Have you ever seen those photos where there is one color highlighted in the scene and the rest of the image is grayscale? That’s a very basic photo editing technique known as “color splashing.” Don’t they look great?

FL Studio’s move to iOS was unexpected, but their mobile music production suite has really got a lot to offer for when you’re away from your beloved desktop and you have an idea that you just have to get down.

This tutorial will guide you through the steps of producing an idea or even a full song right there on your iPad.
