Rewiring FLStudio into ProTools with both both mono and stereo busses

Here’s a useful template for those who are into rewiring FLS into other hosts. I like to bounce out of FLS directly into protools via rewire, but one thing that was bugging me was the fact that FLStudio doesn’t support mono tracks. I did some research and it seems using the Fruity Mute plug in is the best option since it doesn’t affect levels like the pan and stereo separation knobs. I set up the mute plug in for the mono channels in the template so it’s easy to just assign the tracks.

The first 10 mixer tracks correspond to FL1 – FL10 in your rewire host and should be used on stereo busses. Tracks 11 – 20 are assigned to rewire busses FL11 – FL15, and are split into mono busses.

The Master track is routed to rewire bus FL16 as a stereo bus. But think of the master as only the “preview” bus — I disabled the routing of assigned audio to the master because the mono output doesn’t sound right being run though the FLS mixer. Unassigned audio will go to FL16, as will sample browser previewing.

If you load up the template while in rewire mode, the next time you reopen FLS in rewire, it will start with this template.
