FL Studio (previously known as Fruity Loops) is a digital music production application developed by Image-Line Software. FL Studio allows for multiple instrument tracks to be played and previewed at once. These instrument tracks can be combined with a wide array of effects and mastering tools. When previewing a large number of tracks and effects, you will often hear static and audio distortion that can be described as "crackling" or "popping." This distortion can be remedied by altering the buffer length found within the Audio Settings menu.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click on the "Options" menu in the FL Studio tool bar. The tool bar is located in the top left corner of the FL Studio application window.

  2. 2

    Click on "Audio Settings" in the Options menu drop-down box.

  3. 3

    Adjust the buffer length slider in the Audio Properties section of the Audio Settings menu. Move the slider to the right to increase the buffer length and reduce the amount of distortion.

  4. 4

    Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the Audio Settings menu to save your slider settings.

Tips and warnings

  • You can adjust the buffer length slider while previewing your current project to find the perfect setting before exiting the menu. Saving your project will also save the position of the buffer length slider for all future projects.
