FL Studio (Part XII): Rendering A Song

FL Studio files are not a audio file that anyone can listen to, unless the listener has a copy of FL Studio installed on their computer. The entire point of creating a song is to create something that can be distributed to people who use common devices and softwares to hear what you have created. In order to accomplish this, we must render the FL Studio file into an actual audio format. In this instance, we will render our song as an MP3 (Moving Pictures Expert Group) or WAV (Microsoft Wavetable) file. FL Studio will actually allow you to save or render to .OGG and .MID (MIDI) files, but those cannot be played back on standard playback devices like a Smart Phone, Personal Computer, or media player. Only MP3 and WAVs are allowed files types for the  purpose of standard playback.

  1. Open your “My First Song Mastered” file
  2. Click on File
  3. Choose “Export”
  4. Choose “MP3 File” or "WAV" file
  5. Save the file to your “Digital Audio Workstation” folder as “My First Song”
  6. Click on “Start”

When the Render box disappears, you have completed the creation and rendering of your very first FL Studio song. This .mp3 or .wav file can be uploaded to a phone, tablet, website, burned to a disk and any other manner of listening to media via device or software.

Congratulations! You have finished.
