HarmlessNES: Nintendo (NES) Chiptune presets for Harmless

Here’s some presets for making chiptunes using Image-Line’s Harmless. I generated the waveforms in Cool Edit Pro according to the same spec the NES synthesizer chip uses (including using only 4 bits of depth, etc). You can learn more about NES chip tunes here.

Included in this pack are 3 pulse wave variants and 1 triangle wave.

The original NES used 2 channels with pulse, 1 with triangle, 1 with white noise, and one for DPCM samples.

If you find these presets useful, please consider making a small donation.

One Hundred Harmless Presets

Recently, Image-Line, the makers of FLStudio, released a new synthesizer, Harmless. It uses both additive and subtractive synthesis techniques to get some interesting sounds. Until the end of the year you can buy Harmless for as little as $9.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with this synth, so here’s a hundred presets with various sounds. Categories include

Knock Basses
Sound FX
Percussion (incl Hats, Kicks and Snares)

Control Protools’ BOOM with FLStudio’s Step Sequencer

As folllow up on my previous post regarding using FLStudio as a MIDI controller, here’s a template so you can use FLStudio’s step sequencer to control Boom in Protools. Boom has a step sequencer, but it is limited to 4 beats per pattern and only 16 patterns. You can trigger the individual drum sounds via MIDI, but the notes are assigned in a somewhat random way. This template makes it much easier to program in grooves longer than 4 beats and also arrange various patterns.

This template uses the Protools 8 Dashboard and needs a virtual midi cable installed to work properly.. it’s set up to use Port 1 of FLStudio. Unzip into a folder inside of FLStudio\Data\Projects\Templates\

Using FLStudio as a MIDI controller for Protools 8

Using this dashboard with FLStudio, one can control Protools just like a hardware MIDI controller. This means one has the ability to record MIDI note and automation data from FLStudio directly into Protools. In addition, one can control the dashboard with other hardware controllers, easily allowing any controller to be integrated into Protools.

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.

FL Studio Skin: Colored Numeric Knobs

Sometimes it’s tough to see those tiny little knobs in FL Studio so I made these knobs. They display numbers and are also color coded so you can see the exact values very easily. The two different ways of expressing the information also help reinforce the values so they’re easy to remember if you’re messing around with different stuff.

All the artwork is based off of existing FL Studio elements so it matches well enough. the color scheme is also very similar to the newer FLS plugs.
