Discussion: Best way to import wavs and arrange sets in Ableton 9?

Discussion!

I have been trying to arrange songs in Ableton 9 using imported wavs that I have created in FL Studio.

Every instrument is on separate wav-files, and separate channels in Ableton. But it does not sound as good in Ableton as If I were to export my FL-project as an MP3 or Wav as an whole song.

 

I think that this has to do with reverbs and other effects that gets chopped when I arrange the wavs in different parts (Verse, Chorus, Intro etc.) for use with my Launchpad S.

So my question is: How do others who uses imported wavs, arrange their sets in Ableton? I would love to use as little effects in Ableton as possible. I don't want Ableton to use to much ram and processor power.

Just export/render your FL stems with post processing (i.e. so you render the effects in the wav file).

If you're doing it with loops only then you will need to double the loop in FL and then cut it by half (the end half) in Ableton to ensure that you get the reverb/delay trails sounding correct.

The other method is to rewire into ableton from FL?  Never tried it though.

Or you can sync ableton and FL, setup a virtual audio driver and 'sample' Fruity loops on the fly if you wanted.

 

Basically, there's a lot of options - rendering out your stems is the best method of going between a pair of DAW's in my opinion however, as they're universal.

Thanks for your input.

I'm not sure if I want to rewire since this feel like a certain way to maxing out the ram and processor? Not sure though.

But the "double loops and cut them"-method sounds like something that could work.
