playlist

Three alternatives for exporting audio from Edison to FL Studio are:

  1. Tools > Sequencing
    • Send to playlist as audio clip (Shift+C) - Dumps the selection to the Playlist as an Audio clip.
    • Send to selected Channel - Dumps the selection to the selected Channel.
  2. Drag / copy sample / move selection - Left-click on the button and drag to the desired location. The selected region in the Sample Edit Window (or whole sample if no selection is made) will be copied and moved to any compatible location in FL Studio, e.g. Sampler channels, Fruity Slicer, DirectWave, the Playlist etc. Right-click to copy the selection to the clipboard.
  3. Save and load - Saves the audio/selection to a file and re-imports it through the Browser.

Notes: Prior to exporting your audio to the Playlist use the Edit properties (F2) dialog so that audio-clips behave as expected:

    • Clip auto-naming - Edison will use a default naming system unless the audio clip named in the sample properties.
    • Tempo sync - To set the audio-clip so that it will be automatically stretched if the project tempo is changed (useful to keep rhythmic samples in time), click the 'default' button in the tempo settings panel. If the file is not set as 'tempo-sync' or has no tempo (0), it will not be stretched.
    • 16 or 32 bit? - If your soundcard was set to record at 16 bit then it is reasonable to convert the file to 16 bit int prior to saving to disk, otherwise leave the file at 32 bit float.

Loop Recording

While it is possible to Loop Record in the Playlist, the optimal method is to use Edison as follows -

    • Open Edison in a mixer track that will receive the audio you wish to record. Both internal and or external sources can be selected though the FL Studio Mixer.
    • Select the record 'ON PLAY' option.
    • Play your Playlist or Pattern loop and record your performance. On each loop Edison will automatically place section markers ('Song jump') on the loop-back points.
    • Press stop.
    • Ctrl+click Edison labels to select the take/s you want to use.
    • Drag/drop it in the Playlist using the drag-sample button. Note: Edison will automatically set the sample properties to the current project tempo so that the recording will stretch as the project tempo is changed.

Memory Considerations

Edison operates exclusively in RAM (memory) and is designed for working with samples or small songs, not for recording hours of audio. 44.1 kHz, 32-bit samples consume RAM at the rate of approximately 20 Meg per minute (1.2 Gig per hour) and edit operations can easily consume 4x the original sample size while processing the sample.
