FL Studio, by Image-Line software, has long been regarded as a premier application for building and editing loop-based audio material. Now with the release of FL Studio 6, FL Studio introduces support for TranzPort, the worldŪs first wireless DAW controller. At last, a control surface that is not only cost effective, it also gives you the freedom of wireless remote control. Step away from your computer, but not out of control. TranzPort has quickly become an indispensable addition in home and professional studios alike.
ŽNative ModeŪ support of TranzPort in FL Studio 6 is accomplished through a special control surface profile already built in to the application. Select the TranzPort as your input MIDI port and controller type, click the žEnableÓ box, and check žEnable MIDI Remote ControlÓ under the main Options and you are ready to go. For full details on installing TranzPort drivers on your PC download the Users Guide (PDF).
There are two PDF documents created specifically for FL Studio 6 users available from the FDG website. The first is FL Studio 6 and TranzPort. This document contains detailed instructions for configuring the TranzPort for use with FL Studio 6. A reference chart listing the full set of controls for FL Studio 6 can be found in this useful document.
The second file, FL Studio 6 Layout, is a single page picture of the TranzPort with overlaid text summarizing the FL Studio feature set. It may be helpful to print this file and have it handy as a quick reference guide.
