Postby oxygenet32; Tue Mar 20, 2012 11:00 am FL Studio GRID Help

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question. I'm legally blind and use FL Studio (Not going to change, love it) but I was wondering if there was a way to make the piano roll grid any easier to see? I find the lines really thin, is there a way to double their thickness or maybe have a total black background with pure white grid lines? I've played with the colors but it doesn't seem to do pure black background with a pure white grid, it's always some faded color that's hard to see :-(

Any help would be VERY appreciated.

The playlist has a small arrow in the top left corner.

There select view > and you can select a custom grid color and invert the grid.

Hope this helps.

Hey there,

Thanks for the advice but i've already tried that, and for some reason if I put the Piano roll grid to a black background - whether I invert the grid of not, the grid is always black or not what i'd expect (If the background is black i'd have thought the grid would be the polar opposite - white).

It's just something that makes drum programming that bit tougher for me, most people can see it no problem i'm sure, but I have a serious eye condition that is leading to blindness. I upgraded to a 27" LED monitor which HAS helped, and it's certainly not a deal breaker for me as FL does everything I could ever need in a sequencer and fits my logic workflow wise (Though I probably work different to most people who use it that's the great thing, it fits your way of thinking).

I think what is confusing is it's called GRID color, where really what it changes is the background color. It would be awesome (I know won't happen sadly) if it had a setting for BACKGROUND color AND a setting for the GRID that sits on top of the background. Would add a lot of usability for my needs :-)

I posted this in the FL Studio Alpha Testers Forum. Let's hope Image Line sees this as something that could be improved on!

Hey, where's the alpha tester's forum? Is it an elitist page that you have to be a "testor" for, or is it just the looptalk page you are talking about?

It's a closed section for testing purposes, yes.
