FL Studio User Guide
Using Satellite Sessions in FL Studio is super easy. Here is how to get started:
Download and install Satellite Sessions from mixedinkey.com/satellite
After installation is complete, restart FL Studio.
Satellite Sessions will be in your AU or VST folder marked Installed > Generators
Satellite Audio will be in your AU or VST folder marked Installed > Effects
Add Satellite Sessions to a new, blank MIDI channel.
Create New Session
Enter a name for the Session.
You will be prompted to enter the Key and Scale of your project. Leave blank if undecided.
Changes to the bpm or sample rate in your project will generate a Sync button in Satellite Sessions. Click ‘Sync’ to continue.
Change the Project Mode to ‘Song’ in FL Studio to prevent default 16-beat looping.
You are the Host of the session. Click ‘Invite’ to invite collaborators.
Join a Session
Enter the Session Invitation Code (provided by the session host) to access the Session.
Any pre-shared audio stems will be visible and audible in your Satellite Sessions plugin. Press play in FL Studio to play the stems inside Satellite Sessions. They do not need to be downloaded to FL Studio to be heard, and only you can hear what you are listening to.
If you wish, download any stems in the Session to your FL Studio project by dragging the top-right corner of each stem to a spare audio channel.
Access and load your previous sessions here.
Access your invitation history.
Add Satellite Audio to any channel you wish to share. This includes MIDI Instrument channels, sub-mix and Group channels, and Send/Return FX channels.
You can either drag Satellite Audio to your Mixer Insert strip, or direct to any channel in your Channel Rack.
PRO TIP: Satellite Audio auto-names channels Stem 1, Stem 2 etc. Rename each channel as you go, so you know which channel is which in Satellite Sessions.
PRO TIP: Satellite Audio captures any audio up to the point in the insert chain that Satellite Audio is located. That means it will capture the audio after processing by compressors, EQs, effect plugins etc if Satellite Audio is placed after such plugins. To capture the dry signal, place Satellite Audio before any processing plugins.
Press play in FL Studio.
Any Satellite Audio-enabled channel will now capture and upload their audio direct to Satellite Sessions in sync with FL Studio’s playhead.
You can trigger MIDI Instruments or audio samples, or play live into your Satellite Audio-enabled channel(s).
Anyone in your Session can now listen to, or download, all stems in the Session.
