Signal Routing With Patcher
MULTIBAND COMPRESSION, EQ, REVERB & STEREO SEPARATION
Patcher is a native plugin for FL Studio that allows you to create chains of plugins of unlimited complexity. It is particularly useful for saving your favourite instrument/effect chains for use in future projects.
This is a four-part practical on how to route signals in a plugin chain as part of the mastering process. Apply the techniques and theory demonstrated here to create your own Patcher presets and improve your workflow using FL Studio and Patcher.

► Multiband Compression
Start by jumping into the deep end by creating the multiband compressor using FL Parametric EQ and FL Limiter. This will be the first effect in the chain; though, not necessary; it is a good start to get the hang of patcher.
Create a simple 5 band EQ to serve with the multiband compressor. We will put a spin on the XYZ controller using the point tension. Point tensions become useful when making quick, slow, small, or big adjustments
We will use FL Reverb 2 and FL Send to create a reverb send effect within our preset. Create your own depth and space by mixing up your parameters. Maybe add a delay, or chorus effect to that to make it more interesting.
► Stereo Separation
We will be creating stereo separation within Maximus using all 4 band selectors + an additional Maximus. This set of stereo separation will also control the space of the reverb.
