The Split by Channel Feature in FL Studio

Split by channel is a really handy feature that lets you split a pattern with multiple MIDI elements (synths, samples etc.) into multiple patterns. It's also really easy to do.

  • Start off by selecting the pattern that you want to split (by clicking on it).
  • Right click the pattern selector in the toolbar (as shown on the pitcture down below)

  • Select the option called Split by channel
  • You'll now see multiple patterns placed in the playlist. Each of them contains the specific element that earlier were summed up in only one pattern.

This feature is great if you quickly through together an idea into only one pattern and later want to organized your project. By having all elements in their own patterns you'll be able to edit and remove the elements as you wish, instead of working with only one pattern.
