How To Clean Up Vocals In FL Studio? Best Tip For You

Vocal is a crucial component of Electronic Dance music since it gives the tune an organic touch that cannot be easily achieved with synthesizers. We must ensure that the vocal is well-treated in order for it to blend flawlessly in the mix and prevent any mixing issues.

Today, we’ll demonstrate how to clean up vocals in fl studio‘s native capabilities if you can’t afford to purchase pricey third-party plugins. The idea can also be used in other DAWs.

Let’s get going.

Pitch Correction

The vocal is adjusted to be in key in this step. The best singers occasionally stumble and miss a few notes because they aren’t perfect. Pitcher or newTone can be used for pitch adjustment, but newTone is my personal preference because it gives you greater control over the process. In order to prevent our vocal from being out of tune, we must place its pitch within the scale. The most well-known third-party pitch correction plug-ins are Melodyne and Antares Auto-Tune.

The next thing we must do is eliminate background noises, which are irritating and can degrade the mix. Backtalk, headphone output flowing into the microphone, and computer noises are a few examples of background noises. A noise gate can be used to eliminate the noise. It can be found in Fruity Limiter for FL Studio users. Set your threshold wisely because anything below it will be muffled or silenced. To make your noise gate sound natural, experiment with the release knob. The gain knob determines how many decibels you want the Noise Gate to cut.


De-Essing is mostly used to eliminate sibilance or the “hiss” sound from audio recordings. They will produce harsh high-end frequencies and may irritate listeners. Multiband compressors called de-essers are used to reduce sibilance in vocal recordings. Although we don’t have a de-esser plugin for FL Studio users, you may still accomplish it using Maximus. The de-essing presets can be used, and the bands can be modified to fit your vocal recording.

EQ Treatment

It’s time to eliminate the vocal recording’s resonant and undesirable frequency after the sibilance has been eliminated. For me, I typically begin by adding a high pass filter to the vocal track to remove the undesired low frequency. I then determine and lower the resonant frequencies using a “bell” filter. If you lack the ears to recognize the resonating frequencies, this step could be challenging for novices. When I’m dealing with female vocals, I typically chop off more low frequency.

After dealing with the undesired frequencies, it’s time to deal with the vocal recording’s dynamic range. Humans are not machines. Because of this, we are unable to keep a steady volume while recording the voices. When listening to vocal recordings without any processing, we occasionally notice a volume discrepancy. I enjoy using compressors to regulate the dynamic range. I like Fruity Limiter for FL Studio users since I appreciate having graphics while I’m conducting my compression. Because I don’t want to harm the quality of vocal recordings by over-compressing, I always have a tendency to apply minimal compression.


The vocal recording must remain in the middle of the mix in order for it to retain its strength when played back in mono. As a result, we must ensure that the vocal recording is mono. Stereo imaging plug-ins can be used for this. Fruity Stereo Enhancer makes it simple for FL Studio users to do this. In order to remove any side/stereo signal, I like to blend my stereo separation by 50%.

Here are the processes I do in FL Studio to process my vocal.
