hey man whats up? I wanna thank u for ya beats. I try and click everything when I come here. I just got a Line6 TonePort KB37 , and I was wondering how I can attach a sound to the keys in fl, and how I can record with my mic through the kb37 into fl 8 xxl ? Lastly I'd appreciate it if you'd talk about how to obtain your own sound through sampling..aka if I want a beating on the desk beat, how do I record that and import it into fl. Thankx !!!

First of all you will need a way to record into your computer, a stock sound card will work if that's all you have. I found a good tutorial on how to record sound into FL. Follow this link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhWoYkVZ3Nk

To record your voice you need a mic and you also need to learn the how to put sound through the KB37. You'd hook the XLR to your mic and the other end to your KB37. Then you hook the output to your computer and to record follow the same steps as above.

To record any other sound you need a mic to record with and just do the same as in the video. You will be able to cut up the sample once you record it into FL and arrange it however you want.

I hope this helps.
