How To Add Your Own Samples Folder In FL Studio

Here is how I added my own Samples Folder in FL Studio. If your like me, you probably want to keep all your music production samples in one place. It is good practice to keep things organized & increase work flow! If you need Samples & Drumkits or would like more to add to your collection, here is a free source I have collected through out the years. Please note, these sounds are for beginners, though there are some respected producer kits listed as well.

Step 1.

Create a brand new folder. Label it “SAMPLES”. You can label this folder whatever you choose. It is ideal to remember the location where you created this folder. To make things easy, we are going to create one on our desktop.

To do this on a PC, right click your desktop on an empty area, hover over “New” and left click the option labeled folder. Type the word “SAMPLES” and press enter. You should then see something like this:

Step 2. 

Next you will need to open the  FL Studio Software. If you do not have it, you can download the demo version here for PC & MAC. Once open, left click on the “Options” tab then left click “File settings”

You should see a pop up similar to the following:

You can click the images on this page if they are not visible enough.

Step 3.

Look for “Browser extra search folder” and click  an unused folder slot to choose the samples folder we created.  I will show you a used slot and an unused slot to make sure its clear.

I’ve highlighted the area we want to click.

When clicking the folder, another pop up will appear. Left click”Desktop” and scroll down until you see the “SAMPLES” folder we created. Left click the SAMPLES folder to select it, then click  “Ok” and proceed to step 4.

Step 4.
Next we need to Refresh our data bank in fl Studio.  Usually, near the top left hand corner there is a “Reread structure” button. It simply looks like a curved arrow. Simply left click this button to refresh and the samples folder will appear in your data base for simple and easy use. Again I have highlighted the area we are looking for, just to be clear.

Please click to enlarge if you need to see the picture better.

That’s it! You are all done. Hope this helps and feel free to leave a comment or suggestions.
