Ever wanted to know how to make synthwave? In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make synthwave in FL Studio using all stock plugins and drums.

We’ll be going over sound selection for drums and synths, and talking a bit about some other characteristics that make up the genre. Even if you’re not really into making synthwave I think this tutorial will be pretty helpful for you.

To make things easier, I created a drum kit of a few retro stock FL Studio sounds. In case you don’t feel like sifting through a bunch of drum samples, I included a download link to the drum kit in the description of the video.

Synthwave AKA retrowave is a genre of electronic music that has been growing in popularity over the past few years. The genre is heavily influenced by video game and movie soundtracks from the 80’s. Retrofuturism is a big part of the music and artwork (depicting an idea of the future from the point of view of the past). The art plays a big role in the overall sound and vibe of synthwave.
