It's amazing you took the time to do this very comprehensive series, even a long time user could benefit from reading it.
Awesome work!

This is the only tutorial I've found on Sytrus apart from a bare bones Image Line tutorial, and a bunch of Youtube videos that are all shallow and incomplete in their own ways. Great stuff!

The irony being that I now use harmor instead of sytrus.

Eriks Sytrus manual is not outdated at all. It is a useful guide into any use of the synths in FL Studio. The basics explained by Erik are also useful in other synths in FL Studio like Harmor for example.

I converted this manual into a PDF, you find it here: [link] [3,36 MB (3 528 681 bytes)]. Converted with Eriks permission obviously. I used an OCR package but it was tedious to get things right so It took some time. Added an Index and Table of Contents.

Regards,
Jens Malmgren

The only thing that would make this more awesome is if it had nice printer-friendly page breaks :)

Because this deserves the permanence of being printed up and bound!

I've tried a couple of times to turn this into a less stupid format without success.

Thanks a million for these tutorials, I thought I knew quite a bit about Sytrus but you're totally filling in all of the blanks and little things I missed along the along!! Imageline should hire you to update their manual!! The synth pack listed in Part 5 won't download for me however, the link goes to a site that appears to be down. If possible, could you send them to me in an email? homemusician@live.ca

Aw man, that's cool. This tutorial has been a life-saver regardless!! I'm on Part 7 right now :D. Just one question, I can't find the Envelope Pitch knob you refer to in the Arp Section. I've been searching and searching and checked Imageline's Forum but can't seem to find how to rescale the vertical grid for the Pitch Envelope to manipulate the avaialabe octaves. Is the knob located in Sytrus or in another area (i.e. General Settings for FL, etc)?

Sorry, sorry, disregard that!! Found it, in my notes on the knob I shouldn't touch unless there's specific reason to :) Thanks again!
