Once you've downloaded and installed FlexibeatzII, probably the quickest and easiest way to get to know it is...to just play around with it! Or, you might want to first go File>Open on the main screen and select 'Flexitreat.FB'. Various .wav sound files will then automatically load up into some channels from the 'data' subdirectory in your Program directory, and a two measure pattern will get configured. Just press the 'Run' command button to hear it. Change the sounds, edit the pattern notes, move sliders etc and hear the effect they have.
A Bit Deeper
If you already have plenty of .wav files of drums, instruments, loops, vocals and effects, put them in the 'data' subdirectory under the FlexibeatzII Program directory, and then you can select any of these sounds for any channel. If you don't yet have a good range of .wav samples, please visit:
These are fantastic sites for samples, all freely downloadable and useable in your music. I've only packaged a few samples with the FlexibeatzII Installer, to keep the size of the Installer as small as possible. If you want to quickly add a few more drum sounds, here's some assorted kicks, snares, hats, cymbals, crashes, toms, claps I downloaded from the above sites and zipped up. Simply extract these into your 'data' subdirectory:
Once you've assembled a good range of samples, I recommend following along with the 'Pattern/Song Creation' section of the FlexibeatzII Help/Tutorial PDF. After that, try synthesizing your own sounds with FlexibeatzII and getting creative with effects and patterns.
