How to Use a MIDI Keyboard With FL Studio


Music production is raised to the next level with the appropriate tools. To create music in FL Studios, you need a midi keyboard controller, which allows sound control within the FL Studios program. The keyboard is used to program drum patterns as well as instrument patterns, and is easy to set up.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • USB port cable
  • FL Studios program
