Hi everyone, my name is David Kitts. I am 20 years old, living near Dallas, TX, USA, and am pursuing a career in audio production in the music industry. I currently run sound for a couple of clubs in the area and am working on becoming a certified pro tools operator to help get headed in the right direction towards my ultimate goals of heading up my own recording studio. I do record when possible from my home studio as well.


If you would like to contact me for any reason, I rarely am able to get on here to check my bandamp account, so if you send a message to my inbox I may reply, but it may be several weeks or even months. If you would like a response a bit sooner, drop me a line at my email..
I will get back to you ASAP!!

Thanks guys!

Most synths have one or more LFOs or Low Frequency Oscillators. These can be used to modulate many different things depending on the synths capabilities, but there is generally an option to map the lfo to cutoff or filter frequency.

Also, if you are working on general audio and not just within a synth module, you can record automation and adjust the cutoff knob of your filter as necessarily. Or you can draw in automation in a repeated pattern (a simple triangle wave would be pretty easy to draw)

And lastly, if you want to escape VST filters altogether, you just need to understand that the cutoff knob you are playing with is just a LPF or low pass filter. I don't know if you are familiar with EQs or not, but this is where you designate a frequency and bandwith (or 'Q') and all frequencies above the designated one will be attenuated or cut entirely. The shape of the curve depends on the gain and Q setting. Therefore, if you want to create this effect without using a VST filter, simply pull open your EQ, turn on the band on the far right (high) side of the graph, change it from notch or high shelf to lowpass or highcut. Then you can automate the frequency of that EQ band and achieve the same effect.

awww thank you kings! This is the first time I've had someone mention my birthday on here before over the years, I really appreciate it!

Also it's crazy to think that I'm 20 now, and when I wrote this tutorial I was 16! hahaha. I still love hearing that people are still using this even though it is woefully out of date.

Wow, I guess FL Studio has changed quite a bit over the pst 3 years... o.0

Anyways, I don't really fully understand the problem you're describing, but my best suggestion would be to toy with the different tools (selected in the upper left corner.... unless that's changed too!) and see if any of them give you the desired results.

Thanks! I love hearing how many people I've been able to help.

Oh, and it was the number 1 result on Google for a long time, until Google bought youtube. Now its the second result after a youtube video - go figure >_
