The last few versions of FL Studio introduced the playlist clips as a contender for the classic blocks view which was the way of arranging your patterns to a song in every version thusfar. The first thing you’ll notice in FL Studio 10 is that the blocks have been replaced fully by playlist clips or so it seems at first glance. Now you’ll eventually find out that the playlist clip view is the way to go and provides you with much more flexibility. Image Line has made the classic block view obsolete in future versions for a good reason. We do understand however that you want to have a chance for a proper goodbye to the classic pattern blocks so here is how you can turn them on:
- Go to Options
- Click on General Settings
- Under ‘Advanced’ tick ‘Enable legacy pattern blocks’
- Click OK
Your Playlist view is now divided between the future clip view and the classic pattern block view again. Now go get back to rocking out those beats!
