Step 2: Find the Sample Packs

First things first, find the downloaded sample pack on your computer. You saved it in your Downloads folder or elsewhere, so watch for it.

On Windows, the location of the Download folder is C:\Users\your_username\Downloads.

On Mac, you can open it by going to Go, then, Downloads (Option+Command+L).

Step 3: Unzip the Files

If your sample pack is in a ZIP file, unzip it to access the individual samples.

On Windows, the native file compression utility can be utilized. To unzip a file, right-click on the zipped file and select "Extract All." A wizard will guide you through the extraction process, allowing you to choose the destination folder for the extracted files. Once confirmed, the files will be uncompressed and available in the specified location.

On macOS, the built-in Archive Utility serves the purpose of unzipping files. Double-click on the zipped file. This action automatically triggers the Archive Utility, extracting the contents into the same directory as the original zipped file. Alternatively, you can right-click on the zipped file and choose "Open With" followed by "Archive Utility." The extracted files will be readily accessible upon completion.

Step 4: Launch FL Studio

Open up the latest version of FL Studio on your computer. If you still need to install it, download it before moving forward.

Step 5: Create a Project

Start a new project if you want a fresh canvas, or open an existing project where you want to add the samples.

Step 6: Importing the sample packs

Navigate to Options and then click on File Settings.

You've done it! With freshly imported sample packs, FL Studio is now your playground for crafting incredible music. So, let's make some magic and produce music that'll shock the charts!
